Recommend an outfitter

Postby luke835 » Sat Dec 25, 2010 1:35 am

Hey all, My Dad and I are planning a father son trip for next season. We've been discussing the idea of heading to Canada for a goose/duck hunt. I live in South Dakota so we are thinking either Manitoba or Saskatchewan. Has any buddy had a good hunt up there and could recommend an outfitter?

You'll get more bang for your buck in Manitoba, plus it is a lot closer to SD.

I am an outfitter in Manitoba and would love to show you around our province. I can furnish references upon request. The dog i retired last had 1723 water retrieves! We hunt where the ducks are and we havae a huge network of scouts, farmers, friends, relatives and other acquaintances that alwaya have an eye out for waterfowl. It's simple, If the ducks aren't there, we move to where they are. The group I personally guided from Texas last year shot 80 ducks and 3 geese in 5 days of hunting. The ducks weren't where they usually are so we had to move to another spot and that spot had less geese. Our fields produced very well and the birds hung around late (snows too) with the mild weather. We have TONS of water and farmland in Manitoba that is virtually unhunted. I am new on this site so as soon as I can figure out how to upload some pics, I will.

If he only shot 80 ducks and 3 geese in 5 days i would not waste my time hunting with this outfitter, I freelanced sask and in 6 days we shot over 250 ducks and 50 honkers and 4 snows, we figured out the time we acually spend in the field and it was less then 25 hours, you could shoot more birds then that jumping ponds in manitoba in 5 days.

There is more to a guided hunt then just kill totals. Besides; Not a very nice thing to do to a guy trying to make a living .

I know that but when your paying good money to go on a hunt it kinda comes down to birds, its kinda hard not to have fun anywhere out west just watching the migration and i honestly dont care about numbers one bit, but when someone is looking for a good guide hes looking for someone to put him on birds i would think, You never hear anyone say we had a terrible time, our guide put us on to many birds, but I have heard we had the worst time, our guide didnt know anything we didnt shoot many birds it sucked, I know people are trying to make a living but the truth hurts sometimes, not everyones cut out to play in the NHL or NFL and some guys arent made out to guide hunters. Just my 2 cents

I'm picking up what your putting down. I have heard a couple of good ones. had a buddy that went out to Saskatewan and sat down for supper with his hosts. when he asked about where they would be hunting the host said they were waiting for word from a buddy, and when that someone arrived, it became obvious that scouting wasn't on the agenda! Needless to say the trip didn't work out how he had hoped.

Sounds like an interesting way to go price is right and the location is good just north of where I hunt in Sask.

I think you should include what state you are coming from and the type of guys in your group
ie age and hunting experience and the final destination which is in East Central Saskatchewan A'rville not Saskatoon and the hunting is great because that area gets the birds 0ne week before I get a chance to swat them. This year the harvest might be two weeks late as the farmers have not been able to get into the fields for planting and there may be fewer cereal crops because canola is going to be more popular, so mid october might be good right after the full moon starting oct 14. I'll be in the area first week of Oct with my son. Out of curiosity can the Outfitter pair you up with experienced strangers or do you have to have two more guys for a special cost sharing.

We are still looking for someone to join our group in October..

The ages of our group is between 45-50 and many have hunted in Canada for three years now and most of us have 25 plus years experience in hunting ducks and geese. Our group is coming from CA and we will all hunt together as one group. It is an amazing time as Rem stated in his earlier post and the birds are everywhere that time of year.

If you want to join our group please PM me and I can send pics and more information. I assure you the only reason we have an opening is that one guy lost his job and can't afford a trip this year....All hunts food license and stamps plus bird cleaning isincluded in the outfitters price....

Hope to hear from you soon
