Sounds like a great idea, and I'm sure you aware of the regs about flying into hunting areas and time limitations before you can "pop one off"? Also check to make sure you're not in an outfitters backyard, or he might just "pop you off".

Pointy. A rather uninformed response. I know almost every outfitter in northern BC and they would be the first to lend a hand to anyone in need. Might be a bit grumpy but they wouldn't strand you. Good try though. Paint something else with your broad brush.

Thanks

Mike

Hmmm. If I knew of a good place to go land and go sheep hunting in northern BC, I personally wouldn't tell anyone about it. Least of all someone who just moved in. Nothing personal, but that's how it is. I wouldn't get my hopes up.

A better idea would be to get involved with some of the folks who live there already, make friends, mb join a local fish and game association. Try not to come off as the guy who just moved in and can hardly wait to go shoot one of everything, rather try to make it clear you re there for the long term and interested in the country and the game. (That's true right?)

Then maybe people will be interested in giving advice.

I do not know all the outfitters in NBC but I do know a lot around Atlin, Teslin and Dease Lake. While prospecting i found them the most helpful people. They wanted to know where you were operating so that they were aware of any potential conflicts with their clients. I doubt they would give advice on where to hunt, but I do know they had no issues with other (legal) hunters operating within their franchise.

And I am very sure they will give you accurate details on any and all airstrips within their area.

YMMV
