Season 2001

The year and the new century got off to a great start for us, as well as for BILL WILSON of Missoula, MT. Bill took this terrific cougar on New Year’s Day.

TROY WESTMEYER of Minot, ND, came for his first visit to Alberta in January. Troy’s dad, Ray, also came along to observe the hunt. The snow conditions were less than ideal, but hard work paid off. Troy took this tom on day nine of his hunt.

TERRY WALKER of Edson, AB, is pictured here with Rebel, a prominent member of the Double Diamond Outfitters cougar hunting team. Terry definitely had luck on his side, as he took this great cat on the first day of his hunt.

Persistence paid big dividends for our longtime friend TOM BUDD of Calgary, AB, who, after passing on a couple of cats during previous hunts, was able to connect on this big tom in February of 2001.

MIKE CIAVARDONE and MIKE PITSIKOULIS made the trip up from Lakeland, FL, to join us on a Pronghorn Antelope/Mule Deer combination hunt during the first week of October. Mike C was lucky enough to take the best Antelope of the week with this beautiful 16″ buck. Mike also took a 4 point muley buck on the sixth and final day of his hunt.

Not to be outdone, partner Mike P took his antelope on opening day and followed with this mountain monarch during the mule deer hunting portion of the trip, later in the week.

Needless to say, both Mikes went home happy!

Also joining us on the first antelope hunt of the year was GREG MICHALKO of Buffalo, MN, who purchased his hunt at the fund raising auction during the Safari Club International Convention in January, 2001.

We extend our thanks and appreciation to Greg for his ongoing support of SCI and Double Diamond Outfitters.

Our second Pronghorn Antelope hunt of the year took place in late October. An early snow turned the prairies white, and made it difficult to avoid the cactus while making a stalk!

TOM WOODSON of Blackrock, Arkansas, made a great shot to get this heavy horned, big pronged buck.

AILTON CARVALHO of Florianopolis, Brazil, traveled a long way to make his dream of hunting antelope come true. He went home smiling after scoring on this heavy 15″ Pronghorn. Ailton is now looking forward to another Alberta adventure, perhaps to hunt prairie mule deer.

Opening day for our prairie deer season was a big success with all three hunters in camp tagging muleys before days end.

KARL HAGADORN of Queensbury, NY, made a great shot, taking this fine buck at approximately 350 yards.

 

JEFF CORIGLIANO of Seattle, WA, has hunted with us a number of times, becoming a good friend along the way. On previous hunts he has taken moose, deer and antelope. This time he opted for a prairie mule deer hunt. It was a great pleasure to hunt with Jeff again and share in his success. Jeff scored on this high and heavy mule deer on the first morning of our prairie deer season.

MARTIN HARRINGTON, owner of Marty’s Sports and Gunsmithing in Bennington , VT, hunted with us for the first time this year. When Marty got his chance, he made it count, getting the third of the three bucks taken that day.

Once again, DON SELBY of Orem, UT, joined us in Mid November. This time he came seeking a fine prairie muley which he took on the second day of his hunt.

Don is a good friend who will be joining us when we head to Sonora, Mexico in January. We will be hunting Desert Mule Deer and Coues Deer with Ubaldo Lopez of El Rodeo Hunting Lodge.

MARK HONIGSBERG of Mahopac, N, took this fine prairie buck after hiking several miles and many coulees.

TROY WESTMEYER, who took a cougar with us in January, returned in November to spend Thanksgiving in search of a trophy Alberta Mule Deer. As you can see, Troy had some great success in Alberta during 2001, and we’re glad to have played a part.

Sometimes outfitters can fit in a day of hunting for themselves. This prairie whitetail was taken the same frosty, foggy day as Troy’s muley above, with a 140 grain Barnes X bullet from a .280 Remington.

BILL WILSON, who started out the year with his New Year’s Day cougar (see the top of the page), returned to Alberta in November to try his hand at a mountain deer combo hunt for the last 5 days of the month. Day four was one of those spectacular November days that only a deer hunter can fully appreciate, producing this magnificent mountain muley.

This was one of two great mule deer bucks we saw that day.

The next day was the final day of the season. Bill made a great shot, harvesting this ridge top whitetail buck at just over 300 yards. Bill is now a Barnes X convert, having taken each of these bucks with a 140 grain “X” bullet from his .280 Remington.

