August – October
Stone’s sheep are considered the most coveted of the four North American wild sheep and this 5,000 square mile guide-exclusive area in north-central British Columbia is in the heart of some of the finest sheep hunting in the province. The area is known for its dark bodied rams (true stone’s) with heavy bases. Your jumping off point for this 14 day horseback adventure will be a beautiful custom 8,500 square foot cedar lodge that is truly a one of a kind. The lodge itself is located on 500 acres, set in the scenic Toad River valley surrounded by mountain views and wildlife.This is one of the most scenic areas in all of British Columbia.
Hunting camps are accessed by horseback or bush plane and consist of remote backcountry cabins and wall tents. Many of the camps have propane heated showers and all cabins and wall tents are heated with wood burning stoves. Beds consist of handmade log beds and cots or bunks. Meals are wholesome and prepared by your guide or cook depending on the staffing in that particular camp. However, most sheep hunts are from “spike camps” (small dome tents) located in the heart of sheep country. You will be sleeping on the floor of the tents on a foam and air mattress bedroll. Meals will be similar to the primary back country camps with a bit of freeze dried food added to help the horses out and to be as efficient as possible. Most hunters truly enjoy spiking out as it can really add to the overall success and enjoyment of the trip!
Sheep-only hunts start August 1st and by August 15th, you may add caribou, moose, or elk on a trophy fee basis. September offers you the Serengeti hunt of North America, where in all species are available on a trophy fee basis. Trophy fees on black bear and wolf are included in the cost of a sheep hunt!
