Several in Northern BC and Yukon-- i am somewhat familiar with-- drove with one of top guides in BC from Liard River to FT nelson a few years ago-- i always wanted to do one but $$ made it a no go-I lived in Ak and subbed dall's for them. PM or email me if interested.
well i booked a stone hunt with simpson stone outfitters. I am going next august. I can't afford this hunt, but i won some money at a trade show. And i figured easy come, easy go. My winnings cover the hunt, so i figured why not.
You chose a great outfitter. I did a goat hunt in 2004 with Simpson Stone Sheep. Frank is a Great outfitter.
Along with the in-laws, we all tagged out in 5 days (Goats, Grizz and Stone Sheep). We were very happy, but be prepared for bad weather. After our first 5 days, we were clouded & soaked in for the remaining 10 days, shutting down any chance at moose.
PS. Don't just work the legs, put in some time on the saddle or at least an uncomfortable bike seat before you go!
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
