commences. Departures should be made for the day after your
hunt ends. The outfitter will provide transportation to and
from Calgary International Airport and the hunting area. You
will be returned to your hotel in Calgary in the afternoon of
the last day of your hunt. The client will be responsible for
the cost of the hotel room. You can get exclusive wholesale

responsibility. If you decide to leave it behind we ask that
you cover the cost of the processing in preparation for donation.
You will need a valid passport if you are flying into Canada.
It is your responsibility to make sure you will not be denied
access into Canada. Refused entry by Canada Customs is not sufficient
reason for a hunt refund. Past criminal records and D.U.I. charges
will have to be confronted months before the hunt commences.

GENERAL HUNT INFORMATION
- If an animal is mortally wounded and cannot be recovered,
this will be considered as a kill.
- Hunter orange is not required to be worn while hunting in Alberta.
- Bring a good sized daypack to carry extra clothing, lunch, flashlight,
and other hunting gear you may need.
- If you do not already own a pair, consider getting a quality
pair of binoculars. These will be priceless since a lot of glassing
is required in this wide-open country.
- Wind is very prevalent, so warm protection for your head, ears,
neck, and hands will be essential.
- Another item you may want to bring is a range finder which is
handy to take the guesswork out of judging distance.
- Quite often clients will ask about tipping guides. Gratuities
should be based on the effort your guide puts into your hunt,
not if you get an animal or how big your animal is. The average
going rate in the industry is about 10% of the hunt cost. Gratuities
are a good portion of a guide's income. So if your guide takes
care of you and tries hard to get you the trophy you are looking
for, let him know at the end of the hunt that their efforts and
skills were appreciated. Remember this is fair chase hunting and
weather conditions and animal activity are out of your guide's
- The majority of the mule deer hunts are done on foot. The better physical condition you are in, the more country we can cover. This will increase your odds at getting a good opportunity at the trophy you are looking for.
RIFLE HUNT INFORMATION
Temperatures may vary from 15 - 60º F. Bring
clothing that will keep you comfortable in any situation, preferably
quiet fabrics like wool or fleece that can be used in a layer system.
A good pair of leather hiking boots is a must. The terrain is very
hilly so you will need good ankle and foot support. It would be a
good idea to also bring warmer felt lined boots in the event we receive
snow or cold temperatures, these should be able to handle some hiking
as well. Hot packs to put in gloves and boots make sitting much more
comfortable when temperatures drop.
We recommend that you bring a couple boxes of ammunition in case your
scope is in need of adjustment before or during your hunt. And last
of all, collapsible shooting sticks have proven themselves in helping
to steady your rifle when a longer shot is required. Please take the
time to practice at distances out to and beyond 300 yards. These are
just a few items that will make your hunt more comfortable.
You will need to register your firearm with Canada Customs when you
arrive. To speed up the process you will need to complete the firearms
declaration form in triplicate. Click here to open the form in PDF format you may complete the form online and print three copies. Do NOT sign until you reach Canada Customs.
ARCHERY HUNT INFORMATION
Temperatures throughout this month may vary from 30 - 90º
F. Bring clothing that will keep you comfortable in any situation,
preferably quiet fabrics like wool or fleece or cotton. We recommend
camo patterns like Open Country, Prairie Ghost, or Desert Shadow
to conceal you the best in this country. A good pair of leather
hiking boots is a must. The terrain can be very hilly so you
will need good ankle and foot support. Also bring an extra release
in the event one is misplaced or lost. These are just a few
items that will make your hunt more comfortable.
Regarding equipment, here are a few recommendations we would
like to see our clients use on this hunt. The best type of quiver
is a detachable one that can hold at least 4 arrows, no hip
quivers. We recommend using a fix blade broadhead, like a Muzzy
100 and a 4 or 5 pin sight, no pendulum style sights. The best
type of rest to use is a Whisker Biscuit, it keeps the nocked
arrow in position at all times while stalking.
We will provide a target for you to practice shooting during
the hunt. Please practice shooting at ranges of 40 yards or
more, as there is a good possibility we may only get a long
range opportunity in certain situations. If you hit an animal
with an arrow, this will be considered your animal, no exceptions.
We thank you again for choosing to hunt with us and look forward to
providing you with an enjoyable, quality hunt that will be remembered
