Type of Deer
Located in East Central Alberta about 100 miles Northeast of Edmonton, Diamond Willow Trophy Hunts is situated in one of the best trophy white-tailed deer areas in the world. Mature bucks in our region have little trouble averaging 150 Boone and Crockett points with many scoring much higher. Non-typical points and heavy antler mass are common characteristics on many of these deer. Body size of bucks taken averages 280 lbs. but occasionally tops 350 lbs.
The Outfitter
At Diamond Willow we live and farm year round in the area that we hunt and know it well. Big bucks are patterned on an ongoing basis and many shed antlers are found each spring. We have consistently achieved one of the best success rates in Alberta on trophy class deer and attribute this to knowledge, hard work and an excellent area. If you are a true white-tail fanatic, this is the place for you!
 
The Guides
At Diamond Willow we hunt during every available minute of legal time. Our experienced guides, most of which are farmers in the area, work hard to ensure your success.
Hunting Techniques
