Canadian Whitetails on a Budget?

10 posts in this topic

Just wondering if any of you have any tips on ways to set up a canadian whitetail trip without paying $3000-4000. I guess Im wondering if there are any ways to simply lease some land for a week and guide yourself or something like that.

I think that guides are required in a lot of areas although I am not 100% sure.

ahhh...guess that could be the reason why I wouldnt be able to find much information on unguided hunts. Guess I'll have to start putting a little more in the piggy bank.

Manitoba laws require non-residents to hunt big game with outfitters only. Sorry!

Hey Guys,

We are putting our fully guided 2009 whitetail hunt at $2495 for next year, but we are also putting together an unguided hunt that will run for about $1300 per man. If you want some details e-mail me at campmanitou@hotmail.com

Those prices are somewhat reasonable

What about Ontario? I live in Bemidji and have been looking into going out of state for whitetails. judging by some of the sheds we find up in Ontario it would be a shorter drive for the same quality bucks as Kansas or one of those states.

The hunts Outfitter is talking about are in NW Ontario and are in remote areas where hunter pressure is low due to NR guide requiremnet in the area hunted on the guided hunts. The unguided hunts are in close proximity to the guided hunts, but is in an unguided zone, NR hunting pressure is almost non existant as the area has no NR camping allowed and lack of accommodations. It is a great opportunity to hunt trophy Canadian bucks in a remote area without lots of other hunters. Any questions, ask myself or Outfitter and we can set you up.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
