Areas 526 and 527 in Alberta are great place to hunt for whitetail. In that erea of Alberta outfitters place their clients in farm field (you'll be setting in tripod between cutlines of wood waiting deer crossing) or could be hunting big wood deers.

But your best chances to tag a boone and crockett book deer (minimun score of 170 after diductions) are in central east of Alberta.

Need more info about alberta hunting just ask. Hope best of luck in your quest for a true Canadian monster.

Well I’m going to guide for an outfitter in Alberta this autumn for whitetail. 500-506, 509-510 are excellent areas. Don’t forget anywhere in Albert your chances to get a monster are quite high. But the ODDS of shooting a monster are better in those areas (Bonneville, Athabasca and Lac Labiche).

If you want I know a guy that is starting to guide for deer in Saskatchewan (on the border of Alberta) less expensive than other outfitters with excellent hunt. If you are interested let me know and I’ll talk to him about it.

The hardisty,provost ,wainright area has a good number of trophy bucks.This is east of Edmonton in the 232 to 238 wmu's.In this area you would be hunting farmers fields.

Anywhere someone go in Alberta with a little of luck (with or without the best guide) your chances to tag a Boone and Crockett buck are excellent. Don’t forget that Canadian Prairies are among the top places to harvest a B&C.

The difference from where you hunted that nice buck (508), the half south part of Alberta and the north half part of Alberta is:
- Higher hunting pressure causing deer to move more during night, one or two hour after sunrise and before sun set. Sure there are buck activities during the day but don’t tell me (that apply to many stats) that deer don’t recognize hunting pressure and change their daily activities. The south part of Alberta has a higher hunting presser than the north part.
- The most common way to hunt deer in the south part is quite simple but not all hunters and outfitters hunt that way. People a place at the end of a farm field between a piece (patch, or natural forest). Hunters wait for deer to cross the field. With that type hunting strategy you have higher chances of killing a buck during the rut when buck tend to lower their own security. At that time buck are thinking to reproduce the species than the security of their live.
- The number of deer is higher in farm area because all the farm fields produce extra food for the deer. Some thing the forest (I’m talking here forests that are minimum 15 miles away from the last farm field) can’t have.

Both Farm field areas and forest in the Canadian prairies offers excellent hunt wherever someone goes.

Best of luck to every hunter and specially the one coming hunting in Canada.
