Wild Kakwa Outfitters Hunting Stories

Great bull moose from south of Grande PrairieDavid Ryan - 2001 Moose/Elk Hunt

While coming to moose hunt I opted to purchase an elk tag from Rick. I was fortunate to get my moose early in the hunt, but what a moose it was! A 49.5 inch monster! There was plenty of help to get the moose out, and the four wheeled drive quads and trailer worked better than one could imagine.

The guides are first rate and give 100%, even when they are tired. After I harvested my moose we started hunting for elk. We saw approximately twelve elk during this hunt, four of which were bulls. Jake, my guide, found this incredible spot and early in the evening of the same day, I harvested this 6X6 elk at 25 yards! Thank you Rick and Jake!

6X6 Elk at 25 yardsI have been to different outfitters in the past, but have never been to one like Rick Houweling and Wild Kakwa Outfitters. The campsite is clean, the bunk tents have wooden floors and heaters, and there is a shower tent to keep you clean and stink free.

Rita Houweling makes sure you have plenty to eat. She is an incredible cook and prepares three meals a day with good coffee. All the hunters come to hunt and discussions around the dinner table are a lot of fun. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and willing to be flexible to suit your needs. To finish off this wonderful experience, we got to see the aurora borealis. This trip was great and I highly recommend Rick Houweling and Wild Kakwa Outfitters.
