ROOSEVELT ELK HUNTS
Top Destination for Roosevelt Elk
Giant stags with Boone and Crockett racks. That’s why Vancouver Island is the top destination for Roosevelt elk. Roosevelt Elk bulls, the Island’s massive 1,000 lbs stags, sport heavy, gnarled antlers, often crowned on top, unlike those found on any other North American elk.
‘Rosies’ are closely managed by wildlife officials to protect the pure genetics and isolation from other elk species, setting them apart from mainland Roosevelt elk.
Record Book Bulls
This close and careful management results in excellent opportunities for Boone and Crocket bulls for our hunters.
The season opens annually on the first week of October, just after the main rut period. Harem bulls continue to guard their herd, or pull the hot cows to protected areas away from competing bulls. All hunts are free range, spot and stalk hunts in logging slashes, timbered creek bottoms and alpine meadows.
Trophy quality is 300+ B&C and shots are 50 to 350 yards. A heavy bullet in .300 to .375 caliber rifle is recommended.
Rate for 1:1 – 10 day all inclusive hunt $25,000 USD + lic/tax
