These are backpack hunts so you need to be in the best shape of your life to fully enjoy your experience.
Hunts are one-on-one fully guided with registered guides and each hunter will be paired with their own guide for the entire hunt (unless requested otherwise). All of the guides are experienced, knowledgeable, and highly trained.
At base camp they have a large Weatherport tent for the cook shack and 10×10 Bomb shelter tents that sleep two people. When sheep hunting, you stay in small 1-3 men pup tents. When moose hunting, you stay in Bomb shelters, wall tents, a cabin, or Arctic Oven, depending on the location.
This varies from client to client, but if you come in shape and can shoot well, we will have a great chance at filling your tag. Usually it is 75-95% depending on the species.
