Double Diamond Wilderness Hunts
We have guided many successful
whitetail deer & mule deer hunts, black bear hunts, wolf and
coyote hunts over the years. Be sure to read what our hunters
had to say about their experiences with Double Diamond Wilderness

I have now hunted with Jeremy 5 times for whitetail and mule deer, using both bow and rifle. He is as hard working an outfitter as you will ever meet. His effort in pre-scouting and then getting you on quality animals is phenomenal. He knows his territory like the back of his hand, knows exactly where animals will be naturally traveling or heading after being located, and is very hands-on. His concern over stand approach, scent control, and prevailing winds is obsessive and compulsive - EXACTLY what it takes to be successful for the hunter. He will only hunt specific stands when all of the conditions are right. On one particular hunt for only 2 of us in bow season, he had 16 stands set so all possibilities would be covered for wind conditions, time of day, and animal species. A ton of work !
On top of all this, I have seen first-hand that Jeremy is a talented woodsman, a wonderful husband and father, and someone that you simply don't want to disappoint as your guide as he tries so damn hard for your success. His attitude is excellent, and he will work with you to see your dream hunt come true. Because of his ethics and skill, he sets an awesome example. You cannot go wrong with him. I have hunted all across North America, and I can honestly say that Jeremy is a shining star and my favorite guide. I hope to be hunting at his side for many years to come.

Jeremy and the crew at DDWH were awesome. These guys know what they're doing! They believe in providing a good quality animal with proper management. The crew was very accommodating and super friendly. Oh and the food! The camp cook can make a gourmet meal out of anything. I thought a week in the woods will help this fat man lose some weight... Well, I thought wrong. I highly recommend Jeremy Hatala and the DDWH crew.

This was my first guided hunt ever and I really did not know what to expect. I was told by a fellow hunter and friend “ that encouraged and accompanied me on this trip” that Jeremy was the hardest working guide that he knew. After my first day in camp, I knew exactly what Jeremy expected and what I could expect from him. With deep snow mounting Jeremy worked extremely hard getting his hunters into places that others would have given up on. I went into this hunt hoping for either a B & C or something very unique. As you can see by the photo it was the latter, and I knew the second I laid eyes on this buck I was going to take him home. I cannot thank Jeremy enough for a great experience and cannot wait to hunt with him again.

I would just like to say a big thanks to everyone for making my brothers and my trip so enjoyable. I cannot say enough about the way everything was handled from the initial inquiry to the return to the airport after a successful trip. I look forward to coming back and hunting with you again, maybe next time with the bow since my buck was taken in bow range!

I have hunted with Jeremy and his crew several times, and while all hunts don’t turn out as you would like, it’s never been from lack of knowledge, commitment and effort of DDWH. I have enjoyed every hunt and never been disappointed. Looking forward to returning North for my next hunt this year and for as many more as the good Lord allows me.
||Judy McLean TX USA
Thank you again for the many memorable hunts I have had DDWH, not only the trophies I have harvested, but the opportunity to enjoy the animal behavior and activity that your hunts have provided. Your proven expertise in the field and determination to satisfy each clients experience is second to none; it is this commitment that provides such high quality hunts. Guides Trevor and Franck have shown knowledge and ethics that are unsurpassed, and Gwen’s talent in the kitchen with awesome meals loved by all. This sums up why I have and will be returning again and again to hunt with DDWH.

I bow hunted with Jeremy for the first time this last October (2013). My goal was to shoot a P&Y buck, 125 inches or better....and did I! During the course of my 6 day hunt, I passed on several bucks and had a couple of great encounters with bigger deer. Then on the 5th evening it all came together. This 151 inch 8-pointer appeared like a ghost with just minutes of shooting light remaining and my dream of harvesting a really good whitetail buck had been realized. Jeremy really knows these deer, his outdoor skills are awesome and the private property he hunts is close by. Can't wait to come back and do it all again. The hunters' quarters at Jeremy's lodge are roomy, comfortable and the food tasty and plentiful. And breaking bread with Jeremy's family was a delightful add on. I would recommend Jeremy to anyone who is interested in a true Alberta hunt.......he's the man!!!

Let's get right down to it
.if you want bears in a gene
pool that produces monster bears - then bar none
camp is it! Be ready for lots of quad-running and be ready
for multiple bear action. The time goes by fast when you have
5 bears on bait! Just put me in front of monster bruins and
that's what the big guy did - every afternoon hunt had nonstop
action!! Take it from me - a bowhunter/professional videographer
who has been to over 50 bear camps, with over 25 bears harvested
can honestly say that i have tried the rest
..now i know
i have hunted with the best!

In the spring of 2008 I had the
opportunity to hunt black bears in the Boreal Forest Region
of Alberta, Canada with Jeremy Hatala and Double Diamond Wilderness
Trails Outfitters. Having become friends with Jeremy through
my work in wildlife conservation, I decided it was time to
go and hunt with him. Jeremy is a good supporter of wildlife
conservation fundraising efforts so it only made sense that
I hunt with someone that believes in working for the betterment
of wildlife - plus, he has one heck of a track record for
taking big bruins! Everyone saw lots of bears with some dandy's
taken. As for myself, I took two large mature males with one
squaring 6'10" and the other 6'7". The weather was fantastic
with highs near 75 degrees Fahrenheit - perfect for bear hunting.
I look forward to returning to Jeremy's camp for more bear
adventures in the near future.

