Hunt southeastern BC in the heart of the Rockies for Rocky Mountain elk. Hunting is by horseback and on foot.

This is one of those rare opportunities to hunt elk during the rut with a rifle. Archery hunts also occur during the early part of the rut. Bulls must have at least 6 points on one side to harvest. Shot opportunity has been approximately 75% on 6×6 or better bulls.

Elk are the primary species on this combo hunt and once your bull is down, the emphasis changes to mule deer. Past clients who have killed their elk early in the hunt, have enjoyed a 70-80% success rate on mule deer. Mule deer must have at least 4 points on one side. Average score is right around 160 B&C with some better.

Black bear can also be harvested at no additional cost, except of the license fee. Black bear numbers are down but there is still a decent chance of seeing some. Color phases include blond, various browns and black.

This is a hunt where a client’s physical condition has a great bearing on his success. The terrain is steep and elevation is 6000 - 9000 feet. Elderly hunters and hunters not in “mountain shape” can be accommodated and can hunt out of stands overlooking meadows.

The main camp can be reached by truck and has multiple cabins, shower house and even a cabin for a couple. Other cabins are reached by horse and are used as needed.

Hunters can fly into Cranbrook, B.C. and be met at the airport or fly into Kalispell, MT., rent a vehicle and drive 2 1/2 hours to meet the outfitter. Another option is to fly into Spokane, WA and drive to meet the outfitter. Airfare at Spokane is usually more affordable.

Private ranch hunt combo hunt for deer and elk. This hunt offered on a very limited basis — only four hunters per week.

A high % of the bulls score from 300-350 B&C with some larger and the mule deer 150-170 B&C with an occasional 180+. Considering that the shot opportunity has been over 90%, this hunt is a great option for the hunter looking to harvest two western trophies on one trip.

Hunting method is primarily glassing and then spot and stalk.

It is recommended that hunters apply for a preference point for elk ($50) during the July 1 - September 30 period. Having the point greatly increases the odds of being drawn. We will assist with applying for the preference point. It is also recommended to allow the outfitter to apply for you in the elk draw. It may take several years to obtain this tag. No preference points are needed to draw the mule deer tag.

Application dates are January 1-31 for elk and Jan. 1 - May 31for deer. Elk licenses are drawn usually drawn around February 22 so a hunter desiring the combo hunt can wait to see if he draws the elk license before applying for deer which is 100% draw odds. The outfitter will also put you in for the deer draw after you draw for elk. A hunter’s safety card is required for rifle hunters if born after January 1, 1966 - not needed for archery hunters. Crossbows are legal to use during archery and firearm season.

Includes meals, lodging, 2 hunters/guide, airport pick-up and drop-off, transportation of meats and mounts to processing plant or taxidermist.
