Yukon Big Game Outfitters

YBGO’s concession is renowned for its wild and uncompromising land which is home to some of the most abundant big game found in the Yukon. Yukon Big Game Outfitters Ltd is insured and licensed by the Yukon Government. We hold the exclusive rights to guide clients in outfitting area #20; the largest outfitting concession in the Yukon. It is located in south-central Yukon, northeast of Whitehorse and covers approximately 14 million acres or 21,600 square miles of wilderness hunting ground. Our camps are remote and accessible only by plane or horseback. Millions of acres have never been touched, leaving the landscape, game and genetics much the way they were 50 years ago.

The terrains very from scenic rugged mountains, giant vast plateaus, willow covered valleys and 100s of miles of rivers with countless lakes, including the mountain ranges of the Cassiar Mnts, Pelly Mnt and the Cambell Mnt Range with the highest peak being 7700 feet.

Most of our adventures take place between 3000 and 6000 feet. YBGO’s area may be one of the last great areas that is has not yet been explored. The past long standing outfitter, Doug Smarch, owned this area for 40 years and ran two key camps… Since taking over the area we continue to scout and set up in new areas for our clients’ adventure. The success our clients enjoy is outstanding and can be found in our hunt highlights report by request.

YBGO is outfitted by Shawn and Sandra Raymond who live in Whitehorse Yukon where they are raising their family. Shawn & Sandra where raised in the north and Shawn has been in the outfitting business all of his adult life working in different Yukon and NWT areas for some well known outfitters where he learned what it takes to run Yukon’s giant area. Shawn and Sandra also owned and ran Coal River Outfitters a BC stone sheep and moose area for 10 years in northeastern BC before stepping in YBGO in 2012. They can be found July through October in the area with their clients.
