THE BEARS: Our area in the beautiful Peace River water shed near the town of High Level AB has one of the highest trophy bear populations in North America with about 10 to 15% being color phase. Light hunting pressure allows us to produce a higher percentage of larger, older boars for our hunters. This is representative of a mature population. Bears are so plentiful here that each hunter is allowed two tags.
STATISTICS: The Silver Fox Outfitters “two tag” hunters have averaged more than a 180% shooting rate for over 2 decades. This is one of the highest success rates in the province. We manage this by: regulating the number of hunters we take, using fresh quality bait hauled to the hunting area in our own 28 ft reefer trailer, setting strategically located baits, and by ensuring that our guides know the area we hunt. Our past success rate speaks for it self. It’s easy to see that Alberta is the place to be for fantastic bear hunting. Eric Rauhanen and the Silver Fox Outfitters “team” are the right choice for you.
BAIT HUNTING: We use beavers, butcher scraps, bakery scraps, restaurant grease, oats, molasses and specialty bear lures for bait and it’s hauled to site and stored. Our baits are set when there’s still snow on the ground,several weeks prior to your arrival. Maintained regularly they become the bear’s primary food source. Baits are accessible by four-wheel drive trucks,all-terrain vehicles or jet boat. As nocturnal animals, bears are hunted primarily in the evening. Hunters are taken to active bait sites in the late afternoon.Portable tree stands are the preferred method in our area. They are 14 to 15 feet up and 20 yards from the bait. We are quite far north and the sun set slate. We are normally finished hunting by 10:30 p.m. and out of the bush by midnight.
Youth Hunt Special; Any youth 12 to 17 years of age can hunt for free when accompanied by a full fare paying, supervising adult.

MOOSE RIFLE HUNTS We run 2 different hunts. The 1st is a 6 day rut hunting the rugged foothills/mountain areas to the west of Edson. Calling moose is incredibly exciting. A high success rate & small number of permits means this hunt sells out fast. There is no trophy fee on this hunt.
The bulk of our Moose hunting is in November and 8 days long. The moose have finished rutting and are concentrated in tamarack, muskeg fringe areas. A light snow is common at this time, and bulls are easier to spot and tracks easy to find. Our area has excellent access with many oil / logging roads and countless miles of cut lines. We use four-wheel drive trucks and all-terrain vehicles extensively. On this hunt we charge an $800. trophy fee when you tag your bull. This is an excellent hunt to add a whitetail tag too.
