"Bow Hunting"

Our bow hunting area contains some excellent terrain to help insure your success. In addition, much of the area is restricted to foot access only, providing that extra edge.

Archery Moose hunts during the rut:

In Alberta, the breeding season, or rut, begins in mid-September and runs to through the first week or so of October. Moose sometimes take more than one mate, but usually a bull stays with a particular cow for as long as it will take for the cow to complete her estrus cycle and be bred. The bull will then begin searching for his next girlfriend. 

During the first phase it can be a challenge to lure a bull away from a cow.  It is much easier to get the bull to respond during the second part of the rut when he is actively looking for second mate.

Our archery moose hunts are conducted in late September to early October when the moose are most likely to be actively pursuing a second mate. Our archery hunt takes place in one of Alberta's premier moose areas and  you can be assured that it will be an adventure of a life time.  It is not uncommon the see a large number of moose while on this hunt and P&Y moose are not uncommon.  Harvesting one of these great animals is a test of your skill but the opportunity will be there. 

Whether you are on a stalk or the moose is coming into the call, there is not greater  thrill than to face one of these 2000+ pound animals with only your bow in hand.
