With Bugle Basin, British Columbia Hunting Outfitters you can choose from twelve (12) different Big Game species (Elk, Bighorn Sheep, Mountain Goat, Shiras Moose, Mule Deer, White Tail Deer, Black Bear, Grizzly Bear, Cougar, Bobcat, Lynx and Wolf) for the perfect hunt experience.
Elk Hunting (includes Mule Deer):
The Kootenay Region has the highest population of Elk in British Columbia. We are only allowed to harvest Bull Elk that have a minimum of six (6) points or better on one side. Bulls range from 270 to 350. Hunting the rut is one of the most exhilarating experiences. The sound of bugling bulls keeps you coming back for more.
Bighorn Sheep Hunting, full curl rams (includes Mule Deer):
Hunt the Rams early in the scenic high alpine basins or late in the snows on winter range. This hunt will challenge even the most dedicated hunter, physically and mentally. Rams must be full curl and range from 160 to 180 class. These Rams live in some of the toughest country in the Rockies, which makes any Ram taken a "True Trophy".
Mountain Goat Hunting (includes mule deer):
This territory has some excellent Mountain Goat terrain. Many Mountain Goats can be glassed right from the main camp porch. "Mature Billies" are selectively harvested and can range from 9" to 101/2". We have a limited number of tags available with having a 100% success rate, so book early.
Moose Hunting (includes Mule Deer):
These giant animals are managed very carefully in the Kootenay Region, as such only a limited number of tags are offered. You have your choice of hunting September with archery or late October with a rifle. Our Moose range anywhere from 40" to 55".
Mule & White Tail Deer Hunting:
Bachelor groups of Mule deer bucks are usually hunted early season in high alpine basins. We are only allowed to harvest Bucks with a minimum of 4 points on one side. These magnificent bucks can be hunted primarily or combined with other species.
Cougar, Bobcat & Lynx Hunts Hunting:
These elusive cats are hunted November through January depending on snow pack levels. A fresh track and a good bunch of hounds is how we hunt these big predators. Only mature "toms" are harvested.
Black Bear & Grizzly Bear Hunting:
Grizzlies are hunted only in the spring around mid May. "Spot & Stalk" methods used for both Grizzly Bears and Black Bears. Interior mountain Grizzly Bears and Black Bears are well known for their color variations. We have a healthy population of both bears, but a limited number of tags for Grizzlies.
Wolf Hunting (available with all hunts):
Wolf can be added to any of our hunts through the purchasing a wolf tag. Despite their extremely shy nature there is a fair chance you’ll see a wolf, hear them howl or come across fresh signs during your hunt.
