Laidman Lake BC

Fawnie Mountain Hunts is based at Laidman Lake BC in the north east portion of BC’s vast Chilcotin Plateau. The area has a long history of outfitting and “frontier” cattle operations. Our guiding territory is roughly 1500 square miles and encompasses the Fawnie Mountain Range, Entiako Park Protected area, and portions of Tweedsmuir Park. While our main Lodge is reached by road, a large portion of our guide territory can only be accessed by airplane. 

The area hosts an array of wildlife with good populations of moose, bears (black and grizzly), caribou, wolves, and numerous other fur bearing animal species. Fishing in the area can be excellent with a healthy population of Rainbow Trout that are renowned for their fighting ability and flavor.
