Subscriber T. Barcroft tells us that he recommends Alpine Outfitters (http://alpineoutfitters.com
; 866-539-4209) in Alberta
, despite not seeing a wolf on his Feb. hunt.
Barcroft tells us, "The outfitter, Lowell Davis, works hard to provide a shooting opportunity and maintain quite a number of baits and trail cameras with cellular transmission of images. He knows where and when bait activity happens. I saw animals on trail cams at several baits at night. Animals were various colors from gray to black. The weather likely will be quite cold with snow, but the blinds are heated, so extraordinary clothing is not necessary.
"The hunt is based out of the outfitter's farm; hunters stay in a house adjacent to the family home. Very comfortable! Food was excellent and the daily packed lunch kept you eating and snacking all day. Almost too much!
"Be prepared to sit in heated blinds for 10 hours per day; audiobooks are a great way to keep your mind occupied and attention focused. I enjoyed watching the eagles and other birds on the baits and seeing the countryside....
