Tim and Astrid Faiers are the owner and operators of SMO and have been involved in the Outfitting business for the past 37 years. Tim's father was an Outfitter in the late 50's and early 60's, so Tim got a taste of the life style at a very early age. Tim started as an assistant guide outfitter for a local outfitter back when he was 17 years of age. Tim realized that after guiding for a few years this is what he would like to do for a living.
We spent 20 years guiding in the South East corner of British Columbia north of Cranbrook, in the Rocky Mountains. This area would prove to be a very good territory with lots of great hunting. As our clientele grew we realized that we needed a larger territory. We decided to purchase the new territory that we are currently operating in the Purcell Mountains running along the beautiful Kootenay Lake. Located north of the Idaho border this area encompasses 4000sq kilometers. 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!
Here at Shadow Mountain Outfitters, our mission is to insure a safe and exciting adventure with the upmost emphasis on fair chase and to follow the code of ethics set forth by the GOABC. Let us be part of your next adventure and help you fulfill your dream of a lifetime.
