Our six day rifle deer hunts are conducted commencing September 17 and run through to the rut in mid November. Call or email for actual hunt dates.
Deer hunting the foothills in September and October allows us to capitalize on the stable nature of the herd and the docile consistent feeding habits of these mature virtually unhunted bucks. We can target specific bucks we have carefully scouted as they are not on the move nearly as much as they are during the rut. November 18 is peak estrus at our latitude. During this time the dominant bucks must travel the heavily wooded terrain continually to contact estrus does. This make the wisest and oldest of bucks vulnerable to our method of hunting. We hunt from portable, yet heated, tower blinds at known crossings and travel routes.
Archery Velvet Antler* Hunts – 6 Day Hunt Packages available. Call or email for Package Pricing
*Velvet can be peeled at this time of year to expose beautiful hardened antlers.
Our six day archery hunts are from August 25 – 30.
Archery Velvet Antler Hunts are conducted in late August whereby we can take advantage of the relaxed summer feed pattern the big bucks are in. It gives me and the guides the opportunity to monitor trail cameras throughout the summer and keep an eye on antler growth. This allows us to select particular bucks to hunt without having to worry about changing feed patterns or about them leaving their home ranges in search of does.
The cost of your deer hunting license is approximately $370 US. Your license will be pre-purchased and awaiting your arrival at the deer camp.
Your trophy deer hunt commences in Edmonton. From here you will be given directions to our secretly kept location and make the three hour drive west to our hunting area. Due to the varied length of deer hunts because of tagging out and heading home, deer hunters be responsible for getting to and from the deer camp on their own which approximately 3 hours west of Edmonton. Directions will be provided after a contract has been signed.
