Saskatchewan is a vast, open land where big game roam and flocks of waterfowl fill the skies overhead. Big-bodied, record-breaking trophy white-tailed deer populate vast stretches of prairie up to the boreal forest fringe. Black bear and moose are found throughout the aspen parklands and boreal forest all the way up into Saskatchewan’s northernmost reaches. Located along the Central Flyway and in the heart of the Prairie Pothole Region, the southern half of the province is a well-known bird-hunting mecca. Up to 70 percent of the continent’s waterfowl migrate through Saskatchewan and large numbers of ducks nest in the wetlands here.
