I'd suggest a Savage model 11FCNS. You get the accutrigger and stock. You also have the selection of .300wsm for caliber (great for just about everything in canada). For inexpensive hunting optics right now I'd suggest the Redfield 3-9X40. Great optics (they are now made by Luepold) and a great price. This combination should be able to take elk sized game out to 400 yards fairly easily and accurately.
