British Columbia – Outfitter #048
The Roosevelt Elk was named in honor of President and conservationist Teddy Roosevelt.
The impressive 900lb+ Roosevelt Elk bull is known for its unique Royal Crown, a clustered goblet at the top of the antler, making it a much envied trophy for big game hunters worldwide.
These Vancouver Island Elk hunts start on October 10 to coincide with the annual rut. Their hunting method is spot and stalk, using logging roads and clear-cuts as access to the Elk herds. When bull Elk are located, the hunter and guide develop a game plan to stalk and bring them into shooting range. The 2000s have seen Vancouver Island’s elk herds at an all-time high, with most hunters taking Boone and Crockett bulls! The #1 Boone and Crockett and the #1 Safari Club International Roosevelt Elk have both been taken from Vancouver Island, BC, Canada in recent years. Actually, one of their hunter’s took the new world record muzzleloader Roosevelt Elk, and another one took the #3 all-time Boone and Crockett bull, both with this outfitter on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Another client of this outfitter took the largest Roosevelt Elk in North America for 2003 with and this will most likely stand as the 4th largest elk ever taken. In 2005, another client also took a Boone & Crockettt Roosevelt Elk with his bow that will most likely stand as the 4th largest Elk ever taken with a bow.
