Alberta Help

Postby bullsprig2 » Thu Apr 11, 2013 12:50 pm

I am recently retired and for the first time I can go up to Canada and spend a couple of weeks hunting ducks. If possible I could use some help getting started. Where to obtain maps, obtaining permission to hunt, public areas etc. If you think you can help a new hunter out please send me a PM. Thanks

I live in SE Alberta. Where abouts are you looking at going? Lots of opportunity in many parts of the Province.

You can get county maps from Maptown in Calgary. There might be some walk in DU sites and a whole bunch of Buck For Wildlife sites for some refuge slough pass shooting as for permission, it's a coin toss as many Albertans treat their land as private with no trespassing, You might find some Use Respect signs and call them up. There is the Western and Eastern Irrigation District that might let you on, some First Nations Bands offer you a Pass for a certain fee and the Hutterites might let you on for giving them the cleaning business and also buying some produce from them. Keep in mind your hunting licence is only good for 7 days so you might want to buy a second one if need be and some motels will be booked up by oil workers and are expensive. Bigger towns will have urban sprawl and acreages with no shooting/ hunting in some districts. I personally make the 550 mile trip into Sask where I know the land and farmers as I used to live in Sask. Anywheres along the Sask Alberta border is good.

The Alberta Conservation Association has a publication that lists hundreds of sites open to the public for hunting/fishing. Many of them have wetlands on them. www.ab-conservation.com has a link to the guide online or you can contact them for a hard copy. Most sporting outlets in Alberta carry the guide as well. You can PM me your address and I'll send you a copy.

Thanks for the info. I will start doing some homework. My hope is to get in some goose hunting. Sounds like I may want to look into Sask. It will be a fun adventure. I enjoy learning a new area.
