Default Hey Everyone

My name is Ben. I'm looking for a hunting partner preferably from the Sylvan area. I'm an honest ethical hunter. I've only hunted whitetail and mule deer and lots of pheasant. This was mostly back home in Sask. I'm interested in bow and rifle hunting and would even give migratory birds a try. Id like to start branching out into some different critters like elk moose and would one day like to go after sheep. I should also mention I'm 30 years old married with kids, I like having drinks but I'm not a drunk. Like lots of Albertans I've had to make some sacrifices lately and I gave up my truck. I'm hoping to have another by hunting season but I'm no free loader and will pitch in wherever is needed. So if you would like some company, or a Sherpa let me know open to all.

So I did post a while ago, not any replies. The situation has changed so I'll repost.

Hey all. My name is Matt, I'm a 25 and looking for a mentor for hunting(deer, elk, game birds, ect.) I am interested in talking and meeting up with a decently experienced hunter or hunters. I'm looking for a mentor who is willing to teach me and has some input on what to get for gear and supplies. I did not put in for draws this year but I am able to get the general licenses. I'm not looking to highjack some territory(I have a spot when I learn to be an able hunter.) I am purely out here to learn and have fun. I live in Fort Sask and am willing to drive and meet within reasonable distance. I can try to respond to PM's

Any sheep hunters out there this year going it alone? I have hunted the last few years up the cline river/trail, whitegoat/allstones areas as well as ranger creek areas. Looking to expand into the Cadomin areas.

20 days boys and girls, 20 days.

PM if this peaks interests.

Good luck and shoot straight.

Default Partner wanted!

Hi there, I recently have moved to Calgary from BC. I am 57 years old and have hunted since I was 20. I have hunted in several countries, as well as locally (Canada/US). If we make a hunting plan, I will DEFINETLY be there. An easy job and an allergy to exercise has softened "my keg" substantially, but I can still get it done, or just shoot further, LOL. Looking for someone to enjoy any type of hunting within the Calgary area,... or out of country.
I don't smoke, light social drinker on occasion, and would appreciate a partner with similar habits.
Big game, small game, birds, I am fully equipped for anything...just need a partner who knows the area somewhat and we are good to go!

Default Elk hunt in zones southwest of Calgary

Is anyone else interested in bow hunting elk early Sept. in the Livingston/Oldman areas. I have explored up there a bit and plan to do some more scouting. But...I have seen Grizz around and don't love the idea of going at it, processing, or hauling out alone, especially at night. If you're in the same boat, and would like to pair up or just be within radio distance of each other, if one or the other has luck (or distress), that'd be great. I am 32, an experienced though not veteran hunter, and I'm determined to give a solid effort this season.

Default Hunting Mentor Wanted

Hi all,
I am a young female looking for a hunting mentor (wouldn't say no to a fly fishing mentor either), I harvested a doe last year and have gone out with my boyfriend a few times but I would like to be more independent. I just bought a new 308 and really want to actually learn more about scouting, preparing, hunting and harvesting. AHEIA used to have a mentorship program but it looks like it has been nixed.
I am located in the Edmonton/Morinville area and work in agriculture so I am able to get permission on pasture and cropland in the area. I also have a cabin/land around Hoadley/Pigeon Lake that I am hoping to get permission on soon. Willing to travel within a couple hours or so.
I am pretty open to any type of mentor but a female would be awesome, it's hard to find young women interested in hunting, fishing, archery etc. Send me a message if your interested or know of someone that might be.

Hey guys! Long time lurker here, really havent posted much (if anything).

I am looking for someone to mentor me, or even learn the ropes with me. I am a 24 year old male with little hunting background. Ive only done small game and waterfowl for the last few years but now I want to take the next step and learn big game. Ideally I would like to learn how to hunt deer, moose and elk.

I have my own rifle, bow, and most of the essential gear. I live in Edmonton but I am willing to travel pretty much anywhere. I am very respectful and always willing to learn. I even have access to private farmland to hunt on in the Lamont area. I Just have no idea how to "prep" a hunt, or scout and what to look for. If anyone is willing to take me under there wing or just learn together feel free to send me a PM.

