3 thrilling Canadian fishing and hunting getaways for fall


Check out Ontario’s spectacular steelhead, Vancouver Island elk and Alberta’s upland action


Expect to cover plenty of kilometres as you spot and stalk along wooded valley bottoms and alpine meadows for Vancouver Island’s Roosevelt elk, but persistence can pay off with a book-qualifying bull with heavy, gnarly antlers. These are big, tough animals so well-constructed bullets in calibres ranging from .300 to .375 are recommended. Contact Vancouver Island Guide Outfitters to arrange a hunt.
