In November of 2012, my dad and I met up in Canada for what has been the best hunting experience of my life. This was my first guided hunting trip so I really didn’t know what to expect. Any expectations that I did have were far exceeded by Whiteswan Lake Outfitters.
My dad and I chose to have a guide each while in Whiteswan Lake which I will always do when using a guide from now on. Dad, 69 years old and I, 36 years old have very different physical abilities, a big factor when hunting in the mountains. Whiteswan Lake Outfitters tailored each of our hunts to our abilities and preferences. Both hunts resulted in a very nice Mule Deer for each of us. My guide, Chris, and hiked for hours to put glass and stalk deer. This in itself made my Mule Deer trophy all the more important to me. My dad’s hunt with Darryl, one of the owners, involved a combination of spotting from the truck and shorter walks to find the deer.
Although our hunting approaches varied, my dad and I thoroughly enjoyed hunting at Whiteswan Lake. I am happy to recommend Whiteswan Lake Outfitters to anyone no matter your age or physical capabilities. In addition to the skilled guides, the food, lodging, organization, hospitality was all five star and I will be back someday.

White swan offers wonderful accommodations with clean, warm sleeping quarters as well as a lodge to relax in and visit at the end of the day. Meals for everyone are “family style” in the lodge and better food you will never find! The lodge and cabins are meticulously clean and well maintained and there is running water in a bathroom available for showers at the end of the day. The beauty of the view and the surroundings is beyond compare. All of the staff are friendly and of good character with no coarse or inappropriate language ever witnessed. The guides are accommodating as to whatever style or difficulty of hunting that suits your needs and desires. Whether you want to hunt hard all day or come in during the middle of the day to relax & eat lunch, they are willing to tailor the hunt to whatever you desire. The guides try their best to get you a chance at the game you are seeking and are genuinely interested in seeing that you have a successful hunt.

The scenery was the most spectacular we’ve ever seen. The hospitality, accommodations, and food were superb, especially the shaggy mane mushroom soup. Tim and Darryl worked extremely hard as our guides and we couldn’t have asked for more effort to help us get our elk. I can say without reservation that we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
