Elk Hunting Story

Opening Day Magic

By Brett Marciasini
It was a cool and crisp September morning in the East Kootenays of British Columbia. For the first time in my life, I was searching for a bull elk with a tag in my pocket and a rifle in my hand. As a native of California, it is extremely rare to see an elk in the wild; so seeing a large bull elk would be a very special experience.

Mountain Goat Hunting Story

Cliff Dwellers

By Lonnie Cook
Mountain hunters, when speaking about their quest for the American mountain goat, often exclaim, “Goat hunting starts where sheep hunting ends.” This oft-repeated quote refers to the elevations that goats inhabit versus sheep. My sheep hunt with Stone Mountain Safaris ended with the harvesting of a nice Stone ram half-way through my fourteen-day hunt.

Moose Hunt Story

Moose Quest from New Zealand

By Andrew Hawke
My fascination with moose started many years ago. After an unsuccessful release of moose in New Zealand in 1900, a further mixed group of ten moose were gifted to New Zealand by the Canadian government and released in Fiordland, one of the most remote areas of my home country.
