"Outfitting is our passion, our lifestyle, and our dream!"
“I have hunted with NWT Outfitters in their old camp and the new one, three times from 2012 to 2019 and each hunt was exceptional. Their paperwork, logistics, camp and guides are all first rate. Their area is game rich with high density and excellent genetics. I highly recommend their outfit.”
“I have now hunted successfully with the Lancaster’s five times, both at their Nahanni Butte and NWT guiding territories for Yukon-Alaskan Moose and Mountain Caribou. The accommodations, food, fantastic geography, equipment, crew, wildlife and of course the Lancaster Family are second to none. Their passion, experience and professionalism all contribute to ensuring your success on your chosen hunt. In my opinion as far as outfitters are concerned in the NWT or Yukon, they should be considered the best.”

“I have hunted with the Lancaster family for sheep, moose, and mountain caribou. All of my hunts were top notch from start to finish. It's one heck of an adventure every time! I had heard for years that NWT outfitters was the place to go and after going myself I now tell people the same thing.“
“I have hunted, and outfitted many sheep and other animals around the world. The Lancaster family is second to none when it comes to sheep hunting in the north. Their food in camp is excellent, and the people are even better. They will go the extra mile to ensure safety, and success for their clients. I’m proud to hunt with the Lancaster’s, and call them friends.”

“I have hunted with the Lancaster’s since 2012. Since then, I have been back to the fabled Mackenzie Mountains three times to chase sheep with them. Their camp is a family affair, with the same faces year after year, many whom I call friends. Their guides are top notch and know the area; the accommodations are comfortable on and off of the mountain. Jim and Clay do all they can to make your hunt comfortable and successful. Their area is game rich, many times I have glassed multiple world class sheep without moving my binoculars. I have taken two terrific Dall Sheep and one beautiful Fannin. I will be back to hunt with the Lancaster’s, hope to see you there.”
“I have had superb hunts with Jim and Clay Lancaster at both Nahanni Butte and their June Lake NWT outfitters locations. Staff and guides were excellent. They use helicopters to efficiently move hunters to and from hunting areas. Game was plentiful and I was successful with a terrific Dall ram, Mountain Goat, Alaska Yukon Moose, and Mountain Caribou. You can’t make a better outfitter choice!"
TROPHY & MEAT CARE
Our operation prides itself in top quality skinning and hide preparation. We will skin, flesh, and salt dry all hides for shipping or mounting with Dakota Taxidermy. Brian Kadermas has worked with our operation for several decades. His amazing taxidermy work and organization is of the highest standard.
Our operation prides itself in top quality meat care. All of your meat will be removed from the field and transported back to our basecamp. Our camps have walk-in coolers to keep all meat in the best condition possible. We understand that airline travel does not always allow you to take all of your meat. If you would prefer to take a cooler or two home we can assist you to cut, wrap and freeze your portions for your travels home. The remainder of the balance of meat is a very welcome donation to the community of the Mackenzie valley.
