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.
Did a 3 day hunt for Sharptail and Hungarian Partridge based in Cabri Canada. The hunting was amazing. Knowledgeable guides, beautiful countryside, and lots of Huns. The hunting was varied from longer walks in the countryside to short runs around abandoned farmsteads. The Huns in particular made for very exciting shoots with explosive covey bursts. Accommodation is basic but in a very friendly small town.
I have hunted with Dave on 3 trips now (one in Saskatchewan and two in Arizona) and each one has been spectacular. It is obvious that Dave really does his homework on his hunting areas and spends the necessary time scouting so that when his clients arrive he knows where the birds are. I have had bird dogs my whole life and have been around literally hundreds of them over the years and Dave's dogs are some of the best around. Great conversation when in between coveys too! If you are looking for a great bird hunting experience, you're done looking. Dave is the guy!
Dave and his team always do a great job when it comes to upland birds and waterfowl hunts. I've been lucky enough to hunt with Dave in Cabri 3 times and have always had good bird numbers and beautiful places to hunt. If you haven''t seen the waterfowl migration through Saskatchewan, that is something to see in and of itself. Dave will go the extra mile to give you the hunt you are looking for.
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.
