Eastern Saskatchewan Whitetails #15

Eastern Saskatchewan Whitetails #15

The new owner bought this outfit – (2015) from an outfitter that we had done business with for 15 years. Nothing will change — it will still be the same great hunt for quality whitetail deer and outstanding Black Bear. The new owner is a quality person and will continue to run this outfit as a small, family operation with good home-cooked meals with an emphasis on quality over quantity hunting. The outfitter will have 24 baited deer stands at any given time, but only takes five to six deer hunters per week. This insures that there are plenty of active stands for each group of hunters. They scout (using trail cams) and replenishing the baits while you are hunting. If you’re not seeing game, the outfitter will move you to an active, hot stand. Very low hunting pressure combined with plenty of agriculture in the area means there’s all the ingredients to produce big animals.

The camp is a modern log lodge where meals and bull sessions take place. There’s no smoking inside of any of the buildings, thereby insuring a scent-free environment. The outfitter hunts Zones 49 and 59 located Quality hunting and fishing trips in the U.S., Alaska, Russia, Canada, Africa, Mongolia, China, South America northeast of Saskatoon, not far from the Manitoba border and the famed Carrot River. This area differs from far northern Saskatchewan, because here you are on the fringe of the boreal forest, with plenty of agriculture around, providing great deer and bear habitat and hunting. This is about the only area in Saskatchewan where Americans can hunt near agriculture! About 1200 acres is their own private ground, managed for deer and agriculture; while the rest (16,000 acres) is crown land for their exclusive hunting concession. This is a plus as the private agricultural ground helps attract and hold deer, bear and waterfowl all year round. They transport you by Truck, ATV and Snowmobiles into the area, and then they will walk you into your stand. All during your hunt they will continue to scout for new hot spots, plus they monitor all their trail cams and their other stand locations, all while keeping their Prime locations pre-baited and in great shape. They have some enclosed and heated stands for your comfort. (Heat is used when needed)(Heat is not available with the stands in the Provincial forest.) We like the fact that they are in a One Deer Zone- helping the age structure to stay good and beneficial to growing older deer. Hunts start around Nov 1 and run into first week of December covering the entire rutting period. Everyone has their own theory of best times to hunt the rut. Some like pre-rut on the theory bucks are easier to pattern then. Others like the rut for the wide-ranging buck movements. Some savvy hunters prefer the post-rut for bucks still looking for does. And many others feel Thanksgiving usually marks the peak breeding and chasing time. The late hunts occur when most does have been bred, forcing bucks to move a lot. One thing that everyone does agree on is the colder the better. When it gets cold bucks must chow down on the bait piles; and they also are moving around more. Temperatures above zero seem to generally retard movements. These deer have heavy, heavy coats. You want those sub-zero temperatures! Bow hunting is in its infancy and should be awesome.

2017: Black Bear Hunts: The outfitter offers exceptional spring bear hunting for better-than-average bruins. A few years ago a client took a 544-pound boar with a bow! Plenty of color- phase bruins including chocolate, cinnamon, and blonde. The outfitter takes a very limited number of bear hunters. Combine that with the fact the bear population is high, add to that the fact that size is well above average, add in nearly 100% opportunity to harvest a mature bear and you have the ingredients of an outstanding hunt. NOW- Add to this the fact that the price is a very reasonable $2,400 and that includes your license and the GST tax! We like this hunt and this outfitter’s operation a lot! May/June is good for bear. Everyone we have sent here over the last dozen years has killed a good bear. The trail cams prove that there are plenty of bears to choose from. They run a Six Day Guided Black Bear Hunt (Monday – Saturday). They take a maximum of 5 Bear Hunters a week; and often only 1 or 2 are in camp!
