Wild Kakwa Outfitters Hunting Stories

Mark Thompson, 2006 Elk Hunt

In September of 2006 I had the opportunity to hunt elk with Wild Kakwa Outfitters. This was my first elk hunt. We saw a few elk in the first day of our hunt and heard a few more. The weather tuurned nasty with rain, sleet and snow for the next 6 days of our hunt. Elk activity slowed to nothing. We kept seeing sign and heard an occasional bull bugle, but no opportunities presented themselves. We were kept enteretained by seeing tons of whitetail deer, mulies, several moose, and a B&C black bear. Monster size bear and wolf tracks kept us on our toes at all times.

On the last day of our hunt, the weather broke and we found ourselves in the middle of a dozen rut crazed bulls, all well withing 100 yards. The bugles were coming from every direction. After 20 minutes of nerve racking exctiement, my "Unique Trophy" stepped into view and I harvested my first elk at 50 yards. The entire group of hunters and guides from campe helped us pack the animal out.

The lodging was very nice for being this far out in the wolderness, the food was excellent, coffee was always hot and we always had tons of soda, cookeis and cake. Rick, Rita and the rest of the family and guide service bent over backwards to make sure I had a great time. This is one OUTSTANDING outfitter, that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a Canadian adventure. I cannot wait for a return trip.
