Species available to hunt in Alberta

Choose Alberta for your Bison Hunt

Free ranging wild bison are one of North America’s most unique and impressive trophies. Alberta offers one of the very few opportunities to hunt these magnificent animals in a truly fair chase situation.

A True Challenge

Hunt free-ranging bison in Alberta.

Bison may be hunted anywhere they are found in northern Alberta, except within the national park and within a new Bison Protection Area in northwestern Alberta, where they have been recently re-introduced. This may be one of the toughest hunting experiences on the continent!

Most of this region can only be traveled 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.
