Be aware that the Alberta hunt are not for the faint of heart. As mentioned you will be snomobiling a hundred or more miles from the nearest road, cell phone tower or rescue choper. You will be travelling light to conserve room for fuel cans, as such most choose to sleep in a hollowed out snowbank at -30 to -50. Most of the guided hunts are also done this way. Savage encouters is the only outfitter I know of that choppers a comfortable tent camp in. Not to discourage you, just saying. This is certainly not a hunt for everyone.
You peaked my interest on something you said you can do a diy hunt in Alberta. Does a non resident to canada have to have a guide? Would you have more information that you can get me on how i would go about a diy in Alberta? I spoke to SD and it is free range but no different than a ranch hunt. Henry mts would be great if i got a tag. Thanks to all that posted!
I have spoke with the Ranger in SD and got the information on the hunt in the park. You can put in for a non-trophy bull for 1500 or a trophy for 5000. He said your first year you will not get drawn, but after that the odds go up a lot. He was a great guy and explained everything about the hunt. Besides the hotel and butchering, most everything else they help with. He said that he has had some great feedback from the people hat have done this hunt in the past. If you are interested, PM me and I have all the information yet. The two down falls I see is when you apply you must send the full amount, of which you will get back if not drawn, and two it is not a large of area as the others. I finally decided to hold out for the Henry Mountain hunt if I ever get lucky with a tag.
Thanks I will check into that unit for sure. I appreciate the information. BP I will send you the info I have when i get a chance.
