Now that fall is officially in full swing, hunters are out for the big game! As the weather starts to become colder, animals will start moving into the rut. Hunters in Alberta know that this is the perfect time to hunt elk, moose, and deer.
Hunting In The Fall
Here are some tips to follow when hunting this fall:
Elk. One of the most exciting hunts is the elk hunt! Mastering a good call and understanding how the elk communicate is key to being successful. Elk are grazers, which means you will find them looking for the best feed in their area. Early in archery season calling will bring them to you. However by the 2nd week of september they will be with cows and you will have to go to them. Don’t worry about being too quiet.
Moose. If you’re taking on a moose hunt this year, make sure you are physically prepared – especially if you’re heading way back in the bush. If you can, it’s always a good idea to scout out your hunting area ahead of time and look for rubs on trees. Moose love swampy areas with lots of red willow. Look for areas that are tucked into the back ends of cut blocks for your optimal hunting area. Best time to call, last 5 days of September and first 5 of October.
Whitetail Deer. Silence is key when hunting deer. Try your best to take silent breaths and don’t move a muscle when in a deer stand. When walking around, make sure to use the “heel to toe” method. If a deer looks in your direction, that means they have either heard or saw a glimpse of movement. Hold still. They may stomp their hooves but a little flick of the tail tells everyone else things are ok.
