This outfitter offers two options for his moose hunts. Option #1 is a fly-in hunt and Option #2 is reached via truck. Both are excellent hunts with nearly identical success rates. Tags are guaranteed so no draw is required.

Option #1: Hunt Canadian moose in the remote backcountry of northern British Columbia near the headwaters of the Skeena River and bordering Spatsizi Wilderness Park. Base camp is accessed via a float plane from Smithers, BC. Some hunts are conducted from base camp and others from spike camps. This is not a horseback hunt.

This outfitter takes a small number of clients each year on his exclusive territory and has a reputation for going the extra mile to get his clients on animals. Moose are one of his specialty species and past clients have enjoyed an 80%+ shot opportunity. Bulls typically run from 40-60 inches with the average being 45-50 inches with good thick paddles.

In addition to seeing plenty of game, hunters enjoy some of the most pristine wilderness there is. Be sure to bring your camera.

Includes: meals, lodging, hotel arrangements in Smithers, field care of meat and trophies and government royalties. Not included: float plane charter fee, license and tags, hotel accommodations and meals in Smithers, trophy crating and shipping, liquor, tobacco and gratuities.

Getting there: fly into Vancouver and then to Smithers via Air Canada. Arrive in Smithers the day prior to the start of your hunt. Take the float plane from Smithers to the hunt area approximately a 1 1/2 hour flight. Flight departs on the day of hunt commencement.

Float plane charter cost is $1200 roundtrip + 5 % tax. License cost is $180 and moose tag $290.

Option #2: Instead of taking the float plane into the remote camp, hunt an area that can reached via truck and atv’s. A lot of glassing and not as much walking as the remote camp hunt. Base camp is a wall tent camp.
