Our whitetail and mule deer archery hunts are conducted on private farm land conveniently located one hour from the Edmonton International Airport (YEG). Lodge location is on the western edge of WMU 224 in the heart of fabulous deer country, from here we also hunt WMU 332 which is a short 15 minute drive to the west. We offer 6 or 10 day hunts during the new moon phase in September and October. If your looking for a whitetail/mule deer combination hunt we strongly recommend ten days of hunting. Our scouting program is solid and expect opportunities at P&Y class animals. Archery hunt success has been 90% shot opportunity and is dependent on the hunters experience, a guide can only do so much and cannot close the deal for you, target practice is key, and if you follow our advice on being quiet and scent conscious you will reap the rewards.
Whitetail bow hunting in our area is excellent with little resident hunting pressure. You will have an experienced bow hunting guide who knows how to put you on trophy whitetails. I personally guide most of the archery hunts but do occasionally hire one experienced local guide to help. Trophy potential in WMU's 224 and 332 is excellent due to rich farmland with plenty of wooded cover. Whitetails have been averaging 140" as it is hard not to pull the trigger on a P&Y buck! However if your willing to sit with patience, trophy deer of 170"+ are out there and attainable. Tree stands will be used exclusively on deer trails and agricultural plots on private land.
If you enjoy spot and stalk hunting in vast fields of agriculture land, you will love our archery mule deer hunts! Our mule deer hunts have been producing mule deer on average in the 165" class. Resident mule deer hunts were put on draw 4 years ago and our trophy quality has been going up ever since. It is now possible to hang your tag on a 185"+ buck with the occasional 200" class deer in the hunting area! Only taking 4 hunters a year maximum your opportunity is high on a quality buck. Occasionally tree stands will be used for mule deer if they are patternable. Both the whitetail deer bow hunts and mule deer bow hunts can be 6 or 10 days giving the client ample time for an opportunity at a quality buck.
