Make your Dream Hunt a reality. We provide excellent opportunities on our trophy black bear, moose, whitetail deer, mule deer, wolf and exciting waterfowl hunts. When you hunt with us you can expect full service, high success and satisfaction and a professional, quality hunting experience.

    We offer trophy rifle and bowhunts for black bear, moose, elk, whitetail deer, mule deer, wolf and waterfowl in Northwest Alberta. You will have excellent hunting opportunities for trophy big game and waterfowl in some of the best hunting areas in Alberta! Because of the mix of forest and farmland, we have a very healthy big game population that is growing each year and thousands of ducks and geese nesting in our area.

WHITETAIL DEER HUNTS:
    Our whitetail deer hunts take place in the part of Alberta which has become known as one of the best areas in North America for massive bucks. The two largest whitetails in Canada (279 6/8 and 285)are from the area we hunt. The area we hunt has farmland but its best feature is the large tracts of forest that gives the bucks cover enough to reach trophy size.



    Most of the hunting is done from stands, but we also still hunt, spot and stalk and push bush. Our repeat clients speak volumes for the quality of deer and our hunting operation. Our longest term client is 15 years and we have others over 10 years. Make Red Willow Outfitters your number one destination for a great Whitetail hunt.



    Make your dream hunt a reality. As an avid hunter myself, I am experienced enough to make your hunt both successful and enjoyable. I enjoy working hard and look forward to providing opportunities for trophy Whitetail Deer.

 

 

MULE DEER HUNTS:
    Red Willow Outfitters offers archery and rifle trophy Mule Deer hunts in Alberta, Canada...

    The Peace River Country has become known as the destination of choice for trophy Mule deer. With a healthy population and unbelievable genetics, hunters have had excellent success hunting with us in Alberta's Peace Country.


Trophy Mule Deer Hunts:
    Our hunting areas in WMU 360 & 351 are farmland and boreal forest areas. The hunting is good from the start of the Archery season in late August right through to the start of the rifle season in mid September and on until the end of November. We take spectacular 180+ Mule Deer each year in this hunting area.

 



Premium Trophy Mule Deer Hunts:
    Our WMU 521 Mule Deer hunt takes place in one of the best areas in North America for trophy Muleys. It is an expensive outfitter allocation and we have taken some great deer there and therefore charge a premium to hunt there. We take some great Mule Deer in the other areas we hunt, but the 521 area has some real monsters and you will have an excellent chance at bringing home a real trophy. We take spectacular Mule Deer each year, even some in the 200's. This tag is booked very quickly, so call early to secure this one.

ELK HUNTS: 
    Because of the ratio of forest and farmland, we have a very healthy elk population that is growing each year. Our elk bowhunts run late August to mid September and then the rifle season opens. The changeover between seasons happens right at the peak of the rut making the elk hunting both successful and enjoyable. The excitement created by a bugling elk is one that is not soon forgotten.

    Our typical elk are 5X5 to 6X6's. Our largest was a 6X8 that scored well over 300". There have been bulls killed in the areas we hunt that are 350" +. Elk hunting has been a very popular with us. Many hunters choose to do a combination hunt. One of the most popular is the Elk/Moose/Black Bear, though we are able to combine elk hunting with any of the species we offer.


BEAR HUNTS
    The Black Bears in our hunting area have been found to be some of the largest in Alberta. The largest black bear ever recorded in Alberta recently came from our hunting area. THREE years in a row, our clients have won the Outfitters award for the largest Black Bear taken by a non-resident hunter. We also have one of the highest percentages of the brown color phase, ranging from a dark chocolate color to pure blonde.


    We offer a variety of back bear hunts. During the spring ( May/June), when the bears are first out of their dens, we hunt both baited and spot and stalk with bow, muzzleloader, or rifle. Their fur at this time is thick and long. Most of the bear hunting occurs over baits, but spot and stalk hunts can be arranged. In the fall (late Aug/Sept) our bear hunts are baited or spot and stalk. At this time the bears are feeding to fatten themselves up for the for a long winters sleep. Their fur is shiny and thick at this time.



    Our bear hunts take place in a two bear limit area, so the opportunity to take two bears is available. This has has allowed us to maintain a kill percentage of about 175%.


MOOSE HUNTS: 
    Moose hunting take place in the world famous Peace River Country. It is known for having one of the highest Moose densities in North America. Our moose hunts have been very popular. Due to the Alberta's management of moose, we have been taking high quality animals each year. Every year we are taking moose in the 50" + range with our largest being 63". We have three different moose hunts to choose from as well as combination hunts for moose with Black Bear, Whitetail, Mule Deer, Waterfowl, and Elk.

Moose bowhunts:
    We hunt in the archery only season from late August to mid September. During this time we concentrate on the prime feeding areas, game trails, natural mineral "licks", and other prime habitat showing fresh Moose activity. This is a very exciting and productive hunt. We normally see more Moose on this hunt than any of the others. Moose are relatively easy to stalk and, of course, are big targets. This makes this hunt very doable. The weather at this time is very pleasant and the days are long. If you want to have the challenge of taking North Americas largest member of the deer family with a bow, give us a call and make your dream a reality.

Rut Moose Hunts:
    Our rut Moose hunts take place in late September to mid October. During this time the moose are in the peak of the rut. We call them in making relatively easy shots. Hearing their deep grunt as they respond is every bit as exciting as the bugle of a bull elk. This hunt can be done with bow or rifle and both are highly successful. Our success on this hunt is consistently 85% + on kills and of course opportunity is almost always 100%.

November Post Rut Moose Hunts:
    At this time we hunt moose by spot and stalk. The moose are feeding more in the open at this time. The lack of leaves and the presence of snow make them easier to spot and locate. We see a lot of Moose on this hunt. this hunt can be done with rifle or bow, but leans itself more towards a rifle hunt. In the past few years we have killed our biggest bulls on this hunt. The kill percentage is similar to the rut hunt, 85-90%.

Our moose hunts are high quality and we take big bulls on all of them.

WOLF HUNTS: 
    Our wolf hunts run from December 1 - March 15 as this is the best time of year to hunt these predators. We use bait, spot and stalk, and calling. At this time of the year there is snow so we travel by snowmobile while hunting. We expect kill percentages at about 50%. Because wolves in our hunting area have drastically increased and there is such an abundance of wolves and coyotes there is no limit on the number of wolves you can take.

 
    Alberta wolf hunts can be very rewarding with an excellent opportunity to take more than one wolf and a bunch of coyotes. Wolves are quite variable in color. The wolves in our hunting area tend to be a mix, black to white with many tones of grey. The mature wolves from this area have skulls in the 17-18" range and can weigh well over 100lbs. These ultimate predators makes a great trophy.


    Timber wolves are a prized trophy and are by nature, extremely elusive. If you want a great hunt at one of North Americas most challenging trophies give us a call and we will help make your dream a reality.

WATERFOWL HUNTS
    Waterfowl hunting takes place in the farmland of Northern Alberta. A typical day of hunting involves a morning Goose & Duck hunt in the grain fields. The afternoon and evenings can be used up hunting Grouse in the woods or Ducks on small ponds and lakes. Occasionally we'll do an evening field hunt as well.

    Alberta has generous limits and that gives us opportunity for lots of action. Our Geese are primarily Greater Canada's, but we do have some Speckle Bellies and some Snows. Our lodge is located on the Little Smoky River and it affords some great Walleye and Northern fishing.


    Make your dream hunt a reality. As an avid hunter myself, I am experienced enough to make your hunt both successful and enjoyable. I enjoy working hard and look forward to providing opportunities for fantastic Waterfowl hunts.
