Though pronghorn once ranged deep into Canada, Southern Alberta is about as
far north as they go these days. And in the expanse of some of Canada’s last natural
grasslands, the distances you’ll have to go to find them will test your optics,
your stamina, and your fence-climbing skills.
The distances will also test your stalking ability and, with wind a near constant,
your marksmanship over open range. When you connect, your lungs
will tell you that you’ve earned it. You can admire the buck for the moment,
but there’s work to complete before the long walk back.
Nick Trehearne, who’s from British Columbia, hunted Southern
Alberta with Lane Miller. See
