Hunting with GGO:

While we specialize in custom hunts for BIG Canadian Moose, we have something for everyone: rugged mountain horseback hunts, remote backpack hunts for monster moose (you’ve got to be crazy), and simple, comfortable fly-in cabin based lake hunts for those who don’t like horses and/or are interested in a less physical hunt.  So, it’s time to take dad or grandpa, or maybe your 14 year old nephew – on a world class hunt.

All of our hunts can be customized to meet your personal objectives and the demands of your schedule and budget.

Stone Sheep:

We have a very limited number of Stone Sheep Tags.  We have exceptionally good genetics in our area.  All Stone Sheep hunts are guided by the Outfitter.  Please call for details.

Spring Bear: (May 15th to June 15th)

We offer a fabulous Spot and Stalk package for bow hunters.  Stay in a comfortable lodge and hunt off of the Alaska Highway by truck or quad.  The Liard Hot Springs provide a unique twist on this hunt – there is no better place to relax after a day of hunting.

We also provide mountain hunts by horseback.  Glass the south slopes of the mountains where the bear are out on the first green shoots.  What makes this hunt so interesting is the other wildlife you will also see.

Traditional ‘mixed bag’ Horseback Hunts:   (August 14th to Sept 15th)

Hunting by horseback under warm summer sky’s riding through knee deep grass in high mountain basins.  Spike out with a pack string or return to a comfortable cabin at the end of the days hunting.  Our clients like this hunt - because it’s fun: nice weather, beautiful country, and long forgiving days.

Late Season Horseback Hunts   (Sept 15th to Oct 15th)

Mountain horseback hunts: the frost is on the ground and the moose and caribou are in rut.  We hunt from cabins and spike camps through the snow covered mountain basins.  This is our most popular hunt; the game is moving, and with horses can you can cover some country.  These hunts book up early – call now for a 2016 hunt.

Lake or River Boat Moose Hunts (Sept 15th to Oct 15th)

These are hunts that anyone can enjoy.  Practice your calling and check the shore for tracks in the warm afternoon sun (or snow).  If you want a ‘relaxing’ hunt, you can take an afternoon nap in the tent or cabin – or, you can walk the moose trails around back eddy’s and swamps looking for fresh rut pits and trees that have been ripped up by a Big Bull Moose.   You may also have a shot at a wolf or black bear – and if you’re interested in fishing…
