Deer Hunt

Of the five deer species found in Canada, White-Tail Deer are the most sought after by hunters. They are typically found in fields and meadows, relying on clusters of brush and trees for shade. During the winter, they typically prefer forested conditions to take shelter from the cold Canadian climate.

Whitetails get their name from their trademark white tail they raise in the air when sensing danger. They are extremely cautious animals with a powerful sense of smell, sight and hearing. This makes them one of the more challenging animals to hunt. The allure of a rare beast, combined with impressive antler mounts, make them a popular choice for venison lovers and big game hunters alike.
