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.

    • That was obviously his Republican side...
    • lambjm - keep at it. If you do, you stand a great chance of fishing for possibly decades to come.    Inspirational to me, and hopefully others, is our 85 year old neighbor in Hovland who finished up logging our land this past spring. He logs in a one man operation every day, except Sundays, and a nice day every now and again to fish with his wife.    He has been logging continually for 66 years.   Like clockwork he gets to the landing everyday by 8:30, takes a 15 min break at 10:30, a half hour lunch break at 12, and a 15 min break at 3 before quitting at 4:30. A few days last winter I was out on the land making firewood and clearing trails, and could barely keep up with his schedule. He plans to keep at it as long as he is able.    My wife and I saw him last winter, as we rounded the corner of our road, standing atop a 10' pile of aspen logs with a cant hook or axe in one hand, waving with the other. He appeared as a man less than half his age in terms of agility and stature.   Genetics are a key, but staying interested and active in an outdoor activity is very important to a long and healthy life.     
    • That is because he was fooled into believing in trickle down economics and the idea that cutting taxes in and of itself would solve the budget problem.   Some are still fooled today.
    • Starve the beast, only the beast got stuff on credit.   Reagan didn't seem to be concerned too much about debt.
    • We already know Uncle Bill's response though:  
    • That is a very nice Pimple spear!   They are hard to find. I bought a couple of them from Jerry Kelm. He said Pimple used spring steel from hay rake tines to make the spear tines.    I have not seen one in person with chromed or nickel finish like that, but there is a picture of one that looks exactly like yours on page 215 of  the book "Ice Fishing Spears" by Marcel Salive. I actually wonder if it is the same spear. I heard Mr. Salive was selling off some spears about 5 years ago.    Are you going to be our tomorrow? If so PM me and I will bring the book out to give you a look. TS and I are going to out in the morning. 
    • Well, you were never very good at comprehension so your reply doesn't come as a surprise. 
    • Neither one is real big on massive debt and free govt. bennies, I'll give you that.   Just thought I would mention Reagan's libertarianism, since D2E brought it up..
    • Well, the Republicans have JV so I believe that is check mate for our side.
