Alberta Bison Hunting
Free ranging wild bison are one of North America’s most unique and impressive trophies. One of the few places you can hunt wild, free-ranging bison is in Alberta. Alberta offers one of the very few opportunities to hunt these magnificent animals in a truly fair chase situation. Alberta's population of buffalo was an area of boreal forest, parkland and open wetlands along the Peace, Athabasca and Slave Rivers in northern Alberta. These bison were designated as a separate subspecies, based on several perceived characteristics such as larger size and darker coloration.
Bison utilize scattered pockets of grass/sedge habitat along beaver ponds, sloughs and bog lakes. Bison may be hunted anywhere they are found in northern Alberta, except within the Wood Buffalo National Park and within a new Bison Protection Area in northwestern Alberta, where they have been recently re-introduced.
Contrary to the popular perception of a bison hunt, this may be one of the toughest hunting experiences on the continent! Most of this region can only be travelled in winter when the creeks and muskegs are frozen. Hunters may travel up to 100 miles in a day by snowmobile searching for fresh tracks, which if found must be followed up on foot.
The rewards for the dedicated hunter can be great however. Studies have shown that many of the bulls in this area are positively ancient, and trophy potential very high. As well, there is the satisfaction of having hunted one of the rarest and most awesome trophies, a true free ranging bison on its northern range!
