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.

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
