The Roosevelt elk is the largest bodied elk in North America and is a required species for one to accomplish the Super Slam of North American Big-Game. It is also one of the most difficult species to obtain. Their core range includes the temperate rainforests of the Pacific Northwest, but they are also found on Kodiak Alaska’s Afognak and Raspberry Islands.
WTA TAGS offers application services for Alaska’s Roosevelt elk, and if drawn, our outfitter offers a yacht-based, first class adventure. Your odds of drawing this amazing tag are typically better than 1-in-10, and if drawn, this six day fully guided hunt will run $18,000. This is about $10K less than many of the hunts found in mainland, British Columbia or on Vancouver Island. Success rates are excellent for those prepared both physically and mentally. The terrain is steep and the weather; well it’s Alaska, it could be absolutely beautiful or a raging torrent. Two things are certain though: #1 – coming back to a 65 foot yacht, after a long day afield, makes for nicer accommodations, and this outfitter will do his level best to make sure your chances of success are maximized.
Whether you are trying to pursue your North American 29 or just want to experience one of the great adventures in big game hunting – boat based hunting in Alaska – then consider applying for this tag today. Again, with reasonable odds of drawing, you should eventually be able to obtain this awesome tag.
