The area that I operate was founded by my parents, Hap and Clara Bowden who guided this area since the early 1950’s before guide areas were established.
I purchased the area in 1977 and Lori joined me in 1978 and we have operated the same area since that time. I have spent my whole life in this area guiding clients and trapping since I was in my early teens, some 42 years now. Lori has brought a career in nursing to the business and since all of our children have grown up and left for greener pastures, we now have built a new lodge in the middle of our area to spend and share the beauty of this country with our clients.
We are licensed big game hunting and Angling guides. We offer guided hunting trips for Moose, Black Bear, Wolves, Mountain Lion, and Lynx, also hunting for Upland Birds. Our guests can also enjoy wilderness angling for wild rainbow trout, dolly varden, brown trout and sockeye salmon.
We are located in north central British Columbia, southeast of Prince George, B.C.
Outfitting has been a passion of mine and I have owned and operated this family business since 1977. Moose hunting has been the majority of our business. I personally guide on all hunts.
Our Hunting Base camp and wilderness Lodge and guest cabins are located 31 miles 50 km, east of Quesnel , B.C. situated by Victoria Creek on a 3000 foot meadow with a grass airstrip.
We have an exclusive hunting area of over 2500 square km. of fine hunting country, Moose hunting is the majority of our business in the fall hunting months. We have low resident hunting pressure as Moose and Grizzly Bear are on limited entry hunting. Resident hunting is on a draw system to be able to go hunting in the zones that I operate in. If a resident hunter does not get a draw for Moose hunting and wants to hunt, they must go to a zone that has general open season for Moose Hunting.
We use different methods for hunting, the use of jet Boat, small 4 by 4’s, horses, we also have small boats on remote lakes. Our goal is to provide you with an exceptional unforgettable, guided hunting or backcountry fishing adventure.
Our main lodge has internet access via satellite for our clients. We cater to hunters and fishermen from every ability level. For a Superior Rocky Mountain Wilderness Tour, Contact Cariboo Mountain Outfitters!
