Nahanni Butte / NWT OutfittersWe would like to thank you for considering or choosing our family operation for your Canadian hunting destination. We have been providing clients World Class Adventure hunts in the Mackenzie Mountains of the NWT for the past 2 decades.

Our two territories consist of 7000 plus square miles of roadless untouched, game rich wilderness. It is truly a mountain hunters paradise.

Nahanni Butte / NWT OutfittersWe offer highly successful backpack trips using helicopter, riverboat and Argos. We hunt for Dall Sheep, Alaska Yukon Moose, Mountain Caribou, Mountain Goat as well as the occasional Wolf or Wolverine.

Dall Sheep: The Mackenzie Mountain are renowned for the high density of quality Dall Sheep. It’s not uncommon on our trips to see 25 plus Rams on one hunt. Over the years our crew has maintained a very high age average (10-11 years) on the sheep we choose to harvest. Because of these management practices the numbers and quality remains high. Our rifle hunts are normally 98% successful. We also take many successful archery sheep hunters each year. These are mountain backpack trips that require clients to be in the best shape possible.

Alaska Yukon Moose: Over the past 2 decades hunting for Giant Moose has taken off. The areas we hunt in the Mackenzies consistently produce spectacular moose. Not only do they score well, they look great. The average moose we take is 60″ and scores 200-215. With a couple record book moose taken each year. Our moose hunts are normally 98% successful for rifle clients. For those clients looking for quality meat, as well as a big trophy bull, the helicopter is really efficient at getting these huge animals out cleanly. We also offer these trips for archery with high success.

Mountain Caribou: We have incredible caribou hunting in our area. Many of clients describe our caribou hunts as an “absolute blast”. Our high mountain helicopter caribou hunts produce consistently big caribou with high success. We offer these trips as a single species or an add on to a sheep or moose.

Mountain Goat: The Nahanni Area of the NWT has some great goat numbers. We hunt in the ragged range along the Yukon border area. Using a helicopter it allows us to place clients into country that could otherwise never be accessed. If your looking for a good goat on a hunt that has 98% success this is the place.