I first teamed up with Jeremy on a BC sheep hunt in 2004.
I had the pleasure of spending a couple weeks hunting Stone
Sheep, Elk and Moose with Jeremy. Successfully I might add!
I was nothing but impressed with his knowledge of game and
dedication to making my hunt as enjoyable as possible. His
profesional approach to all aspects of the hunt made for an
exciting and memorable experience. During this time time I
learned of his own operation in Alberta and the possibility
of 2 openings in 2005. Without hesitation I told him I would
take both slots if they were offered and that led to another
successful archery deer hunt in 2005. Even with the un-usually
high temperatures that kept the big boys in their beds, Jeremy
was able to get me on 2 shooter bucks, I was able to get the
job done on a nice 140 class buck. When jeremy tells you he
personally attends to each hunt (hunter) you can be assurred
he means it. I highly recommend Double Diamond for any and
all hunts Jeremy offers.

Have hunted with Jeremy Hatala for 5 years. I have hunted
whitetail, coyotes and sheep with Jeremy. I have always had
a great hunt. I would recommend Jeremy and his outfit to anyone.
Jeremy will work hard to get you the animal you came to get.
He makes sure you are getting what you paid for. I took a
nice drop-tine deer in 2005, and the 2004 season i took a
174 class whitetail. My wife has been very pleased with Jeremy
also and has had a great time at his place. We both have done
well and we are looking forward to our next hunt with Jeremy,
in 2007.we both have no problem with recommending anyone to
hunt with them. We have always seen plenty of deer, and have
turned down a few looking for the bigger one and did not regret
it. Also, Jeremy is not a bad cook but let's face it his wife
from Jacksonville, Florida
I have hunted with Jeremy at
Double Diamond Wilderness Trails for 4 years and had 4 years
of great hunts. Each time I have taken a nice whitetail. 2005,
I took a 165 class whitetail and a 180 class mule deer. Jeremy
is a lot of fun to hunt with, but is also very serious on
getting you your deer. I would recommend Jeremy highly too
anyone. His outfit is top notch and he will make sure that
your hunt is exceptional. Jeremy will put 100 percent into
your hunt. His number one goal is to get you your deer. The
food is great and I look forward to many more years of hunting
with Jeremy. I have also hunted black bears with Jeremy. I
killed a 6'9" black bear. I had a great hunt and had
a great time in bear camp. I saw 5 bears and killed out on
the second day of the hunt. The friends that went with me
killed out a day or so later. We still talk about it all the
time. You can't go wrong with Double Diamond Wilderness Trails
and Jeremy Hatala.
from Pelham, NH
I've hunted with many outfitters over the last 15 years in
the US & CA. A few years back I finally found an Outfitter
who had what I was looking for, an honest fair chase hunting
experience with a high success rate on trophy animals. While
hunting with an outfitter in BC in 98' I met Jeremy who had
an outfitting business of his own. After talking with Jeremy
over the course of the hunt (he was not my guide but was always
helping other hunters & guides in camp) it was obvious
he knew his business. My father and I booked a whitetail hunt
the following year with Jeremy, and since that hunt we have
not hunted with anyone else. Every hunt has been a great experience.
I've taken black bear (1 color phase), huge whitetail &
mule deer, 2 beautiful wolves (white and classic grey) and
I am headed back this fall. But I'm ticked off, as more and
more of you find out what I know, its becoming harder to book
a hunt given the limited openings Jeremy has to maintain the
quality of his hunts.
from Calgary, AB CAN
Jeremy is without a doubt the hardest working guide/outfitter
I have ever had the pleasure to hunt with. He knows bear hunting
and during my hunt all 4 hunters in camp had multiple opportunities
over the week to harvest a beautiful northern Alberta spring
bear from his excellent tree stand setups. The wall-tent camp
was well-equipped including hot showers and the food was plentiful
and first-rate. I would not hesitate to recommend Double Diamond
for our Alberta bear experience. In fact, I might see you
in the spring of 2007 when I will be hunting with Jeremy again.
from Aledo, Texas
I had been looking for one outfitter to fill all my Canadian
hunting needs for several years and then by a stroke of faith
I found Jeremy at Double Diamond. I have hunted exclusively
with Jeremy for the past 5 years and I will only hunt with
Jeremy until I just can't hunt anymore. We have hunted whitetail,
mule deer, moose,bear and coyote and each hunt was outstanding.
I have seen more monster whitetails than most folks see in
a lifetime. Jeremy is extremely knowledgeable on all these
animals he understands their habits and patterns. He is a
professional in every sense of the word. His bear camp is
outstanding and the food is better than anything you will
ever get at grandma's house. Bottom line is this- if you are
tired of spending your hard earned money on outfitters who
just see you as a paycheck and don't deliever good service
or good hunting call Jeremy at Double Diamond. Once you hunt
with Jeremy you will not need to look anywhere else.
My first hunt with Jeremy came in 2002 as a result of a cancellation.
On day one, just after daylight I harvested my spectacular
155" 10 point a perfect buck, and to boot on the last
day we stumbled into a 158' mule deer buck. And yes I too
have been back every year since. I hunted hard this past season
trying to reach the almighty 170"mark. The 2006 season
was very cold with lot's of snow, as many of you may remember.
We hunted 10 days hard, In All I passed on 7 bucks between
145" and 155" 3 of which were solid 155" or
better bucks. I can't remember ever having a better hunt,
the comraderie food and company of the other hunters and to
hunt and enjoy so many great whitetails was elating. "Just
think of those 150" bucks and their horn growth this
year." See ya in camp!
