Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions we receive from clients:
What is the weather like in Alberta?
- Temperature in August & September will vary from normal highs in the 60’s to 80’s and lows in the 40’s to 60’s.
Snow flurries can occur in the second half of September.
- October weather is generally cooler with normal highs in the 50’s to 60’s and lows in the 20’s to 40’s.
- Surprise rain showers occur frequently. Good lightweight rain gear that is pack-able for layering over your outerwear will go a long ways on hunts earlier in the season when bulking up with the warm waterfowling gear is not necessary.
- May & June temperatures will vary from normal highs in the 50’s to 70’s and lows in the high 30’s to 40’s.
- Hunts may be anywhere from a ten minute to an hour drive.

- Headlamp of some kind that straps over your head or clips on the bill of your cap.
- Boots of your choice.
