Looking for a single species hunt for mountain caribou with a reputable outfitter. Looking for a big bull versus lots of caribou

Has a lot of caribou, know him personally never hunted with him. He is from Wyoming.

Has a lot of caribou operates up against the Yukon border, know him personally never hunted with him. He is originally from Austria and his wife is German. Also wonderful people, and no BS.

Mountain caribou are ballbusting expensive right now. I wouldn't hunt them in BC unless you just wanted to go about 3 times to get one.

I have zero experience with either one of these folks as an oufitter.

I know also know Travis Mayer from Williston Lake Outfitters and two brothers who are rodeo cowboys who own another oufitting place on Williston lake. There are caribou there, but they are rare.

Raven throat is about 20,000 for a mountain caribou with the cost of a charter. Nahanni caribou hunts are dependent on a sheep hunt booking. So you are for 30,000 for the combo.

There are a few good outfitters in BC but you are better off looking at the southern Yukon and the Mackenzie's in the NWT.
Have a look at the outfitters on their respective association websites.

https://www.yukonoutfittersassociation.com/

https://www.huntnwt.com

Caesar Lake Outfitters in the southern Yukon is a good outfit, as is NWT Outfitters in the NWT. There are others of course and it pays to do your due diligence. As mentioned by BWW, mountain caribou hunts have really gone up in price over the last decade, so be prepared for sticker shock. Be sure you check the rates out carefully and what is included and what is not.

You may have to wait in line but I would go with Fire Mountain if you really want a big bull.

I would suggest visiting with Tim Mervyn - Mervyn's Yukon Outfitting. I hunted with Tim in 2017 and took a 425 7/8 bull, 30 something in the B & C book. If you look at the top 50 Mtn Caribou you will see several near Aishihik Lake, which is right in the middle of Tim's area. Good Luck.

in the area you mentionned in the yukon there is a lot of local hunting pressure.

About 100 miles NW of Whitehorse, access by plane only. Then horses from camp. No local pressure while I was there.

You'll have a good hunt with them. They have been in the business for many years and it is gorgeous country they hunt.
