HUNTING INFO

The Hunt:
 
All hunts are two hunts per day for the duration of your stay. Only exception would be if you were to harvest both limits of ducks and geese in the same hunt. Hunts are usually geese in the morning and ducks in the afternoon. All goose hunts are in well scouted, dry grain and pea fields. We are very selective in the fields we hunt. We like to watch fields for 2-3 days to ensure the birds are in a calm and relaxed feeding pattern to ensure a good hunt. Duck hunts are in dry fields, big water or small marshes or beaver ponds.
 
Field shooting is for Canada and White Fronted geese, Mallards and Pintails. All field shooting is done over decoys with lay down blinds or stand up, natural cover box blinds. Big water action will cover just about all species of ducks and even the occasional sea duck. Excellent Mallard decoying in the cattails and for you diver enthusiasts, Bluebill and Barrows Goldeneyes are plentiful. Transportation on the lake is made possible with our new 18ft. Gator Trax boat, custom made to ensure a comfortable, smooth and most importantly...Safe ride to the X.
 
Limits as of the 2014 season are:
 
Geese
Dark Geese(Canada's and Whitefront) 8 Daily and 24 Possession

5 of your 8 daily geese and 15 of your 24 possession may be Whitefronts for non-resident aliens.

What to Bring:

Temperature in September will vary from normal highs in the 60's-80's and lows in the 40's to 60's.
Snow flurries can occur in the second half of the month.
 
October weather is generally cooler with normal highs in the 50's-60's and lows in the 20's-40's.
 
Surprise rain showers occur frequently. Good lightweight Gore-tex rain gear that is packable for layering over your outerwear will go a long ways on hunts earlier in the season when bulking up with the warm waterfowling gear is not necessary.

Hunts may be anywhere from a ten minute to an hour drive.

  • Hunting camo of your choice. Waterproof pants or bibs, jacket, parka, cap, gloves.
  • When the weather is warm and dry you can get by with light pants, hoodie, long sleeve shirt and vest.
  • Blind bag or backpack to carry any personal gear in the field.
  • A pair of leather work gloves or mechanics gloves will go a long way while brushing blinds in the morning.
  • FACEMASK is a must. Find one that you can shoot in comfortably and one that you won't overheat in while the temps are high.
  • Headlamp of some kind that straps over your head or clips on the bill of your cap.
  • Boots of your choice.
  • We have new chest waders and padded/swiveling marsh stools on site that you can use during your stay if you would like to get up close with the mallards in the cattail marshes or beaver pond timber. Traveling with your own waders from home is NOT necessary.
  • Shotgun of your choice. Bringing a shotgun into Canada is easy. The RCMP non-resident firearms declaration can be downloaded here: CLICK HERE
