September 18-22 (5-days) and November 13-18 (6-days)
This horseback mountain mule deer hunt takes place in western Alberta with a long time outfitter who grew up in the area. The outfitter and his team is committed and dedicated to putting in the time and effort of scouting and finding a good representative mule deer. We recommend this hunt for those who want to experience a true mountain horseback hunt from a wall tent camp in some incredible scenery. While the population of mule deer isn’t as high as some areas to the south, the experience of the hunt and the quality of bucks can make up for it. A representative buck here will be a mature buck (3×3 or 4×4) scoring 150″+ with much larger bucks harvested almost every season. Upon your arrival, you’ll drive 3-4 hours to the trail head and then depart with saddle horses & pack horses for a 3-4 hour ride to hunting camp. Hunting camp consists of comfortable wall tents with cots and wood stoves. Your day is spent riding and hiking, spot & stalk hunting for a trophy buck. There are a lot of open grassy mountain meadows and burns where these big bucks feed. We only take five hunters all season with one hunter on an early season September hunt followed by four hunters on the November rut hunt, two hunters in two separate camps. This is a great choice for a couple of buddies. #603
