All about the area - why hunt in alberta?
Alberta boasts what is arguably the finest waterfowl hunting on the continent. Generous bag limits, limited hunting pressure and relatively naïve birds combine to make our province a waterfowler’s dream destination. The Peace Country may be the very best goose-hunting destination on the continent. Thousands of local and migrating Canada geese stage in northwest Alberta’s Peace country throughout September and October. The Peace country is a large block of parkland habitat surrounded by forests of poplar and mixed coniferous trees. Running throughout the “Peace” is the mighty Peace River and several large lakes and wetlands provide additional staging habitat for migrating wildfowl. This is the first place where the geese are introduced to sportsmen and the birds are naive and rarely shy from a blind.
As with the geese, ducks (particularly mallards) stage in the Peace parklands by the thousands. The abundant mallards share the same food source as the geese and very often mallards are shot prior to and in between goose flights. The large wetlands and lakes of the Peace parklands the boreal forests also offer some of the best diver hunts in the West. There are literally countless bodies of water throughout the North that have never seen a duck boat.
