What To Expect

The Experience

For most hunters, woodland bison is the pinnacle trophy.  These majestic creatures are so large, you will surely be stunned when you see them up close. These are native, free ranging woodland bison in their natural habitat. Fortunately, they are not a pure wood bison – which means you are allowed to export your cape and horns to the United States. 

The bull may weight up to 3000 lbs. and a cow 1500 lbs.  Studies have shown that many of the bulls in this area are ancient, and trophy potential is very high. There is also the satisfaction of having hunted a rare and awesome trophy – a true free ranging woodland bison. The very elusive timber wolf inhabits the same area as the woodland bison and can be hunted with reasonable success at any time during the hunt.

Most of the hunting will be done on snowmobiles and quads, and it’s common to travel up to 80 km (50 miles) in a day in snow 1-3 feet deep. Your days will be filled with excitement tracking down the legendary woodland bison. The hunt can be long and difficult, but for the avid trophy hunter it is the thrill of a lifetime.

Our fair-weather season includes the month of October and the last two weeks of May.  The winter hunts occur between November 1st and April 30th.

Your Hunting Day

– No Such Thing As Tired!


We’re up early and it will be a long day with lots of travel and sometimes extensive walking if we’re tracking.

We’ll stop to eat a bag lunch, drinks and snacks. You may be travelling through 3 feet of water or 2 feet of mud and winching your way out when stuck.  If you are coming for a winter hunt, we use snowmobiles a lot and the snow can be up to 6 feet deep.  If temperatures dip below -40 C/F, it will be too dangerous to hunt.


When we return from the hunt, you can wash up and relax while your home-cooked meal is prepared.  It’s a great opportunity to share your hunting stories or talk about the day.


Continental breakfast
Sandwiches, snacks and drinks
Hot supper
We are happy to accommodate allergies and sensitivities wherever possible.


You will normally be housed in a cabin, wall tent or hard wall trailer – it is dependent on weather and the hunting area chosen by your guide.  Amenities will vary by location.
