About Us

mitchell lakeChris Franke

This year marks my 32 second year in the outfitting industry.  Throughout those years I have gained a vast range of knowledge and through my guiding skills several trophies have been entered in the esteemed Boone and Crockett Book, SCI and the BC Mountain Hunter Record Book, including caribou, grizzly, black bear and whitetail. My extensive years of guiding and familiarity with the outdoors is not just limited to successfully filling tags but to offering the greatest gift of all…an unforgettable wilderness adventure. My greatest joy is not only for you to leave with trophies but also with experiences to treasure that will be cherished and shared with friends and family, stories that will remain for generations to come.




 Artemis (Arte)

Arte is a Rhodesian Ridgeback from southern Alberta.  After extensive research I decided on this breed for both hunting and companionship.  She is intelligent, a quick learner, loves people and great with children.  Named after the Greek Goddess of the hunt, wild animals and the wilderness, which is the equivalent of Diana, Goddess of Hunting.  Arte is now 7 years old with a mind of her own (she sees me pickup her pack and runs, but as you can see by the picture doesn’t always get her way).  She loves hunting, boat rides, hiking and trail rides.  She has an incredible nose which makes her a fabulous moose and bear tracker.  She is completely spoiled but takes great care of me.
