First, let's look at their elk hunts, as the quality of the elk hunting in the far north is a hot topic these days. Over the last decade, the population of elk in BC has exploded in areas where, historically, there were few. Today, the six-point or better rule imposed in Tracks BC's area has produced some great hunting.
Tracks BC has been offering elk hunts on the river systems in their area for only the last three years. During that time they have produced bulls for over 80 percent of their clients, and although their average bull will score in the 310- to 320-point range, their biggest bull scored 348 points. One reason for their success is that they only hunt two weeks of the season during the peak of the rut in mid-September. Hunts are conducted from either horseback or from a boat on the rivers. Clients typically stay in wall tent camps on this hunt but may stay in cabins, depending on where they are hunting. This seven-day hunt is conducted on a 1 x 1 basis at a price of $7,000. Not included in this price is the six percent GST tax (approximately $420 US), the hunting license and tag (approximately $414), plus the government royalty fee of $125 due after the kill, as well as the outfitter association levy of $125. Clients fly into Ft. St. John, and shuttle service is provided to camp.
Next, I found their wolf hunt very interesting. Throughout the north, this animal is most often taken as an incidental trophy on a hunt, frankly because most outfitters don't have much success in hunting them.........(continued)
