MULE DEER: Big bodied bucks carrying large antlers are an Alberta trademark. Alberta’s reputation for big whitetails is well known, but the mule deer hunting in Alberta is also second to none. Many of our clients will see more true trophy class mule deer bucks on one hunt with this outfit– than they may have seen on all their previous hunting trips elsewhere. Please note- this outfit offers two types of mulie hunts, a Mountain hunt and a Prairie hunt. And it is possible to combo the MOUNTAIN mulie hunts with whitetail, elk, moose or black bear.    

MOUNTAIN MULIE HUNTS: Legally -Two types of mulie hunts- Prairie or Mountain. The Mountain hunts are longer than the 4 day prairie hunts. Prairie hunts are shorter, due to much less cover so the deer are far more visible, easier to take, and where some giant prairie bucks are found. The mountain hunts also produce some huge deer, but you will work a bit harder to find them! However the mountain experience is a grand one!  You can hunt from September into November. In September mulie bucks are in their bachelor groups, and by Nov. both species of deer are rutting; and you can also do a trophy whitetail/mule deer combo hunt. If so inclined you can add on antelope with these hunts, season allowing. Or add on elk, moose, or bear! The October mountain hunt is a timberline high country hunt with great scenery and bucks in their bachelor groups. If you want to combo with whitetail, we suggest you do not start earlier than the last week of October to catch early rut activity. November is rut. On these mountain hunts you can also combo with elk, moose even bear.  The season continues through the rut, to the end of November. For these hunts you will either stay at one the wilderness tent camps or take daily trips from their home with the horses and trailer to one of several trailheads that lead to their trophy deer hotspots. For much of the area, no motorized vehicles are allowed and so access is only on horseback or foot, further limiting hunting pressure and ensuring that mature trophy deer are available year after year.

PRAIRIE MULE DEER HUNTS: The prairie deer hunting season is restricted to four seasons – each of which is a four day season by law, unless you are bow hunting. The rifle hunts take place every Wednesday thru Saturday in November. This is a three-day combination whitetail and mule deer hunt. Although some great whitetails are taken in the prairie zones, those areas are best known for the trophy mule deer, which are the priority on this short hunt. The terrain consists of prairie grassland, grain fields, coulees and river bottoms. You can expect some longer shots on both mule deer and whitetails in this open country. Accommodation can be either ranch house or motel, depending on the exact area you are hunting, transportation is by 4X4 or on foot. Archery spot and stalk is fabulous here- 6 days for only $4500- and you will see the deer of a lifetime- course shooting him is the challenge!! Lic. $275. Expect to glass some monsters up! And you will be into big mulies every day, normally!

Alberta-62-Antelope  ANTELOPE: Many people are surprised to learn that not only does Canada have a good population of pronghorn antelope, but also that southeastern Alberta’s prairie country produces many super trophies every year. Alberta antelope are renowned for exceptional mass. Recent changes in antelope management have allowed more pronghorn bucks to reach maturity, resulting in bigger trophies than ever before being taken. The record book is being re-written nearly every year. They have an outstanding success rate on pronghorn antelope, with an average harvest size of 15″ but with scores that often reach into the 80” range. They offer a 5-day hunt to ensure ample time to look over numerous trophy antelope. The season varies slightly year to year,  between late September to late October.  Can also be comboed with other species. One recent buck scored officially 82 and 2/8ths.

COUGAR: Alberta cougar hunting is truly beyond compare. Not only is Alberta blessed with the largest subspecies of cougar in North America, the largest specimens of this subspecies ever documented have been from here. Add to that, cougars in Alberta occupy habitat that is more accessible than that found in many other places. Therefore, regardless of your physical condition, your odds of success are likely higher in Alberta than anywhere else. This outfitter took a 218-pound cat which scored the highest ever taken in Alberta. The season is December, January and February. During the hunt travel the backcountry using four wheel drive trucks and snowmobiles to locate a suitable track. From there the pursuit will be on foot with hounds. Although the average time to harvest a cougar is 5-6 days, we like our hunters to allow for a 10 day hunt for weather, etc.

Alberta-62-50inch-2011-Shiras-SCI-300x225  ELK & MOOSE: Rifle elk season begins September 17, during the peak of the rut. You hunt the foothill and mountain zone on horseback and on foot, glassing and calling. This is prime bugle time in a limited entry area with a 6 point minimum (on one antler) rule, which ensures that mature trophy bulls are available. This hunt can be scheduled to combine mule deer or black bear, as well. The rifle moose season begins the following week (September 24) and coincides with the peak of the rut. This hunt is conducted in the same area as the Elk and similar hunting methods are used. This hunt can be combined with mule deer, whitetails or black bear. The moose are classified as Shiras moose by Safari Club International and as Canada moose by the Boone & Crockett Club. Although 50″+ moose are not uncommon, we consider 45″ to be a realistic goal for our hunters.

BLACK BEAR: Bear hunts are 6 days in length. They offer both a spring and fall spot and stalk hunt, in an area with a high percentage of color-phase bears. They estimate that half to three quarters of the bears in the area are some color phase other than black, ranging from blonde to chocolate brown. Spring black bear season runs from late April to mid May. You will use  horses to explore newly green trails and meadows where bears like to feed after hibernation. South facing slopes are where spring gets its start, so you will spend time glassing for bears searching for new growth in those spots also. Fall black bear season runs from early September until they den, which is usually early November. The hunting method is much the same as the spring hunt, with the bears feeding primarily on berry covered slopes. A fall bear hunt combines well with mule deer, whitetails, moose or elk. Pronghorn antelope can be added, either before or after a fall bear hunt. Accommodations are ranch house or tent camp as required.

ATTENTION BOW HUNTERS: Enjoy an excellent opportunity for bow hunters with our elk and moose combination hunt. The archery season begins early in September, at the beginning of the elk rut. Therefore, our priority is calling in elk with the added option of spot and stalk moose hunting as well. Towards the end of the archery season the moose begin to respond to calling and can be brought in to close range.
