Our hunting area is about 500,000 acres of farm land, fringe, and the deep woods. The area we hunt makes this a relatively easy hunt and not physically challenging.

The moose are very active this time of year and respond very well to cow calls. The larger bulls usually taken on this hunt average 40 inches. We take a minimum number of hunters per season during this time to keep success rates very high. Our rut moose hunt can also be combined with our fall black bear hunts. for rifle and bow hunters.

We understand that archery hunting requires a different approach than conventional rifle hunts. We hunt mule deer in the morning and whitetail deer only in the afternoons. We live and hunt in this area, so I know and understand the behaviors and patterns of mule deer and whitetail deer. It doesn’t pay to risk getting caught going in the morning to hunt whitetails when you don’t know where they are.
Alberta Mule Deer Bow Hunting Trips
In the morning, we spot and stalk mule deer. Mule deer are usually found in bachelor groups at sunrise. We usually drive county roads or trails looking for mule deer feeding in the morning. Once we find a good group we will get into a good position and watch and wait for a good shot on a trophy buck. This style of hunting has been very exciting and successful.
Afternoon Whitetail Deer Bow Hunts
Since we hunt in an agricultural area, afternoon bow hunting works the best. Early afternoon, whitetails wander out to agricultural fields and food plots to feed. Whitetail are pretty predictable in the early season and often travel in bachelor groups from bedding areas to feeding areas. We set up our stands alongside alfalfa, pea, barley and wheat fields because they are feeding with no pressure.
Early Season Archery Deer Bow Hunts
The early season hunt is all about hunting food sources. The deer feed and bed to put on weight and save energy getting ready for the rut to ramp up. It’s important to know preferred foods are available and when deer seek them out. More mature deer tend to hit food sources later than younger deer so you need to be patient and wait for the trophy deer to come in to feed.
We spend a lot of time scouting and utilize trail cameras to determine trophy bucks early season patterns. We have multiple trail cameras set up to watch times they feed and bed, travel patterns and behavior characteristics. Tracking this movement will give hunters a great chance for a harvest a trophy buck
