following is information detailing the services we offer.
All guided hunts divide into two parts:
What is expected of the outfitter:
- The client will
be placed with a properly licensed guide capable of conducting
a guided hunt in an area capable of producing the desired
- Proper equipment
will be supplied as per the hunt requirements and conditions
of the Hunter Service Contract.
- Our base hunting
camps have good equipment consisting of cabins or log based
tent frames with kitchen tent, client tents, bunks with
foam mattresses, rigging tarps, good horses and equipment.
Spike tents and equipment are the finest.
- With the trend
for requests to take several animals in a shorter hunt,
such as a ten day hunt, in all honesty it is only fair
to advise you that time usually allows for only two trophies
to be taken.
- We or a representative
of our outfit will meet you upon arrival at your entry
point in Whitehorse, Yukon or Atlin, British Columbia.
You will be transferred from that point to a chartered
airline in Atlin, who will fly you to one of our camps.
- Upon your arrival
your gun will be checked for shipping damage and sighted
in if necessary. We then fit you to a saddle of your own
and rig your gun scabbard and saddle bags.
(2) What is expected of the client:
- The client is
expected to have on his arrival all necessary validated
licenses and tags covering his hunt as well as remit the
full balance due in cash, travelers' checks or cashier
draft in U.S. funds. The hunt will not commence unless
these two basic details are completed. It has been our
policy in recent years to assist you in getting licenses
on your behalf. We simply calculate the sum total of the
licenses you require and contact you in May of the year
you are to come, requesting those funds. Prior to your
hunt we will purchase them for you, having them ready for
- The responsibility
rests entirely on the client to inform us in advance of
any physical impairment to himself. There is no sense in
your investing money in a trophy hunt, expecting to participate
with a professional guide, when you are not in top physical
condition for your age and the type of hunt you have booked.
- Sheep and Goat
hunts could involve a large degree of walking and some
serious backpacking to obtain good trophy rams and billies.
- Clients must
be in excellent physical condition, able to walk, climb
and carry a 25lb. backpack in rugged country. They also
must be mentally prepared to suffer the hardships of being
wet, cold and at times uncomfortable (as in many hunts
but expected in Goat hunts).
- Harvested meat:
All meat is required by law to be flown out. This would
be at the client's expense, unless arrangements have been
made prior to your hunt. This amount is payable at the
conclusion of the hunt. Our local butcher can process meat
to be taken home at an additional cost to the client.
- Listen to
your guide. You are paying good money for his or
her services. Why not rely on their judgment and let
them run the hunt. They know how to be successful. Don't
try to second-guess them on estimating distances. It
takes years to accurately judge distance in open terrain.
- Don't expect
total perfection. Your outfitter and guide are human. If
a problem arises, make the best of it and go on with the
hunt. Then, if necessary, take it up with the outfitter
- away from the other hunters and guides.
- We have but
one purpose and that is to make your hunt enjoyable and
fruitful. We do everything we can, within the law and rules
of fair chase, to see that you get your game. We can't
be successful if the hunter doesn't hold up his end. By
following these guidelines you can make this one of your
most enjoyable hunts.
- So there will
be no misunderstanding, we wish to point out that we offer
the service to obtain game. We do not offer animals for
dollars spent, only the opportunity to hunt them. We will
use our knowledge of our area and game habits to see that
you are as successful as can be. We will work diligently
for your game, but we cannot guarantee you a trophy. You
will be on a fair chase hunt and the final responsibility
will be up to you.
