Bearpaw Professional Outfitting Services  Peace River Alberta Canada. Guiding for White tailed deer, Black Bear, Moose and Elk.

"Okay" is the best word to describe our 2000 whitetail season. 34 hunters harvested 26 bucks for a 68% success rate. Not bad numbers but no where near as good as we anticipated. Our overall success rate was 67% with an average size of 154 gross. I felt we should have been in the neighborhood of 80% success with an average of 160+, going into the season.

No shortage of big deer, we had nothing but bad luck with 5 very large deer being shot at and lost.

Ken Vaught of Texas took our best buck at 178 gross, 168 net. Extreme mass and long beams made up a good chunk of the score.

Repeat hunters did well this year. Dave Foster took a 29" wide, 168 gross on the third day of his hunt. Jim Moses on his seventh hunt with bearpaw took a 163 gross with rookie guide Gord Lavergue. Bryan King took a 174 non-typical with Chris Gilbert who probably saw more big bucks this fall than anyone else. Jim Nelson scored a nice 160, 5X5 just before he was to leave for home.

Sam Finch and Mike Belosky harvested a pair of 24", 3 1/2 year olds with veteran guide Bowen Dolhon.

Doug Shultz went home with a 177 non-typical with the assistance of guide, Ryan Jones. 22" of the non-typical points on his eye guard make this buck very unique.
