Default Grouse, Pheasant or even Rabbit

Hey all. New hunter, 35 and live in Calgary, and willing to drive 2 to 3 hours out of town.

This is my first season hunting, and I'd like to find partners who can show me what I'm doing wrong. Been out a couple times by myself and got skunked both times. I'd like to bag some small game (upland birds and rabbits) to see how I like hunting before I go after the big game.

I've got a .22 and a shotgun, a 4x4 truck but no quad. Got all the licenses needed.

Looking to find someone to hunt waterfowl with. I have nothing more than a shotgun at the moment. Got my eyes on a blind but holding off till I know I'm going to use it. I'm 30, reliable, and safe with firearms. Available on the weekends. Texting or calling is best.

Hey guys,
26 year old guy here, Edmonton/Sturgeon county area, newish to hunting. Shot a bear last year, that was my first (only) animal. Got a bow this year and have been practicing, sited in up to 50yds. Have a couple friends that hunt, wasn't lucky enough to be born into a family that hunts! If anyone needs a second guy or would be willing to show me some 'skills', I'm eager to get out and learn, good for lots of hiking. I'm patient, easy going, don't smoke. Willing to drive a bit.

Default 406

Heading out to 406 for day trips the next couple of days with the hope of filling my WT doe tag. I will be going to foot access only areas if anyone would like to join me. I'm pretty laid back and just enjoy being out in the field.

Hey everybody!

As I've started before, this is my first year getting out in the field. I live in Edmonton, though willing to drive to gain knowledge from an experienced hunter. I'm hoping to get out next weekend, though any weekend after also works for me. I am looking to hunt most everything; waterfowl and upland are preferred for these weekend hunts as I only have a tag for anterless mule in 242, but I am open to other types as well.

Hi I am looking for a hunting partner around the Calgary area. I'm 31 years old, respectful and ethical hunter, non smoker and not much of a drinker. Unfortunately I won't be ready to hunt for a few more weeks due to some hand injuries I'm still recovering from due to a grizzly bear attack 6 weeks ago. I would love to get out and tag along with someone else in the meantime though and help out as much as I can. I'm able to go pretty well any day of the week. Typically I hunt 406,414 and 316 but I'm certainly willing to explore some new areas that aren't crawling with bears. Haha. I mainly hunt deer and grouse but I would also love to tag along on a waterfowl shoot and can lend a hand setting up. Basically I need to go out and get some fresh air in the country. I've been either in the hospital or stuck at home watching tv for the past 6 weeks since I was unable to drive. I'm at the point now where I am just starting to drive again finally.

Default Help a 12 year old out?

Hi all,

My 12 year old wants to learn to hunt. He's passed the hunter safety course run by AHEIA and we've applied for his junior PAL. He just got a whitetail tag and his waterfowl permit.

Here's the problem: We shoot, but I don't hunt. I don't know the first thing about hunting.

Anyone willing to take us out for waterfowl or whitetail? I have my PAL and can join (as a non-hunter) to take full responsibility for my son. He is mature for his age and takes direction/instructions very well. I have also taught my kids respect for wildlife and firearms safety.

We are located in Edmonton, but can make it out to the Hinton area on weekends.

Email: george0326@hotmail.com and telephone (cell) 587-337-4821.

Default I live just west of Edmonton - out by stony plain

Hey everyone.


I have all my requires tickets, licenses and have my general WT tag.

I don't have much equipment but this is what I do have.

Bow (arrows,quiver, release)
Warm hunting camo clothes and footware
Camo backpack
In field knife processing kit

What I don't have is anyone to teach me. I'm looking for someone who will take me out teach me to locate, track, stalk my target, set up my shot and then once the target is down, how to dress it, skin it (as I would like the skins) I don't want it wasted, and even the whole process of getting to the butchers etc. I really need someone to pretty much hold my hand through my entire first hunt. In return I would be in debated to you, Im also willing to share half the deer meat with you if I'm blessed enough to harvest one.

I really really want to do this. I just have nobody to go to.

My availability due to work commitments.

Nov 1st - Nov 7th

Pretty much open all of December - I'm aware some small select areas are still open in December.

Thanks for your time.

Default Calgary beginner looking for experience

Hi there, I'm a 25yr old male and I just passed my PAL and Hunters Ed. I'm not looking to go hunt this season but was wondering if there is anyone in the Calgary area willing to take me out just for the experience, as I just want to learn before harvesting anything myself... I would love to tag along on a bow hunt if there is anyone willing also. I have a bow and have been practicing but like I said, I'm not looking to harvest anything myself until I'm experienced.

I have camo/gear, very fast learner and will help with anything that needs to be done if you take me out, I would also like to learn how to field dress an animal if we were lucky enough to get anything.. I have a 4x4 truck and would use it if needed as well. I also have a fifth wheel camper that I currently use for work but will be bringing back home soon.

Hope to hear from someone and get out there!

Forgot to mention in my post that I don't, expect anything like meat if I join and help. All I am there for is the experience, and possibly a new friend.

Default Mule Deer or White Tail in Alberta 256

Hi Folks,

I'm from Lloydminster and would like to find a hunting partner for Mule Deer or White Tail around Lloyd. I've got Anterlerless Mule Deer Tags for area 256.

I shoot targets but have never had a successful deer hunt. So I'd be happy to go with anybody but would prefer an experienced hunter. I'm 49, have a pickup, no quad, and don't mind walking. I use a .30-30 or a .45-70

I also have an Antlered Moose tag for area 532 up in the north east corner.

I have the next 2 weeks off and can go anywhere soon.

Paul K

Default Looking for hunting partner/s and land for W/T deer and Elk

Hi to all on AO. I am a 51 year old Canadian Forces Veteran looking to find hunting partner/partners for rifle season, who already have established hunting land for W/T deer and/or Elk within 1-2 hours drive of Edmonton for day trips, or further if at camp. I have only been in Alberta now for 3 years, and have not had much opportunity to meet fellow hunters and find good hunting land (as I am certain most Alberta hunters know is not easy to do). I am good natured, social, a team player, and certainly open to a social drink at the end of each hunting day. I have plenty of safe firearms handling/experience, and 15 years hunting experience. Best regards.

I went scouting the 402 area last weekend and am thinking of going back over the next couple. I'm after a nice buck, and am willing to work for it and be patient, including getting away from the roads. But thats more comfortably done not alone in some of that country. I'm a 31 year old professional who lives in town but gets out as often as possible. Let me know if you're interested or have any ideas.
