About hunting in Saskatchewan
Some of the largest white-tailed deer in the world live in the western Canadian province of Saskatchewan. The deer grow big here thanks to the minerals in the province’s fertile soil, the abundant habitat, and superior genetics. Saskatchewan is considered a mecca for white-tailed deer hunting. The record typical whitetail from Saskatchewan scored 214 4/8 B&C points, while the non-typical record stands at 265 3/8. These deer are also some of the largest whitetails in the world in terms of body size. Good numbers of black bears also roam the province, and they can be hunted in both spring and fall. Plenty of moose are found in the boreal forests, rounding out Saskatchewan’s exceptional big-game hunting opportunities. Covering 251,700 square miles consisting mainly of prairie grassland in the south and boreal forest in the north, the province of Saskatchewan has an estimated 100,000 lakes as well as many streams and rivers, many of them providing exceptional fishing. Saskatchewan is also known for its severe winters, with temperatures plunging to 40 below zero during the coldest periods. Deer hunting in Saskatchewan, which is typically conducted from stands, is not for the faint of heart, but the rewards can be tremendous. Non-residents of Canada hunting on provincial Crown lands or private lands must use the services of a licensed outfitter. Outfitters have allocations for white-tailed deer, moose, and bears in certain wildlife management units. If hunting on First Nation reserve lands, non-residents must have permission from the First Nation Chief and Council, whether or not they are hunting with an outfitter. Canadian residents residing outside of Saskatchewan are only required to hire a guide for moose hunting. The Saskatchewan Outfitter Association is a good place to find information on hunting in Saskatchewan and a list of accredited outfitters: www.soa.ca. Saskatchewan also has exceptional hunting for upland birds and waterfowl. Upland game birds include Hungarian partridge, ptarmigan, sharp-tailed, ruffed, and spruce grouse. Waterfowl species include large flocks of geese, sandhill cranes, and many species of ducks.

Whitetail Deer Hunt Canada
Our area spans over 100,000 acres of prime trophy whitetail deer habitat on Saskatchewan's forest/ farmland fringe located north of the town of White Fox, Saskatchewan. The area boasts incredible genetics including the largest whitetail non-typical ever harvested in Saskatchewan, a 257 3/8" monster taken by Elburn Kohler in 1957. Since then there have been numerous Boone and Crockett registries from the area including a trophy whitetail buck harvested by a client of ours, that had a net non typical score of 205". Our main way of hunting is over active bait sites out of ground blinds and elevated blinds depending on the terrain of each individual location. All of our 35+ bait sites are equipped with trail cameras to maximize our scouting and ultimately give our hunters the best opportunity at harvesting a trophy whitetail buck of a lifetime. In combination with an intense baiting and scouting routine we will not overharvest our area but rather run only as many hunters as our mature trophy whitetail deer population can support, as well as promoting only the harvest of mature whitetail bucks to ensure our young bucks can reach their full potential. Our team will do everything in our control to not only ensure your successful in the field but also that your hunt is an enjoyable experience through every aspect.
