WELCOME TO RAVEN’S THROAT
Thank you very much for your interest in our hunts. Raven’s Throat Outfitters conducts its hunts in the exclusive outfitting area S/OT/O5, which is located in the heart of the Mackenzie Mountains of the Northwest Territories, Canada. Our area is 6,000+ square miles, or 3.8 million acres; just shy of two Yellowstone parks. The area is incredibly diverse and has unsurpassed populations of Dall sheep, Alaska/Yukon moose and mountain caribou. The area is so vast and wild; therefore, we cannot possibly hunt it all in one year, and that means a lot of our area will go unhunted for several years at a time. We have a very conservative management approach: we harvest 25 rams, 25-30 caribou and 8 moose per season. Although the area could handle double or even triple our harvest numbers, we feel it is critical to leave a very healthy number of older trophy class animals out there to breed and lead the younger animals through the winter and spring hardships. In the 41 years of being in the guiding and outfitting industry full time in the lower 48, Alaska and abroad, I can say with confidence that the Mackenzie Mountains of the N.W.T. are the most game rich, under hunted and wildest destinations in North America, if not the world.
Our 2023 season has come to an end, and we could not be happier. From top to bottom, our crew rocked! Our guides, I feel, are the very best in the business and our camp crew makes us all look great. We were very concerned early in the season with the record amount of wildfires and smoke in the North, but we got a dominant west wind and it gave us clear skies almost all season. We had warmer than average weather which made the field living very nice. As always, our success was high. In fact, we went 100% on sheep with a bunch of great rams taken. Of the 27 rams, our age class was a strong 10.5 years old. Our rams averaged 37" with some real studs being taken. Our moose season was lots of fun also with 100% success and 9 great bulls being taken. Caribou was 100% and are such a treat to hunt. We always enjoy living with these incredible animals of the North. We took 27 bulls, and they were all beautiful and unique.
We are so blessed to make our living in the incredible MacKenzie Mountains. We try very hard to take care of the land and animals and in return, we feel they take great care of us and our guests.
At Raven’s Throat our mission is not to be one of the best, but to be the best in the industry. We strive to provide outstanding professional guides, the best equipment available, clean, comfortable base camp accommodations, great cooks and service-oriented camp staff. We want to give our clients top shelf service from beginning to end and beyond.
Our gratitude goes way beyond arm’s length to many incredible people. We would like to thank all of our clients for honoring us with their trust, faith and money, and for choosing us for their N.W.T. adventure. Without all of you, none of this or our wonderful way of life would be possible. We want to thank our exceptional crew for their extra hard work, professionalism and commitment to our mission. You are the best in the business! Thank you also to our awesome aviation team: North Wright Airways, Fireweed Helicopters and Alpine Aviation. You guys rock!
