Re: Saskatchewan rifle whitetail hunt ?
Just a couple of years ago this hunt looked like it was possibly going to come together for me and a couple guys. I spent countless hours on the internet looking over outfitters. I talked to quite a few and checked references on ones I had narrowed it down to. The place we were going to go to was Diamond Willow Hunts. The reasons I had chosen this place were the fellow that runs it was great to talk to, he didn't try to sell you, he didn't have to. The pictures, the references, really everything was first class. I liked the fact that most of the guides were local farmers thatnew the area, and had grown up hunting right there where they were taking you hunting. Also, when searching on the internet for hunts make sure the outfitters pictures are broken down year by year. Anyone can have a handful of big bucks taken over the course of 25 years and when they bunch them together it looks very impressive. The main reason I had chosen this place was though it was hard to get in. He had so many repeat clients that they just booked back in before they left to come home. The best part about that is repeat clients usually hold out for true trophies. They have shot a couple 140" - 150" deer and are now looking for Booners, all that equates to more borderline deer being let go til next year. I did have a good friend and two of his buddies use this outfitter after my hunt fell through and they all scored, two of them shot great bucks and one guy pulled the triger to quickly but the said the whole experience was first rate.
Good luck, check references of both successful and unsuccessful hunters, heated stands would be good, time in the stand + big bucks. I hope to go myself soon.
