Think Big in Saskatchewan: Canada's Hunting Hotspot

Looking for big adventure? Big game? You'll find both here in Canada's hunting hotspot. Saskatchewan's southern prairie landscape and northern wooded regions create an incomparable and diverse wildlife habitat.

Millions of geese and the largest duck population in Canada and the US attract waterfowl hunters. Upland game bird hunting for pheasants, sharp-tailed grouse and Hungarian partridge is also excellent. Visiting big game enthusiasts hunt white-tailed deer, moose and black bear. Limited hunting of antelope, mule deer and elk is restricted to Saskatchewan residents to help manage the populations.

Over 200 experienced hunting outfitters provide expertise and guidance through the diverse habitat and wide open spaces of Saskatchewan, making your first-rate Canadian hunting experience one that you’ll never forget. At least until your next visit.
