The Peace River Region of northwestern Alberta has long been recognized as an excellent location for hunting the large bodied, heavy, dark antlered bucks of Alberta. The abundance of feed produced by local agricultural operations and the large tracts of timbered, vacant woodlands provides ideal habitat for our whitetail and mule deer herds. Early season hunts are targeting deer that are still in their summer/early fall feeding and traveling routines. Stalk, stand, and still hunt Alberta bucks at feed sources, bedding areas, watering holes and natural mineral licks. Once rut activities start kicking in stand hunting feed sources and travel routes and stalk hunting the areas frequented by the does is the key to harvesting a large Alberta buck.
