Outfitting to all of us is a way of life, one that we cherish because we love to hunt, love the wilderness, the game and flying bush planes/helicopters. We enjoy the challenges of being independent. We hope to continue this way of life for a long time to come and we hope to be able to share some of it with you, not only leading you to great trophies but also to an exceptional wilderness hunting experience in an area and in a business that means everything to us.

We strive to have only happy hunters; hunters that enjoy calling us friends long after their hunt has taken place. It will be a pleasure to meet you and to hunt with you.

Tremendous trophy choices. Superb hunting experiences. Untouched wilderness. A long line of very happy hunters, record book trophies and opportunity rates of 100% are the results. Join us for a top quality hunt. Experience the ultimate in customer service and organization. Meet the excellence of professional, northern guides. Go and get your big white ram!
