All hunts at Mackin Outfitting
are professionally guided by me or by one of our experienced guides.
- Not included in the hunt costs are
taxes, tag and licenses, gratuities and meat processing fees.
The meat processing costs are your responsibility and if you choose
not to take the meat for yourself the fee then goes to processing
the meat for donation.
Quite often clients will ask about tipping guides. Gratuities should
be based on the effort your guide puts into your hunt, not if you
get an animal or how big your animal is. The average going rate in
the industry is about 10% of the hunt cost. Gratuities are a good
portion of a guide's income. If your guide takes care of you and tries
hard to get you the trophy you are looking for, let him know at the
end of the hunt that their efforts and skills were appreciated. Remember
this is fair chase hunting and weather conditions and animal activity
are out of your guide's control.

General Hunt Information
The majority of our hunts require
a certain amount of hiking. The better you can prepare yourself physically
the more enjoyable your hunt will be. We recommend bringing supportive
hiking boots for the early-mid season hunts and a warm pair of waterproof
winter boots for late season hunts. A range of clothing is required
for our ever changing weather conditions. During the months of September
and October the temperature can range from 20 -80 F therefore we suggest
layering your clothing. Our November hunt temperatures can range from
15 - 60 F so heavier clothing such as wool or fleece is recommended.
Southern Alberta weather is often accompanied by winds so we suggest
you bring along a wind proof jacket, warm gloves and hat.
If you are planning to book an archery hunt with us please bring
camouflage clothing due to the open terrain in which you will be
stalking your animal. The patterns we recommend are the Kings Desert
Shadow, the Prairie Ghost or Advantage MAX- 1 Open Terrain. If you
are interested in the King's line of camouflage clothing we are
dealers and would be happy to assist you.
Those of you joining us on one of our exciting bow hunts we recommend
that you practice shooting to ranges of 40 + yards. We have targets
here in camp so that you can practice while on your hunt. Due to
the open country we may hunt in we also suggest that rifle hunters
be confident shooting around 300 yards. We provide the opportunity
to check your rifle in case of damage while traveling.
Transportation to our hunting
You will fly into Calgary International Airport. If your flight
arrives in Calgary after 8:00pm or departs Calgary before 10.00

Bringing your trophy home:
If you are planning on bringing your cape and antlers home with
you it is best to bring along an extra duffle bag for traveling.
Also we supply Rubbermaid containers and duct tape for a cost of
$15.00 which can be used for transporting your frozen cape, antlers
and meat. If you choose to leave your trophy here for mounting we
can recommend a quality taxidermist. Cougar hunters please note
an additional cost of attaining a CITIES Permit is required along
with an export permit to get your trophy home.
