About hunting in North America
North America has some of the greatest hunting and some of the finest game animals found anywhere in the world. Hunting opportunities in North America are tremendous and vary greatly from whitetail hunting in Eastern hardwood forests to elk hunting in high alpine meadows of the Rocky Mountains to mule deer in the deserts of Sonora to muskox in the Canadian Arctic. The success of North America’s wildlife management is attributed to the “North American Model of Wildlife Conservation,” which relies on money generated by hunters, through licenses and a surcharge on the purchase of hunting gear, for the funding required to conserve and maintain game animals. Under this model, game animals in North America have made a tremendous comeback over the past century and thrive throughout the continent in record numbers today. Because hunting in North America is managed at the state and provincial level, hunting methods, traditions, ethics, and laws are different from one region to another. For example, black bears may be legally hunted over bait in some states and provinces, are hunted with dogs in others, and can be legally taken only by spot-and-stalk in others. It’s crucial to study the laws and regulations of the state or province you are hunting in. Wildlife agencies in each state and province generally have excellent, detailed websites where the information may be found.

Upland Tower Shoots United States
Upland tower shoots are a load of fun. If you haven’t experienced an outing like this before, you’ll be in for a real treat. The shoot is conducted in an open field environment. Pheasant or mallard ducks are released, depending upon your preference, from a tower. The launch area is surrounded by 12 shooting butts. These butts are positioned 60-90 yards away from the release point. Depending on the size of the shoot, hunters will rotate every couple of birds to let each participant experience every position and to allow our retrievers to bring in your birds. We provide refreshments during all of our upland tower shoots and a break is taken during the halfway point to allow hunters to restock ammo and enjoy some refreshments. Tower shoots are great for hunters of all skill levels and perfect for corporate parties. NO LICENSE IS REQUIRED. Throughout the season, Elite Long Island Outfitter hosts upland tower shoots that anyone can join. Ammunition Requirements: Shotshell restrictions: 2 3/4" shotshells ONLY (3 & 3 1/2 shotshells are prohibited). No shot larger than #6 lead for pheasant ONLY shoots. No shot larger than #4 steel for combination shoots. Lead shotshells are prohibited at combination shoots. Proper sized ammo will be available for purchase at The Lodge if needed. Tower Shoot Rules: Shooters may not work their dogs from butts. All dog handlers will be provided through Elite for retrieving needs. Shooters must remain inside butts at all times while birds are being thrown. Shooters are prohibited from shooting outside of butts, and while walking between butts during breaks. Arrive 8:30 am. 10 birds released per person. Minimum 10 shooters - Maximum Shooters BLAZE ORANGE: We require ALL HUNTERS to wear either blaze orange hats or vests and protective eye wear.

Vancouver Island Black Bear Hunt 2x1 Canada
For over 30 years Vancouver Island has been THE destination for black bear hunters. Ursus americanus vancouveri, Vancouver Island’s cave bear, inhabit the Island in great numbers. Jet black in colour, some with a chest splash of white, with big blocky heads and giant paws, these Vancouver Island bears have many features that set them apart from their North American mainland cousins. Bears are pursued on coastal estuaries, mountain side hills and salmon streams, depending on the time of year and weather conditions. All hunts are spot and stalk, no baiting is allowed. Hunters traditionally see 5 to 10 bears per day and occasionally more. We aim to harvest mature boars 6 foot or larger and weighing 250 to 350 lbs. The average shot is 25 to 125 yards and we recommend a heavy bullet in a .30 caliber or larger cartridge.
