We are thrilled to announce GOABC’s NEW Ultimate B.C. Mountain Hunter Auction, taking place in person on March 23rd, 2024, in Kelowna, BC. This old school, you-must-be-in-the-room-to-bid auction is the only place where you will find this variety of B.C. species available for auction.
We expect to have the sheep slam – yes, even a Desert sheep – plus many more hunts for the discerning hunter to choose from. Our goal is to showcase each of the 20 species that you can hunt in B.C. Be sure to get yourself there for this incredible auction.
The Guide Outfitters Association of British Columbia (GOABC) is a nonprofit society that was established in 1966 to represent the guide outfitting industry to government, and advocate for science-based wildlife management.
Our vision is for a province with a strong and stable guide outfitting industry and abundant big game populations for all to enjoy, both today and in the future. As passionate advocates for wildlife, GOABC is the recognized voice of the guide outfitting family. With integrity and professionalism, GOABC promotes conservation, stewardship, and sustainable use of wildlife.
We encourage you to bid with confidence knowing that your support is providing the funds necessary to further our organization’s mission.
