On arrival at the city Campbell River on Vancouver Island you will spend the night in a hotel. On day 2 the hunters will be met by the outfitter and transferred to the hunting district, some hours drive away to the north west.
The hunting camp is in a very remote location, so don’t expect that your mobile phone, wifi etc. will function here. The camp consists of timber cabins, in which you will find bedrooms, a kitchen, heating, beds, a bathroom and toilets. No bed linen is provided for visiting hunters, so you will need to bring along a sleeping bag from home. The guide and camp personnel prepare all meals, breakfast and dinner are eaten in camp, while on some days you will bring a packed lunch with you when hunting to help save time if you are far from camp during the day.
After your bear has been shot, you guide will help with skinning and the preparation of the pelt, which are then sent on to a taxidermist. The taxidermist can prepare your bear trophy, but if you prefer you can send the bear back to your local taxidermist at home. Diana works together with a very skilled taxidermist here, who we can certainly recommend. Your bear trophy will be a reminder of your hunt that will last a lifetime.
During your week hunting, don’t expect to be spending any time in bars, shops or restaurants close to the hunting district. This you can do after your hunt, either in Campbell River, or if you spend an extra day or two inVancouver before your flight home.
