Hunting with Blackstone: The Area

blackstone_map_local IMG_0292

Our area is 10 000 square miles located north of Dawson City, Yukon.  A question we are often asked is how we get into our hunting area.

Whitehorse is the capital of the Yukon Territory and there are several daily flights from the south to Whitehorse International Airport.  You’ll overnight in Whitehorse and then a local air charter service Alkan Air has their shuttle van pick you up in the morning and takes you to their facility at the Whitehorse Airport.  From there our clients fly on either a Twin Engine Turbo Prop King Air, or by Turbo Prop Cessna Caravan on wheels.  http://alkanair.com/

This flight is 310 air miles and normally takes an hour and a half to two hours one way, to the big airstrip at our base camp.  If the weather cooperates you’ll see much of the beautiful landscape the Yukon has to offer during the flight.  The last few minutes you will pass through the Tombstone Territorial Park.  The northern part of the park encompasses the southern part of our hunting concession.  Once you’re in our hunting concession, all aerial transportation will be provided by our own air service, Nahoni Air Ltd.
