Why Edmonton, Alberta?

The ‘Texas’ of Canada, Alberta is rich in oil! And with nearly 370,000 hunters in the surrounding western provinces of Canada, this is where the market is!
The Facts about Hunters in Alberta – (2008 Update excluding neighbouring provinces)

  • Annually, there are over 114,000 licensed hunters.
  • 18,000 bow hunters in Alberta.
  • 7,000 youth hunters in Alberta.
  • 8,400 female hunters in Alberta.
  • Average age of an Alberta hunter is 40 years (Male) and 44 years (Female).

Edmonton is the second largest city in Alberta and the economic activity is mostly centered on petroleum; with agriculture, high tech industries, and tourism.

Alberta is one of the strongest outdoor markets in Canada, with 95 species of wildlife, the 2nd largest of any province in Canada, thus creating a very strong hunting fraternity.

In a survey on public opinion 70% of the respondents reported having either a very favourable attitude toward hunting in Alberta (conducted for the Hunting for Tomorrow Foundation). This is good news, as it creates an environment of a hunter friendly province, which means more potential business for you.

The target market for this expo are qualified hunters with both the means and interest to hunt in Africa. In terms of geographical focus, marketing efforts are being concentrated on the province of Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and the US states of Washington and Montana. There is a large, untapped market in Canada. Canadian hunters are passionate about their sport, but have had little exposure to African hunting opportunities and its affordability.
