We are the sole owners of Blackstone Outfitters with 30 years of experience in the Guiding and Outfitting industry. We have been in the Blackstone area since 1999. Jim is an experienced bush pilot and has been flying in the north since 1979. Most of your correspondence will be through Adrienne as she is the office manager. She is also very involved in the operation during the hunting season. Our 3 sons are very involved in our outfit as well. Logan has been guiding since 2009 after many years of wrangling horses, and Warren has been on a couple sheep hunts as a packer and guide trainee. Colin, our youngest, has taken over the fishing guide role at base camp with much pride, and was very excited to take to the mountains as a packer in 2012. We are committed to making your hunt a great experience with the highest opportunity for success.
Blackstone Outfitters operates in a region of approximately 10,000 square miles located in the northern Yukon. We hunt the North slope of the Ogilvie Mountains along the Blackstone, Ogilvie, Hart, and Whitestone River watersheds. The area encompasses a wide variety of terrains, with rugged mountains, beautiful river valleys, and vast tundra flats. Wilderness in the true sense of the word, hunting this country can be an incredible experience. Our area has yet to be hunted throughout, and each year we explore exciting new territory. Our established areas produce many high quality trophies as well. We take a limited number of hunters to ensure our clients are provided with top quality hunts.
Our people are ultimately what make our outfit outstanding. We strive to have the most experienced and helpful crew available, from our highly skilled mountain cooks and horse wranglers to our seasoned professional guides. Our guides are qualified, knowledgeable and have a keen interest in hunting. They strive to provide the hunter with a memorable, exciting, and successful experience. It is not uncommon to gain a long-term friend after as little as a 10-day hunt with your guide.
We are continuously upgrading our equipment to ensure our clients’ success. From our fleet of airplanes to our solid, sure-footed mountain horses and mules, we assure you that our equipment is top of the line.
