Hunt southeastern BC in the heart of the Rockies. Hunting is by horseback and on foot.

Mule deer must have at least 4 points on one side. Average score is right around 160 B&C with some better. An added bonus is that a whitetail buck may also be harvested for no additional fee, other than the license cost. Whitetails normally run in the 120-130 B&C range with 150 being the top end.

With such a long season, hunters can choose to hunt bachelor groups of bucks in September or wait until the November rut. Trophy bucks have been taken throughout the season. If taking a whitetail is also a priority, the later season hunts offer a much chance of scoring on a decent buck.

This is a hunt where a client’s physical condition has a great bearing on his success. The terrain is steep and elevation is 6000′ - 9000′ . Elderly hunters and hunters not in “mountain shape” can be accommodated and will hunt primarily out of stands overlooking meadows.

The main camp can be reached by truck and has multiple cabins, shower house and even a cabin for a couple. Other cabins are reached by horse and are used as needed.

Hunters can fly into Cranbrook, B.C. and be met at the airport or fly into Kalispel, MT., rent a vehicle and drive 2 ½ hours to meet the outfitter. Another option is to fly into Spokane, WA and drive to meet the outfitter. Airfare at Spokane is usually more affordable.

Included: meals, lodging, guiding, game retrieval and care of game.
