Super A for elk

Monday, July 7th, 2008

Our hunting party of four guys is at Super A priority for elk this year.

For those who don’t know what in the world I mean by that sentence, a good article explaining the Saskatchewan Big Game Draw system can be found here.

One of the biggest thrills of my life was calling in a bull elk during our 2004 elk hunt. I’ll be thrilled if we are drawn this year, and very disappointed if we’re unsuccessful. I think the draw results should be posted on the Ministry of Environment – Wildlife Branch website sometime this week or next, but I’m impatient so I’ve been checking almost daily. We applied in a wildlife management zone we’ve never hunted before (Fort a la Corne, an “island forest” surrounded by agricultural land between Prince Albert and Nipawin), so if we do get drawn, a scouting trip or two would be a good idea.