Thanks to everyone who joined us in 2001 and made the year another memorable one for us. Congratulations to those whose success we were lucky enough to share.

BILL WILSON of Montana, came north for a couple weeks of hunting. We started out after pronghorns in late October. After a long and well executed stalk on a picture perfect day, he made a skilled long shot to harvest this exceptional trophy antelope buck. Note the huge prongs and terrific mass.

We took advantage of the beautiful fall weather and got our dogs out in the field for a couple days for a little upland bird hunting. We were pleased to shoot a few hungarian partridge and pheasants over our pointers.

Our friend Bill has hunted with us several times over the years and we enjoyed having him and his Pointing Griffon, Ralia back!

GARY ROBBINS of Sylmar, CA, returned for his second mule deer hunt with us. He took this beautiful muley buck on the first day of his hunt. The “corkscrew” drop tine off the right main beam, gives this big buck some added character.

This buck will share Gary’s trophy room with the great muley he got with us in 2006.

MARK SMITH of Arizona, was more than just lucky to connect on this beautiful prairie whitetail the first morning of his hunt. He made a great spot in finding this deer and an excellent shot to take him. Check out the brow tines, matching stickers and mass.

Mark was using a .30-06? with 165 grain? Barnes X Triple Shock bullets.

Mark also took this old, heavy and bladed prairie muley on his last day with us. Tremendous mass and double brow tines! We had been battling the wind for days and the long hikes through the coulees finally paid off. After a really cool stalk, he added another big Alberta buck to his collection.

RUBE WOOLSEY of Arizona made a great shot on this nice whitetail after a perfectly executed stalk on the very last day of his hunt. These Arizona coyote hunters are good with a gun!

RAY LIDEN of California, chose this high racked 4 x 5 mule deer on the last morning of his hunt. Super brow tines on this muley!

GABRIEL ECHAVARIA of Columbia, travelled far to hunt Alberta deer in both the prairies and mountains. He took this handsome whitetail on the first day of his November hunt – on horseback in the Alberta Rockies.

A couple days later, after a challenging stalk, he took this deep forked, 4 x 5 trophy mule deer while hunting on the Alberta prairies.

DENNIS WOODRUFF, currently of the high seas, (Bon Voyage Dennis!) took this beautiful buck on his first day hunting the prairies with his friend Gabriel. We managed to intercept this buck just as we had planned and Dennis was ready when he appeared, with a perfect shot!

Trophy Mule Deer Hunt

TRACY BURTON with her “dagger buck.” Sometimes guides get a day off to do some hunting of their own. This heavy old mountain muley is a unique trophy and will always be a reminder of a special day in the field with friends

DONALD SHRUM of Nevada, took this heavy, old mule deer on a sunny November day. This 4 x 5 had super mass along with double and triple brow tines. We spent all day after this big buck and made what was likely the most difficult stalk of the season. Making our best guess as to his hidden location, we patiently belly crawled down a fenceline within yards of him, as it was our only chance to get a shot!

Trophy Mule Deer Hunt

JIM PHILIPZYK of British Columbia, with his nice muley buck, taken on the last day of the prairie hunts. We finally had snow to get the deer up and moving. Jim made a great long shot and helped us finish up our season in style with friends!

TOM GILMORE of Libby, Montana, took this gorgeous bull on the fifth day of his horseback moose hunt. As you can see, persistance and patience paid off with a very unique and beautiful trophy. Note the unusual blue/grey coloration and light colored hooves which are the result of a recessive gene.

MEL PEDDIE of New Liskeard, ON got this tall and heavy beauty after a strategic (and did we say LONG?!) crawling stalk. His hunt was not quite as easy as his friend Dario’s was. (We hope your knees have healed, Mel!)

BARRY REISWIG of Cody, WY, came back to Alberta to add another trophy pronghorn to his collection. He took home this dandy buck. Barry has also hunted mule deer and moose with us in the past and we truly enjoyed having him back!

JAY FURNEY of Pueblo, CO came north for a trophy Shiras moose horseback hunt at the end of October. He took this great bull with long points and tremendous fronts, the first morning of his hunt. After a fresh snowfall, the conditions were perfect. This moose was a straggler in a herd of bulls that were heading into the timber and Jay had a very small window to make the shot. Well done Jay!

