Our Guides

Meet the main members of our guiding crew who you will see for most of the season each year.  They are all fantastic at their jobs and will do their best to ensure that everyone has the hunting adventure of a lifetime.

Mike Carter

Mike is the newest member of our outfitting family.  He is a hardworking young man with a great attitude and an accent that the rest of the crew sometimes have trouble understanding.  Mike is a keen hunter and fisherman from New Zealand with a background in farming.  Mike recently left his position as farm manager of a sheep and beef station in the High Country to work on his overseas experience in Canada.  In the off season Mike and his partner will be exploring Canada and the USA.  

Tyler Creyke

Tyler is the youngest of the crew.  He started working with Tahltan Outfitters in 2013 as a wrangler and is quickly making a name for himself as a Moose guide.  Ty is a very hard working you man and is always willing to lend a hand with any job with a smile on his face.  We are very happy to call him part of our outfitting family! 

Eric Havard

Eric brings over thirty five years’ experience to Tahltan Outfitters.  He has guided all over northwestern BC and even ran his own guiding territory for several years.  Eric brings a wealth of knowledge and can answer any question about the outdoors and hunting.  In the off season Eric can be found running Grader and spending time with his wife and horses.

Wade Jensen

We are thrilled that Wade is a part of our crew as he is both a phenomenal guide and excellent horseman!  Wade is a go getter with a positive attitude and skillset to match, not only is he great at hunting but he is also very talented at working with leather (building gorgeous saddles, bridles, and of course the best saddlebags that we have ever used!!).  During the off season Wade spends time with his lovely wife and adorable son, who is going to be quite the little cowboy, just like his dad!   

Bill Lampert

We are very happy to announce that Bill is part of our crew!  Bill is an exceptional guide who hunts hard and gets his game while ensuring that all are safe and having fun.  Bill has been guiding for over fifteen years and brings a wealth of knowledge to our team.  In addition to being a great guide Bill is also a wonderful cook and experienced horseman.  During the off season Bill runs his heavy duty mechanic business and spends time in the great outdoors with his family.  We are looking forward to his son joining us in the future as a junior sheep guide with his dad!    

Kristin Peasley

Kristin is our kick-ass cook at the main moose camp.  She prepares amazing hearty meals every day and makes sure that everyone gets plenty of food, we are pretty sure that most of the crew came out heavier than they went in!  Kristin doesn't love to paint, but when she does get bribed into panting cabins she sure does a great job.  Her trusty sidekick Gizmo joins her on the hunts and can usually be found by the woodstove keeping warm.  During the off season Kristen and her husband run winter cat hunts. 

Jim Peterson

Guide Outfitter Jim Peterson has been in the industry since 2003. Jim has had an interest in mountain horses from an early age and began working for Ben Ridennoure at the age of fifteen. He would spend his summers working on Ben’s ranch learning how to work with horses. Jim began his career as a bareback rider at the same time and travelled western Canada and the United States competing. In 2002 Fletcher Day asked Jim to work on his string of mountain horses with him. This was the start of their lifelong friendship. In 2003 Jim began guiding for Fletcher. Throughout the years they worked together closely. When Fletcher decided it was time to retire in 2007 he offered the hunting area to Jim. Jim’s first season as Guide Outfitter was in 2008 and he has been running a first class operation since.

Bill Vantunen

Bill is another excellent member of our team.  His love of the outdoors and hunting combined with his cheerful, easygoing nature make him a great addition to our guiding family!  Bill is a hard worker who is wonderful with the horses and always makes sure that they are well looked after so that they can in turn take great care of their riders while out hunting for trophy animals!  In the off season Bill spends a lot of time working on his his horses and his garden.
