Hunting

Hunting with GGO (Formerly Coal River Outfitters)

Our area has long been known for producing BIG Canadian Moose.  And we have a moose hunt 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 or are interested in a less physical hunt.

We also have fabulous spring bear hunts – some of which are pretty unique.  And, in addition to Moose and Black Bear, we hunt Caribou, Goat, Stone Sheep, Elk, and Grizzly.  Most hunters all get a wolf tag.

If you’re interested in a quality hunt with a small, family run operation, give us a call 250-500-2717, or drop us an email: info@ggoutfitting.com.  Hunt dates and descriptions are provided below.   We look forward to hunting with you.

Stone Sheep: (August 1st to October 12th)

We have very good sheep.  All Stone Sheep hunts are guided by the Outfitter.  Ask around – you won’t get that guarantee very often.  Very few tags available, but please call for details.

Spring Bear: (May15th 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.

Early  Season Mountain Horseback Hunts: (August 24 to Sept. 15)

This is a Moose/Grizzly combination hunt, with an option for caribou, black bear or goat.   Fly into a remote mountain lake where your horses and guide will be waiting.  Hunt from a cabin or the lake, or spike out into the mountains.  This is a fun hunt: nice weather, beautiful country, long forgiving days.  But you need to be in good shape – lots of riding, lots of hiking/climbing.

Late Season Horseback Hunts:   (September 15th to October 12th)    - now booked into 2016 -

Mountain horseback hunts: the frost is on the ground and the moose and caribou are in rut.  We hunt snow covered mountain basins from cabins or spike camps.  This is our most popular hunt: the game is moving, and with horses can you can cover some country.  But you’ve got to be prepared to ride.  This is rough country, and it’s not easy to get around - and that’s why the game is there.

  • Sept 15th to Sept 24th                    moose, caribou, goat, grizzly
  • Sept 24th to Oct 3rd                       moose, caribou, goat, grizzly (caribou close on Oct 1st)
  • Oct 3rd to Oct 12th                         moose, goat

Lake Hunts for Moose:  (September 15th to October 03rd)

These are typically our least ‘physical’ hunts.  You will hunt along / near the lake, doing as much (or as little) hiking as you want.  The idea is to call the big bulls to you.    Be prepared for a shot at a wolf or black bear.  Grizzly tags may also be available.  And if you’re interested in fishing…  Some of our lakes have comfortable cabins - others we run with tents.  But they are all small camps that are only accessible by float plane.  We bring in just one or two hunters per lake, per year.  With virtually no hunting pressure, and being so close to the Yukon border, these hunts often produce our biggest moose.  We only offer these hunts during the ‘prime rut’.

  • Sept 15th to Sept 24th                 moose, black bear, wolf, grizzly
  • Sept 24th to Oct 3rd                    moose, black bear, wolf, grizzly
