Hunt Information

Species Available 



 Gundahoo River Outfitters since starting its operation in 1987 has been one of the most successful areas for trophy hunting. The Stone’s sheep that inhabit ou r area are the true Stone’s, coloration can vary from salt & pepper an d chocolate bodies to almost black. For this reason, the Stone Sheep blend into their landscape, making them almost impossible to see but to the trained eye. We only offer 14 day hunts for sheep, as this is a mountain hunt and weather is the determining factor in how many hunting days you may have. We start hunting Sheep Aug 1st (opening season for sheep) during this hunt, hunters who want to only focus on sheep book this time frame, or we recommend this time frame for Archery Hunters as well. This first hunt includes three days of pre-scouting with guide. The second hunt which starts August 13th can also include other species once your primary tag, Stone Sheep has been harvested. Ani mals that can also be hunted include Canadian Moose (opens Aug 15th) Mt Caribou (Aug 15th) Mt Goat (Aug 25th) Grizzly (Aug 15th) Wolf can be hunted any time and with your complimentary tag that GRO provides, it is a wonderful opportunistic trophy! All additional animals harvested are on a harvest fee.

Our Sheep hunts consist of one guide and one hunter and sometimes a wrangler. They are tent camps with the ability to spike camp if necessary. All of our hunts are horseback, we use sturdy mountain horses th at have been ranch raised and trained. Meals will be a combination of Mountain House (dried food) and fresh food. Any special diets will be accommodated to the best of our ability. Our Sheep are spread throughout our entire guide area. Our sheep guides a re our true and tested guides, and understand the investment you have in your hunt! They are professional working guides and prepare to be the best they can for your hunt, we request that you come prepared both mentally and physically to make your hunt th e best it can be! As with any mountain hunt, climbing should be anticipated, the highest mountains are 7500’ with our valleys around 4500’. You can expect to hike vertically approximately 2 – 3 hrs. Always communicate with your guide when you need a brea k, they are used to this type of work, and so look to you for what your needs are! This isn’t a race, we are here to make you successful. Weather can interrupt hunting and when it does, take advantage of the down time to rest up and relax. Mountain weath er moves quickly thru areas and it changes constantly.



 With our northern border approximately 100 air miles from the Yukon border, we have some of the largest Canadian Moose within our concession. We consistently take B& C quality trophies and with Moose gaining popularity with Archery hunters we are taking top P & Y trophies too. We typically average 55” for our Moose. We start hunting Moose August 15th, as an additional animal with our sheep hunts. August 28th we start full combination hunts, Moose are in velvet but hard horned, they make an attractive mount, or they can be stripped and your taxidermist will color them to that natural willow burned color. Accommodations are tent or cabin camps. With 14 or 10 day hunts an option, you will have opportunity to harvest your trophy of a lifetime. No more than 2 hunters are in a hunting camp at one time. All of our hunts are horseback, we use sturdy mountain horses that have been ranch raised and trained. Meals will be a combination of Mountain House (dried food) and fresh food. Any special diets will be accommodated to the best of our ability. During the rut hunts the last two hunts of September, the weather is cooler and this is an exciting time to hunt Moose by calling. This time frame is the best for archery hunters and we have been very successful. Once your trophy is down, the work begins, to carefully cape out and get your trophy field dressed takes time, so expect to spend a day or two doing this.


 Mountain Caribou are found in the high mountain basins in areas where Sheep and MT Goat live. It is a hunt very similar to Elk hunting but without the rut. The lone Bulls with their shaggy white manes are an impressive trophy. All of our hunts are horseback, we use sturdy mountain horses that have been ranch raised and trained. Meals will be a combination of Mountain House (dried food) and fresh food. Any special diets will be accommodated to the best of our ability. This hunt can be a single hunt species or hunted in combination with other species. We start hunting MT Caribou August 15th during this time it is usually as an additional animal with Sheep. Aug 28th is the start of our full combination hunts.


 Mountain Goats, these white majestic mountain monarchs make an awesome trophy. Gundahoo River Outfitters is home to large populations of Mountain Goats. Even though it is legal to harvest a nanny, we endeavour to only harvest the Billies. Mt Goats are extremely sensitive to harvest and therefore we are careful to only harvest a few from each area in our concession, this ensures excellent populations for future years. This hunt is offered as an additional trophy starting August 25th, then as a full combination August 28th, to our 10 day hunts starting Sept ember 12 and September 23. Our September weather is colder just because of where we are located, allowing our Goats to have their thicker longer hair sooner than coastal Goats. This is also a horseback, spot and stalk hunt, taking place in either a tent or cabin camp. Again the more physically prepared you are the better you will enjoy your hunt. This animal is best as a life size trophy, to display the beautiful coat of the Mountain Goat...therefore once it is down, usually allow a day for the field dre ssing and hide care. All of our hunts are horseback, we use sturdy mountain horses that have been ranch raised and trained. Meals will be a combination of Mountain House (dried food) and fresh food. Any special diets will be accommodated to the best of our ability.

 Grizzly and Black Bear hunts are hunted from August 15th thru to the end of our hunt dates. We have bigger populations of Grizzly and therefore our Black Bear population is small and elusive. Because Grizzly Bears are on a small quota, hunting is opportunistic and therefore it will be hunted on a harvest fee basis. Average size for our Mountain Grizzly is in the 7ft average size. There is a lot of work once a bear is harvested and your guide will make sure it is looked after in a professional manner.

Any special diets will be accommodated to the best of our abi lity.


 Wolf hunts are not offered as a single species hunt, Gundahoo provides each one of its hunters a complimentary tag. This is our way of predator control and ensuring our ungulates get the best chance they can to survive. Each year our calf crop proves this is working.

Meat Processing 

As always, the meat is a big part of your hunting expedition. We are aware that traveling great distances does not always allow you the privilege of taking the meat home with you. For those of you that want to take their meat home, we suggest driving to our main camp. At our base camp we have meat processing facilities, a large walk-in cooler to hang your meat and cutting and wrapping area. Bringing a freezer with you allows you to keep your meat in the best possible condition for the trip home. Remember that any meat not taken home is used in camp, given to local families and guides or gratefully donated to the Food Bank of British Columbia.

Hide & Horn Care 

Once your animal is down and your guide has provided the basics to the field care of your trophy, it will be brought to the base camp. Here we will ensure that it is properly cared for salted, dried and ready for shipping. Brian Kadrmas of Full Curl Expe ditors presently provides this service for our clients. He arrives at the end of our hunting season, approximately the middle of October and picks up all the trophies. He looks after the permits necessary to transport them to his facility in North Dakota, from where they are crated and shipped. His contact information is below.
