Whitetail Deer Hunts in Saskatchewan
Hunting for Whitetails
Located right where the forest meets the ag land, our whitetail hunt takes you to the fringe-land of north western Saskatchewan. In these fringe-land timbers are pockets of deer that have been left to grow and mature to their full potential. They have the benefit of the farmland food sources to help them develop as well as the heavy bush to take cover, these are the deer that we are looking to hunt.
Your early morning begins at the lodge where you will wake up to a hot breakfast, pack your gear and lunch into your day pack and make the trip on ATV to your blind. Once in the blind, all of that waiting and patience pays off when you see a buck walk into your sights and make that perfect shot
Whitetail Deer Clothing List
When hunting Saskatchewan in the fall, temperatures can range from 32F to -20F (0c to -30c). Layering your clothing is of the utmost of importance. Do not bring just one heavy jacket. Your first layer should contain moisture wicking abilities (synthetic). Additional layers should be made of wool and or synthetic materials such as fleece. The number of layers will depend on everyone’s tolerance to the cold. Do not skimp on your clothes. (It is important for our clients to hunt from “dawn to dusk”, as a good number of our bucks are taken in the middle of the day).
- Hand Warmers – Your hands and feet are the most difficult to keep warm. Bring plenty of chemical hand and foot warmers.
- Socks – Layering your socks is also important.Start with a thin moisture wicking synthetic (polypropylene) sock underneath a heavier wool sock
- Boots – Bring the best ones you can afford with the coldest rating you can find.See “Saskatchewan Pac Boot” from Cabela’s for an example. Leave plenty of room for the addition of a chemical foot warmers.
- Mitts/Gloves – There are 2 good options here, mitts or a hand muff.Large mitts big enough to allow for chemical hand warmers as well as a thin pair of gloves are the first option.A hand muff worn around the waist with a couple of hand warmers inside, along with a thin pair of gloves is also a good way to go.
- Hat/Toque – Any hat used for hunting must be solid red or orange.This is Saskatchewan law.We recommend a wool stocking cap (toque) that covers the ears with or with out a face mask.For ultimate coverage, try a thin balaclava underneath your wool cap.
- Outer Garment – An outer orange vest or white, yellow or red jacket is required by law for rifle hunters.
