We provide first class hunts for both ducks and geese.
Greenhead Adventures truly is waterfowl hunting at its best in Northeastern Alberta.
Situated in Alberta’s Lakeland, this is a major staging and breeding area for many species of ducks and geese.
We offer three-day packages featuring five shoots (morning and evening), three nights’ accommodation and all meals at Bentley Lake Lodge.
The Greenhead Adventures experience is one hunters won’t soon forget.
We pride ourselves on the fact that many of our clients are repeat customers and make the trip north to hunt with Greenhead Adventures each fall. We have many clients that make it a point of coming together once a year and they do it at Greenhead Adventures. Reconnecting with one another, catching up, getting away from it all and sharing their love of the sport of hunting. We’re honored to welcome these friends back annually.
We cater to small groups, five is a perfect fit (but we can do six), with quality hunting a priority. No competing with other groups over shoots – your group will be the only one in camp. Our guides work hard to ensure your experience is first class and you won’t be disappointed.
How we hunt ...
Field shoots over large spreads of decoys is what we offer. We deliver on prime locations, top of the line equipment and plenty of opportunity to shoot, the rest is up to you.
A day in the field …
It’s an early start for a day of hunting at Greenhead Adventures. Set the alarm for 3 a.m. if you’re hunting early season, we will let you sleep till 4 in the late season. Early mornings are cool, the smell of fall is in the air and the thrill of the hunt awaits.
The guides are outside, enjoying a cup of coffee in the warmth of their trucks – the quiet before the storm.
Grab some coffee, water and fill you pockets with snacks - there’s work to be done, decoys to put out and blinds to be set up before the hunt begins. Remember the devil is in the detail – 200 plus decoys later and you’ll understand. Not just any decoys, mind you, full-flocked, full-bodied decoys set out in a perfect spread; Denis’ pride and joy, so be gentle with them! Then there’s the blinds - bale standups, or laydown coffin blinds – you will be in whichever is best suited for the day’s hunt. Don’t get too comfortable because the birds are coming at first light.
Why, you might ask.
To the avid waterfowler, no moment of truth can match the instant when a flock first responds to his call and decoys, the time when this wild, free bird of unsurpassed grace begins a descent from the sky down to gun range. It is a stirring spectacle,” ~ Grits Gresham, The Complete Wildfowler, 1973
“Take ‘em!” This is what you’ve been waiting for! The raucous noise of waterfowl, wings cupped, the flock coming directly in – the sight and sound never disappoints. For first-time field hunters, it’s spectacular and, for the seasoned vets, it’s why they keep coming back.
By mid to late morning, the flocks have headed back to water. It’s also time for you to head back to the lodge to enjoy a full course breakfast as you will be hungry, and eager for some down time, perhaps even a nap. Rest up, because in a few short hours, you’ll be heading out again for the evening shoot.
You will go to a different location for the evening hunt, but the routine is the same. And if the waterfowl like what they see, and your aim is true, you’ll be in for another great shoot. Just before sunset the hunt day is a wrap, equipment is picked up and it’s back to the lodge for a late supper and plenty of storytelling. It’s been a good day and tomorrow awaits!
Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you a hunting license and that’s pretty close!
