What To Expect


Our Saskatchewan Upland Bird hunting takes place on both Crown and private land scattered throughout our seemingly endless allocated area of hunting.  The habitat varies from rolling prairie, old Farmsteads, sandy hills and slough bottoms, jack pine forest and meadows.

The hunting is generally easy walking. Hunters still need to be in decent shape. Bring your own hunting dogs to our dog-friendly lodge. We primarily target ruffed grouse, spruce grouse, and sharp-tailed grouse. Saskatchewan’s liberal limits offer a potential to shoot over 20 birds a day.
