I don't think I'll be able to get out bear hunting this year, but if you act fast I can give you some bait. I've got a bunch of animal parts including a pig head and skin and some still-born lambs. It's about a wheel barrel full. Just PM me if you're interested in getting it.

Never mind, I've just been informed that it's a no-no to use non-inspected meat.

Default new to alberta would love a partner

i am new to Alberta and would love to find 1 or 2 people to hunt mainly deer, small game and possibly geese and ducks with. i am located on a small farm just west of balzac and have just passed my nonrestricted PAL this past Saturday so have my fingers crossed t hat i get it before the season. I do have hunting experience but in the U.S. bow hunting white tails in Michigan. I would appreciate learning from someone here thoguh that is knowledgable about areas, local resrictions etc though as things in Canada are far different than they are in Michigan. Anyone interested in helping me out and teaching me the ropes, some good spots and those type of things would have my eternal gratitude at the minimum. I hope to hear from anyone anytime soon...thanks and good luck

Default Hunting Partners

My wife and I are Emergency Medical Technicians.

My wife went on a sudden death call where a member of the hunting party passed away while hunting in a remote area.

After finding no signs of life, she took a history from the hunting partners.

How long have you known him?

8 yrs

His name?

give first name, but not last name

How old is he?

no idea... over 60

Any medical history?

he takes pills, maybe for heart?

Next of kin?

yes... he is married.... don't know her name... never met her

What is his address?

don't know

Where do you pick him up?

we meet at the Tim Hortons, he parks in the Wal Mart lot next to Tim Hortons, not sure what type of car he drove.

While waiting for the RCMP to show up, lots of hunting stories about him and they even recalled the makes and calibers of his guns.

True story about true hunting buddies!

Greg

Hi everybody!
I'm new to the boards and am looking for a possible hunting partner in the fort McMurray area. I do have a friend who heads down to wandering river however schedules aren't likely to mesh this year and I'm looking for someone and places a little more local to go and learn from.

Last year was my first year hunting ever aside from trips going with my grandfather in my early teens which was more of a walk in the woods with him.

Anyone interested in taking on a helper/rookie, pm me

As the title says, I am looking for an area for me and maybe my daughter to hunt gophers. I have a .22LR and a .22 air rifle for complete quiet. All land and livestock will be respected.

Smile Just Moved to Edmonton from Ontario, looking for private property to bowhunt

Hey everyone, My name's Dan and I just moved from south central Ontario to Edmonton to work as an arborist. I used to be a Fish & Wildlife technician back home, but moved to the promised land because it is extremely difficult to get work in Ontario any more. I am huge into fishing, hunting, trapping, land management and sporting dogs, and I was wondering if anyone knows of any private land close to the city where I may have permission to bowhunt deer in the fall.>? I am respectful of everyone and all buildings, as well as extremely safe. Just looking for a place not far from the city to start out here, because I do not know many places yet. I am also interested in hunting crownland, but I'm just not sure how far to drive, or where to start. I am willing to make friends and help out with things, as well as share experiences, information and advice. Any advice would be helpful, thank you.

Dan Crook

I shot a bear opening day last fall in Ontario, which I baited for 3 weeks prior to season. I used numerous things to bait including pastries, meat, icing sugar, tuna juice, Bread, chicken scraps, bacon grease, and literally hundreds of pounds of cracked corn (which only the grouse and jays ate)....and the list goes on... but the only things that the bears found interesting were; raspberry jelly, peanut butter, apples, marshmellows, and strawberry jello powder. I think the main reson for this was because A) it was fall and the bears ate mostly sugary items that fatten them up for hibernation, and B) because I hunted forest that was surrounded by berry patches which was probably their main food source. It's amazing what they eat at certain times of the year, and how picky they can be. A trapper back home once told me for spring bear hunting (when it was allowed in Ontario) one of the best bait setups for bear is to use beaver as bait, or hang a beaver castor gland very very high ina tree not easily climbed.,... because beaver is one of the most oily, smelly, easily attainable, and protein rich foods available for bears looking to feed cubs and strenghten them up. Chances are, the bears will be feeding on what is available in the region at that time, just the best of what is offered that they are willing to eat. Then Again... I have witnessed bears eat candle wax and dog food in Provincial Parks

