If you’ve never been on a guided British Columbia elk hunt in
the rut, you had better give
it a try. Whether it is from a boat drifting down a river or from
a mountain top on horseback, hunting bugling bulls is an amazing
experience with great rewards. ElkSeason
opens September 1 and the hunting is excellent right from the
beginning. The elk are already starting to rut. Bull elk are
establishing dominance and are herding up their cows. The rut
continues through the whole month of September. Methods may vary
but hunting can be excellent for the whole month. Elk are found in
many different parts of our area. A good portion of our area
produces elk right at timberline. The majority of the British Columbia mountains
in our area do not exceed 7000 feet and timberline is between 4500
to 5500. Once you move out of the mountains into the foothills,
pine ridges, south facing slopes, and river banks are all great
places to find rut activity.
If you are in fair physical condition and get motivated by bugling bull elk
we can take you on an exciting outfitted adventure.
Columbia hunting regulations require that elk in our area have 6
points on one side before they can be harvested. This rule has
insured and will insure that we maintain excellent trophy elk. As
British Columbia outfitters we strive to harvest bulls in that 300
B+C class or better. This is a reasonable goal for our hunter with
the possibility at a 350 class bull.
