Canadian Whitetails on a Budget?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
