I am interested in going on a elk hunt in British Columbia and going with a hunting buddy of mine. I am not sure what to expect with 2-1 Guide hunt. Can some explain how it works? Are booth hunters hunting each day or is it one kills first and then you hope that the other gets a shot later in the hunt?

Any help is greatly appreciated! It is a expensive trip to go on and just not sure what to expect!

Thanks

On hunts where I have went that were 2 on 1 guide, we both hunted at the same time. One of us had first choice and if that person did not want to kill that animal then he passed it to the other hunter. I would much rather do a hunt that is 1 on 1 though.

Thanks for the info..I would rather do the 1 0n 1 also but the price difference would make it difficult for both of us

My experience on a 2x1 was me and my buddy traded days. One day I had first choice then the next he did.
Sometimes it can work well especially when we saw 2 shooter bulls running together. Most importantly we had a blast even if we both did not connect because one friends success was also the others.

The amount days the hunt is for will play into how I would feel about 2 on 1 and the price.

we are doing a 7 day hunt for about $5,000.00 each. We also are looking at buying tags for bear, white tail, mule dear and wolf just in case we see something worth shooting

+1.

2x1 has much less effect on very game-rich hunts (Africa, caribou, pronghorn, etc.) and much more effect when game is tougher to come by.

You would need to ask your guide on his hunting methods. He may allow both to hunt at the same time. One could hunt a large clearing while the other goes with the guide to a different area. Most of the time one person is the shooter for one day then the next day would be yours. Which really just sucks because you may be on a 7 day hunt and only hunt two or three times that week.

It all depends on what is agreed to by the two hunter and the guide. For example you may both go out with the guide and one hunter has the first choice to shoot or not..if he decides not to shoot the other hunter can shoot. Then the roles get reversed. Bottom line it's up to what you and the guide agree on.

If your going all the way there I recommend getting a one on one guide. In my opinion your already spending quit a bit to go so don't cut corners. Unless you can't get a one on one guide.

Archery or rifle?

Archery it works pretty well, because you can cover more area, and caller/guide can get further back

If the price is right and its a Target Rich environment, would bet your fine. I would prefer one on one but make the best of it be safe and have a blast. up

A lot of it has to do with the hunt, who you are with, what you are there for.

With my daughters, I am mostly along for the ride. 2x1 is preferred because I want to be with them. Same with being with my buddies on more "social" hunts (pronghorn, caribou, etc.).

Some hunts are "lone wolf". Not because I don't want to see my buddies do well-but because I want to give all of us a better chance to do well. I am not going to spend beaucoup $$ on a sheep/goal/grizzly hunt and not make the very most of limited hunting time-or ask my buddy to do so either. So it's always 1 on 1 for those OIL hunts. I have packed in with a buddy for elk-but we each hunted alone from camp. There is plenty of "buddy" time during travel, pack-in, and at camp.

Elk hunting can fit either category, depending on your desires and/or the game availability where you are hunting. It's a personal thing.

Good luck! You will have a great time however you choose to do it.
