It is only possible to take large quantities of meat home if you are driving to/from Prince George. All commercial airlines refuse to haul large quantities of meat. For those hunters that are driving and wish to take meat home from their hunt please bring an adequate supply of extra large meat bags and cheese cloth, as we do not supply these items. The meat bags and cheesecloth will enable your guide to retrieve your meat in much better condition and thus there will be less trimming losses of your meat. You meat will be maintained and carefully prepared upon harvest of animal. We reserve the right to use a small portion of your meat for camp purposes if it becomes necessary.
However, you are allowed to travel with a small cooler holding 40-50lbs of meat. Please bring this cooler with you, as we do not supply such items. Any meat left behind will be utilized for camp, crew, or donated to the local charity. No meat will ever be wasted.
Trophy shipments are arranged through a local taxidermist. The nominal fee of approximately $400.00us is payable directly to the taxidermist. All trophies go by truck or air and are shipped C.O.D. It may be necessary to split moose, caribou horns to fly them out. If however, it is a record head or if the client is adamant about not splitting, we will get them out un-split but costs might very well triple.
Our local Taxidermist handles all our trophies. Please find a link to their website below.
