TRAVEL & ACCOMMODATION

Before booking with an airline, please check their policies regarding transportation of antlers, meat and hunting gear.


When booking your flight to the city of Calgary please arrive in the morning or early afternoon of the day before your hunt 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 airfare rates through UNIGLOBE Geo Travel (1-877-669-3270) when you mention that you are hunting with Willow Creek Outfitters.

Hotels with airport shuttle service:
Best Western Port O'Call - 1-800-661-1161

During your hunt you will stay at either the home of your outfitter, guide or possibly at a bed & breakfast or motel.

Plastic totes are used to transport your horns, cape and meat. Totes and duck tape are available from the outfitter for a cost of $40.00 US. The meat from the deer you may harvest is your 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. If you need information on who to contact to address this issue, let us know.


GENERAL HUNT INFORMATION
  1. If an animal is mortally wounded and cannot be recovered, this will be considered as a kill.
  2. Hunter orange is not required to be worn while hunting in Alberta.
  3. Bring a good sized daypack to carry extra clothing, lunch, flashlight, and other hunting gear you may need.
  4. 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.
  5. Wind is very prevalent, so warm protection for your head, ears, neck, and hands will be essential.
  6. Another item you may want to bring is a range finder which is handy to take the guesswork out of judging distance.
  7. 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 control.
  8. 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 for years.
