Our Specialty


Moose hunts are conducted during the prime rut times, from mid-September to the end of October, when the animals are responding to calling. This helps ensure the success of the hunter. 

Color Phase


With the healthy high-density population of black bears, you can expect to see bears ranging in size anywhere from 5 to 7 1/2 feet with some of the bears weighing in at 500 lbs.

With Hounds


The terrain in the Batnuni Lake area is well-suited for cougar. Cougars rely on stealth and their ability to avoid detection while stalking prey. The natural cover provided throughout the area is perfect.

What to Expect on Your Hunt

Our combination hunts are arranged on an individual basis, thus assuring you a more personal and satisfying experience for your hunt. We have had successful hunters of all ages, demographics and various hunting skill levels.

Our hunt starts from the moment we pick you up in Prince George, BC where we will greet you and bring you back when your hunting excursion is complete. However, if you should decide to drive, we will give you directions to your camp’s front step and then guide you from there. We supply everything upon your arrival at the camp; however we do not provide beer, wine, liquor or personal amenities.

In order not to waste valuable hunting time, hunting licenses and tags are billed and purchased prior to your arrival. We will provide you with the forms and instructions for obtaining your Firearms Permit and Access to bring your rifles into Canada. This is a requirement by law, yet the process is simple and straightforward. Allow yourself approximately 30 days for the process to complete, otherwise plan on spending at least one hour at the airport immigration office completing the forms.

All “fees” are required to be paid in full prior to embarking on your hunt from here.
