Elk Hunting in Alberta
This Alberta Elk Hunt is a Sleeper
He only takes two elk hunters a year, and there is a very realistic opportunity for bulls in the 275″ – 325″ B&C range. Success rate has been 100%.
There aren’t many areas where you can hunt elk in the rut with a rifle and an over-the-counter tag. Alberta’s Peace River Region is one of them. This is a small outfit focusing on offering individualized attention, and one of the highest quality elk hunting experiences possible. In October, the rut is still going strong and they have better success on the bigger bulls than during September. This is not a physically demanding hunt. With very few tags available, this hunt has a tremendous success record on good 6 pt bulls. If all that wasn’t good enough for you this is also a rifle rut hunt!
You’ll hunt the first week of October in flat farm fields surrounded by timber (Crown Land), so it is a fairly easy hunt, and the bulls will still be rutting hard. You will drive the farmland with your guide until you find a good bull, then use spot and stalk and/or call a rutting bull into range. If you prefer a hard-core, traditional elk hunt, this hunt is not for you. However, if you want a high odds, fairly easy, laid back hunt with a fun outfitter, we can’t think of a better one.
I have to say this was the best upland bird hunting I have ever experienced. Bud is an honest hardworking outfitter and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Outdoors International.
I’ve been on a lot of hunts over the past years, and can honestly say this was one of my best trips to date! With animals in every direction, the hardest decision was figuring out which Goat we were going after. That is a true rarity these days. I can’t wait to go back to hunt with this outfit!
Just returned from my Alaska mountain goat hunt – great hunt and fantastic group of guides, packers! Got my goat on the second day and I want to thank you for putting me in touch with such top notch, friendly, extremely capable people. Everything was A+ all the way around. Thanks again and I’ll be touch for another hunt.
If you’re looking for a cost effective, DIY, Moose hunt, get ahold of Outdoors International. I’ve never been more appreciative of a company and the knowledge they share to put together this hunt for my dad and I. Thanks for everything!
My elk hunt was fantastic. I have hunted all over the world, but chasing big bugling bull elk in New Mexico was a thrill. The camp and staff were great and the hunting was exciting and memorable. This was a hunt I will never forget and I took a trophy that will help me tell the story for years to come. Outfitter was top notch and so was the hunting.
