Cory McLachlan – Owner & Guide, Highland Outfitters
I (Cory) was born and raised in the central flyway and big game bounty of Saskatchewan. My dad and Granddad were both avid hunters. They passed down their love of hunting, their knowledge of the sport and their expertise of the land to me in my outfitting zones. My family started teaching me about harvesting from nature at the age of three. I have hunted mule deer, white tailed deer, elk, moose, antelope, and waterfowl. I hold a 2008 world record for a 35 lb rainbow trout I caught here in my home area. My first big game milestone was at the age of 16 on October 9, 1993 – a muzzle loader mule deer that was officially scored as a 176. I hold a professional designation in accounting. While I enjoy being outdoors, hunting, and having fun, I have also acquired the education, skills and discipline necessary to organize, run and maintain a successful business long term. You will find I am a straight shooter and that there are no surprises hunting.
Devon D. Charette – Head Guide, Highland Outfitters
Born and raised a stones throw away from the shores of Lake Erie, I have grown up in a waterfowl rich community. Hunting has been a passion of mine since I was a young child, and guiding was something I always knew I would be doing.
I have been guiding for Highland Outfitters now for 8 years, and will continue to do so for many more years to come. I have been fortunate enough to land a few sponsors throughout my hunting career, Final Approach, Bushnell, Sean Mann Outdoors etc. Along with these sponsorships I have had the opportunity to hunt all over Canada and the U.S and I will say Highland territory is by far the most “game rich” area you will ever experience.
My most recent venture in the hunting industry took place during the 2014 hunting season, my business partner and I began manufacturing game calls of all sorts. Our calls range from duck, goose, turkey and predator calls made proudly right here in Canada. North Channel Outdoors www.northchanneloutdoors.com was a concept driven by passion for the outdoors and Highland Outfitters will always be our closest business partner.
The waterfowl numbers in the Highland Outfitters hunting zones are nothing short of spectacular. Each year we witness the mass migration of Snow geese, Ross geese, Speckle bellies, Canada geese (both big and small), mallards, pintails, diving ducks and more. The amazing number of waterfowl driven through our particular area during the fall and spring migration will keep you coming back here year after year.
I look forward to meeting new hunters every season and my passion and devotion to quality hunts is always something I will take pride in. If you’re looking for a quality hunt with great food / accommodations and pleasant friendly people to hunt with, look no further this is the place!
