Saskatchewan DIY 2019

Postby PAwaterfowldominator » Mon Jan 07, 2019 8:30 am

I'm looking into trying my hand at a Saskatchewan DIY trip this coming fall. I've done DIY trips in North Dakota the past 5 years but really want to make my way up into Canada this year. I have all the gear that is needed I'm basically looking more for tips on time of the year to go, areas to avoid, areas to look into, lodging options, things to consider, etc.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I've been to SK twice and had a great time both times. We targeted snows and did well our first trip (2016) but not as well on snows the 2nd trip (2017) but hammered the ducks. What you want to pursue will determine where you go and when.

Things to consider is a whole separate conversation. No felonies or DUI's for anyone going. Limit of 200 shells duty free but we've taken much more and not been charged duty on them, just be honest with your border guard. You'll need a license, provincial stamp and federal stamp. If you take a dog, you'll need rabies paperwork with a description of your dog. Cell phone will need a plan of some sort or it gets very expensive. If you have health issues of any kind, look into international health plans. Gas is rather expensive and scouting plays a big part in success so budget accordingly. Food is also expensive so look at what you can take across the border and shop ahead of time unless you plan to eat at restaurants. Housing can also be difficult to find and/or expensive so do your best to line it out ahead of time. Any other questions, feel free to ask here or in a PM.

What he said.


To reiterate, NO Felonies or DUI's, he ain't kidding, they won't get in, they will get escorted back to the border, if they aren't sure of their record, tell them to go the Sheriff's office of wherever they live and get a background check done.

Be aware that Sask has changed their trespass laws---you now have to get permission from the farmers to hunt on their lands, fenced or not. They changed that this year. I believe I Hunter app has Sask landowner maps now.
generally confused is normal. let me know if I ever figure it out.
