Andrew James was my first elk hunter of the season, and he set the bar quite high for the rest of my guests to try and beat. The weather was hot, and the smoke from the forest fires to the north of us kept visibility limited. We did manage to locate a group of nice bulls on the afternoon of the second day, and Andrew was able to thread a shot through the thick bush and knocked down a gorgeous 440" bull! Way to go Andrew, great job. A note to the rest of my elk hunting guests coming, there is far more bulls out there like this one . . . .
Bigelow Family started our season with 10 kills in 3 days. 4 Rams, 4 Turkeys, one Watusi Bull, and one huge wild boar. Scott, Chelsey, Audie, and Cindy were a blast to hunt with, and there was no shortage of arrows sent, and bullets blasted. Scott made the killf the week by arrowing the pending world record Corsican at 42", congrats Scott! Enjoy the photos!
The heat was more than we would have liked and the harvest on Mosquito's was out of this world, but they are getting less and less with each day. I am very excited about the elk harvests coming up as there is some amazing huge bulls out there and we are extending some super low upgrade rates to our booked guests.
Don't forget to check out our DISCOUNTED HUNTS page and then checkout the AVALIABLE DATES, then please call me, we are motivated to sell out.
Happy Hunting, Steve Rahn 250-459-7772 email@example.com
Our 2014 season is almost here, and I just wanted to write something in my BLOG before I get too busy guiding and pre-season set-up. From what we are seeing 2014 is shaping up to be one of our BEST seasons EVER, as our Bull elk herd and Whitetail herd is growing antlers like stink, never seen them this advanced in antler growth before. Our 2013 average Ranch Elk was 396", and from everything I am seeing of our bulls, 2014 will be right up there, so if you are waiting for the PERFECT year for MAXIMUM antler size and PERFECT Price to meet, 2015 IS YOUR YEAR!! I can not stress that enough, our guests are going to be spoiled. For those of you that have not noticed yet our late season elk and Whitetail hunts are now ON SALE to fill the last few spots, and will remain on sale until they are filled, so first come first serve, when they are gone...they are gone. I just also want to mention that this is the year if you want to take a KID hunting (18 and under), as I will extend a great rate to you if one comes with a paying adult, just ask, and we can customize a hunt for any family!
I am really looking forward to hunting with you all, and after August 1st, if you try and get a hold of me through email and I do not reply right away, I am sorry, but I am guiding, and will only be checking my emails once every 3 days, and I promise I will get back to you!
The HOTTEST New Exotic Wild Sheep is now available to hunters in Canada . . . URIALS!This Wild Mountain Sheep from Western Asia is without doubt, one of the most handsome of all wild sheep in the world. With its wide arcing horns, red and black coat, white belly, with his long flowing black and white ruff or "Neck Manes", is a result of the fact that we are the furthest northern exotic hunt ranch in North America. All these features, and the body size of an Alaskan Dall, weighing in at over 200 lbs! To truly appreciate how Regal this ram is, you have to come and see our sheep for yourself, but better yet prepare yourself for a real Hunt, as the Urials are WILD, almost Crazy Wild . . . WOW what a Hunt!
As of 2013 we started to offer Urial Sheep Hunts on a Limited Basis, and the interest has been crazy, just like the sheep! PLUS WE ARE THE BEST DEAL ANYWHERE IN NORTH AMERICA! Ya right you say...check it out for yourself on the internet, and then check out our prices on rams in the 25-35" range, WE ARE THE BEST DEAL! Why are we such a good deal, well we grow them ourselves and our input costs are very minimal, so I pass on the savings to you, our guests!
Please take the time to check out our URIAL HUNTING PAGE and if this hunt is of interest to you we would love to put you on our waiting list!

Well the 2013 Season has came to an end, and it was a great year again! Silvertine had its busiest year yet with close to a hundred guests, and we harvested the largest elk in Canada at 598", plus a 457" Archery Roosevelt Elk, a 20+ year old Bison bull that scored 74", and gosh I should not even start as we harvested so many great quality trophies you will juts have to read our Newsletter posted here on our website for all the juicy details!
Bookings are strong for 2014 and we have not even rounded into the New Year, and I have only been done the season for a month, and we are already almost 50% booked! So if you have been thinking of spoiling yourself in 2014 and tired of looking at that empty spot on your wall where that MASSIVE Elk, Buck, or Exotic trophy is going to hang one day, give me a call and I will put you in front of that bucket list trophy for you.
Also we would like to inform everyone that our CAMPFIRE CLUB is no longer restricted by a password or to booked Guests, now everyone can access the MOUNTAINS of information in there . . . check it out!
We want to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to all our 2012 guests, it was a pleasure to hunt with you all and on behalf of myself, Yogi, and the crew at Silvertine we wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS and happy NEW YEAR!
Just wanted to let you all know that we have TOTALLY re-done our Exotic Hunts website, and that we are now offering over 26 different species of Exotic Game to our hunters in 2013! Being Canada's ONLY Exotic Hunt ranch, we are moving forward with our quest to offer more Exotic Game each year This Year we are doing two more importations from the USA to improve the genetics and species available up here in the North. We hope you enjoy the NEW Website, we are very proud of it! Chaek it out at: www.silvertineexotichunts.com

Its the time of year when my business really gets rolling and our line up of HUGE Bull Elk start to finish off their annual antler growth. We have been very fortunate this year to have just the right amount of rain and sun shine for the bulls to grow to their optimum potential. Having great relations with majority of Canada's elk breeders I have the option of buying many of the "Best" and "BIGGEST" Bull elk before they head south across the border to many of the large scale elk hunt ranches in the USA. That means I have an opportunity to present to you Trophy Rate that are about HALF the price many of the guys in the USA will pay for the EXACT same bull! Take for example the bull in the photo, he will sell in the USA for around $60-70,000, and I can sell him to you for $29,500.00!
Please check out our SUPER BULLS page for recent updates of new bulls, I will update it every morning as I get photos. Also please know these bulls will all be shipped to the USA in August sometime, so if you are interested please do not delay and get in touch with me. These bulls are the best of their species and there is only a precious few around!
I just returned from Saskatchewan last night and had a few really nice days scouting around the Silvertine properties looking for sheds and checking out he Bucks and Bulls as they grow antlers for this falls hunters. Holy cow is all I can say, there is going to be some dandies! I seen some bucks and bulls that should score well into the 400" class and many whitetail bucks of all sizes, and all of them carried great mass and tine length. I expect great things this fall, and some very happy hunters! Saskatchewan has received some good rains this spring and the growth of browse and grass is unreal. The bush is going to be thick, so expect a challenging hunt! I am looking forward to fall . . . .can't wait!
