Welcome to the Yukon! I have been guiding here in the north over forty years. At the tender age of sixteen I began working for my grandfather, George Dalziel, one of the pioneer outfitters in Northern British Columbia. As with most young guides I started at the bottom of the pecking order, wrangling horses and learning from those with more experience. Many seasons were spent polishing my guiding skills in the Cassiar Mountains, looking after horses in the winter, running a trap line and becoming a proficient bush pilot. People were starting to wonder when I might grow up and get a “real job”…
Our horses will soon arrive at the trail head, the Supercub is safely in the hanger and my email box full of outstanding trophy pictures. Another excellent hunting season is over….31 years of outfitting!
Once again we hosted a multi-national group of hunters; New Zealand, Mexico, Norway, Germany, France, Iceland, Canada, Sweden, USA and Denmark. For most it was their first time hunting dall sheep or moose. Typical of our clientele they were not members of an elite “hunting club”. They were more interested in the total wilderness experience than record book trophies solely defined by inches.
