Welcome from Plihal's Frank Lake Guiding Outfitting
First licensed to provide guiding service in 1978 by the Alberta Government, We provide a combination of experience in Gene Plihal and the vitality and youthful exuberance of Emily Plihal, 15 year veteran guide and new co-owner, along with documented rights to hunting area. With 53 allocations (licenses) for moose, black bear, mule deer and whitetail deer, we represent one of the larger outfitters in the Peace/Smoky River area. Boasting 40 years in business without a wildlife or criminal offense, we have one of the cleanest, long standing outfitting records in Alberta. This is four decades with an impeccable record. Equally impressive, we think, is that our business has never been asked to appear before the disciplinary committee of the Alberta Professional Outfitters' Society, and in a business brimming with potential ethics and conduct issues, we think this is an achievement.

6 Day Alberta Black Bear Hunt 2 Bears Canada
Alberta 2 bear baited black bear hunts! Black, chocolate, blonde, cinnamon, brown and mottled colours! We spend a month prior to the hunt ensuring each bait is refreshed in a timely fashion, promising a successful hunt for our clients. You will sit in different stands through the week (we do not keep you in one) and we will rotate where you sit depending on bear activity. Trophy after trophy, giant bears of blonde, cinnamon, brown, chocolate, and, of course, black colour phase. With quality and quantity baits as well as year round scouting of protected hunt sites and monitoring of giant bear movements, our marquee hunt features attention to detail in preparation for your hunt. We put the time in to make sure clients aren't just shooting another bear. Cheaper hunts? Sure, there are some, but the old cliche "You get what you pay for" doesn't only apply to cars. We take a maximum of 18 bear hunters per year and no more than 6 per week in areas we have continually baited since 1988 in our quest to be at the top again for 2017, 2018....

9 Day Moose Hunt Canada
The November hunts for moose are subject to the whim of the weather. We suggest combining November moose hunts with a mule deer hunt in the same zone to ensure a good opportunity to harvest at least one of the animals. Fall moose hunt at our camp in 2018 saw good rut hunt results, as usual, with WMU 523 hunters shooting 4 out of 4 for an impressive 100% fill rate!

Alberta Mule Deer 9 Day Rut Hunt! Canada
CANADIAN SPECIAL DUE TO BORDER CLOSURE - $10018 CAD CANADA RESIDENTS ONLY Alberta trophy Mule Deer hunt in Peace River Alberta Mule Deer Mecca area! World class 180++ world renown MD country! Booking for 2020-21! Think of mule deer and what image immediately pops up? Montana, Wyoming, Colorado deer? Well, maybe, but Alberta is the home of the world record mule deer. And, the Peace Country in Alberta is rapidly being recognized as the place to go for big mule deer. 2017 saw one of the best years ever for our mule deer hunts! Doug Dykstra of Yankton, SD pulled off a spectacular shot on a 176"+ deer on the dead run with one shot! This monarch still has to go through dry score measurement. In the same week with a different hunter another mule deer of similar quality was, unfortunately, missed! Sightings of other great deer made it obvious that quality of mule deer are on the resurgence in our area! Book while you can because we only have two of these premium hunts available! Our allocations for mule deer are in WMU's 523 and 544. WMU 523 is now famous for great mule deer, with $8,500 asking prices common for these hunts. (And for good reason). Contrast this present day situation with that of 15+ years ago in WMU 523 when mule deer allocations could be purchased over the counter for $75!!
