Bowhunting Mule Deer in Canada

Alberta is certainly a "hot spot" for big mule deer and whitetails these days. BSC has a couple of outfitters with proven track records for both species in southern Alberta. The country is almost always open, broken country that gives bowhunters a great opportunity to sharpen their spot and stalk techniques. Longer shots are often presented, and it is up to the bowhunter to determine what his or her effective range is.

Saskatchewan has some of the best whitetail hunting for Big bodied bucks there is. Saskatchewan offers the best B&C class bucks in North America and the average buck here scores between 130 and 160. Bucks with body weights in the 250# class is the average. Baiting is done with alfalfa, hay and oats, from tree stands.

There are great bowhunting opportunities for both species of deer in the western portion of Canada, and if big deer keep you awake at night, give us a call.
