Peter W. Esgro - 2008 Whitetail Deer Hunt

To Wild Kakwa Outfitter's,

I would like to thank you both for the great time I had last week at your Deer Camp in the Grande Prairie Region of Alberta. It was truly a trip of a life time.

Let me start out by saying, there is more to a hunting trip than Harvesting Game, it was truly an Adventure to remember. From Rick's constant scouting from the time he leaves you to the time he picks you up, ( the man really works hard for you, and wants you to fill your tag ) to Rita's awesome cooking, ( she makes you feel right at home, Thanks Mom, lol ) and to my new hunting friends ( see you next year Neal ). Even tho I didn't harvest a deer, ( do to my choice and mistakes ) the opportunity to harvest a Great Alberta Buck in the 180 class was all around me.

On the first day of my hunt, we arrived in an area where Rick had been scouting out and seeing lots of signs of big bucks. After checking the wind direction, to see if we could get into this area, Rick had me placed in a blind on a pipe line. A short time later the adventure had begun, a nice 10 pointer had come out just 50 yards from me, about 130 to 140 class, 3 ½ year old buck. Being the first day of my hunt, I past on this buck and glad I did. At the end of day 1, about 4:45 PM, back in the truck, Rick spotted a deer. At over 400 yards away, it took my breath away, the body size was incredible, after glassing him this is the buck I wanted. A true Alberta Big Buck, in the 180 plus class with drop tines heading to the blind I just got out of.

I hunted this buck for 5 days. and seen him 3 times, and he never gave me the opportunely to harvest him. This is hunting, this is the "Adventure" I was looking for.

Thank you, ( see you next year )
Peter W. Esgro
