A carefully managed big game species, Alberta is home to some of the largest pronghorn antelope in North America. Over the years, many Alberta pronghorn antelope have ranked highly in the Boone and Crockett and Pope and Young records. Expectations of heavy bucks in the mid 80-inch range are reasonable. Our outfitters employ a range of hunt strategies, including spot-and-stalk, decoying, and blinds at water holes. On every hunt you can expect to see a multitude of game and enjoy some of the finest prairie grassland scenery on the continent.

The Alberta province might be the best kept secret in the antelope hunting world! Alberta represents the extreme northern range of this iconic North American species and thus the body size and trophy quality of the mature bucks tend to compare favorably to specimens found elsewhere. The provincial record of 90” was taken in 2013 and several other entries that exceed the 82” Boone and Crockett minimum have been taken in over the years. Recent successive mild winters have currently resulted in a steady increase in the population and relatively low harvest levels have ensured that there are a good number of mature bucks 6-9 years of age, the optimum ages for
trophy quality, on the landscape. Mature bucks start to gather does in mid-July, and by late August are jealously defending their home territories against other bucks intent on supplanting them for their breeding rights. Whether you’re a rifle hunter or an archer looking for some fast action decoying, the antelope rut in Alberta is the time to harvest your dream buck of a lifetime!
