The Chinchaga River Valley situated in northwestern Alberta produces some of the finest moose and black bear hunting in all of Canada.

Chinchaga River Hunts is the most experienced guiding and outfitting company in this Northern Alberta Region. As professional outfitters it is our goal to provide our clients with the highest quality hunts, best services and facilities at competitive prices.  Our hunters get the best opportunity to take a moose.  Our trophy is over 50″.  Although not all clients take large bulls, Chinchaga River Hunts consistently take some of the largest bulls harvested from the province each year.

Come out and hunt with us in a remote wilderness area we call the “Amazon of the North”.

We take great pride in offering our hunters an opportunity at quality bulls, and to offer an unequaled hunting experience. 

To ensure that future generations can enjoy our industry, we believe in sound game management practices with minimal footprint to the environment.

Josh and Jamie Harden

Chinchaga River Hunts began almost 25 years ago under the direction of Bob and Tricia Freelend.  For the past 16  years, Josh and Jamie Harden have been valuable members of the Chinchaga team.  From their passion for guiding and the hunting industry, they are now excited to have taken over the operation. When not hunting, they raise and train horses in Big Valley, Alberta where their young family resides. Josh is an avid hunter, and acts as your very experienced outfitter to make each and every hunt run smoothly. Jamie,Tricia’s niece, has a tourism background and looks after all coordination and the cooking.


At Chinchaga River Hunts we hunt in the northwest portion Alberta Canada.

Alberta is located in western Canada as seen on the Canada map. Alberta is joined by Montana to the south, British Columbia, Canada to the west, Saskatchewan, Canada to the east, and the North West Territories to the North. Alberta has a population of approximately 2.9 million people with about one third located in metropolitan Edmonton, one third in metropolitan Calgary and the other one third located in smaller cities, towns and rural areas through out the province.

We hunt in WMU524 which is located 450 miles northwest of Edmonton, Alberta, or 150 miles northwest of Peace River, Alberta along the banks of the Chinchaga River.  This is a very remote area and offers unequalled Moose hunting.  Trophy Bulls will die in this area having never been seen by human eyes.
