In November of 2012, my dad and I met up in Canada for what has been the best hunting experience of my life. This was my first guided hunting trip, so I really didn’t know what to expect. Any expectations that I did have were far exceeded by Whiteswan Lake Outfitters. My dad and I chose to have a guide each while in Whiteswan Lake which I will always do when using a guide from now on. Dad, 69 years old and I, 36 years old have very different physical abilities, a big factor when hunting in the mountains. Whiteswan Lake Outfitters tailored each of our hunts to our abilities and preferences. Both hunts resulted in a very nice Mule Deer for each of us. My guide, Chris, and hiked for hours to put glass and stalk deer. This in itself made my Mule Deer trophy all the more important to me. My dad’s hunt with Darryl, one of the owners, involved a combination of spotting from the truck and shorter walks to find the deer. Although our hunting approaches varied, my dad and I thoroughly enjoyed hunting at Whiteswan Lake. I am happy to recommend Whiteswan Lake Outfitters to anyone no matter your age or physical capabilities. In addition to the skilled guides, the food, lodging, organization, hospitality was all five star, and I will be back someday.
