Canadian Whitetails on a Budget?

7 posts in this topic

Just wondering if any of you have any tips on setting up a canadian whitetail trip cheaper than $3000-4000. Guess Im thinking something along the lines of an unguided hunt and possibly just leasing some land for a week. Any suggestions?

BIGBEAR,

I'm am also trying to plan a trip next year, to Saskatchewan. Me and couple friends. We are going through something like a travel agent for hunting and fishing trips. My friends have used them before and have been very happy. The good thing is they have been to several spots and found the best one they believe. The bad thing is you pay more. Looking online, most trips I have found are in the $3500-5500 price range. This is probably a once a lifetime trip for us, so we want to put ourselves in the best possible position to take a trophy if we are going to pay that much money. If you want, I'll let you know more details as we get further along in planning. Right now, I don't even know the name of the place. Good luck!

I was finding the same price range as you with the outfitters I checked out. Think I might just have to start putting some money away here for the next couple years and do it right. Thanks for the info and good luck with your hunt!

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

I would think long and hard about this before booking to Sask. Ontario is up and coming therefor the rates have more value to them at this point. Ive hunted the same woods Outfitter is going into, some real monsters around that area. For the money you can do almost 2 of his hunts for 1 to Sask. Why make it hunt of a life time when you could go twice for approx. the same amount? I know where I would book if I had to choose.

Timberwolf Lodge on HWY 502 just north of Fort Francis has a new owner and is getting the camp renovated. I was up in late Sept. for some laker fishing and looked at his photo album. There were some real monsters in there. He has his hunts priced very reasonable. I've seen some photos of the deer that came out of Musky Bay in Nestor Falls and they have some big deer there as well. Outfitter17 has a great photo album on his HSOforum. Looking at all these quality deer coming out of the same area would lead me to believe that one need not go any further to hunt Canada if they lived in MN.

    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
