1)  What are the average temperatures??

 

Weather???  Who can predict what it'll be like but we can show you what it's been like over the last several years.  Here is a chart and a few graphs that show the official weather bureau temperatures for Athabasca, Alberta from 1998 to 2004.  Please keep in mind that we hunt from heated blinds and generally you'll only spend minimal time directly exposed to the elements.

2)  What is the area like and where can I get a map?

 

We hunt farm land and bush areas.  Farmland is areas of fields with bush scattered in the fields or large areas of bush adjacent to the farmland.

Bush hunting is typically on cut-lines (gas company or logging operations), cut-over logging area or natural open areas.  
Bush country can be BIG, stretching 10s of miles without a break.

There are road maps and Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) maps available on the web via search but I'll include a picture of our areas here.
