2011 Saskatchewan Forecast

With the record amount of rain in 2010 ,my guess is 2011 will be dryer ,resulting in good hatches of Huns and Sharptails .Waterfowl Hunting namely Duck hunting should also be excellent as I doubt the sloughs and potholes are going to dry up any time soon .

Arizona Quail Hunts –
The 2010-2011 Arizona Season was one of our best yet, mostly due to the bump in Gambles and Scaled Quail Numbers .My Long term forecast is that Gambles and Scaled Quail Numbers should be the same as this past season ,and due to a predicted decent Monsoon we should see an increase in Mearns Quail
Rates are $800 for 2 hunters and $550 for a single hunter .

A Hunger for Huns

 

Shooting Sportsman July/August 2005
Volume XVII, Issue IV

“Dave originally had contacted me about an Oklahoma quail ranch where he guides in winter, but when I’d visited his Website (www.albertabirdhunts.com), I’d never gotten beyond the Huns. When I later learned of Dave’s shared passions for pointing dogs and double guns, I knew I’d found the cure to my ill.”

Waterfoul

Besides great Upland Bird hunting, the Province of Saskatchewan offers spectacular Waterfowl hunting for a number of species of Ducks, Geese and Sandhill Cranes.

Because our location is in the middle of the Central Flyway staging area we encourage our guests to take full advantage of this resource, as the Waterfowl hunting is nothing short of epic.

We have the equipment and knowledge to make things happen .For our field Goose shoots We have over 300 Decoys a combination of Motion and Shells which gives our quarry confidence in our spread, especially the ever wary White fronts & Snows.

Our Duck spread also consists of Motion Decoys, Shells and Robo ducks. For pothole shoots we have a variety of floating Decoys including Mallard, Pintail and White fronts decoys.

We feel that our Waterfowl hunts add to the overall experience of your trip, and a great way to rest tired legs and at the same time keep your Shotgun Barrel warm.


Note: Waterfowl hunting is a lot better in Saskatchewan therfore we do not offer waterfowl hunts in Alberta
