In South Nahanni we are in the unique position to fly our clients not only with the usual bush planes, but also with our own helicopters, either a Bell 206 Jet Ranger or a Bell Longranger L1, which are stationed in base camp throughout the entire hunting season.
The helicopter allows for a new dimension in game management as it enables us to concentrate on mature game. We have the freedom to pick our hunting locations carefully, and therefore don’t have to return to easily accessible populations. Instead, we leave recently hunted areas to themselves for at least one year so that our game populations – each band of rams, moose habitat or herd of caribou – have time to renew themselves. This ensures you, the hunter, excellent trophy choices, and us, the outfitters and guides, of providing honest trophy hunts in untouched wilderness forever – conservation close at heart.
You still think we could easily overhunt our area? Try it. We don’t take more hunters than before, when access was first on horseback and later with bush planes only.
