Elk Hunting Canada

1-4 Guests • Lodge • Public • Guided


North Central BC Hunting

Rocky Mountain elk are very plentiful within our area, and the restrictive 6-point rule ensures quality trophy hunts for big bull elk. The habitat is especially good and the access is challenging, further ensuring our world-class hunts for the magnificent elk.

We hunt elk during the rut, with spot and stalk as well as calling producing the biggest bulls. Our guides know how to call elk!

We use horses, hiking, 4×4’s, boats, and just about any other legal means to ensure the hunt’s success. In addition, our tree stands can increase opportunity and success.

We have a high caliber of elk in our area with some giants going over 400! The average elk will come in the range of 300 to 360. Great cover, habitat, and genetics all play an important role. Here at AlphaDog Outdoors, we take a lot of pride in our elk.

Rules & Guidelines


An honest hunting experience – While hunting with us you can expect that we will always act with you and your experience in mind. We will offer our best efforts to ensure your hunt is a complete success. This is fair chase hunting, not simply shooting, but we understand that your success comes first and then ours follows……..we are not in this to fail:) We book our hunts with the expectation of 100% success on each and every hunt, we do not overbook. Do not expect perfection, now and again the unforeseen will happen and we will always do our very best in every situation. We are not meat cutters or taxidermists but we will help you with your tagged animal, this is something we do to help you but it is not a listed service that we are responsible for.

Professional outfit, comfortable camps, good food, and great people.

A good representative of the species – Our hunting areas have proven over the years to produce record book big game animals, but not on every hunt. We work our hardest to find you the very best representative of the species we have to offer.

British Columbia weather – The weather can play a large factor in the hunt, and BC weather can come and go overnight. We know the critters and how they are affected by changing weather and will continue to do our best even on the worst days.

Memories – At the end of it all, it is all about the memories. With BCO you will always leave with memories that will last a lifetime. We are not simply the typical outfit found anywhere in BC, we are unique and enjoy making memories with the clients we soon call friends.


Come prepared – When you show up to hunt, coming in prepared is important to the overall success of your trip. Mentally, physically, and geared up to hunt hard. Having the right mental attitude and proper gear will help keep you in the game. If you have taken some time to shoot your rifle while at home when you get out here, you’ll be ready to make that 250-yard shot when it counts most (most of our shots will be under 300 yards).

Trust in your guide – Our guides are knowledgeable and friendly, they are there because of their passion for guiding and to help ensure your trip is a complete success. Our guides get almost as much pleasure in your success as you do, they will try to make the right decisions and work with you to ensure a great outcome. Your guided hunt is a team effort

Tip the team – The entire team works very hard. A typical tip runs 10%-15% of the total hunt cost. If there is some reason why you feel a tip is not deserved, then that is something the outfit management should review and resolve.

Relax and have fun – Although finding your animal is our number one priority, our hopes are that your experience with us outweighs the kill. Enjoy your moments with us, we are all here for our love of fair chase hunting.
