Goose Hunting In Saskatchewan, Whats the big deal?

Goose Hunting In Saskatchewan
Goose hunting in Saskatchewan is awesome!  Low human population, Huge amounts of farmland, Huge amounts of wetlands and lakes, and the location (right in the heart of the central flyway) all combine to make waterfowl hunting in Saskatchewan the best of the best.  Giant Canada Geese call this Canadian province home so if your looking for some good shooting, or a trophy sized bird to take to the taxidermist Saskatchewan is where you want to come to hunt geese.  Vast tracts of treeless farm land is what SK is famous for and these fields are a perfect feeding ground for ducks and geese.  Peas are the crop of choice and this works well for hunting because the peas are usually the first to be harvested in the fall, right before the season opens.  Second choice is barley or any silage cut fields.  The ducks and geese roost on the large water bodies for the night then fly out to the fields in the morning.  The way we hunt waterfowl is easy.  You watch them come off the roost water and follow them to the field.  Once a field is spotted with enough ducks or geese to hunt, then the farmer/landowner must be contacted and permission is asked for and usually given without any problems.  Once we have permission this is what we call a hunt "in the bag" and we will continue to watch it until we want to hunt it.  At Prairies Edge Outfitting we always watch a hunt the morning or afternoon right before we hunt it.  We want to make sure that nothing goes wrong at the last minute so that your waterfowl hunt will be one that you can remember as the best hunt ever.  You might wonder what can go wrong at the last minute?  Well a coyote can run the geese off, a poacher can drive by and start shooting, or maybe the birds decided to switch fields that day for some unknown reason.  Whatever the case may be our experienced spotters and guides will always have a few options and tricks up their sleeves to give you the waterfowl hunting adventure of a lifetime.  Spotting can take alot of time and man power and that is only the beginning of your goose hunt!  after you find the geese, you have to get permission, then watch them to determine if there is a good huntable number, then you have to actually setup and hunt!  This is alot of fun, but also alot of work.  The best option then is to book a hunt with a good, hard working waterfowl hunting outfitter such as Prairies Edge Outfitting We take the stress and hard work out of duck and goose hunting in Saskatchewan and make it an enjoyable experience!!  All you have to do is wake up in the morning ready to hunt and you can be assured that the professional waterfowl guides at Prairies Edge Outfitting will have an awesome hunting location picked out for you to go goose hunting that morning.  They will let you do what you do if your an old pro, or they will walk you through every step if your new to the waterfowl hunting world.  We are committed to providing waterfowl hunters with an enjoyable experience in and out of the field.  Fast paced shooting action is the standard order of the day.  Flock after flock of mallards and pintails will be in at first light with the Canada's not far behind!  On a good mixed bag hunt we will get some speck and snow goose action as well.  Liberal limits and an abundance of unpressured birds what more could a waterfowl hunter want?  Come to Saskatchewan to hunt geese and we promise you wont be disappointed!
