We specialize in guided hunts for whitetail deer black bear, moose and elk in Alberta, Canada

Wizard Lake Outfitting is Alberta's most successful archery outfitter!

We live where we hunt and are very fortunate to live in an area rich in wildlife. Our whitetail deer hunts take place in Alberta's central Parkland region, famous for producing world-class whitetail deer. The vast Boreal forest of northern Alberta is where our black bear camp is located, an area that is producing some of the largest black bears in North America. The Aspen mixed wood foothills are abundant with moose and elk and you will have no problem spotting some real trophies on your hunt with us.

Wizard Lake Outfitting provides professional, personalized guided hunts. We are a small operation and take great pride in running a first class hunting outfit. We offer high quality, successful hunts for trophy whitetails, black bear, moose and elk. Our hunting areas are prime spots for trophy big game and both our rifle hunters and bow hunters have had great success hunting with us.

WHITETAIL HUNTS    We specialize in guided whitetail deer bow hunts and rifle whitetail hunts in the remote wilderness of Alberta Canada. Hunt Alberta for Trophy Whitetail Deer with Wizard Lake Outfitting Bow & Rifle Whitetail Hunting Outfitters and Guides.

Whitetail Deer Bow hunts- Early Season:
We offer early season Whitetail bow hunts from September 1st to October 31st. During early season Sept bow hunts bucks are still in bachelor groups and on predictable feeding patterns. Pre-rut bow hunts in late October is when bucks are on scrape lines and susceptible to calling, decoying, and rattling. Your chances of harvesting a trophy buck during this time are as good as during the rut. Whitetail bucks in the 140 - 160" class are common and the big ones are the biggest bucks in the world. Bow hunters on a typical Whitetail hunt can expect at least one opportunity at a P&Y Alberta whitetail buck.

Whitetail Deer Bow hunts- Rut:
Hunt the famous 'Bow-Only' Zone surrounding Alberta's capital city of Edmonton. The Bow zone is arguably the best Whitetail deer bow hunting zone in the world. Located in the Parkland Region of Alberta, the area has been off limits to guns since 1974. The area contains prime Whitetail habitat consisting of aspen woodlots for cover surrounded by agricultural fields for feed. We hunt on private property during the peak of the rut. This is a limited opportunity, in the last two years 13 bow hunters killed 9 P&Y bucks scoring between 134"-195", with an average score of 158".



Wizard Lake Outfitting took Alberta Outfitters 2007 Top Awards for Archery Typical & Non-Typical Whitetail

Whitetail Deer Rifle hunts- Rut:
We offer peak of the rut rifle Whitetail hunting in Alberta's famous central farmland region. We stand hunt from ground blinds to heated tower stands depending on hunting conditions.

BEAR HUNTS   We specialize in guided black bear bow hunts and rifle bear hunts in the remote wilderness of Alberta Canada.

We hunt trophy Alberta black bear during the spring hunting season. Our bear camp is located north of Fort McMurray in WMU 531 bordering Wood Buffalo National Park. This huge expanse of wilderness is one of the best black bear hunting areas left in Alberta! This vast area is remote and until recently has been inaccessible. There is low to no hunting pressure and a high density of trophy black bears, many in the age class required to reach both P&Y and B&C trophy standards for black bear.

Baiting black bear is permitted in our area and we use a wide variety of bait. We hunt from large comfortable tree stands or ground blinds at an average distance of 20 yds from the bait. Our camp has a 100% success rate with an average size over 6 ft, some exceeding 7 ft and weighing over 500 lbs!

 

There are about 25% color-phase bears in this area and high density of wolves, wolf tags are included and we harvest a few each year. We are confident that everyone who hunts here will have an excellent opportunity to harvest a trophy Alberta Black Bear.

Moose and Elk Bow hunts - Rut:
The North-Western region of Alberta holds an abundance of Moose and Elk. This region consists predominately of dense Aspen mixed-wood forests which provides perfect habitat for both Moose and Elk to thrive in. Moose and Elk bow hunters have experienced nearly 100% opportunity and an archery harvest success rate of 50%. The common 2 year old bull moose will have antler spreads between 35"- 40", and a mature bull moose will be between 40"- 55". Bull Elk with five by five racks are common and mature six by six bull Elk score well over 300".

 

We hunt the peak of the rut for Moose and Elk in the same area. Bow hunting mid September for Elk to early October for Moose. We hunt from a comfortable wall tent camp accessed by ATV's. Hunting method is to walk and call looking for bulls who want to reply. At this time bulls in search of cows are extremely responsive to calling. Once we get a response we set the hunter out in front of the caller. Hunters looking for an opportunity to experience the rush of calling in big game animals at close range need not look further.



We have a maximum of 4 hunters per week in camp. This is a unique opportunity to harvest a P&Y Canadian Moose or Rocky Mountain Elk.
