We are “North American Hunt Club” NAHC recommended and have a high percentage of repeat hunters; we are very proud of both these points.

Eric Rauhanen

A top Alberta Outfitter-Guide, Eric has been guiding professionally since 1988. He is an experienced bow hunter and a member of the Pope & Young Club having taken P & Y class Black Bear, Whitetail Deer, Antelope and Mule Deer. Eric’s guided hunts are not only enjoyable but a personal learning experience. His hunters are very successful and always satisfied.


Our policy is to provide the best in personal attention and safety. We allow only two hunters per guide and even offer one-on-one hunts for the hunter who is intensely after a color phased or exceptionally large trophy. All our guides are experienced bear hunters and are extremely motivated. They’re there because they want to make your hunt a success.


Silver Fox Outfitters maintains a complete fleet of ATV’s and a jet boat to get you to your bait site. For our bow hunters we have a tree stand with a 3-D bear target as well as a string making jig, arrow fletching jig and a bow press.

Trophy Preparation

Our guides ensure all game is properly skinned and prepared for your taxidermist. We also have locally recommended taxidermists. He provides a valuable service for those clients wishing to have their trophy prepared here. We’ll provide his information and a reference list to all clients.


Our bait hunting area is located near the remote town of High Level in the beautiful boreal forest area of northwestern Alberta (WMU 534, 535, and 536) We spot and stalk hunt in non-baiting areas (WMU 537) south of High Level as well as in the west central area of Alberta near the town of Edson (WMU 340, 342, and 346).


Over the years we’ve had many hunters bring their wives or a family member with them. All enjoyed every minute of their time here in game rich Alberta & many are on our reference list. We encourage hunters to bring a guest with them. After all, this is an experience of a lifetime. The cost of having a family member along is very reasonable.


Hunters are accommodated at either one of the main tent camps or remote spike camps; this depends on which hunt the hunter chooses. Tent camps consist of large wall tents with wood stoves and comfortable cots. The main camp has shower facilities.


All on-site meals are prepared in our main camps by our full-time cook. If you have any special dietary requirements, please let us know in advance so that we can ensure these items are available.


Your hunt includes all on-site transportation. You will be picked up at the airport in High Level upon arrival, transported as required to hunt and returned to High Level for your trip home. Other options for getting to bear camp include renting a car and driving from Edmonton.
