Welcome to Western Canada, Welcome to Big Creek, Welcome to Your Hunting Adventure!

Have you always dreamed of hunting in Canada’s untouched wilderness for that trophy of a lifetime?
Then you came to the right address!

If you are looking for that adventure of a life time, then let us be your guide. Be assured, our local guides are professionals in everything they do. We have been in the business for years and know the area by heart, just like where exactly the game is concentrated at each time of the year, making Anvil Mountain guiding your next best hunting destination.
Every hunt is accompanied also by a German-speaking assistent guide.

Arrival Information & Accommodation

If coming by plane, you will arrive at Williams Lake airport, where we will personally be waiting for you. We will then take you out to the Big Creek Lodge. The 2-hour drive to the lodge is a possibility to get to know your hosts/guide as well as to hear a bit about the area and days ahead of you.

If you would rather drive here yourself, then we will provide you with detailed directions to the Lodge.

The 4-star lodge, including the ranch with about 20 horses, is beautifully situated over the Big Creek. All lodge rooms and the suite are cozy and comfortably furnished. Shower / WC, laundry, hair dryer and underfloor heating are standard. King size, queen size or twin beds. Most rooms have balcony / terrace, some have large panoramic windows. Free Wi-Fi is available. Cable TV is in the living area of the lodge. Full board (3 meals daily & certain non-alcoholic drinks) included. Cabins with bath and terrace are bookable on request.

Depending on which hunt you book with us, you will either be staying at the main Lodge or staying in one of our outpost camps. These camps consist of warm cozy cabins to keep you out of the elements. Some of these camps are only accessible by horseback.

Itinerary

Your hunting adventure will always begin at Big Creek Lodge. Some hunts will be conducted from here. Other hunts will require us to head to one of the outpost camps. If your adventure takes you to one of these camps then we will get everyone fitted to his or her own horse and tack. We either explore the trails around the lodge or head out to our hunting camp. If you are heading in to the mountains, then the day on which the hunting starts, the horses and gear get loaded into a trailer and driven 12 km / 8 miles to where the trail starts. There we load the horses with all the gear and supplies for the hunt and ride the last stretch to the hunting lodge (20 km / 12 miles). Arriving there, you will get a warm meal and a good night’s rest. You can even take a hot shower if you’d like. From the camp you will hunt either by foot or on horseback, this depends on the decision of the hunting guide and the accessibility of the game.

Based on the type of game you wish to hunt, we will use different methods including spot and stalk or calling. This will be discussed closely before the actual hunt. Hunting days usually tend to be rather long, so be prepared for an exciting experience. When you hunting trip is over and we have successfully harvested some game, we will return to the Big Creek Lodge for the last evening. We will enjoy a lovely home-cooked meal together before taking you back to Williams Lake the next day. Our guides will help you take care of the trophy, bring it to a taxidermist with you and assist in preparing it for shipping.

The Hunting Territory

The territory consists of wild, heavily timbered country dotted with small creeks, swamps and lakes. One third of it lays in the remote and nearly untouched Big Creek Provincial Park consisting of Jack pine, Spruce and Balsam forests, which are broken up by swampy creeks and meadow systems. Berries, grasses, young shoots in the spring as well as the willow, poplar and red osier which grow here are ideal for bear, moose and deer, but also for other game such as wolves and coyotes. The elevation ranges from 4000 to more than 8000 feet. You will love the views of the mighty Anvil Mountain. Our hunting area is about 450km² in size and perfect habitat for all kinds of big game.

Our hunting area is huge and perfect for moose and deer hunting, but also for black bear and wolf. The moose grow to be monsters ranging from as small as 30” to as large as 60”, but larger ones have been seen as well. All of our hunters have been satisfied up until now and we do our best that you will be too.

 

10-day Moose Hunt

- success ratio: 99%

The area around Anvil Mountain which our outfit is named after is some of the best moose hunting country in the Chilcotin. We offer trophy bulls averaging from 45 to 48” and larger. Our success ratio has been 99% in the last years, making this one of our most sought-after hunts.

We never take a high number of hunters which puts less pressure on the moose and gives our hunters more one on one time with their guide. Nonetheless, we offer different packages up to several hunters or observers at once to accommodate our hunters needs and dreams. Contact us for more information.

 

7-day Mule or Whitetail Deer Hunt

- success ratio: 70%

BC is known for the best mule deer hunting around and our hunts are no exception. We offer many different hunts, from our early season high country alpine hunts (availability on request) which have produced some very impressive trophies to our late season low land migration hunts and rut hunts. Each one is different in every way and gives you the choice of picking the adventure that is right for you.

Our high-country alpine hunts are for those that like to get out and climb a mountain or two to find that big gnarly mule buck. Backpacking, horseback riding and spike camps are the norm during these hunts, so good physical condition is a must. The rewards are high with many bucks being taken in the 160 to 200 B&C. Shots out to 300 yards are very common, so come prepared. If you are looking for that wall hanger of a lifetime then this is the hunt for you.

Our low-country migration and rut hunts are for those who want a big buck or a nice meat buck, but would rather come back to a hot shower and a warm meal after a long day of hunting. We normally hunt by using 4x4 pickups and ATVs and cover a lot of ground during the day. Opportunities are high and the quality of the deer are also top notch. We will either spot and stalk or sit in blinds and tree stands during these hunts. Contact us for more information.

 

7-day Black Bear Hunt

- success rate: 60%

Our area holds a high concentration of black bears and lots of color. We normally hunt the bears during the spring, but fall bear hunts can also be arranged. Hunts will take place in lush fir covered valley bottoms and open grass lands. These are spot and stalk hunts which can get the blood pumping a little as shots can range from 200 yards to a few feet.

Our outfit has taken some very large bears in the past few years with skulls ranging from 18 to 21 inches. Colors can range from jet black, dark brown to even cinnamon. Typically, bear hunts are done either on foot or by ATV. Contact us for more information.

 

7-day Wolf Hunt

Nice winter hunts for those you want to experience the harsh conditions in this part of British Columbia. Good, warm and water-proof clothes are an absolute must. Weather and snow conditions always define the nature of these hunts. But snow can also be of an advantage, especially when locating animal tracks. Contact us for more information.

 

 

All hunts above can also be done as combination hunts. Choose a main hunt, and add animals from there to make a combination hunt. Additional cost applies per additional animal.

All above hunts are sold as 2:1, 2 hunters and 1 guide. If you would rather have a 1 on 1 hunt then additional costs will apply. Please contact us for more information.
