Waterfowl Hunting in Saskatchewan Canada
Waterfowl hunting in Saskatchewan typically consists of hunting a field in the morning for geese and a small pothole or wetland for ducks in the afternoon. However dont be surprised to limit out on ducks and geese in the morning. This happens quite often to our waterfowl hunters. If you do limit out on your morning hunt then our best afternoon option is to hunt for snow geese. Other afternoon options on a Saskatchewan waterfowl hunt include preadator hunting. The coyote population can always use some management. Some of our waterfowl hunters choose to simply relax, or they might wat to do some scouting with their guides. This is a fun way to experience first hand how much work goes into an outfitted waterfowl hunting adventure. Your guides, outfitter, and spotters all work together as a team to find the birds, get landowners permission, watch the birds and make sure everything is perfect, and then finally setup a hunt in that location.
Scouting is critical to your waterfowl hunt, even in Saskatchewan. You have to find out where the ducks and geese are feeding if you want to have a successful hunt. Our spotters are chasing the geese and ducks daily to keep tabs on where they are roosting and where they are feeding as well as what fields are being harvested and are there new birds migrating into the area? Waterfowl hunting can really be described as an art form. It takes time and effort and passion for hunting ducks and geese to make it all come together. Scouting is only the first step along the way next is permission. If you want to hunt ducks and geese in Saskatchewan or anywhere in Canada you will most likely be hunting on private land. This requires you to obtain permission from the landowners. Prairies Edge Outfitting works hard year around to keep in good standings with the local landowners because that is what will make or break your waterfowl hunt. If you find the ducks and geese but you are not able to hunt them it defeats the purpose of scouting. Once permission is given and a choice is made to hunt that spot the next morning or afternoon you must set up properly. Having a good waterfowl outfitter and guide is the key to success here. Experienced waterfowl hunters know that the better your blinds are hidden the better your hunt will be. Stubble needs to be raked up to cover the blinds, decoys need to be placed according to the wind and blind position. Your waterfowl hunting guide and outfitter will make sure that everything is perfect to ensure success. This is our job and this is what we do. After the finishing touches are put on the spread we wait for the birds to arrive. Ducks usually come in first and the action is fast and furious. in the field we commonly shoot mallards and pintails. Over water we will have teal, widgeon, and redheads coming into the decoys. Next the geese come in. There is nothing more exciting than a group of giant canada geese decoying perfectly witht their feet out and wings cupped, right in front of the blinds. This is the moment a waterfowl hunting guide lives for! Once you see it you will come back to Saskatchewan for ever. Waterfowl hunting is never the same after you visit Prairies Edge Outfitting.
