Description

You'll be hunting hard on this amazing opportunity to pursue Bighorns in the northern most Bighorn area in Canada. Hard hunting and backpack style hunt with quad access to glassing spots. Plan on being patient and spending time behind glass as you look for a true trophy to show itself. Not a migration hunt and there are no park lines on this hunt. Rams will go into valleys and timbered faces making them hard to turn up. Weather can play a role in this hunt as well, so patience will be key. This is a hunt for a truly experienced hunter. 12 hunting days.

Some quad use, but expect to be in good physical shape. Especially if a spike camp is needed to position yourself on a ram. Elevations run from 3000 to 7000 feet. Most hunts will include a guide plus spotter to help you locate your ram. Quad riding can be very technical and hunters need to be skilled or they will need to double behind a guide.


Transportation (To/From Basecamp)

All hunts into this area will start and end in Grand Prairie Alberta. Transition airport would be either Calgary or Edmonton, Alberta. There are daily flights on Air Canada or West Jet. It's about a 2.5 hour drive to the area.
