Waterfowl Hunting Adventures!

Canada Geese, Snows, Specs, Ducks, Upland birds


Jordan grew up in the area, has hunted all of his life and loves the sport. In 2019 a life long dream came true as he took over the family waterfowl hunting operation. Over the years guiding for his dad Kevin, he's mastered where the birds like to feed, the natural flight lanes and all of the resting spots. He follows the feeding patterns so that he knows where and when the birds will dump out of the sky.

Early mornings in Saskatchewan become thrilling when a symphony of waterfowl sounds precedes their appearance. Decoys are out, the calling begins and flock after flock come into view. When they commit to landing, your heart pounds and your mind races.
Here they come – just a little closer,……….

Come to 12 Gauge Outfitting to experience the thrill of a Saskatchewan waterfowl hunt
that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

About Us

The Rowswell family invites you to an incredible Saskatchewan hunting experience you will never forget.

Jordan and Kendra Rowswell took over the family waterfowl operation in 2019. Jordan's passion for hunting was passed on from his father who owns and operates Wheeler River Lodge. Together the Rowswell family has hosted hunters for over 20 years to their hunting and fishing operations.

12 Gauge Outfitting (formally Big Sky Outfitting) is based at the family farm near Cut Knife, Saskatchewan– which just happens to be located in "waterfowl Heaven"! We offer a fall migratory and upland bird hunt. Waterfowl hunters will thrill as flight after flight of birds drop into the decoys. We will have the fields spotted and equipment ready when you arrive.

Wheeler River Lodge offers incredible fishing as well as hunting for black bear and moose. Kevin and Cheryl are very proud of their beautiful fishing and hunting camp on the Wheeler River. This total wilderness experience offers the finest opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle.
