    Description

    Highly sought after hunting territory in the southeast corner of British Columbia, about a 1.5 hour drive from the Alberta border and 1 hour from the US/Montana border. The guiding territory is located in the Bull River, Region 4, management units 4-22 and 4-24 and covers almost 570 square miles of the most spectacular terrain in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. The area is long and narrow, starting at the Kootenay River and extending all the way to the summit, allowing you to hunt year-round, from the early season high country all the way down to the winter range. The diversity of big game is unparalleled, providing exceptional hunting opportunities.

    Quota Includes:

    • 3 bighorn sheep over 5 years
    • 9 mountain goat over 5 years
    • 3 moose over 5 years
    • Other species such as elk, deer, cougars and black bears are unlimited (within normal hunter bag limits)

    Guiding quota that include bighorn sheep are highly sought after and not easy to come by. Sheep hunts bring in big dollars for the territory owner, with each hunt bringing in $55,000 USD or almost $70,000 CAD, with prices continuing to climb.

    The territory includes exclusive guiding rights to 570 square miles of exceptional mountain range with elevations between 3,500 and 10,000 feet. Over the years the current operator has developed a comfortable and efficient guiding operation with a reputation of quality and personalized service. The current operator has been committed to promoting and enhancing the health and preservation of the resource.

    Included are the territory accommodations, including two main camps, the Blackfoot, and North Fork each with approximately 6 buildings on each site consisting of comfortable cabin-style bunks, cookhouses, and showering facilities. The bunks are of simple 2×4 construction with stock foamies and pillows, in camp. The cookhouses are equipped with full kitchens including propane stoves, wood stoves, propane fridges, and running water. The showers run on propane fired, instant hot water, and are a great luxury after a long day of hunting. The sale includes tack along with 18 horses/mules and 2 horse trailers. Also included and attached to the territory is grazing licence with 62 AUMS for grazing the horses/mules.

    There are also three spike camps, Alpine, Bull Mountain, and Cliff lake, all strategically located throughout the guiding territory. All spike camps are also comfortable log cabins located in pristine settings.

    Over the years the current operator has limited each of the main camps to four hunters, with one hunter per guide unless otherwise arranged. They have designated hunters to a certain camp, depending on their physical ability, number of hunters in their party, and of course their requests. A full time cook is provided in the two main camps. Access to all of the camps is restricted, during the hunting season, from motorized vehicles, meaning that the current operator uses horses extensively, not only to conduct the hunts but to access the camps. All supplies and gear are packed in via horseback. Hunters can expect a 1-2 hour drive by pick-up truck to the corrals followed by a 1-3 hour horseback trip, depending on which camp they are staying at.

    Current operator has an extensive client list that would be made available to the new owner. Call the listing REALTOR® today for more information.

    Area Data

    The territory includes exclusive guiding rights to 570 square miles of exceptional mountain range with elevations between 3,500 and 10,000 feet.

    With origins high in the southern Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, the Bull River is a classic mountain stream with a healthy, thriving population of wild westlope cutthroat trout, as well as the odd bull trout in the river’s low reaches. Bull River is a ghost town in the East Kootenay region of British Columbia, located on the east side of the Kootenay River at the mouth of the Bull River.

    The Steeples Traverse follows the skyline of The Steeples, a 2,843-metre range at the southern end of the Hughes Ranges, east of Norbury Lake Provincial Park and the Rocky Mountain Trench. The ridge is over five kilometres long and can be seen from the Crowsnest Highway and Cranbrook. The closest well-known peak with established alpine routes is Mount Fisher to the north-northwest.
