Alberta is world-renowned for their exceptional deer hunting, were I hunt is no exception. Mountain Spirit Outfitters offer premier and personalized whitetail and mule deer hunts in the surrounding area of Hinton, Alberta. The hunting is on the eastern slopes in the foothills outside Jasper National Park. It is bush hunting at its finest; heated ground or tower blinds are set up for whitetail and occasionally mule deer with the hunters comfort in mind. Mule Deer are mostly spot and stalk glassing high ridges and old burns. This area offers a unique combination of heavy woods, poplar groves, and re-claimed oil sites planted with timothy, alfalfa and Brome. The recent mild winters have ensured heavy antler growth of record quality. The stands are set up along edges of clear cuts, well-travelled routes, mineral licks, cut lines and pipe lines. All the deer hunts are one and one unless otherwise requested.
Arrive a day early to view the Bighorn Sheep where the World Record was harvested at famous Cadomin, a forty minute drive from Hinton. This is a phenomenal and unforgettable sight, seeing up to 180 rams at any one time, many over Boone and Crockett’s minimum requirement. Spend hours with camera and binoculars in hand.
