Located North West of Calgary near Caroline, Alberta – Savage Encounters finds it’s home nestled at the base of the eastern foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Hilly and swampy terrain with good cover of large pines and aspen guarantee that potential game reach maturity; this area is known worldwide for excellent trophy game.

Chad "SAVAGE" Lenz has been professionally guiding since 1994 and addicted to hunting in the wild since taking his first gopher prior to school (he took his first big game animal at age 14).

Chad grew up near the Alberta Rockies and has been an avid hunter and trapper for 40 plus years. He has always been very successful in the woods and such his early hunting buddies gave him the nickname "SAVAGE". Guiding was second nature as Chad was always taking friends and family on hunting adventures before making this his profession. Today guiding, outfitting and hunting for all species is his passion. Chad has a grand slam of Sheep and a very rare North American 29 Super Slam!



Our areas are primarily Wilderness, a Bighorn mecca as it is one of the hardest areas to access in the Southern Alberta Bighorn range, thus producing big Mature rams.



Looking for big Canadian bull moose, check us out. We have trophy moose 40”-55” and have seen larger. 



Black bear hunting is the ultimate thrill and with a high success rate and 2 bear limit, bear hunting is a sure-fire way to have a “Savage Encounter”. 



Elk are awesome, the most majestic of the deer species, and in my opinion the most exciting and challenging hunt you can go on.  In our area we have elk in the 260”-350” class.



Alberta is renowned for its large deer:

Whitetail: tipping the scales at well over 300 lbs, 130"-200" Class

Mule Deer: 140" - 200" Class



Wolves are the “Ghosts of the Rockies”, and Alberta’s hardest trophy. They are big (up to 180 lbs) and smart, these crafty canines don’t come easy, but well worth the patience.
