Gearing Up for Moose and Caribou Hunts in British Columbia

Sep 11, 2019 | Uncategorized

The prime season for Kawdy’s world class caribou and moose hunts has arrived. The weather might be turning cold, but the rut is on and we’ll take that trade any day.  

If you’re preparirng for a hunt next year or sometime in the near future, get ready for the experience of a lifetime. The moose and caribou hunts are highlights of our season. Running around some of the most wild and remote mountains on earth while chasing moose and caribou is an experience you will never forget.

Get Dialed In

The months and weeks leading into a big hunt are filled with anticipation. A consistent routine is the best bet to ensure you are physically ready and walking into the woods with confidence in your abilities and equipment. In the final time period, don’t ramp up too hard. Stay on a normalized conditioning routine to maintain without risking injury before the hunt.

Train with your hunting gear and amp up the time spent shooting with your rifle. Hit the range a few times each week. Shooting is critical leading into the hunt and makes the difference between a big bull down and one running in the wrong direction.

The week before leaving, make out a full gear list and lay everything out. Do full inventory and make sure everything is accounted for and packed. Double and triple check before hitting the road or airport.

The Biggest Canadian Moose

Hunters travel here to the headwaters of the Yukon river drainage, to chase the biggest Canadian Moose. Our moose share more genetics with the Alaska-Yukon variety, but our location just south of the B.C./Yukon border classifies them as Canadian moose. Moose in the 50-65-inch range with great height and width are harvested each year. Our camps are perfectly situated with access to incredible wilderness country that hosts strong populations of big bulls.

We utilize boats and horses to maximize our range while accessing difficult country. Both forms of travel open opportunities to difficult country that is simply not accessible on foot.

Caribou Hunt Highlights

The mountain caribou range overlaps with moose habitat. This creates an ideal opportunity for a multiple species combo hunt. Boone and Crockett trophy potential is realistic for both species.

The mountain caribou are non-migratory, simply moving upslope and downslope with the change of seasons. This allows us to hunt them with a reasonable level of predictability. Our caribou hunts are done on horseback, and we primarily hunt high plateaus where spot and stalk opportunities are prevalent.

Big white maned bulls with sweeping antlers are common. This, in combination with a big bull moose is something incredibly special.
