A good client of ours tipped us off to this fine operation. Since then he has hunted with them 4 times! Well run, excellent quality animals, good people and a far northern game area with no pressure. We think you will like them. They offer good moose, excellent bear and the chance for a wolf. You can do single specie or multi-specie hunts.
MOOSE HUNTS: Moose hunts are one of the most fun and exciting hunts offered in North America especially during the rut season when huge bulls can be called within very close range. Big bulls may approach so quietly that you hardly know they’re close or come charging in like a freight train oblivious to anything in their path! Either way is guaranteed to test your adrenaline level. These folks trophy moose measure on average over 45″ and their success rate is 90% or better. Their moose hunting camps are comfortable wall tents equipped with wood heaters and cots to sleep on and they will serve you some great meals from their camp cook. Camps are set up in remote wilderness areas where there is little pressure from other hunters and lots of prime moose habitat.
You will use ATV’s to get to prime areas and quite often will also spend time walking, sitting and calling. Most of the terrain you will hunt is flat and is not physically demanding. You will hunt logging blocks, lakes, willow flats and cut-lines. Some hunting is done from tree stands over feeding areas or natural salt/mineral licks, if the sign indicates such tactics are worthwhile. Rut hunts are offered from mid-September to the end of October and late season hunts are in November.
BEAR HUNTS: You are hunting far northern Alberta- above even Slave Lake! Big aggressive black bears that have seldom seen a human. Lots of color phase critters too!! These Black Bear hunts are done in several areas of Alberta such as Wildlife Management Units 540 and 542 north of Slave Lake, Alberta. These are remote wilderness areas with little hunting pressure with a good population of bears. There is a two bear limit for each license purchased. Trophy bears will be seen in black and other color phases ranging from blonde to chocolate brown. Their success rate is 100% for the first bear, with most clients who want a second bear also being successful. The usual tactic is to short the first respectable bear you see, then hold out for a color phase or a monster! So success on the second bear is a bit lower, not due to lack of bears, but due to selective hunters.
You will use ATV’s to get to the prime areas for bears and will be placed into tree stands or ground blinds for baited hunts. You may also do some walking for the spot and stalk hunts. The terrain is mostly flat and again it is not physically demanding. Your black bear hunts are done from a comfortable tent camp equipped with wood heaters, cots and great meals provided by the camp cook. Spring or fall baited or spot and stalk bear hunts are sure to provide their fair share of excitement for any hunter. You will be watching a mother bear send her cubs up a tree to safety one moment, and then half an hour later you may be taking aim at a big old boar as he feeds in the bait pile only a few yards from your stand.
This bear hunt takes place in far northern Alberta, north of Slave Lake, about 150 NW of Edmonton by road. This is a two bear hunt, and success is normally 100% on the first bear, and 40% to 70% on the second bear – depending on just how big a bear or what color phase the hunters are waiting for as a second bear. Hunt is 6 full days, 2X1, baited stands, guides, wall tents, cook tent, wash tent all included. Sleep on cots. Comparable two bear hunts are normally a good bit higher, so this is a bargain-this year only at this price! About 40% color phase here- and big seldom hunted bears!
