    • Depending on the species hunted & base camp location, you may hunt out of the base camp for your entire hunt, or spike out into the mountains.  
  • Day 10: Float plane to Muncho Lake, drop off in Fort Nelson.
  • The Hunt:  The days are long, the weather mild, it is a lot of fun to hunt in the mountains at this time of year.  This is primarily a ‘spot and stalk’ hunt: expect to spend some quality time with your binoculars, watching the wildlife and enjoying the mountains.  We will plan a hunt that provides the best opportunity to harvest your ‘primary’ species; however at many of our camps, we recommend that you bring a variety of tags – just in case.  

    • Extra days may be added to most hunts for $1000 per hunter/day.
    • Non-hunters welcome for $350 per person/day.
    • All hunts include pickup & drop off in Fort Nelson.
