Covey Rise -Saskatchewan Upland Bird and Waterfowl Guide

In 2000 Licensed Saskatchewan Upland Bird and Waterfowl Guides and Outfitter Dave Brown made the decision to focus his Wingshooting Endeavors in The Province of Saskatchewan.The attraction was and still is,lack of hunting pressure,great habitat,LOTS of Huns and Sharptails,low population density and easy access from The United States.The “Off The  Charts” Duck hunting might also had something to do with his move.

Having hunted Huns across the Western States and Provinces Dave realized that Saskatchewan was the only North American Wingshooting destination where depending on habitats  Upland Bird Hunters could consistently see 5-12 Coveys of Huns,plus Sharptails per day.