Hi I have a Suffield antlered draw for the second season, and looking for information as to how the hunt is held. Is it a mad scramble or are there a bunch driving all over the place. I have taken Elk in B C but would like some feedback as to how others hunted on the base

Can anyone tell me how the Suffield hunt is carried out ? Are there yahoos driving all over the place, or are you assigned an area by yourself ? Hunt in meadows or tree cover. I have taken Elk in BC by calling but have no idea how this hunt is conducted. I would like to hear from anyone that has done the hunt and what and how you did. Thanks Rick

There's lots of threads about the Suffield hunt,just use the search function and you'll have plenty of reading for days lol. Most of it is negative review,some guys said its alright. Not much of a hunt though,more of a cull deal. Good luck...

First time moose hunter heading up to 542 this year. I've got a few elk and lots of white tail in the past. I'm looking for other hunters in the area that would like to share their experience there during this season, such as dead zones or areas to avoid.

If you're at all interested in exchanging information this fall shoot me a message. I will be hunting solo as well, so if you're after a partner that works for me too.

Default Peace River area

Hey, I'm 34 and this is my first year hunting, my first hunt was a successful Spring Bear, got draws for antlerless elk and doe mule, in 527. I'm looking for people in my area that will be duck and grouse hunting as well, I'm wanting to go and bag some birds but it's all new to me. Have a nice Rem 870 shotgun and an accurate .22lr rifle, so if anyone is from the area and wants a partner, let me know.

I'm pretty laid back and quiet, and will be very respectful.

Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone,

First time antlerless elk hunt in WMU 526, starting December 21. I have the iHunter App, and will be purchasing the land ownership map to go with it. I also have a tag for a mule deer in WMU 527, ending December 20. I'm hoping to make a trip up there and hopefully come back with both tags filled. I'll be travelling from Sherwood Park.

I'm hoping that someone can help me figure out some decent spots to scout ahead of time, and give me any tips to help me in either WMU. I'm still fairly new to big game hunting, so any help would be appreciated. I'm not looking for trophies (as indicated by my tags!), just looking for meat for the family. Also not afraid to go and talk to some farmers who are receptive to having a respectful hunter work their land - I would just rather have a good starting spot so I don't waste time bothering people who won't allow access.

If anyone is interested in mentoring or helping out with the hunt, we can meet for a coffee or a beer and see if this is a fit.

Thank you!

Hi my name is Ade , male, late twenties and located in Calgary. Let's start with what I can give, I'm handy with computers, bilingual if you need to practice French or English. I'm not a certified personal trainer, however I can write programs or assist with meeting fitness goals.

I recently got my first rifle and I haven't fired it yet, because looking for a place to sight or practice with the rifle without paying an arm and a leg is looking doubtful. Also affordable shooting ranges have waiting lists. If anyone with experience is willing to show me how to be a better marksman, or provide details on where I can practice safely, I'd appreciate that.

I'm also in the process of getting the online hunter education course. I'd like to hunt, as that's the only reason I purchased a firearm. Although the course is a good one, it doesn't reflect the reality on the ground. An experienced and willing mentor would be appreciated.

I hope to be able to return the favor to those who may need it some day.
Please send a pm if you're able to assist.

Hi everyone!

My name is Brendan, I'm 28, and am fairly new to Calgary. I moved to Calgary for work (I'm a pilot), so I have a mixture of weekdays and weekends off. My goal is to get into hunting ducks and geese this year. I don't have a preference for over water or field shoots, I just don't have a way to get them out of the water yet. I don't have much gear yet though. I've got a Benelli Supernova 12 gauge that I've patterned with multiple different ammo, a dozen floater mallards and I made about 30+ Canada goose silhouettes. I don't have a ground blind yet but I do want to get one. I also definitely don't mind driving few hours either.

I'd love to tag along and help with setup/takedown and learn a few things. I don't smoke, I occasionally have a beer or two and am very responsible and polite. I'm planning to go out myself to scout, ask permission and find shoots myself too. So if you'd like a hand setting up, and some company for a shoot I'd love to join! Thanks for your time!
