DB Outfitting Ltd: Trip Planner

Accommodation & Meals:

Accommodations consist of a mix between comfortable wall tents and cozy log cabins, both with wood stoves. All camps have generator electricity. To ensure good trophy quality of our animals, we rotate our camps every other year. All our winter hunts are done out of cozy wood heated cabins.

Good food plays an important role in having a quality hunting experience. All our meals are home cooked, very good and with lots of variety. Not to forget the taste of a fresh fire roasted tenderloin after a successful hunt. Please warn us in advance of any special dietary needs or allergies so that we can accommodate for you.

Before the Hunt

Extra Costs

Hunt prices do not include Tags, Licenses, Taxes, Royalties, Gratuities, extra hunting days (if available), non-hunting companion, meat processing.

Deposits/Payment

50% of the hunt price is required upon booking to hold your spot. 25% of the down payment is non-refundable. The remaining 25% are refundable if the hunt is cancelled at least 6 months prior to the starting date of the hunt. The remainder of all costs is due upon your arrival at camp.  Final payments must be in cash or certified cheque. The hunt will not start without receiving full payment. All funds are in US Dollars. 

Travel

The starting point for all hunts is Prince George. You will be picked up at a prearranged meeting spot the day before the hunt starts or at the airport. We advise you to arrive in Prince George a day before your pick up date to compensate for any unforeseeable travel complications or delays.  If you are driving yourself, we will provide you with detailed directions and will meet you in Fort St. James. Coming from abroad, you will need a valid Passport, valid drivers license and a Canadian Firearm Declaration Form.

Caliber

One of the first things after settling in at camp will be to check the accuracy of your rifle. For all hunts we recommend calibers of .270 Win or larger. Knowing your rifle and shot placement are key when it comes to big game hunting.

Tags & Licenses

All tags and licenses are guaranteed. After purchasing your hunt we will purchase your tags and licenses for you and have them ready for you in camp. Licenses and tags need to be with the hunter at all times during the hunt.

During the Hunt

Physical Fitness

Our hunts require different levels of fitness. Hunts out of base camps like black bear, moose or winter wolf typically require a lesser fitness level than backcountry hiking or horseback hunts. Please talk to us about your physical fitness prior to your booking a hunt and we can tailor the perfect hunt suited to your physical abilities.

Communication

We are dedicated to make your hunt with us a trip of a lifetime. Proper communication is key to be able to fulfill this goal. If you have any concerns regarding any issues around the hunt, please do not hesitate to communicate these with us as early as they arise.

Wounded Game Policy

Our guides will do their best to get you as close as possible for a perfect shot on your trophy animal and only ethical shots are taken. Therefore wounded animals are the exception. But it does happen. If an animal is wounded, we legally have to make every effort to retrieve it. Every wounded animal will be considered a harvest and the hunt for this particular species will then be over.

After the Hunt

Trophy Care

All animals will be properly caped, salted and dried after harvesting. Unless otherwise advised, all trophies will be delivered to professional taxidermist Steve Rutherford at the end of each season.  The taxidermist can professionally mount your trophy for you or ship it to your preferred taxidermist at home.

Meat Care

We pride ourselves in taking every last bit of edible meat out and keeping it clean. Large amounts of meat can only be taken home if you are driving to camp. In this case, please bring a sufficient amount of meat bags and cheese-cloths which is going to enable us to keep your meat as clean as possible. However, airlines allow you to travel with a cooler of about 50 lbs of choice cuts as extra baggage. No meat will ever be wasted. Some will be utilized in camp, some split between the guides and most of it gets donated.

Gratuities

Guiding is a lifestyle. All our guides love their job and they will give their best to provide you with a memorable hunting experience. Gratuities are not mandatory, but greatly appreciated! Industry standard is anywhere between 5% and 15% of the hunt cost.
