From coast to coast to coast, Canada’s beautiful, rugged wilderness, inhabited by a vast array of wildlife, from fowl to big game, draws hunting enthusiasts from all over the world. Hunting in the pristine Canadian wilderness brings with it inherent hazards, challenges and a huge responsibility that even the most seasoned hunter must acknowledge.

Sport hunting in Canada is highly regulated.  Guides know the hunting rules and regulations, know the best places to hunt, can offer tips to novice hunters, and are experienced outdoors people who are invaluable in an emergency situation.
