Chilcotin Holidays

Spring Bear Viewing, time to check out Bc wildlife!


The bears are back! Ranch staff have spotted quite a few bears already this season. They’ve come out of their wintering dens and are looking for food! The fresh green grass and sprouting shrubs are just what they’re looking for. Ranch staff went Bc wildlife viewing on 1 May, and spotted 31 mule deer, one coyote, six grouse, twelve Californian Big Horn sheep, and four bears (two cubs, a sow and a four year old male). Spring is a great time to see the wildlife! Check out our website for details on our four-day Bc wildlife viewing trips, there are a few spots still available in May.



Although the horses are hesitant to get back to work after months, with “Tent City” set up and the first guide school of the season underway, the familiar hustle and bustle around the ranch indicates a new season has begun. Trimming hooves, shoeing, packing, long reining, clearing trail, heading to camp - the long-standing tradition of passing down knowledge about the industry to new, eager wilderness guides is a highlight around the Ranch. Whether you’re taking part in the training or witnessing it during your guest ranch stay, one thing is certain – you’ll experience the magic of the mountains and the wilderness like never before, and the best of Bc wildlife. The horses at the Ranch are eagerly awaiting May 15th. This is their favourite day of the year, because after eating dry hay for 6½ months, they are released up onto the range with abundant fresh grass and the freedom to roam the mountains.
