About Us

Vancouver Island, British Columbia is recognized by many hunters from throughout North America, Europe, Canada, and Mexico as a world class hunting destination for some of the finest big game and trophy hunting opportunities in North America.

Located in Sayward (40 minutes north of Campbell River) on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Trophy West Guide Outfitters is proudly owned and operated by the Venus family.

Glenn Venus has been involved in the Guide Outfitting business since the late 1980s. As avid rifle and bow hunters Glenn and his sons, Steve & Geoff, realize that a hunt is about far more than simply harvesting an animal. We are dedicated to providing our BC hunting guests with lasting memories of a total experience that includes rifle or bow hunting in a game rich area, beautiful scenery, great food, comfortable accommodations and high success rates.

With one of the the largest guide areas on Vancouver Island along with an adjoining area, Knight Inlet, on mainland British Columbia, Trophy West has the exclusive guiding rights to a variety of species in this vast game-rich area of BC. This area offers many opportunities unique to the west coast of British Columbia including the famous Knight Inlet and Klinaklini River areas as well as a large portion of the central and north-eastern part of Vancouver Island.
