This is the WHITE TAIL DEER HUNT FOR YOU!
YOU WILL SEE A LOT OF WHITE TAIL DEER during this hunt! We consider our success rate 100% - but we also need to tell you that not everyone harvests an animall!!! The reason for this is that the majority of our hunters have hunted with us for MANY years and they will turn down a 150 - 160 class deer only because they have taken a bigger animal with in a previous year! It is important to note the EVERYONE SEES WHITETAIL DEER AND HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHOOT AND EVEN MORE IMPORTANT IS THAT EVERYONE HAS FUN!!
Baiting for deer is still allowed in Saskatchewan and you know that we have been hard at work on this long before the season starts. EVERYBODY GETS A FRESH TREE STAND AND EVERYBODY GETS AN ACTIVE TREE STAND. The stand is removed as soon as an animal is harvested so that only one animal per stand is taken. This shows our commitment not only to our hunters but also to our animals and to our business!
You will see a lot of REMOTE, RUGGED HUNTING AREA! Lots of wildlife - white tail deer, mule deer, moose, beaver, timber wolf, elk etc. One thing you should NOT see is a lot of people .... you may see an occasion local hunter walk through (especially during moose season) but that is quite a rarity!
We take you right up to your stand... ANYONE CAN DO THIS HUNT!! We have 4 wheel drive trucks and all terrain vehicles (quads, six wheelers and an Argo) to get you where you want to be. At times, we may need to drive 15-35 miles by truck and then the all terrain vehicles come out and YOU WILL BE IN THE MIDDLE OF BIG BUCK COUNTRY!!
We skin & freeze your trophy in preparation fo take home ... we have a large walk in cooler & freezer to look after the meat properly..... and NO TROPHY FEES!
We provide A QUALITY GUIDED HUNT. We have the knowledge combined with the experience to make sure that your hunting experience is second to none! Our guides are the best. They are experienced, courteous, knowledgeable and fun to be with!!
You will be talking about the good times you had here for years to come!!!
The hunting is done by rifle or muzzleloader. Just let us know your preference and we will set your tree stand up accordingly.
White tail Deer of all sizes will be seen coming into the bait. According to experience - everyone should see
at least 140+ class bucks (remember Mother Nature also has a hand in this game so no guarantees - but isn't that the "joy" of this sport!). Now comes your job - you make the decision! Sweaty palms and thumping heart, you wait for the BIG BUCK to come just a little closer and .............!!

We offer an exciting 5 1/2 day hunt.
Guests take care of transportation to camp. We suggest flying into Saskatoon, Saskatchewan - our camp is approximately 3 - 3 1/2hour drive from there or, also look at the airport in Edmonton, Alberta - our camp is approximately 4 - 4 1/2 hour drive. It seems that the best way of booking flights is now on-line. We want to suggest that you not get a flight that takes you into the Toronto Airport... many of our hunters have had poor experiences there. Try to fly straight into Saskatoon or Edmonton ... they have more experience with hunters and a hunter's needs (and baggage).
Tree stands are baited daily (& we start baiting LONG before you arrive).
FRESH tree stand for EVERYBODY! The tree stand is removed as soon as an animal is harvested so that only one animal per stand is taken. This shows our commitment not only to our hunters but also to our animals and to our business!
Each stand has a VHF radio so that you will constantly be in touch with your guides and your hunting friends—you know that you will want to BRAG as soon as your bring down that BIG ONE!
Bring your camera/video camera—there are tripods in the stands for your cameras.
Tree stands are of metal construction. Ken had personally designed and constructed the stands so that they are as comfortable and efficient as possible. He did not like climbing “tree pegs” and so has built the stands with safer and more convenient ladders.
The tree stands are heated—you will appreciate this on those “nippy” days.
We skin and freeze your trophy in preparation to take home
