Hunting Trips for Whitetail Deer, Timber Wolf, Moose and Elk in Alberta, Canada
Located near Grande Prairie, Alberta, Alpine Outfitters is a professional, licensed outfitting company that prides itself on good, honest service, great hospitality, and repeat clients. As professional outfitters, we want you to experience a relaxing, enjoyable hunt in a beautiful location with great game and good people. Our goal is that our clients become friends, and return to hunt with us year after year.
Our hunting area is a mix of private and public hunting land in the foothills of Alberta, where rising ridges of pine and poplar meet the Rocky Mountains.
Alberta Wolf Hunting Outfitters
We have been guiding wolf hunts since 1996. In wolf hunting, it is vital that the guide have an intimate understanding of the area, as well as know the travel habits of the various wolf packs. For these reasons, hunts are conducted from our home in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains – an area where we grew up and have hunted wolves for 25 years.
We offer winter wolf hunts in northwestern Alberta. Our six-day wolf hunts run from January to March each year. During that time, we have been consistently successful in providing our hunters with opportunities to harvest wolves and coyotes. Our success rate has been about 60%, with hunters having 75% opportunity to take a wolf.
Adventures while wolf hunting in Alberta, Canada with Alpine Outfitters
Many of the areas we hunt adjoin private ranches where wolves and coyotes regularly prey on cattle. Therefore, the landowners are more than happy to assist us and allow us to operate on their property. There is no limit on the number of wolves or coyotes a hunter may take. All wolves and coyotes taken will be brought back to the lodge for skinning and salting.
The use of logging and oil roads in the area gives us access to large areas of country, even in the deep snows of winter. Wolf hunts take place at baited sites with heated blinds. Tracking and calling of wolf packs is also effective when conditions are favourable.
Wolf Hunting Trips in Alberta
Expect your shots to be 200 yards when sitting in a blind and closer when calling wolves or coyotes. While in your blind, the guides will be out looking for sign and checking the other baits, making sure that all hunters are in the best location to have a successful hunt.
Temperature and snow conditions can vary greatly from year to year, with average snow depth of 16 inches and average temperature of 0 Fahrenheit. With the use of heated blinds, it is possible to hunt comfortably in the cold weather.
Whitetail Deer Hunting in Alberta
Our whitetail deer hunting zone is a mix of agricultural land and forest in Alberta, nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
Prior to your hunt, the area will have been scouted and tree stands and ground blinds put into place. These stands and blinds are primarily located in a forest of deciduous and coniferous trees with many cut-blocks and pipelines.
You can expect to see whitetail deer in the 140-180+ point range. Our goal is to try and harvest bucks 150+ in size.
Alberta Whitetail Deer Bow Hunting
Whitetail deer bow hunts run from August 25th to September 16th. This time of the year the bucks are in their bachelor groups and are very easy to pattern. We can take up to four hunters per week on this 2 on 1 hunt. We’ll be bowhunting the big whitetail deer over grain and alfalfa fields on private land.
Whitetail Deer Rifle Hunting Outfitters in Alberta
The whitetail deer rifle hunts are in November when the bucks are in the rut.
We hunt by calling, rattling, and stand hunting. We hunt close to the doe herds, as the bucks will travel large areas in search of hot does. Because of the lack of hunting pressure and the heat of rut, the bucks will move all day in search of does.
Our hunters hunt all day in order to maximize their hunting time and increase their success rate. We use good equipment and quality stands to ensure our hunters remain warm and comfortable during their deer hunt.
Alberta Moose Hunts November Rut
We take 4 hunters each November for moose, and the hunt can be combined with whitetail deer and wolf. In November of 2017, we killed 4 moose for 4 hunters with multiple opportunities, on bulls. An average of 8 moose were seen each day. Wolf and deer were also seen. The bulls taken ranged from 35 to 48 inches.
Alberta Moose Hunting in Canada with Alpine Outfitters
We hunt moose by driving logging and oil roads and looking at cut blocks for feeding moose. By spotting and stalking we can cover large areas of ground looking for trophy bulls. I have been hunting moose in this area of Alberta since 2001 and have consistently killed 4 of 4 or 3 of 4 bulls each year.
October Rut Moose Hunts in Alberta

We are now offering a 2 on 1 rut moose hunt in October. We hunt by calling and spot-and-stalking. Calling in a bull moose and hearing him come grunting in smashing every tree in his path is a thrill of a lifetime.
Hunt during the Rut (Archery, Rifle Elk/Whitetail Combo)
Our elk hunt is during the start of the rut in the bow season on a mix of government and privately-owned land in the foothills of northern Alberta. This is a six-day hunt in order to have a good chance at getting a good shot at an elk and whitetail.
Alberta Elk Hunting Outfitters
The size of elk we will be looking for is between 250 and 350 pt. 5×5 and 6×6. It is an exciting time to hear the elk bugling and to call them into bow range.
