Saskatchewan Canada Duck Hunts

3 ndabrowski.jpgHunt ducks in Saskatchewan, the “land of living skies”.  Northern Saskatchewan Canada is defined by an immense agricultural landscape of harvested peas, wheat and barley, well away from the US freelance duck hunters that swarm the province further south.  Innumerable water bodies in this region form the final element necessary for consistently decoying staging and migrating ducks and geese in abundance.

These Saskatchewan, Canada, duck hunts occur in the northern portion of the province, some of the first agricultural habitat southbound migrating ducks run into.  High-quality decoys, ground blinds and thousands of acres exclusive-use gained through years of working relationships are integral to this successful hunting operation.  Full-time scouts are dedicated to finding the hottest fields for the next hunt, and guides concentrate on putting birds over the decoys.

Mallards and pintail comprise the bulk of bagged ducks. Saskatchewan bag limits are 8 dark geese (3 white-fronts), 20 snow geese and 8 ducks (3 pintail).  Morning hunts are usually dry field affairs, with a solid mix of decoying ducks and geese.  Afternoon hunts for ducks are usually over or near potholes adjacent to hot cropland.

Timing

Saskatchewan Canada duck hunt from early-September through October.

About the Area – Saskatchewan Canada Duck Hunts

saskatchewan canada prairie.jpgSome of the most enduring images of Saskatchewan are endless fields of golden wheat waving in a gentle breeze, stoic grain elevators, and modest, welcoming communities where the pace of life leaves time for living. And even though times change and people come and go, one true thing endures: the Saskatchewan prairie’s soul.

Saskatchewan is located in the heart of North America. To the east and west are the Canadian provinces of Manitoba and Alberta. To the south it borders the American states of Montana and North Dakota. To the north are Canada’s Northwest Territories and Nunavut.  More than a quarter million square miles in size, its population of about one million is only one-third that of Mississippi and nearly half its residents lives among the cities of Saskatoon and Regina.

Saskatchewan’s people are its heart and soul – warm, friendly and deeply connected to the land. Whether you visit for an afternoon or stay for a month, the inevitable sense of calm will envelop you, the wide open skies will awaken you to a world of possibilities, and the spirit of the people will leave a profound and lasting impression.

Sometimes Saskatchewan’s giant sky is alive: It starts with a sound off in the distance; was that a duck or a goose calling out? Wait, it sounds like more than one. Within seconds, the first V-shaped flock appears, the hard-working followers forming two giant lines behind a determined leader. Then another flock, and each successive flock appears larger than the last.  Maybe you get goose bumps when you realize what you’re seeing. The sky has filled with birds for as far as the eye can see.  During the spring and fall migrations, both residents and those birds passing through find Saskatchewan’s habitat to be a perfect gathering place or refueling stop.  For avid waterfowlers, few experiences compare to the spectacle. Except maybe Saskatchewan Canada duck hunting.
