About Us

Canadian Guides & Outfitters

Canadian Guide Outfitters Ltd. is owned and operated by Sean Lingl, a lifetime resident of Vancouver Island located off the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada.

Sean has been in the hunting and guiding business for over 20 years, starting his career with the pioneer of Vancouver Island Bear hunting, the legendary hunting guide "Wayne Wiebe", who at that time owned the guiding rights to most of Vancouver Island, BC.  When the area was split Sean joined the Jim Shockey Hunting Adventure Team and worked with Jim and crew for 15+ years until deciding to take the next step and purchase his own Outfitting business on Vancouver Island. Since then the business has expanded, adding new world class areas for multiple trophy species.

Sean believes that by keeping the number of hunters and hunting trips to a manageable level for the areas, he will consistently be able to offer large mature animals for his guests to harvest. These are the kinds of animals that fill the pages of the trophy books and include Black Bear, Roosevelt Elk, Grizzly Bear, Whitetail deer, Vancouver Island Blacktail deer, Mountain Lion and Wolf.

Canadian Guide Outfitters Ltd. boasts a very high percentage of return guests and we are very proud of that. Unfortunately space is limited, so please give us a call ahead of time to book your hunt of a lifetime, where our guests return as friends.

Canadian Guide Outfitters is a proud member of the Coastal BC Guide Outfitters Association.

Canadian Guide Outfitters was honored to receive the Guide Outfitter Of the Year Award at the Dallas Safari Club 2013 Convention in Dallas TX. This could never have been accomplished without the hard work of our whole team.


Canadian Guides Outfitters offers exclusive rifle- archery and muzzleloader opportunities to hunters around the world. Please Contact Us for more information about all the exciting adventures we offer.
