General Comments

"I've been on many mule deer hunts and harvested my biggest mule deer ever on this hunt with THA. As well as TV coverage through our North American Hunting Club TV series, I'll be writing a piece for NAHC Magazine that will recommend THA as a unique opportunity, especially for large mule deer and for combo hunts. I was blown away by the variety and numbers of wildlife we saw - mule deer, whitetails, black bear, moose, elk coyotes, many different birds. My guide was top notch - he's the kind of guy you could put anywhere with a client after any game and they would be successful. I really appreciate THA's attention to detail. It really let me know what to expect and what was expected of me "
Bill Miller, Executive Director, North American Media Group

Trophy Hunters Alberta is the best outfitter, with the best guides and the best mule deer, that I have ever hunted with."
Tim Wells, Outdoor Writer & TV Host

"My mule deer hunt was excellent value and a true team effort. The outfitter, guides, ranch family and community all played a part in my excellent experience with THA. I observed 100s of mule deer daily with 25 to 40 bucks per day. I came as a client and left as a friend and part of the family."
Al Kuntz, Al's Worldwide Adventures

"My 4th straight mule deer hunt with THA and my 4th beautiful mule deer. It doesn't get any better than this. My guide, Dennis, is the best guide I have ever hunted with and I have hunted worldwide. As a team, we are too tough to stop and I'm already booked for next year. My advice to anyone contemplating a hunt with THA is "Book early & book often". As always, I would be pleased to be a reference for THA. "
Jim B. - Fairbanks, AK

"I am very happy with the mule deer I killed. The weather was good for hunting and the area was very pretty.
John E. - Elk Grove, CA

"Every aspect of our mule deer hunt was great. The only downside to this hunt is that future hunts won't be able to match it. We are a group of 4 hunters on our 4th mule deer hunt including New Mexico and this is the 1st time any of us have pulled the trigger. All 4 of us got great muleys during the first 3 days of our hunt and we also harvested a 6x6 elk. I will gladly be a THA reference and will return."
Greg E. - Madison Lake, MN

The hunt was as previously described by THA and I would recommend THA to my friends and other hunters. I may not get to the top of the hill first, but I will get there. I would be happy to be a THA reference."
Buck H. - South Lake, TX

"Great guys, great country, knowledgeable guides, super food and good densities of whitetail and mule deer. Everything was excellent. I would recommend THA to my friends and would book with THA on returning to Alberta. My hunt was professionally coordinated and executed extremely well by the guides. If all your guides are as knowledgeable and professional as I experienced, I predict that THA will continue on a great tradition of high quality outfitting."
Mark K. - Pierre, SD

"Great hunt! I especially enjoyed hunting with our guides, Skip & Luke. My 2005 mule deer hunt with THA was an experience I had to share with my son.

Kirk L. - Pekosky, MI

"Everything was excellent and I had a great experience. Our guides were top-notch and gave us tremendous opportunities to see, stalk and shoot at true trophy mule deer. If you are looking for a lifetime of memories, a mule deer hunt with THA will do the trick. You can use me as a reference."
Kyle L. - Pekosky, MI

"Everything about my THA mule deer hunt was excellent. The local guides have great knowledge of the hunting area and know all the mule deer patterns and escape routes.

Trevor P. - Bozeman, MT

"I have never met such a professional group of people in my life. Everything was excellent and the host family was so giving to me.

I would be pleased to be a reference for THA."
Chuck R. - Keller, TX

"Everything was excellent, or better than excellent and was as described prior to the hunt. The quantity and quality of the mule deer was superb as was our guide, accommodation & food. The winds were strong and difficult to get used to but they did allow us to target, and sneak in on, specific coulees that held animals. You can use me as a reference and on my return to Alberta, I'll book with THA."

It's sure nice to finally get my mule deer after 3 unsuccessful muley hunts elsewhere. Everything was as purported in THA's pre-hunt communications and I would be pleased to be a THA reference."
Randy W. - Madison Lake, MN

"This was my first archery mule deer hunt with THA and I had a great time. My guide was knowledgeable, friendly and competent with unquestionable ethics. I came to shoot a mule deer and a coyote with my bow and got both in the first two days. Everything was excellent, especially my pre-hunt communications with THA, and there were no surprises. I would certainly recommend THA to my friends and other hunters and look forward to returning to hunt with THA soon."

2006 Comments

"The hunt was exactly as purported in pre-hunt communications and the quantity of mule deer was excellent. The guides worked hard to find the best deer and knew the area very well.

I would be pleased to be a THA reference & will book with THA on my next Alberta hunt."

Matthew A. - Swannanoa, NC

"This was the complete package with alternate options that led to success. The hunt was even better, much better than purported in pre-hunt communications. THA is a great organization with great guides and great support and I'll be back for my 4th THA hunt next year. As great as THA is, they are always striving to improve as evidenced this year by introducing a wonderful new local guide. An extra thrill was being able to hunt with the head of THA, Peter Brill. He was as great in the field as he is as an organizer. And he serves fine wine. Thanks again for everything."
Jim B. - Fairbanks, AK

Brandon B. - Kennewick, WA

Leon H. - Chebeague Island, ME
