C.L. Ranch Hunts:
Guinn Outfitting manages the wildlife and hunting on one of Alberta’s premiere cattle ranches, with thousands of acres of private property. This hunting zone has one of the largest elk populations in the province. Our total permit numbers for this ranch are 6 rifle and 9 archery per year, so advance booking is a must. C.L. Ranch is situated 1 hour drive west of the International Airport in Calgary. This is foothill country, up against the front range of the Canadian Rockies. Most of the ranch can be accessed by vehicle, which enables all hunters to have an excellent chance at a good bull elk. Accommodation is a cozy ranch house situated a couple of miles from the main ranch operation. You will find the meals that are supplied to be first class; plan on gaining a few pounds during your stay with us. All hunting is done right from the cabin, either on foot or within a short driving distance. Since 1993 the success rate on our rifle hunts has been 90% and the last four years 100%. This past year we took one bull over 360 B&C and other nice six pointers. This hunt has a very high success on six point elk and the opportunity at a really big one. Season dates are from October 25th to the end of November; the first week usually being one of the best. This hunt can be extended to allow one to hunt deer as well. This is the same ranch we hunt our trophy whitetail.
The mountains of Kananaskis make an ideal setting for a traditional horseback hunt. High success rate, with a six point minimum. Only two permits per year are offered to non-residents and a limited number for residents, which equates to fine trophy animals. This hunt can be more demanding than the ranch hunt.
Accommodation while on this hunt is split between my ranch (www.boundaryranch.com) which has a 10,000 sq. ft. lodge and trophy room and one of our back country tent camps. Season dates are September 17th. Mule Deer and Black Bear can also be added to this hunt.
