2018 Bow Hunt Report
Spot and stalk archery mule deer hunting is a challenging, adrenaline filled hunt! Once you experience it quite often a hunter will have to do it over and over again. Here in Alberta non resident hunters that book a deer hunt with us are guaranteed a tag and do not have to draw. We have quality deer due to a well managed herd and resident hunters being on draw.
In 2018 our usual repeat hunters Carl Rossi, Al Ciprano, John D’Angelo and Mitch Mitchum came up for the early season hunt in the beginning of September. Carl harvested a super old deer that had regressed in antler size making it his 7 buck in 7 years. Mitch took another great 183” buck, a dandy for sure but it will be pretty tough for him to better the 198” giant he took with us in 2016! John on his fourth consecutive hunt with us took a cool looking non typical velvet buck.
After we returned from the sheep mountains another four archery hunters arrived. Juan Cerrillo, Bill Crapser, Ron Fillmore and Mike Nelson. We harvested two awesome bucks this week. Both Bill and Ron took their first mule deer with archery equipment. Congrats guys!
