FAQS: TROPHY HUNTS
Your chance is still very good, the last hunter in 2016 shot a 283 SCI non-typical and the last hunter in 2017 shot a 234 SCI mostly typical. Now these results aren’t always going to happen but as you can see there is very good opportunity right thru till the end.
We only have one hunt price for hunting in our preserve. Here’s what we tell our hunters: “Only pull the trigger on a deer that you are truly happy with, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
If a hunter is unsuccessful after 4 days of hunting, he will forfeit 50% of the hunt cost and the other 50% will be credited to another hunt. We work very hard to ensure that our hunters are always seeing great quality bucks. Very poor business if our hunters are not happy!
There is no catch, like we mentioned before, these hunts are about the experience and not the score. This is hunting the was it was intended to be. We typically average around 220 inches every season so the chances are quite high that you will see some 200-265+ bucks! We usually take several 300+ whitetails every year also!
Yes, we always factor in the multiple buck hunters so that we always have numerous mature bucks out there for every hunter. Please confirm with us beforehand if you are interested in a 2nd buck.
No, there isn’t a guarantee on a 200 inch buck or any buck for that matter… We will guarantee that there will be plenty of mature bucks over 200 inches in the preserve while hunting with us. We do our very best to put you in a situation to harvest a big deer but this is hunting and you will have to be quiet and hope lady luck gives you a visit. We typically average over 220 inches on our Trophy Hunt for the year and the deer are getting better every year.
There are plenty of non-typical deer running around out there also. Although we do cater towards the big typical we always have lots of big massive non-typicals show up as it seems that it is easier for a whitetail to grow non-typical that it is typical…
We have a 100% success rate for hunters seeing multiple bucks over 200+ on their hunt to date but we have had hunters go home empty handed. Sometimes the thrill and the challenge of seeing a certain monster on the trail camera and hunting that certain buck can cause hunters to pass on other trophy bucks that they would ordinarily harvest and therefore be unsuccessful. To date we have never had an unsuccessful hunter not return.
We have been managing trophy whitetail herds in the province since 1996 with a lot of the biggest bucks in Saskatchewan coming from our genetics. We decided that instead of other hunting preserves reaping benefits from our hard work we would open up our own preserve. So in 2010 we had our first hunters come through and the first deer we killed scored 217 SCI.
Yes, this is a high fenced wilderness preserve. Before we built it into a preserve, the area was a hot spot for outfitters and hunters alike with its huge trophy potential, as well as its thick timbered river bottoms that made big bucks feel safe and at home. With all this natural deer habitat and challenging terrain the area became our first choice when we put up our preserve and now with the monster bucks that roam the property, this is truly a world class hunting experience.
FAQS: ALL HUNTS
Extremely easy. All non-resident guests must complete the Non Resident Firearm Declaration (Canadian government forms RCMP 5589 / CAFC 909 and RCMP 5590 / CAFC 910 ) and present them in triplicate and unsigned at the Candian border, along with your firearms and a $50 Canadian payment.
Further information and the forms can be downloaded from the government website at: Canadian Firearms Center, www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca or by calling 1-800-731-4000. We do also provide the forms required via email if you contact us.
After your successful hunt we will skin and freeze your shoulder mount or full body cape, the whitetail cape and skull plate can be taken home with you on your flight. We will carefully help you package your trophy for a safe flight home. Bear hides are frozen down and sent home the same way. We can also deliver your trophy to one of several taxidermists who do work for us.
No it does not. Our hunters either drive up or rent a vehicle at the airport. The directions are very easy to follow. Renting your own vehicle or driving up gives you the freedom to leave earlier if you harvest early or if you want to do some site seeing.
In order for you to take your meat back with you, your trophy will have you to be deboned, labeled and frozen. Please advise us prior to your hunt about taking meat home with you. For any hunters who choose not to take your meat back with you we will donate it to local families who very much appreciate it!
If you are prepared it is really simple. You will need a valid passport, photo ID and a clean record with the law.
(Individuals with criminal records including DUI convictions may be refused entry into Canada. A waiver can be obtained but must be handled prior to travel into Canada. It is strongly recommended that you apply for a waiver to eliminate the worry of being refused entry.)
Let us know before you arrive and we will try to accommodate as best as we can.