STACEY YOUNG of Pueblo, CO accompanied Jay on his moose hunt. After helping pack out her sweetheart’s moose it was her turn. Not to be outdone, she shot this heavy antlered whitetail two days later. After some serious tracking she was rewarded with her “trick or treat” buck on Halloween. We all agreed this buck was definitely a “treat”.

(See Patrick’s cougar taken earlier in the year at the top of the page.)

(See Emmanuel’s pronghorn taken later in the year further down the page.)

RUSSELL FORBES of Kitchener, ON, came back to Alberta in September to hunt for trophy mountain mule deer on horseback, ahead of his antelope hunt. He shot this big heavy buck in a high country basin after riding up the mountain from camp as the fog began to roll in. The buck was spotted with barely enough time for a shot before he dissappeared into the mist.

We then headed out to the prairies for pronghorn antelope, where Russ took this tall pronghorn buck. We had made a long stalk on this buck earlier that day but could not get within range. Luckily we were able to find him again and had the perfect topography to sneak in for a close shot.

JOHN DONATO, of Cambridge, ON with his wide and long pronged antelope. We had some great cover along a fenceline for our first stalk, but could not get a shot through the tall weeds. He patiently waited for the buck to make his way back to the stubble field and made a long, careful crawl to take the shot.

FINN NIELSEN of Denmark with his pronghorn buck, taken after a belly-crawl to get within shooting distance.

KIM RASMUSSEN of Denmark with his high pronged antelope. Kim made an amazing stalk in some unusually cold and windy weather to get on this buck.

KIM RASMUSSEN of Denmark with his tall, handsome mountain mule deer. Fortunately the cougar did not damage his beautiful cape as he packed it into the trees.

SHAWN WALSH, of Oyama, British Columbia and his pronghorn. This antelope has the nubby look that some bucks get from age. We spotted him the first morning and went back to look for him a couple of days later. We waited quite a while in the shade of some round bales before the buck finally got out of his bed and came towards us giving us a shot.

EMMANUEL GREGORY of Strathfield, Australia with his gorgeous pronghorn antelope. This buck has everything: weight, prongs, and extra length in a nice curl. After an easy stalk in some hilly country this buck walked right within range.

JOHN HLAUDY of Meadville, PA, with his great pronghorn, taken a short time after and not far from Emmanuel’s above.

REX SMITH of Grand Rivers, KY, with his bladed and webbed prairie muley. Nice brows too! Rex brought his son Jay and friend Brett along with him to Alberta to hunt mule deer.

BRETT KIK of Madisonville, KY, harvested this nice muley at close range just like his friends Rex and Jay above – they were all prepared for longer shots! We spotted the buck in some sand hills and while we were trying to close the distance he appeared right in front of us!

PETE KLAETSCH of Whitefish, MT, with his perfect muley. It took us a couple stalks to get within range of this deer, then we had to wait patiently in the cold for him to get up from his bed. Thank goodness for the sun on our backs.

GARY SHARA of Baraboo, WI, with his beautiful buck taken only a couple miles from his son-in-law Pete’s above. We saw him drop into the coulee early in the morning. It was a very tricky stalk avoiding other deer on our way, but we did it!

JOE CENTENO of Santa Maria, CA, took this nice muley buck on the first day of his hunt when the buck appeared in the fog.

BILL WILSON of Missoula, MT, took this great muley on the third day of the hunt. The buck had vanished on us the day before and we were thrilled when we found him again.

DAXTON TILLEY of Oklahoma, helped spot a number of mule deer with his sharp, (did I say …young) eyes. A really big buck gave us the slip the first day but we kept on trying. We made a number of exciting stalks before he made a perfect shot on this gnarly old buck. Great hunting partner!

DAN KITTOE of Alaska, came south with his friend Jim, and harvested this beautiful mule deer in a shallow coulee on the first day of his hunt. Notice the double brow tines.

CODY ADAMS Manitoba, was given a mule deer hunt as a wedding gift from his dad Chris (below). Lucky guy! He took this fantastic buck after waiting patiently for the bedded buck to get up and offer a broadside shot.

CHRIS ADAMS Manitoba, went home with this tall and heavy buck. After stalking up on this buck to within 50 yards we had to back out when his rifle malfunctioned. With another rifle in hand, we were lucky enough to find the buck again. After a long stalk and a long wait for the buck to stand, success! A great way to end the season!
