Waterfowl Types and Limits

At 12 Gauge Outfitting

This part of Saskatchewan is basically the first stop on the great fall migration south. While we have quite a large population of local birds that raise their young here, most of the birds won’t arrive back here until the middle of September. We once took a Greater Canada goose that was banded 13 years prior only 3 miles away! Once you see the sheer volume of waterfowl dumping into a grain field or stacked on a pothole like cordwood, you’ll understand why hunters have chosen to make Saskatchewan their dream destination for world class waterfowl hunting for years.

You will see every size and shape of Canada goose, snow, blue, and Ross’ goose, white-fronted goose, mallard, and pintail during your hunt. With generous limits here, it is little wonder why your shooting shoulder will be sore after a day or two.
