Non-Resident Hunting Fees

I checked out the 2005-2006 Hunting &Trapping Regulations Synopsis for BC You'll need a bit more then $50 to go hunting here in BC. As a non-resident of BC and non-resident of canada you'll have to go on a hunt with a registered guide. If you have a immediate relative here (father, brother, wife, mother etc) you can have them get a Permit to accompany. They have to of had a hunters licence and species licence ( for the species of animal you plan to hunt) for about 3-5 years before they apply for a permit to accompany.

Here are some fees you'll have to pay :
1) Non-Resident to hunt all big game (hunting licence) $180.00
2) Non-Resident Species Licence Fee for Elk $250.00 Deer $125.00
3) Guide fee's $ Sky's the limit. ..It all depends where you want to go here and how long, what you want the guide to do, traveling expenses, trophy fee's etc. I'd make a wild guess on a 4 day hunt of $2500??? (this is just a wild guess)

Hope the info helps.

Prices

I guess it's not bad pricing for a non-resident. But if you want to hunt Grizzly, check out the non-resident species licence...$1030.00 compared to a resident fee of $80.00.

not sure...

The licence fees are accurate (right out of our reg book). As for the outfitter fee, i made a good guess. To get an accurate bottom line, you'ld have to talk with a guide. I believe there is a list of guides that the province maintains due to guides having to be registered.

British columbia is a huge province and we do have different geographical areas..Mountains, plains, swamps, rolling hills etc. We even have rain forests! We also have a wide variety of species to hunt. Ducks to grizzly and i believe 3 of the four sheep required for a grand slam. They are all native here. If anyone is serious about hunting up here i would recommend a few camping trips to "scout out" prospective hunting areas. Some regions are better then others for certain species. Then when you think you have an area you can source out a guide.

A bit of research and you can have an excellent and memorable hunt well worth the money. Also BC is a cool place to go camping that's fun in it's self!.
