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!
