Canadian Countdown - Who's Headed North ?

Postby F250 » Sun Aug 26, 2012 5:14 am

We are leaving for Saskatchewan in 26 days. Truck is all waxed up, trailer is serviced, decoys painted, ammo has arrived, and freezer is nearly full of groceries. The farm family we stay with have begun swathing crops, and their marshes are full of water. Anyone else perparing for the jouney north ?

To: Hanson, Rob ENV
Subject: Re: Hunting question

I have a question again, When we are hunting in Sask and the new rules on e-callers . I’m hunting got dark geese and mallards and snow decoys out in the field e caller is on, mallards come in, can I shoot them? I only have snow sounds coming out of e-caller ? Can I shoot Dark geese ? Can I turn it off even if I have it out in the field and shoot them all ? VERY confused ????

Dear War Wagon;

You can now use any colored decoys (white geese, dark geese, cranes, and ducks) while migratory bird hunting with an electronic caller in Saskatchewan.

The only condition is that the electronic caller can only be snow goose vocalization.

You can shoot any birds that come into your set for which there is an open season and that you are licensed to hunt, so yes, you can shoot dark geese
Rob

If you have any other questions or require further clarification, feel free to contact me at 306-787-0037 or email rob.hanson@gov.sk.ca

Headed to Manitoba on Oct 17th through Nov 4th. Freelancing the trip, first time going so anyone with any info I would appreciate it. Done alot of research and have alot of good ideas of areas to hunt,but would love some feedback from people who have actually been there before and their experiences. Taking water and field setups to be ready for anything. Hopefully this trip will turn into an annual trip for our group of guys.
a slow day duck hunting is better then any day at work!
