Whitetail deer in Saskatchewan range from 120-200 class B&C point bucks. Not everyone will harvest an animal each year. Many of our returning clients will turn down a 150-160 class deer because they have taken a bigger animal in the past and are looking for “the big one!” I always say that I will be disappointed if I cannot show you a 140+ deer, but we have to remember that it is a fair chase hunt and weather does affect the deer’s movement.
We have both typical and non-typical deer. Northern Pride Outfitters has a winter feeding program that helps keep the deer in the area and ensures the deer maintain good health even during the long, cold winter months. All of our hunting areas have baits that will accommodate all ages and physical ability so we can accommodate hunters from 12-80+ years young.
We have may different types of stands that include: pop-up tents, enclosed huts, climbers, loungers, ladder and lock-on stands. We typically hunt out of tents and enclosed huts during the late season. You will spend the whole day in your stand so it’s very important to be prepared for the cold. We have several ‘Mr. Buddy Heaters’ and a few body heater bags available on really cold days. We provide radios so you can communicate between guides and hunters if needed. Cell phones work in the Meadow Lake area, but service in the local baits is often hit and miss.
