5 Tips For Canadian Elk Hunting
For those of you interested in hunting Canadian elk, you'll need 5 tips for Canadian elk hunting. These tips will assure that you not only have a fun and exciting elk hunting adventure, but you keep things totally safe and legal during the trip to avoid scuffles with the law!
- Make sure you have everything you’re going to need for your Canadian elk hunting trip before you head off. Some of the main items you need to pack include: emergency supplies (medical and otherwise) and enough food to last the entirety of the trip and a few days thereafter or enough money that you can afford to eat everyday if you don’t catch any elk while hunting.
- Always wear an orange or another brightly colored safety vest so you will be visible to other elk hunters. This is one of the most important things you can do to ensure your safety. If you see something dark moving through the woods, your first reaction is that it is elk and you don't want to be mistaken for elk. Keep that in mind when you decide whether or not to wear a vest.
- Be sure to wear plenty of warm clothes. Canadian elk hunting can be a very fun, but it's also very cold business. One of the quickest ways to ruin a trip is to get sick. Keep in mind that if these things don’t bring you down, there’s always a chance, no matter how slight, that you could catch pneumonia while out there if you're not wearing enough warm clothes, which can be lethal if it goes untreated for an extended period of time!
- Never go elk hunting alone. One of the most dangerous things you can do is go elk hunting without a partner who can, at least, help you spot elk. The main reason you want to have somebody with you is just in case there’s an emergency, there can be someone there to help you out.
- While hunting, be sure to take small, easy steps. Taking loud steps gives away your position to the elk, which will make them run away from you!
