Booking Information

To ensure your hunt is firmly booked I require a deposit of 50% of the cost of your hunt. With this deposit please enclose a note that includes the number of hunters in your group and the species each hunter wishes to hunt, and the number of non-hunters if any in your group. All permits are limited so be precise when listing the species. I will need one complete name, email address, home address and phone number so I have a contact person for the group.

If I have not emailed you a hunting contract and a liability waiver please ask for them. They must be filled in by each member of your hunting party even if a member is a non-hunter. They are legal documents so they must be filled in correctly or they will need to be redone. Each must be returned with the required deposit for a complete booking. Make copies for each member of your party.

When the deposit, hunting contract and liability waiver are received I will contact you to confirm your booking and ensure all details are correct. Always carry a copy of your hunting contract for proof of your hunt if asked by customs.

Final payment of your hunt will be expected upon arrival and must be made in guaranteed funds only. Cash or bank drafts are acceptable. Under no circumstances will personal checks or money orders be accepted for final payment.

Booking a year or more in advance:

If booking a year in advance, a deposit of 10% of your hunt / per hunter will hold your hunt until the December before your hunt. At this time the remainder of your deposit must be sent in order to continue to hold your hunt date.Transportation

Import Regulations

Check with your local authorities for import regulations into your country and any country you may be travelling through.
Remember – export permits may be required for each country you leave.

Meat Left Behind

Clients who do not want their wild game meat or parts of their wild game meat must still have this unwanted meat processed at their cost. You may leave the processed meat in hunting camp and we will distribute it to the needy of the area. The needy thank you for this gift.

Hunting Camp

Our camp is built for hunting, so it is rustic but comfortable. It consists of kitchen/dining cabin, 2 12×16 wood heated cabins for hunters and 1 for the guides. Each cabin has one twin bed and three single beds with its own mattress (bring your own sleeping bag). Each cabin contains a wood heater, solar light, sink and a bucket of water for washing. Yes, we do have a shower house too.

Our kitchen -with cook- supplies a hearty breakfast before our hunting day starts. We will pack a lunch for the mid-day meal, as we will hunt all day and eat in the field. At the end of the day, we will return to the camp for a relaxing supper and conversation.

Hunting Terrain and Methods

When hunting moose we are often sitting in a good area for calling, still and quite is the name of the game here. While bear hunting we are often touring with a four wheeler or truck to spot

 a bear, then the stock begins. Our hunting terrain, for the most part is flat land. We have a mixed boreal forest of pine, spruce, aspen, willow, alder, birch and buckbrush. Generally speaking, we can start hunting about 100 yards from the camp. We will usually go on foot or use ATV’s. Depending on the species being hunted, we may use a pickup as well.

When you harvest your Trophy, we will prepare it in the field for transport and then haul it back to camp—after pictures of course.

Weather

Who can really answer this question? The month of May generally offers warm spring temperatures, ranging from 50 to 70 degrees F. (or 10 to 22 degrees C). During the fall season September should average 45 to 70 degrees F (8 to 22 degrees C). October temperatures may be 32 degrees to 60 degrees F. (0 to 15 degrees C), and nights may bring below-freezing temperatures. Early November could be -15 to +40 degrees F. (-10 to +5 degrees C). If you have the room bring extra clothing just in case.
