Big Country Outfitters

If dreaming of moose hunting consumes you, then Big Country Outfitters is the place to visit. Your host Mike Hawkridge will see to it you are offered every opportunity to harvest the animal you are after.

Located in central British Columbia, the prime hunting grounds of the Caribou offers many species to hunt. Big Country specialize in moose and monster black bear hunts, but can also deliver: wolf, mule deer, cougar, lynx and mountain goat hunts.


I have had the privilege to hunt the general area of Big Country for many years. I can attest to the fine animals that are in the area. With Mike as your guide you can be assured of a great hunt while gathering everlasting memories to return home with.

The moose of central British Columbia are not as large as their northern cousins but I can assure you they taste very good. Visit our moose recipes page to see how we cook them up. Moose in this area of British Columbia will dress out in the range of 450 ā€“ 600 pounds (200 ā€“ 270 kg) with some real monsters tipping the scales at over 700 pounds (318 kg).

Of course it will depend on your decision; are you looking to fill the freezer or are you after a wall hanger. Moose antler spread can range from a young spike up to 50 inches wide and more. If you are looking for a real big one you will have to show restraint... there will be many smaller ones you will need to pass on before you find the one you are after.
