Free Range Bison in Alberta
Free-Range Wood Bison Hunting in Northern Alberta, Canada
It is a fact that the wild bison have always existed in these ranges and man has never pushed them out of the area. This hunt is a good one for what it is. A tough, remote hunt where the bison have to step across a particular boundary to be huntable. They are unpredictable on how often they do… but it is what it is on this hunt.
- Most of the hunting will be done on snowmobiles and quads. It is common to travel up to 80 km (50 miles) in a day. The snow is generally 1-3 feet deep. The hunt can be long and difficult but for the avid trophy hunter it is the thrill of a lifetime.
- Your guides are committed to a policy of 100% “fair chase” and stress principles and ethics above all else.
- Many of the bulls in this area are positively ancient, and trophy potential very high.
These buffalo are exportable to the United States.
These bison hunts are not for a pure “wood bison”, which allows your cape and horns to be exported to the United States. Although not pure wood strain, a bull may weigh up to 2600 lbs. and cow 1500 lbs. The rewards for the dedicated hunter can be great. Studies have shown that many of the bulls in this area are positively ancient, and trophy potential very high.
I have to say this was the best upland bird hunting I have ever experienced. Bud is an honest hardworking outfitter and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Outdoors International.
I’ve been on a lot of hunts over the past years, and can honestly say this was one of my best trips to date! With animals in every direction, the hardest decision was figuring out which Goat we were going after. That is a true rarity these days. I can’t wait to go back to hunt with this outfit!
Just returned from my Alaska mountain goat hunt – great hunt and fantastic group of guides, packers! Got my goat on the second day and I want to thank you for putting me in touch with such top notch, friendly, extremely capable people. Everything was A+ all the way around. Thanks again and I’ll be touch for another hunt.
If you’re looking for a cost effective, DIY, Moose hunt, get ahold of Outdoors International. I’ve never been more appreciative of a company and the knowledge they share to put together this hunt for my dad and I. Thanks for everything!
My elk hunt was fantastic. I have hunted all over the world, but chasing big bugling bull elk in New Mexico was a thrill. The camp and staff were great and the hunting was exciting and memorable. This was a hunt I will never forget and I took a trophy that will help me tell the story for years to come. Outfitter was top notch and so was the hunting.
Having an industry which is littered with “mediocre” brokers, it is refreshing to have solidified a great working relationship with those at Outdoors International, with special thanks to Russ Meyer … he’s top notch in the business!!
I first used Outdoors International to book a hunt in the fall of 2012 and continue to use them today. My first experience far exceeded my expectations and throughout our relationship they have become true friends, not just a booking service.
I couldn’t believe in less than seven days I had harvested a dall sheep and a grizzly bear, it was a trip of a life time! I cant say enough about how impressed I was with this Outfitter. From the knowledge of the outdoors to how my made my time in camp with him very memorable.
I will book another trip with Outdoors International in the future. I like the fact that someone from OI has been there or hunted with the outfitter and can intelligently fit the hunter with a hunt they can physically do and enjoy.
People don’t know what they are missing out on. Just because Kyrgyzstan end in “stan” doesn’t mean you wont make it back alive. An unbelievable experience of a lifetime!
