Saskatchewan advice
« on: May 16, 2012, 10:43:36 PM »
Hey guys

I'm looking to draw a sask tag this year. I'm looking to bow hunt in a zone that is open for non res during sept and october. I was looking around the meadow lake area.....but was told the hunting pressure was pretty immense. Is there any truth to this? I hate guys who come online and do the "put me in coach" I need a spot. I do my homework and will make the best of the zone I draw. I'm just looking for any advice or feedback from someone who has done this hunt in the early season.

Thanks

yes the pressure is ridiculous in that area.  there and hudson bay are why the can res draw system was created.  in both places, there is one road into the forest and every vehicle has to use that one so it appears that there are zillions of hunters.  the bottleneck of traffic magnifies the situation making it appear worse than it is, but yes there are tons of hunters there.  from alberta, meadow lake is basically the first real town you get to, and on the east, same for hudson bay coming from manitoba.  that said, the area does produce some giants every year, but if early season is what you are after, i would head more toward the central part of the province.  good luck whatever you decide.
opinions are like sphincters......everyone has one, and they all stink!

I hunted zone 55 last year and it was crazy with the amount of hunters... We did see some good bucks.. The old man shot a 150 and I passed on a few over 160 I was hopeing on a freak tho lol.. We will be out there this year in the same zone to giver a nother shot.. Going to try with the muzzleloader this time... The locals are good if you talk nice to them...
