Hunts for Mule Deer, Whitetail Deer and Pronghorn Antelope

Alberta hunt imageIf you’re after record book Mule Deer, Whitetail Deer or Pronghorn Antelope then Southern Alberta is the destination for you.

We have been fortunate to work with a small-scale outfitter who has been getting exceptional results year after year on all 3 species. Bow hunters are welcome to take the challenge on any of these species and in fact enjoy a great success rate; especially antelope bow hunts during the rut are running at 99% on book-sized trophies.

Also early season mule deer bow hunts are achieving the same success rates on trophy book bucks. If you finish your hunt early small game can be hunted for the duration of your booked dates at no extra cost.

Hunting Method

Spot and stalk is the preferred method of hunting, you won’t be stuck up a tree stand all day waiting for game to come to bait! As you are hunting on private land and the harvest is strictly regulated, numbers of game are abundant and you can see up to 300 deer a day.

Decoying and calling are also used for the Antelope bow hunts, imagine the adrenalin surge when a good buck antelope comes at 40 mph full charge then stops at 30 yards in front of your bow!

  1. Fly into Lethbridge Alberta and your guide will pick you up and return you at the end of the hunt Cost US$250.
