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.

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
