Commonly Asked Questions

When can I hunt?

Archery season begins September 1st and concludes October 31st.

Rifle season begins November 1st and concludes November 30th.

Will I see many deer?

Since 2008 the Mule deer population has been in good shape. Long cold winters with heavy snowfall may impact populations but has not been a factor in recent years.

How will we go about hunting?

We travel to large, private ranches in pickup trucks. For the most part, all hunts are “Spot and Stalk,” so approach on foot provides the best hunting opportunities.

How important is it that I am physically fit?

Archery hunts require a great deal of walking, so hunters should be prepared for a trek.

While rifle hunts may be less physically demanding, we encourage all hunters be prepared to walk when necessary.

Whitetail hunts are primarily conducted in ground blinds and tree stands.

Do I need to apply for a Draw License?

There is no Draw system. Alberta outfitters are provided with a fixed amount of licensure each year.

Where will I stay during the hunt?

You will be provided with all accommodations within our lodge, which is situated within the hunting area. All of our hunters and guides stay at the lodge.

How many hunters are typically in camp?

Generally, only two or three hunters will be on each hunt. All hunts involve one guide to one hunter unless requested otherwise.
