    Beautiful Whitetail Alberta Boy! - will make a great mount. Nothing wrong with the .303, shot hundreds of deer with this calibre in my younger days..... Bill.

    Alberta boy - well done! Nice to see a different species being hunted.. How does the hunting in Alberta work? Do you get a tag, or do you have to buy it? Is it a long season? Always interested to hear about how other countries hunt..

    Have you hunted in the UK?

    Nice.... Makes me homesick.... We could only use shotgun and slug in Ohio back then tho.... Maybe still that way now?? Nice thing about it, at the distance a slug was effective, you never had to worry about having the best rifle/scope combo etc......

    Cracker AB! Looks like you got lucky with that .303 - They aren't supposed to work you know!

    Well I for one don't think it's obsolete as a hunting round but then I am biased .

    ​Congratulations indeed.

    Would love to have a go for one, one day

    I did hunt small game ( rabbits ) when I was boy. I was born in Enfield, and I lived on Ordnance Rd just up the street from RSAF Enfield Lock before I immigrated here. I never got the chance to hunt anything bigger unfortunately, but I've made up for it since I came to Alberta.

    The length of season here varies from zone to zone and species to species. The area I hunt in starts Sept 17th and ends Nov 31rst. You buy tags for each species, the average price is about $ 30 cdn. In my area you're allowed three White-tails, one buck and two does, male Mule-Deer, Bull Elk,Big-Horn Sheep, Cougar and Black Bear on general license ( over the counter ) Bull Moose, Cow Moose, Antelope, Cow Elk, Muley does, Big Horn ewes, Mountain Goat and Wood Bison are on a draw system. You apply in June for the special draw license and you license number goes in a pool, the sucessful hunters are picked in August. The draw works on a priority system, the first time you apply your priority is zero, each year you apply your priority number goes up ie, after three yrs your priority number is two. Fish & Wildlife awards tags to those hunters with the highest priority number in each category, it sounds complicated but its very even handed and works very well. Timber Wolves dont require a tag and there is no limit on the number you can take ( I don't shoot wolves myself, I just feel better knowing they're there and enjoy watching them. I feel they have more right to be there than I do, and yes , a lot of people dont share my opinion but to each their own )

    There are amazing hunting opportunities in this province and not a day goes by that I'm not thankful for being lucky enough to enjoy them.
