Tim and Astrid Faiers are the owner and operators of SMO and have been involved in the Outfitting business for the past 37 years. Our territory located north of the Idaho border encompasses 4000sq kilometers running along the beautiful Kootenay Lake in the Purcell Mountains. The Kootenay lake guiding area has proven to be the most rewarding business move we have made for our many clients and ourselves! With the abundance of big game animals, many of them going into the Boone and crocket; we have fulfilled many hunters dreams whether it be a Black Bear, Cougar, Bobcat, Mule deer, Whitetail, Shiras moose, Elk or Mt. Goat. This new guiding area has proven to offer fair chase hunts at its best!
