#1 Alberta Rifle Elk in 2006
2006 Elk Hunt
If you want the "Hunt of a Lifetime,"
Rick and Rita provide the best of everything from quarters, to food
and guides... not to mention an abundance of outstanding game!!
In 2006, I hunted with them for the second time and filled elk,
moose, and mule deer tags. In 2004, I got a beautiful 43" moose
also. My latest hunt filled my freezer with over 550 lbs of meat,
and I also gave some away to my guide, Mel Hagen (The very best
Elk guide in Alberta).
On the second day of my hunt, Mel put us on elk. He spotted 6 cows
and 4 calves coming up from a from a river bottom to a clear cut
area ....and sure enough, the big herd bull was behind them about
75yds. The bull bugled twice to let the world know he was there
and slowly followed the cows. We crawled about 50 yds to close the
distance to just over 200 yds from the bull, and the rest is history.
My beautiful 6 X 6 bull scoring, a nice 308, was one of the largest
taken in the past 2-3 years. The camp had 7 other moose hunters,
and we all (8) filled tags with great bulls, the largest measured
about 53". I also picked up a nice 4 x 4 mule deer that weighed
about 220 pounds field dressed. During the hunt, I saw 10 Black
Bears, 4 of which I could have shot, but had no bear tag. One was
a big sow with 3 cubs... what a delight to watch them feed and play.
Hunts with Wild Kakwa are absolutely first class, as evidenced by
the need to book 2-3 years in advance to get the tags and dates
you want, but it is well worth the wait!! I can vouch for that.
I am most proud to serve as a reference for this great outfitter,
and would answer any questions you might have. WELL DONE!!!
