Raven's Throat Outfitters - NWT, Canada

Welcome!  Thank you very much for your interest in our hunts.  What a crazy couple of years it's been.  After completely losing our 2020 season due to the big "C," we were elated to hear that we were going to get at least a partial season.  After 10 days of craziness with scheduling, shuffling and rounding up our troops, we managed to host 70% of our hunters for 2021.  It was soooo awesome to get back to doing what we love and live for.  I don't think anyone will ever take anything for granted again after these last two years.

Raven's Throat Outfitters is honored to conduct our hunts in our exclusive outfitting area, S/OT/O5, which is located in the heart of the MacKenzie Mountains of the Northwest Territories, Canada.  Our area is roughly 6,000+ square miles or 3.8 million acres, just a hair smaller than two Yellowstone National Parks.  Our area is very diverse:  with many large rivers and hundreds of tributaries; endless high beautiful mountains; and foothills.  The scenery alone is awe inspiring!  The area is home to unsurpassed populations of Dall sheep, mountain caribou and Alaska/Yukon moose.  We have always maintained a very conservative management approach.  We harvest 25 rams, 25-30 caribou and 8 moose per season.  Although the area could handle double that, we feel it is critical to leave a good number of older trophy animals out there to breed and lead the younger ones through the winter and spring seasons.  In almost 40 years of being full-time in the guiding and outfitting industry, in the U.S., Alaska and abroad, I can say with confidence that the MacKenzie Mountains of the NWT are the most game rich, under hunted and wildest destinations in North America, if not the world.

Our 2021 season was incredible, to say the least.  As we lost our first three hunts out of eight, our harvest was right about 70% of normal.  Our hunters enjoyed untouched country and game that had over a year off.  Our overall success was 99% on sheep, 99% on moose and 98% on caribou.  The few hunters that did not harvest either missed, passed or were not physically able to close the deal.  Our rams averaged 10.5 years old, with the longest being 42 3/4 inches.  Our moose averaged 200+ B & C, and our caribou were awesome as usual.  The weather was actually very friendly this year which made being in the field a pleasure.

At Raven's Throat, it is our mission to provide the highest quality hunts available anywhere.  We pride ourselves in having great guides, cooks and support crew in camp.  We want to give our clients top service from beginning to end and beyond.  Due to Covid and life, we had a few new faces in our crew this year and they were awesome.  We could not have been happier with all of their hard work and dedication to our mission.  I would like to express my greatest appreciation to our clients who not only stuck with us through the last 1 1/2 years, but endured almost torturous travel to get up to and back home from our camp.  The protocol and requirements made it extra-long and expensive for all and not one complaint.  Thank you all so much!

Lastly, I'd like to thank our aviation support, North Wright Airways, for always having our back, and to Capital Helicopter pilots, Matt and Malcolm, for their excellent flying and extra hard work as part of our crew.  We couldn't do any of what we do without these awesome flying companies.  Thank you.

Thank you for your consideration and interest in hunting with Raven's Throat.  Please feel free to call, email or text anytime.  We'd be happy to answer any of your questions and help in any way.  Hope we get the opportunity to serve you someday in the incredible MacKenzie Mountains.
