Tried this awhile ago to no avail , so now close to hunting season I will try again , someone has to be out there ! ( just copying and pasting my last entry )

So going to kind of lay it out on the line here,so I do apologize. After a few brutally failed hunting buddy's, I am looking for a new buddy.

Bit about myself first. I am 35/male living in deep s.e calgary and married. Incase of old buddy's on here I will leave it at that for the time being.

I am looking for a buddy around same age, and lives somewhat close. Can be a seasoned hunter or a newbie, does not matter. I am looking for someone to get out soon with coyote hunting and get some door knocking done to find some permission and get into great for next year season as I have had 3 bad seasons in a row now. I would like to hunt deer, elk and anything else possible as well as game birds. I would love to explore camping and hunting as well, as I hope to get outfitters tent soon. I would also love the idea of horseback hunting and I do have access to a couple horses.

A buddy that ice fish's in the winter would also be ideal.

I'm looking for someone to go for beers with, and wing nights during the year. And just an all around good friend.

Let me know if you are interested!

Well, I'll try again this year and see if I can find a buddy.

I am 32 years old and love the outdoors. I have an almost 2 year old boy and a wonderful wife who lets me off the leash for most of the season. I live in High Prairie and usually hunt on public land north of town. I go for elk, mule deer, and WT. let me know if you want a buddy or would want to accompany me sometime!

27 year old male from Edmonton looking for an elk hunting partner. I'll be rifle hunting. I have a trip booked from Sept 15-24. Gonna use the first few days for scouting. The area I'll be hunting will be west of Rocky Mountain House towards the mountains. Looking for someone with some elk experience as this is my first time. I have spots picked out. Just looking for someone who is willing to teach. The plan is to have a base camp and do a lot of walking and spend a night here or there camping from the backpack if needed. If you're interested in joining for all or part of the trip let me know.

Hey guys. Just looking for a partner for some bird hunting this month, I'm in Edmonton but usually go around Rocky. If anyone knows and is willing to show me a closer area, great. Also would be awesome joining a goose hunt, haven't gone out for goose in 12years.

I'm a 30 year old married father of a son who's 1. Work a lot, but have time sometimes to rip out hunting for the day.

Pm me if you're interested.

Default Hunting Partner

I am a 70 year old male and a serious hunter. I have had many hunting partners over the years and have been in a number of hunt gangs in Ontario, where party hunting is allowed. I have been in Alberta since 1980 and have
hunted deer, elk, or moose in most of the foothills MMUs from Coleman in the south to Valleyview in the North. Unfortunately, every one I have hunted with has either died off or moved away. I have been hunting deer by myself for the
last 10 or so years but A) it is not as much fun as when you have company,
B) my wife is concerned that I might hurt myself or have a medical emergency
while deep in the bush or camping by myself in places where no one knows where to find me, or C) I can not hunt anything larger than a deer or anything away back off a road because I am just not as strong as I used to be. I am retired so I am able to go almost any time. I have a complete inventory of camping and hunting supplies including a 4x4 and a RV trailer, if needed. I do not care how old or experienced you are as long as you are serious about hunting. I do enjoy a couple of beer in the evening but do not allow any drinking during the hunting day. I am a firm believer in gun safety and safety in general. If you would be interested in learning more, do not hesitate to reply. By the way, I live in Calgary but have had hunting partners in Edmonton and elsewhere.

Doug, please see my listing under Tom, an old hunter.
I have two Weatherbys, a 7 MM Weatherby Mag and a 300 Weatherby Mag (which I normally don't hunt with - I just always wanted to have one) plus a Benelli semi auto in a 300 Winchester short Mag and a Remington semi auto 3006 which I have probably shot over 50 deer with since I was 16.
If you are interested in hunting with me, please let me know.

Default Looking for Hunting Partner or Team for rifle Deer hunting

I am a 53 year old CF Veteran looking to team up with an experienced hunter and/or team to hunt for general Whitetail and/or late season general Elk anywhere within a few hours drive of Edmonton region. I hunt rifle only. I am still relatively new to hunting in Alberta so I am looking for a Hunter or Team that already knows good productive hunting areas and/or have been given access to private lands. I would prefer to hunt Whitetails during the rut in November. I have 14 years of Whitetail hunting and a career of safe firearms handling experience. I am fully geared; although, I do not have an outfitter tent or camper of my own. I am a non smoker and light social drinker. Cheers.

Hi, was wondering if you found anyone to hunt with yet? I had planned on an elk trip with a friend but due to a family emergency he will not be able to go as planned. I am a bow hunter primarily, but was planning on rifle hunting this trip for elk. I have been hunting in Alberta for only a few years, as I am from BC. I have some experience with elk but mainly moose and deer. I am still going, but would rather hunt with a partner. I know you are looking for a partner experienced in elk hunting so would understand if I'm not what you are looking for . Let me know what you think.

Default Looking For Hunter Host

Hey Guys,

This is likely a long shot or possibly frowned upon, but I am from Wisconsin and would absolutely love the opportunity to go on a Canadian Moose Hunt. I am an avid hunter, I produce a hunting show called The Breaking Point, and would love to meet a generous Albertan willing to share a once in a lifetime experience..

Default Crown lands for hunting along Battle River regions?

Hi. I am a semi retired Canadian Veteran looking for good hunting areas away from the heavy timber, rolling hills and Mountains. Are there any good Crown land hunting areas for Whitetail deer along the Battle River and Battle River drainage regions in Alberta? I would greatly appreciate your assistance as I am still relatively new to hunting in Alberta and need help. If you do not wish to post locations publicly please fire off a personal message with details incl GPS coordinates. I am also looking for a hunting partner and/or team to hunt Whitetails and Elk if possible in these areas I am asking about. I have 30 years safe firearms handling and experience and 14 years Deer hunting experience. Good luck to all fellow Hunters this season. Cheers.

Default Lethbridge/Southern AB Elk Hunting Partner

Hello!

I'd like to get a General Bull Elk this season. I'd rather not be in grizzly country alone... It's looking like the forestry closure is going to be lifted this weekend. Anyone else looking to hunt this weekend?

- Levi

Hi Tom,
My name is Tyler. I'm interested in your offer for a hunting companion. I'm 43, married with three kids.
Last year was my first year back into hunting in almost 20 years so I consider myself a newbie. My father used to own a guiding outfit in Northern BC for 17 years so I grew up hunting and guiding as a young guy. I have my own truck and shoot with a 300 WM. I am self sufficient and would not be a pain in the ass. Not afraid to work hard and enjoy the fruits of our labour! I am all about gun safety and never drink during hunting. Send me a personal message and we can coordinate a meet and greet as I live in SW Calgary.

Default New Hunter looking for mentor

Hey everyone, I'm a 27 year old guy based out of Calgary, I'm looking to start bow hunting next season, I started archery in the spring but I'm not comfortable enough with my shot yet to hunt with it, but I still wanted to get a head start this season. I don't really have anyone around who hunts to learn from. I'm looking for someone who would be willing to teach a new guy the ropes in exchange for help packing out an animal. I'm not too picky on what we would be hunting or whether it's with a rifle or a bow, I just want to get out there and start learning. Thanks.
