Alberta Trophy Pronghorn Hunt
Alberta Prairie Pronghorn Hunt
Donor: Billy Franklin, Silver Sage Outfitters

This hunt will be conducted in the game rich Prairie Region of Alberta, Canada approximately 100 miles southeast of Calgary in and around either the Red Deer or Bow River valleys. Silver Sage Outfitters offers some of the best pronghorn hunting in North America.

The early antelope rifle season in Alberta is typically the last week of September and is conducted in our northern zones. The antelope rut is in full swing and the big, territorial herd bucks that you'll be targeting will be tending their harem and fighting off interlopers bent on stealing their does.

The second antelope rifle season is typically the third week of October and takes place in our southern zones, just north of the Montana border. The hunt dynamics are markedly different from our September hunt as the rut is over and the antelope tend to be in much larger, mixed-sex groups, sometimes numbering 50-plus animals.

Antelope tend to move a lot this time of year, some covering huge distances daily to reach the vast wintering areas in the southern portion of the province. It is not uncommon to see upwards of 250 antelope, one-third of them bucks, in a full day of hunting. It may make for a little longer hunt, but your chance at a true trophy is excellent during this late season. Oftentimes the No. 1 antelope for the province is taken by someone hunting the southern zones in October.

Southern Alberta is one of the archery world's best kept secrets. In addition to outstanding trophy antelope, both deer species reside here in good numbers and are very accessible to the serious trophy hunter. This allows Silver Sage Outfitters to offer unique multiple species archery hunts in September. Our strategies include ground blinds at water holes, decoying and spot and stalk.
