Hunting Methods

 

Hunting methods are flexible – Archery, Cross bow, Muzzleloader and Rifle are all possible to harvest your game with D.R. Outfitting.

special

Bow Hunting

 

All bow hunters are welcome as they represent a large percentage of our visitors. If bow hunting, bring at least 12 arrows with sturdy broad heads. I have had many hunters protest that they don't need 12 arrows. You don't if you are just hunting elk. However, many hunters want to go after other game once they arrive and find they used most of their arrows on elk. An archery range is also available.

 

Black Powder

 

We welcome the hunter using primitive methods. Most black powder guns will work well for nearly all of our animal hunts. 

 

Rifle Hunting

 

High powered rifle hunters are encouraged to bring either a .243, .270, .300, or 30-06 calibre rifle with shells. For larger animals

 

like elk and extremely tough animals like the wild boar, we recommend a .270 calibre rifle or larger.

 

We maintain a rifle range on site for sighting in and making any other necessary adjustments prior to your hunt.

 

Firearms

 

Canadian Customs - All firearms brought into Canada will be inspected. From a practical standpoint, this simply means somebody in the Canadian Customs area of the airport will open your gun case and physically look at your gun to ensure it is not loaded.

 

This is not a problem so long as you do not have a handgun of any type (strictly prohibited in Canada) or a fully-auto long gun (also prohibited). You must declare any firearms you are bringing in.

 

Canadian Customs officers will record the serial numbers on your guns when you enter Canada.

 

There also will be a $25 (Canadian) fee required to buy a "Firearms Declaration ", basically a temporary license or permit to take your gun in and out of Canada.

⇅ Taxidermy

Taxidermy

 

In most cases hunters take their antlers and cape home with themselves as extra baggage. Or Leave it for our local taxidermist to prepare. Included in your hunt package we will: skin, cape and freeze the hide, clean and package your antlers for transport.

 

Taxidermy work is not included but we can recommend a local taxidermist for you. Coolers or crates and shipping costs are not included.

⇅ Our Guides

Our Guides

 

Our Staff will become your friends as they strive to give you excellent service both in the field and back at Camp. Your Guide will work diligently during your hunt to help you secure many opportunities for quality animals; whether it is the Trophy of a Lifetime or meat to put in your freezer.

Guides will take you out with quads or by foot to your hunting area. Hunts are done from spacious raised box blinds or spot and stalk. For safety reasons a guide must be with you at all times for spot and stalk hunting.

 

The terrain is mixed forest and flat to rolling hills, which make it very easily walked and quad accessible. Most shots are taken within 100 yards. There is sometimes the opportunity for longer shots in some of our open fields. Our guides are all local individuals with experience hunting on this type of terrain and land. You can also bring along a hunting partner or Non-hunter to either video record or take pictures of your successful hunt. Also, if you have any special needs, we can accommodate you in the field.

If there is an issue that concerns you with regard to guides or services, please bring it to my attention immediately - while I still have an opportunity to correct it. We always do our utmost to be fair and reasonable with our clients.

 

Tips and Gratuities

 

A lot of our clients ask about tips. If you feel our staff has been pleasant, courteous and made a consistent effort, by all means, reward them for their efforts

⇅ What to Bring

What You Can and Cannot Bring Into Canada

 

Most things you bring with you will be considered "personal baggage" by Canadian Customs officers.

 

These items include reasonable quantities of food, fishing tackle, cars, boats and motors, fuel, sports equipment, TV sets, musical instruments, computers and cameras.

 

And of course, you already know there are going to be some exceptions! The most important exception to the rule is a firearm.

 

Firearms

 

Canadian Customs - All firearms brought into Canada will be inspected. From a practical standpoint, this simply means somebody in the Canadian Customs area of the airport will open your gun case and physically look at your gun to ensure it is not loaded.

Medical Insurance

 

Take current proof of your medical insurance with you. Prior to your departure for Canada, call your insurance carrier and make certain your coverage is good while traveling and visiting in Canada

 

Other Items

 

Prescription drugs normally present no problem going through Canadian Customs. Clearly identify each drug and carry it in its original packaging with a label that specifies both what the drug is and that it is being used under the prescription of a doctor.

 

If the drug could cause question, it's a good idea to take your doctor's phone number with you just in case. Diabetics bringing syringes with them should also carry evidence of their need.

⇅ Meat Processing

Meat Processing

 

In most cases hunters take their meat as extra baggage in coolers.

 

Included with your hunt is the removal of the animal from the field, gutting, skinning, quartering and refrigeration of the meat until your departure.

Meat processing is not included but we can recommend a local meat processor who for a nominal additional charge can process your meat.

This service includes:

 

  • De-boning of all meat
  • Slicing of steaks, chops, and roasts
  • Individual wrapping and freezing for transport
  • Preparation for transport (not including cooler or dry ice costs)

 

If you are not interested in taking the meat, we can donate it to a local charity in your name for possible tax write-offs (check with your personal tax accountant to see if you qualify.)
