Re: A semi long range Elk

Ah, I see. You go to BC every year to hunt elk. Does your dad still live there? I assume that since you live in AB now that you need to be hunter hosted to hunt there??

Great bulls though, love the dark antlers.

Cheers

Re: A semi long range Elk

You bet Slope, I head back to BC every year. Is a little different to get hosted in BC. Your host is required to apply for a "Permit to accompany" stating which zones you would like to hunt, species that you would like to hunt, and the duration of the hunt (most your allowed is 21 days). Getting the permit takes about 4-6 weeks, and costs abot $40, and then the license and tag are another $350, and another $125 royalty after pulling the trigger.

Its works out quite well for us with my folks in BC, and myself in AB. I can put my dad in for certain draws here in AB like Mule deer, Elk, Moose, Antelope, and Sheep. So every few years we can hunt elk in BC in Sept, moose in AB during Oct, and wrap it up with a southern AB mule deer/ whitetail hunt.

We are certainly looking forward to getting drawn for elk down in that "special" zone in AB. and one day when he gets drawn for sheep, we will bring our Swat team (horses) and do an all in hunt for some of those giant rams.

I agree, you guys have got it good being able to hunt both provinces!

$125 more with the trigger pull 'eh! That's a good one for the government.