Hey I just moved to fort saskatchewan last july and is excited about hunting this fall. I moved here from NB where I did alot of hunting and fishing over the years with great success. I would like to get to know other hunters and get some advice where I could hunt where I wouldn't bother anyone. Don't mind having to drive an hour or 2 to get to some great whitetail area. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,

Hi there,
I'm new to Alberta, just moved out to Edmonton from Winnipeg a few weeks ago! I have been hunting for four years and love to bow hunt big game. Back home I had no problem going out hunting on my own but here I simply have no idea where to even begin looking or where to go! Any tips or help would be appreciated!
Cheers,

Default New to Alberta and looking for some hunting opportunities

Hey there, currently making the move to Calgary Alberta and I'm looking for a hunting opportunity. I'm from b.c. And hunted all my life. I don't know much about the Alberta hunting process, like tags and zones etc, but I would just like to get out with someone and chase some animals. I would even consider going along with someone and taking footage of the hunts for there bragging rights. If anyone is interested that would be great and I appreciate it. As I know just meeting someone for the first time and taking them to hunting spots is not something everyone is comfortable with. PM if your interested or any questions.
Chad.

Default partner

Hi Everyone
Looking for friends to scout/possibly hunt with this fall in the valleyview area. I am a Conservation Officer so playing by the rules is important to me. I hunt with my shotgun/rifle/bow for most things but I am not really a trophy hunter. I enjoy the food in the freezer just as much as the time outside. I often clean/butcher/shoot/scout by myself but I enjoy good company. My toys are limited and have the bare essentials for hunting ie car, climbing stand, firearms, fitness, gear, etc. I was in Edmonton a few years ago and kind of been hopping around quite a bit but I would like to try to do some hunting in the valleyview area as there seems to be quite a bit of potential here to say the least. Let me know if you want to meet up for a beer or get out bushwacking and look for some sign. If you want pm me your phone number and I will give you a call.

thanks

Jim

Default Priority 5 for antlered moose!

Hi guys I'm currently a priority 5 for Antlered bull moose but don't have anyone to hunt with and don't really know where to go. I've been a hunter for as long as I can remember but due to the type of work I've been doing I haven't been able to go moose hunting for 5 yrs now. I shot some big mule deer in the last few years south of Medicine Hat. I currently live in Devon, just south of Edmonton and will go anywhere to hunt. My new job allows me a lot more time off so the dates are flexable. Anyone interested PM me or respond to this message asap so I can get my draws put in before the deadline. Thanks and I hope to hear from someone soon.

Default Very first time

Wow, so many seasoned hunters looking for company, i feel a lil outta my leauge.
Im 25, born albertan. and have spent a few months in the rockies over my time. Hiking, river canoe trips, even got to kyayk the broken group provincal park (b.c)
BUt i have never hunted before in my life.

I've loved fishing and the outdoors since i was a wee tyke, Im decent in the woods, just never tried to use my feildcraft to bring anything home with me!

In the last year or so Ive fallen in love with traditional archery and just purchased my first bow, #45 recurve. I've become interested in hunting for food and want to start with small game(I.e rabbits, Skunks, squirrils) because i don't need tickets to get started and i can still eat it. ( waste not right?). as i understand bowhunting rabbit is supposed to be a special challange on its own. i want to learn the spot and stalk method before i start going into tree stands and the like. im planning on working up the food chain by season as i learn more and more.
Ive poured in about 100 hours of research into this, scouting, shooting, cleaning and whatnot. part of why iw wanna start small and its actually how i ended up on this site. (over and over again, thanks google)
Also shot a couple thousand arrows down range this month. Id like to think im ready as im gonna be to try.
What I am looking for is someone within 2 hours of calgary who is willing to let me come to your land and try to take a couple rabbits home with me....
I would really appreciate anything im offered really, All land/livestock/borders would be respected of course, and if you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to email or p.m me. id like to learn as much as i can as quickly as i can.
thanks
keith

any thoughts from the masses or am i out to lunch?
(p.s, sorry if i posted this in the wrong section)
