Valid Outfitters is owned and operated by Brian Everett and Bryant Bowtell and we offer some of the best hunting in Western Canada! We offer premier and personalized big game hunts in the surrounding areas of Hinton Alberta. Our hunting areas, nestled in the Eastern slopes and foothills of the beautiful Canadian Rockies, are bush wilderness at it's finest.
Our areas feature Boreal forests with unique combinations of heavy woods, poplar groves and cut lines planted with timothy, alfalfa and bromegrasses. The animals are abundant, healthy, and big!
We have both hunted across western Canada sharing our passion for the outdoors both as good friends and hunting partners. When the opportunity became available to own our own outfitting operation we were ready, excited, and the results have been incredible.
Our goal is to grow Valid Outfitters into one of the finest operations in Alberta with Elk, Moose, Deer, and Black Bear hunting as our specialties. To ensure success we both personally attend every hunt and oversee every aspect of our operation, ensuring the kind of personal attention that results in great hunting experiences for our clients. We are very proud of our operation and we do everything in our power to offer a superior hunting experience.
Valid outfitters is an extra-ordinary hunting operation in a province with incredible hunting opportunities. If you are interested in unspoiled wilderness, hard working guides, great meals and trophies that you will never forget, we are the outfitter for you!

MONSTER BLACK BEAR ARCHERY/RIFLE HUNTING IN ALBERTA CANADA
Our spring bear hunts take place from the last week of April to the second week of June. We accommodate both the rifle hunter and the bowhunter, each having an excellent opportunity to harvest a trophy black bear or two! We have a 2 bear limit allowance in Alberta We also have many color phased bears in our area, ranging from blonde, cinnamon, brown to black. Bears average 6 ft with 7 plus feet being possible.
Our bear hunts take place in the Alberta foothills. These areas are made up of boreal forest, swamps, and muskeg. Our area has an excellent population of black bears and due to how vast this area is the numbers and size of black bears always remains high.
We primarily hunt in stands over bait. If you are up to the challenge, spot and stalk options are always available. We utilize atv's to access the remote area where we bait and hunt. We can combine any of our big game hunts in the fall as well. Try our standard black bear hunting package or give us a call to create a custom hunt. Combinations are limited and taken on a first come first served basis. Don't hesitate to contact us as they go quickly.
Hunters are responsible for arranging their own pre-hunt/post-hunt food and accommodations while in Edmonton. VALID Outfitters has negotiated excellent accommodation rates with hotels in the vicinity of the Edmonton International Airport providing complimentary airport shuttle service. All hunters will be provided with a list of these Valid Approved accommodations, along with rates and amenities, well in advance of their respective hunts.
All meals and accommodations during our hunts are included in the cost of the hunt.
VALID Outfitters accommodations are top-notch and range from modern Outfitters Tents complete with propane heat and wood stoves, to mobile trailer campers, to the full-comfort of remote lodges and rural cottages.

Our hearty, stick to your ribs meals are plentiful and expertly prepared.
