Alberta's caribou proved to be the craftiest of the provinces big game species while antelope were the easiest marks for hunters in the 1973-74 season, statistics from the Department of Lands and Forest show. Only 45 of the 393 hunters who took out permits on caribou actually bagged an animal, a success average of only 5.8 per cent. In contrast, 64 per cent of antelope chasers got what they were after, with 695 successes out of the 1080 permit buyers. The second toughest target "was the fearsome grizzly bear. Hunters 'in Alberta managed to bag only eight of the creatures, despite the fact that 217 hopefuls headed into the woods in search of grizzlies. Bighorn trophy sheep provided tots of problems for the hunter, although sheep of the :non trophy variety were relatively unchallenging. Out of 1324 trophy permits 134 animals were brought in, for an average success rate of only 9.7 per cent. Non trophy hunters were far more successful, with 93 of 299 hopefuls going home satisfied. Whitetail deer and moose permits were one two in pop- ularity last year, with hunters setting out after the whitetail and looking for the moose.
