Hunt wild, native, free ranging woods bison in scenic northern Alberta, Canada. Hunt buffalo as they were 200 years ago with very little human influence. You will encounter these magnificent buffalo in their natural environment.
In Alberta we have several free ranging herds of bison, of which only one can be hunted. It is known that the bison have always existed in this range and have never been pushed out of the area by man. We know of nowhere else in North America where you can hunt native, free ranging bison in their natural habitat. Fortunately these bison are not pure wood bison. This allows us to export your cape and horns to the United States.
For the avid hunter, this bison hunt is the thrill of a lifetime.
Generally our hunts take place in February and March. Expect temperatures ranging from -25C – +10C (-18F – +52F). Most of the hunting will be done on snowmobile. The snow is generally 2-3 feet deep so if you have never operated a snowmobile, you will learn quickly.
For this bison hunt, the hunter must be in good physical condition. Each hunter will have a guide (1 on 1), although some travelling will be done in-groups. It is not uncommon to travel 100 km (60 miles) in a day. Once a fresh track is found we may spend many hours tracking and the circumstances can be quite difficult. Past bison hunts have scored 100% success rate.
The elusive timber wolf inhabits the same vast region and can be hunted with fair success at any time during the bison hunt. A trap line tour or a fishing voyage can be combined with this bison hunt.
The days will be packed with excitement tracking down the legendary buffalo. The journey can be long and difficult but for the avid hunter it’s the thrill of a lifetime.
