Moose

Trophy Hunters Alberta is Alberta's premiere Moose outfitter, owning some of Alberta's best allocations for the species throughout the forested area leading into the slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. THA has 62 moose allocations offering both archery and rifle hunting experiences. Prices for moose hunts in Alberta are typically about half of the price charged for a moose hunt in Alaska, the Yukon or in British Columbia. Trophy Hunters Alberta is renowned for its moose hunting successes in Alberta.

THA hunters can hunt Alberta for the Western Canada moose, the second largest sub-species in the moose family where our opportunity rate is usually between 75% to 90%. The harvest rate is generally 85%.

THA's premium moose hunts take place in the coniferous forests and willow muskegs of west-central Alberta, in the foothills of the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The more southern WMUs actually border on spectacular Banff National Park with its incredible scenery. Our moose hunts are conducted over hundreds of square miles of rich wilderness habitat supported by a well-managed and moisture-abundant regional biology.

THA has an excellent track record for our moose hunts and is well known for its moose hunting successes in Alberta. THA was the recipient of the APOS (Alberta Professional Outfitters Society) Award for 'Largest Moose - Archery on an Outfitted Hunt'. We are also very proud of the former world record Shiras moose killed in Southern Alberta by Brad Miller that scored 461 7/8 SCI and had a spread of 61 inches!

We hunt moose using various methods to attract the moose to our hunters. If one method is not working, we can change the plan and/or location as required. During the moose rut season, which usually occurs during late September through the middle of October, we will frequently be calling moose with cow calls and/or bull grunt calls. If the bulls are unresponsive, we will cover as much territory as possible utilizing ATVs on our rut hunts and 4x4s on our late season hunts to find our bull moose. No matter which method of transportation is utilized, we expect to do a fair amount of walking/stalking to find, and get close to, our bull moose.

Accommodations for our moose hunts can vary from tent camps through trailer/motorhome camps to working Alberta ranches, local B & Bs, motels and Guest Resort cabins.

ARCHERY - MOOSE

THA's Archery Moose hunts take place in the forested area leading into the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The 'early season' archery moose hunts occur just north of Rocky Mountain House (WMU 330) or bordering Banff National Park (WMU 412). The 'rut' archery moose hunts occur through the corridor between Calgary and Red Deer leading west into the slopes of Canadian Rocky Mountains (WMUs 314, 316, 320, 322, 324 & 326).

RIFLE - MOOSE

THA's Rifle Moose hunts take place in the forested area leading into the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The 'rut' rifle moose hunts occur north of northwest of Rocky Mountain House (WMU 339) or bordering Banff National Park (WMUs 412 & 414). The 'late season' rifle moose hunts occur through the corridor between Calgary and Red Deer leading west into the slopes of Canadian Rocky Mountains (WMUs 314, 316, 320, 322, 324 & 326).

We offer 4 distinct types of Moose hunts:

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

Moose are certainly one of the most sought after members of the ungulate family and are frequently near the top of most hunters' wish list. The usual challenge to hunting moose, if you do not live in a prolific moose zone, is to be successful in a state, or provincial, moose draw. As there are very few states, and a limited number of provinces, that have any significant moose population, obtaining a moose draw is generally not possible and remains only a dream for most hunters.

Alberta moose outfitters have a solution to the usual dilemma facing hunters wanting to hunt the largest (and definitely best tasting) member of the deer family. In Alberta, moose outfitters have allocations for specific Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) and are able to provide non-residents a guaranteed tag for each year per moose license.

Western Canadian Moose populations flourish in these areas, as ample food, water and forest cover offer this large, and often solitary, species a peaceful and bountiful habitat in which to dwell and mate. Average bull moose racks range from 30" - 45", with body weights upward of 1,000 pounds. Although, as is our policy, we do not oversell or embellish our hunt offerings, we state that we would hope to show our hunting guests 30" to 45" moose, most years a couple of our hunters are fortunate enough to take a moose with a rack in excess of 50".

All moose hunts require good eyes to spot the moose and, in many cases, an exciting stalk to close in for the kill. Hopefully, we will have snow during our moose hunts, both rut and late season, both to increase their mobility and to assist us in spotting these elusive trophies.

Dan Parrott, famous TV host of Outdoor Traditions, in a filmed hunt hunted with us. He harvested a 378 6/8 SCI Western Canada moose. He states it was the best hunt he has ever been on with world class guides.

We include wolf & coyote hunting in all of our moose hunters. The odds of seeing a wolf are low in most areas, however, we usually harvest a few wolves each hunting season.

All our Moose hunts are fully guided with 2 hunters per guide and are all-inclusive (airport service, guiding, accommodation, meals, rough caping & transportation during the hunt). There are no hidden, or surprise, charges and no trophy fees. One-on-one guiding is available on most hunts at an additional cost of $1,500/week. Also, non-hunters are welcome at an additional $1,500/week per person.

All hunt pricing is in US funds and tax (5%) and licenses are extra.
