Title: Moving to Red Deer
Post by: Gil on June 26, 2015, 12:08:00 PM
Hi Gang!!
My family is moving to Red Deer. My wife and two kids will be arriving next week. Myself and another son probably in October. We are coming from the Philippines and I am already shivering just thinking of winter. Hope I can get to meet some of you guys, maybe shoot a few arrows and hunt. Will need all the help I can get knowing hunting regs and such, and sourcing supplies. Anybody from the Red Deer area?  Cheers!!
Gil

Welcome to Canada, you're going to love the winter  :)    I'd suggest looking at taking the hunter education course offered by AHEIA (alberta hunter education instructors association). Then joining a fish and game club to get to know people.  There's also the alberta traditional Bowhunters association....you must know about it because you're in the forum  :)

Hunting in alberta involves a lot of regulations and it's important that you figure them out before going out.  Bet hunting regulation book from a licence insuerer and read it front to back.  You'll be ready to hunt a year after youve moved here I think.
