Saskatchewan Upland Bird Hunting Guides

Saskatchewan Upland Bird Hunting is nothing new to Dave Brown Outfitters. Since 2000 we have Guided Bird Hunters from around the World on Saskatchewan Upland Bird Hunts in the vast and open Prairre of S.W. Saskatchewan. Dave Brown Outfitters holds two Saskatchewan Outfitter Licenses allowing us to Guide Upland Bird Hunters in virtually the entire S.W. Corner of The Province.No other Saskatchewan Upland Bird Hunting Guide/Outfitter has this capability.

The Benefit to our our Saskatchewan Upland Bird Hunting Clients is we have a ton of Private Property to Hunt therefore we are always into “fresh” Birds.It also allows us to move to different areas where if hatches of Hungarian Partridge and Sharptail Grouse are down due to weather at nesting time. Orvis Endorsed Dave Brown Outfitters is also the first and only Saskatchewan Upland Bird Hunting Outfitter to use Pointing Dogs,at test to our commitment to deliver an epic Saskatchewan Upland Bird Hunt to our Clients.If you are looking for an incredible all “wild” Bird Hunt starring this is it.Due to the habitat The Hungarian Partridge Hunting is the best in North America and The Sharptail Grouse hunting is also off the charts.

What our Clients like about our Saskatchewan upland Bird Hunts is the lack of people, the huge vistas and consistent populations of Wild Hungarian Partridge and Sharptail Grouse.

Saskatchewan Upland Bird Species

Saskatchewan is the place to go for Hungarian Partridge Enthusiasts,even in a down year our Saskatchewan Bird Hunting Clients are getting into or seeing 6 coveys per day and in a very good year expect to see double digit coveys of 15 -20 Birds.Sharptail Grouse which is the native Prairie Bird are also found in good numbers, often overlapping with the Hungarian Partridge which is a native to Europe.The Hungarian Partridge where introduced to the Canadian Prairies in 1910 and have thrived ever since their introduction.We also have Ruffed Grouse which are found in the Cypress Hills in extreme S.W. Saskatchewan.

The Terrain and Habitat

Hunters can expect to hunt a variety of Habitats that Saskatchewan Upland Birds call home.These habitats vary from abandoned Farmsteads ,Hedgerows,Coulees,River Breaks,Sand Hills and Slough Bottoms.Upland Bird Hunters can expect to expect to cover some ground however the walking for the most part can be easy or as difficult as you want it to be.To prepare for any Wild Bird Hunt we suggest that you get in decent shape by walking 1-2 miles at a decent pace while wearing your hunting boots.
