Hofland - 2001 Elk Hunt
have hunted three times with Wild Kakwa Outfitters. Each hunt
has been different and each hunt has been great.
first hunt was for moose. Rick and his friend Jake were the guides
and Rick's wife Rita, was the cook. The food was excellent and
everyone got a moose. I got a 44" bull on the first day and
spent the rest of the time hunting with the other guys and helping
to get the downed moose out of the bush. It was an awesome hunt
and a fun experience.
time I hunted with Wild Kakwa was for elk. Jake was my guide on
this hunt and his enthusiasm kept me going when the weather wouldn't
cooperate and neither would the elk. Our perseverance paid of on
the ninth day when I finally connected with a 5x5 bull.
the third hunt I went after elk and black bear. Rick was my guide
and Rita camp cook. Again, the food was great and they made me
feel right at home. The first morning out we had a bear walk up
to us in the dark, wolves howling around us, and elk bugling.
Rick called in an elk that came close, but the heavy timber kept
us from seeing him. All this before 7:30 A.M. That same afternoon,
luck and Rick's hard work scouting paid off. I got a huge 5x5.
Later that week I got my first black bear and a coyote.
Kakwa has a game rich hunting area and they go the extra mile
to see that all of their hunters feel at home and have a great
experience. Their camps are comfortable and the food excellent.
I look forward to hunting with them again.
