Provincial Hunting Day

September 25, 2021

Alford Lake and Calgary Firearms Centre

The fourth Saturday of every September has become a special date within Alberta. In 2007, the Alberta Government declared this day each year to be Provincial Hunting Day. This year’s event will take place on September 25, 2021. It marks the 15th annual Provincial Hunting Day and is a reminder to all Albertans of our hunting heritage, and of the importance of securing a future for wildlife and wild places, especially within our province.

This year the Alberta Hunter Education Instructors’ Association is celebrating the Provincial Hunting Day at our Alford Lake AND our Calgary Firearms Facility. 

AHEIA and Hunting for Tomorrow are offering a daylong event at Alford Lake for those who want to explore the outdoors and expand their shooting and hunting knowledge.  A partial listing of the sessions we are working on are Crossbow Basics, Shotgun Shooting Basics, Centerfire Rifle Shooting, Rimfire Rifle Shooting, Archery Basics, Black Powder Shooting, Making Your Own Survival Kit, Make a Moose Call, Whitetail Hunting Techniques, Trapping Basics and Outdoor Cooking. 

AHEIA will also be hosting a daylong Provincial Hunting Day event at our Calgary Firearms Centre in De Winton in conjunction with the 20th Annual Pheasants Forever Youth/Novice Fall Shoot (ages 12 and up). On site shotgun coaching, provided by certified AHEIA instructors, will be on hand so participants can try trap, skeet and 5 stand shooting.  Archery, along with a variety of other activities, will also be available.

Choose your sessions on site the day of the event (as space permits). All sessions are hands on and provide the opportunity to learn by doing. This event is completely free and is fun for the whole family!

We will also be providing a complimentary lunch, snacks, and beverages at both locations.

Space is limited and you must pre-register for both event locations. Please register for Alford Lake by September 15, 2021 and Calgary Firearms Centre by September 22, 2021.

This event is subject to any AHS COVID protocols that may be in place.
