About Skeena Mountain Outfitters

We operate two adjoining guiding concessions in northwestern B.C. that together encompass over 2,300 square miles of some of BC’s most spectacular wilderness. The territory extends from the western slopes of B.C.’s Coastal Range mountains eastward nearly 65 miles to farmlands and lakes and rivers of the Skeena watershed. The vastness of the territory and the wildlife that call it home provide a range of adventures for our guests. We are able to tailor hunts to their specific abilities and dreams. From dramatic wilderness lakes accessed only by float-plane, to vehicle-accessible base camps, outlying satellite cabins and boat-accessible spike camps, we offer ample opportunities for all abilities and budgets.

We are continually working to improve every aspect of your experience with us. We have substantially modernized our main lodge while maintaining its rustic charm. Cabins have been updated and new camps added at strategic locations. Spike camps are built on elevated wood platforms, which add comfort, convenience and keep clothes and gear dry. New equipment has been added which provides a better experience in the field, from transporting guests, to recovering game. A new secure cold room has been added to cool down game meat, which is especially helpful during warm days of early fall. New routes are developed in summer months into areas scouted in advance for game that are otherwise difficult to access. New tree stands and ground blinds add to our existing network.

Comfortable camps are located throughout the area, strategically located to hunt surrounding areas. These camps consist of lodges, cabins, or wood-floored wall tents, and all are heated by wood burning stoves. Each offers a warm and comfortable place to eat and sleep after a day of hunting. The main lodge, accessible by vehicle, offers many of the comforts of home, with electricity, running water, hot showers, unlimited Wi-Fi, landline phone, full kitchen, sleeping rooms, wood stove heat, and convenient access to local shops in town. The lodge acts as a gathering point for guides and guests before and after a day’s hunt. It is where stories of prior hunts are retold and the next day’s hunt is planned.

Fly-in hunts are based from a main camp accessed by float plane. This camp is equally comfortable and offers an unparalleled wilderness experience for smaller parties. Located on the shore of a remote lake, this camp can be used to access nearby hunting trails or to drift in a small boat along the shore, or use the vantage of a well-situated tree stand. Guests can stay in the historic main cabin or opt for a nearby cabin. Between their hunts guests often lend a hand to keep the wood stove burning and helping with other camp chores. While enjoying meals at the dining table guests can keep an eye on the lake for moose and other game. Another of our camps accessed only by float plane is located within a British Columbia Protected Area, and has been designated a Provincial Park. The excitement of flying into a glacier-fed lake to a cabin surrounded by towering glacier-covered peaks is unsurpassed. Hunt in solitude by boat on the 3-mile long lakes the cabin is situated between. Other well-established and comfortable cabins, heated by wood stoves, are strategically located in remote parts of the territory to maximize your hunting opportunities Spike Camps using wood platforms for wall tents, with wood stoves in each tent, are also used when needed, offering us flexibility to move in search of your game and cover as much area as possible.

Hearty and nourishing meals are an important part of your hunting experience with us. We take pride in our delicious home-cooked meals. Breakfast often starts with bacon, sausage, eggs, hash browns, melons or berries, freshly baked cinnamon rolls or muffins, coffee and juice. If planning to be out all day your lunch is packed and ready to go when you are.

“Some of the best food I’ve ever had in a hunting camp.” Ernie S., May 2023.

Dinner is chef’s choice and guests enjoy guessing amongst themselves and their guides while out hunting what may be featured on the dinner table that evening. Appetizers often await the hunters return at the end of the day, followed by dinner accompanied by salads, homemade bread, fresh vegetables, fruits, and of course enticing desserts.
