Hi everyone,

I'm 33 years old and live in Calgary. I started hunting in 2015, first for grouse and rabbits, and from the 2017 season, for whitetails. I've developed a fair amount of confidence with grouse and had a fair bit of success over the past couple years especially (using the 22), but I have yet to connect on a deer. I have all the equipment I need, and I've done a large amount of reading on the subject. Hopefully it's just a matter of time and continuing to put in the work, and things will come together.

I have a couple of friends who hunt, but they tend to be very busy and are often unavailable. I'm looking for someone with around my level of experience and knowledge (or even better, someone MORE experienced) who has some time to go out and look for whitetails on crown land, including pre-season scouting. I also wouldn't say no to a grouse hunting partner when the time comes. For the moment all of my hunting is done with a rifle.

Hi,

I am still searching for the right hunting partner. I am retired and live in Calgary.

Looking at a 10- 12 day Elk hunt in September. My old area is shut down this season (328) so will be doing some serious scouting through the summer.

I have 2 wall tents, quad,4x4 and various other equipment needed for an extended hunt.

I am a serious, safe, sober hunter and am looking for the same.

A couple of beers around the fire is fine with me after the rifles are put away.

Hello, my name is Joshua. I live in Calgary in the NW near Panorama.

I am 30 years old and new to hunting and am looking for a mentor to teach me the ways. I just recieved my PAL and have purchased a ruger 10/22 for target practice and small game hunting. I am working on my hunter education course and plan on hunting some rabbits while waiting for other seasons to open. I am looking to buy a browning BPS in the near future so I can do game birds and big game.

As I dont have a large freezer for big game, you would be more than welcome to the majority of the meat. 10-20lbs would be more than enough for me and would last me a long time. This is another reason why I would like a hunting partner/mentor. I am more interested in the thrill of the hunt, cooking/eating them, learning an essential skill that I can pass down to my future children, rather than just shooting stuff.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your time.

Josh

38 Year Old male located west of Calgary (Andy). Married with a family of 4.... 2 teens and 2 children under the age of 3.

This will be my 1st year hunting, have all my licences (Game Bird, Hunters Ed, Wildlife certification and both PALs).

I will be hunting with general tags this season while I build priority points for future seasons.

I did enter 1 draw for 316 for Antlered Mule but with no priority I'm not holding my breath... So I would be interested in White Tail, Elk, Bear, Wolf and upland birds. Looking at WMUs 412, 414, 416 and 316.

Reason for the interest in those WMUs is I'm located close to these, can put an honest effort into scouting(Which I have already logged some decent pre season scouting at and have a few places of interest come season), I cam spend more time in the field come hunting season and lastly for vehicle access. Being a 1st timer, lacking the 1st hand knowlage of breaking the animal down and packing out it would he comforting knowing I'm can get fairly close with my jeeps to make extracting the game easier.

I'm hoping I can find a mentor that is willing to help me with the finer points of hunting. Such as Field Dressing & Processing and how to properly pack game out of the Bush.

While the 1st hand experience isn't going to stop me from trying my best this coming season, I'm sure my 1st time would be much smoother with the help of an experienced hunter that is willing to teach me the ropes.

Would be interested in Family friendly people/familys (As the wife is interested in getting into hunting and has said she would fancy bow).

I've got my own gear, and will acquire the finishing touches of my gear off by open season. Have Jeeps with lifts and mud tires as well for running into the bush. Just finishing up some work on my TJ which will be my future hunting rig for the above WMUs...

I'm safety concious, Have good ethics.

Looking forward to this coming hunting season and hopefully to finding the right mentor to lead me in the right direction.

We love the outdoors , camping, Hiking, Fishing be it a rod or wirh Spearguns/Poles.

Would also consider traveling 2 1/2 hours south or north of Calgary area.

Hi all,

I currently live in Ontario but will be relocating to Calgary by the end of the month. I've spent some time hunting birds and deer here in Ontario and spent a few seasons trapping, but am still fairly inexperienced.

I'm looking for anyone willing to have me come along for some hunts, particularly someone a bit more experienced that can show me a thing or two about hunting in Alberta.

I'm happy to carry the heavy loads and bring along the coffee. I'm also handy with a camera and am happy to provide some nice shots from any hunts i'm on.

Cheers!

Default Mentoring a new hunter

G'day everyone,

I moved to Edmonton 3 years ago but am only just getting into hunting as I finally feel like I am planting my feet here, as well as my grandfather is handing down his rifles to me since he can no longer use them. I am new to hunting and have little experience but do have years of experience with weapon safety as a weapon tech with the military so there would be no worries to have to teach from scratch.

I was hoping someone in this community would be willing to take me under their wing and mentor a new hunter that wants to become an active member himself.

Please PM me if you would like to get to know alittle more about me and see if I would be a good fit to your party.

Thank you,
Ecrabb

Default Looking to meet some new hunters Calgary area

Well, both of my hunting partners decided to love back to the west coast this year so I am on a pre season hunt for some new partners. I have a pretty intensive bow season planned mostly for elk, and always like a good day of waterfowl to switch things up.

I am not the most experienced, but have some good knowledge, have had some good success and am always respectful of any spots/locations.

Located in the nw, willing to travel.

Default ISO Hunting partner in Edmonton area

Based out of south east Edmonton, I'm a 29 year old male. Looking for a new hunting partner or two. I've been hunting for 6 years. Mostly deer, waterfowl and upland. I've attempted elk but have never been successful. I mostly hunt east of Edmonton for birds, and west and north for big game. Although I don't have a ton of experience I'm happy to mentor someone new to hunting as much as I'm capable. If you're interested in connecting to discuss more, PM me.

Default Who's looking for a Hunting Partner ???

Hello, Im 27 yo entering my second season hunting. I was skunked my first year due to not having much time to get out and no idea what I was doing. I'd love if someone was willing to take out a new hunter and show him a thing or two to help shorten the learning curve.



I'm In good shape, willing to walk far, help pack, keep quiet and do whatever it takes to learn and hopefully find some success. Feel free to pm me with any questions or advice you might give to someone at my stage.



Thanks

Edit: Located in Calgary

Default New again to geese and ducks

Looking to get into migratory birds again this season. Weekend warrior mostly but can commit in advance to some weekday hunting.

No stranger to big game and upland birds. Hunted over dogs many times with zero issues.

Hoping to meet some experienced people who can help me out. I hunt whitetail and elk in the Crowsnest pass and could swap info/hunts.

Located in Calgary but can travel.

Looking for potential waterfowl partner or partners in Strathcona, Lamont, Tofield, Smoky Lake area. Have a trailer with all the gear, extra blinds, decoys. Currently two of us spotting and shooting. Would like to to be involved in more shoots. The more eyes out there the better in a short season with one of us working most of the time. Myself enjoy the social aspect of it more so then the shooting. Two 30yr old well rounded hunters.

Default A try at waterfowl

Hi everyone. I am in the Drayton Valley area(willing to travel) I have always wanted to give waterfowl hunting a try. I want to make sure it is something I am into to justify the costs before getting too a bunch of equipment. I would be more than happy to help out wherever I can with setup, etc. I am very safety conscious and have hunted big game for a number of years.
If you are willing to put up with a nubie waterfowl hunter for a day somewhere please let me know.

Thanks!
