If you've never been on a guided
hunt in the rut, you
had better give it a try. Whether it is from a boat

Bulls are establishing dominance and are herding up their cow.
The rut continues threw the whole month of September. Hunting
methods vary a little but can be excellent for the whole month.
Canadian Elk are found in many

produces elk right at timber line. The majority of our
Canadian mountains do not exceed 7000 feet and timberline
is between 4500 to 5500. Once you move out of the mountains

banks are great places to find rut activity.

better. This is a reasonable goal for our hunter with the
possibility at a 350 class bull.
