For an american resident a guide is required for big game(whitetail, Black bear and moose). In regards to elk only Sask. residents can hunt them at present. As far as the quality of experienceif one could, it would depend on the set up. I know elk hunters who shoot their bull every year without to much effort, places where the elk live in big blocks of bush or even the forest that borders argicultural lands that have very limited access...basically they wait for the elk to come to them. On the other hand the majority of elk hunters here aren't as fortunate and must rely on either luck or ability to find/locate and call. I'm in this bracket and find elk hunting the highlight of my fall quests. I have been fortunate enough to take 7 elk in as many years and been on over dozen where I was a caller, never firing a shot. I like calling them more then I like shooting them..really.

All the elk hunts in Sask are "canned" or fenced operations for non-residents, of which their are plenty of moster elk available if willing to pay the price.[&:]

As far as the wild herd elkthe residents canhunt -300 class is a fine bull, anything higher is very goodanda few B&C bulls aretaken here every year. The biggestI heard of in07' was422" Non Typical. We have some good bulls but the fact only residents can hunt elk in sask. means it isn't even on the map for elk hunting.. Our bulls get heavy hunting pressures as our DNR for years believed in protecting cows and killing bulls. I agree we aren't even close to other areas in terms of quality or opportunity to kill big bull elk. I am fine with that, justfeel lucky to be able to persue them in my home province.

PS might add damn fine on the grill as well
