Up to a year before the hunt everything apart from a 10% booking fee will be returned. Within a year of the hunt no reimbursement of funds, but you can send a replacement hunter. Travel insurance is a good thing!
Contact us, get an offer, decide, then you will receive a hunting contract locking in your price and date. A deposit of 25% of the hunt price and a corresponding receipt from us completes off the reservation/booking.
You will see respectable trophy animals at shooting distance. If everything goes wrong (wolves, weather, etc.) we will offer to extend your hunt. If you can’t walk or shoot there is nothing we can do. No refunds are given if you don’t get your ram or moose. This is a wilderness hunt, not a guarantee in a fenced area.
Yes, this is grizzly country. You cannot get a permit unless you are an NWT resident. We take bear defence measures. You cannot keep a bear shot in self defence. Our guides are well prepared to keep you safe.
You can take it into the States or across Canada, but not overseas. You do need an export permit, issued in Fort Simpson, east of camp. An extra flight will have to be made and paid to get to the officer there as we come in from Whitehorse, west of camp.
No. You will be spike camping while hunting as it is impractical and costly to fly everyone back to base camp every night. Flying distances from camp can be up to one hour one way. You will stay out hunting till you have your game.
Only if the time with your kid is more important than the hunt. There are no instant helicopter pickups for child care in base camp, while you keep hunting.
When should you bring your child then? When they are big and strong enough to scale the mountains and that depends on the individual.
You really need a 90 l (5600 cubic inch) backpack. It contains all your gear coming into the country, it serves as your daypack (the rest of your stuff stays in the tent), you will carry your sheep and gear back down the mountain with it. If you don’t bring one, we will give you one.
He knows how to guide in the north, read a map and a GPS and gets clear directions from the outfitter. We try to spread out hunting pressure so still sometimes hunt areas we have only been in from the air, not on foot. We go where the game is and the helicopter gets us there.
Variable. Be prepared with everything from t-shirt to woollies every day throughout the season. And the outfitter is letting you know that it is always huntable with a success rate of about 100% over the past 15 seasons.
