Description:

This territory is not easily accessed and for that reason has very limited local hunting. The territory is in a fairly dry country, an extension of the southern Chilcotin region. This outfitter has been very successful over the past 30+ years. It is the oldest Hunt Territory in BC – established in 1870 - and is only now being offered on the market.

Game is stable with high success and highly valued animals. Species cross section within the territory is excellent with the opportunity in all 3 distinct hunting seasons to take trophy game.

Area Data:

5000 sq km located in the South Chilcotin Mountains.

The region has a mild four-season climate nestled on the lee side of the Coast Range Mountains in the Chilcotin Mountain Ranges. These are unique glaciated mountains rising to 9,500' elevation and averaging 7,500'. These are hospitable mountains, with easy access. Tree line is approximately 6,500'.

The region has access by 2 main highways – Whistler and Vancouver to the south, and Lillooet leading to the interior of British Columbia. Access by road is 3 hours from Whistler, and 5 ½ hours from Vancouver. It is 1 hour by plane from Vancouver International Airport, and a ½ hour from Whistler by helicopter or plane.
