- Rifle Hunting Information:
- Alberta whitetail hunting at it’s absolute finest! As Alberta outfitters, we are able to offer spectacular whitetail hunts on our unparalleled expansive grounds. Alberta has some of the biggest, heavy, dark antlered deer in the world. Our area is 85 % forest land (public land) and 15 % farm land (private land). There are over 1 million acres of land in our wildlife management unit, yes that’s right over a million!! This means lots of territory for your guide and outfitter to cover and also lots of habitat for your dream whitetail!
- Hunt locations are selected using a variety of methods including, aerial photos, ground work, and historical knowledge of our area.
- Expect to hunt approximately 8 hours per day in a tripod, ground blind, or tower blind. With these set ups we have the ability to move hunters “if needed”. This is a stand hunt, no driving around, and no pushing bush!
- We use a variety of rattling and calling techniques.
- You will be hunting in the fringe area or deep woods travel corridor set ups that have been through or vigorous scouting programs.
- Our opportunity percentage is 80% and our kill percentage is 60%.
- Average temperatures in rifle season can vary from -40°F to 32°F
- While you are waiting for your trophy, your guide and other guides as well as your outfitter are out scouting and keeping up with deer and deer sign. Make no mistake you are in the right spot.
- Bringing Firearms
A Non-Resident Firearm Declaration Form (CAFC 909) is all you require to bring a firearm into Canada. A bow is not a firearm and requires no forms for entry. Fill out the form in triplicate before arriving, do NOT sign the form until you arrive at customs, where an officer will have to witness the signature and collect a $25.00 CND registration fee. Phone number for the Canadian Firearms Center 1 (800) 731-4000.
- Archery Whitetail Hunting Information
- The hot summer days are coming to an end and the bachelor bucks are still in their groups and following their summer feeding patterns. The early season bow hunts are a conglomeration of hard spring scouting and summer long surveillance in anticipation of hunter arrival.
- Rogue’s archery hunting area is different than the rifle hunting area because archery hunts are mostly conducted on private land with limited use of public land, hovering on the fringe area near the lodge.
- We have approximately 50 stand locations with new expansion every year.
- We only take 4 hunters per hunt.
- This hunt is split into two parts: a morning hunt and an evening hunt with a break in the mid day for lunch and a “siesta.” There are 13.5 hours of daylight in Alberta at this time of year.
- Each hunter will get a “fresh” stand for the duration of their morning set.
- Evening hunts are usually conducted along field edges or funnel points leading to food sources.
- These hunts are based on summer surveillance of bachelor group bucks and historical knowledge of the area and food sources.
- Shot distances of 5 to 60 yards can be expected.
- Archery Moose Hunting Information
- This hunt takes place as the seasons change and the fall colours emerge, the peak times when bull moose consistently respond to the call, the end of September and beginning of October. This time of year has proven to be the time when there is the greatest opportunity for archers to have up close and personal experiences with 1200 pound animals. The crisp, cool Alberta mornings will echo the call making for a truly ultimate archery moose hunting experience
- It is approximately a 30 minute drive from the lodge to the hunt area.
- This hunt is mostly conducted on foot with calling sessions in the morning and afternoon.
- Expect to walk 3 to 5 miles per day.
- This area is all forest land, and has excellent moose habitat.
- We have recently started using treestands to maximize opportunities during non ideal moose hunting conditions.
- Field lunch will be provided.
- Shot distances of 7 to 40 yards can be expected. After a long, hard day of hunting you will come back to a home-cooked meal, hot shower and comfortable bed.
- One of the most exciting thrills of archery hunting is when a bull moose comes crashing in to investigate the call.
- Tyler has teamed up with his long time guide and friend, Al Prokopchuk, to expand this moose operation. They are very experienced and dedicated to ensuring that your moose hunting experience is successful, memorable, and enjoyable.
