Saskatchewan Waterfowl Hunting Outfitters, Whitetail Deer & Black Bear Hunts in Canada!!!

The Hunt

Expect an early morning start as we head in to the field to set up our morning spread before daylight.  We will commonly put out 1000 plus quality windsock decoys along with flyers while utilizing an electronic call to bring them in.  You will have one guide with you in the field in the morning while your other guide is out locating birds for your hunt tomorrow.  We are traditionally in the field for a longer time in the spring as the geese can fly all day.  However, packing up around noon and heading back to the lodge for a hearty afternoon lunch is typical.  But that doesn’t mean your hunt is over for the day, quite the contrary!

Highland Outfitter’s lodge is located on high ground with an elevation of approximately 2000 feet in the midst of the snow goose migration flight path.  You can take advantage of this by going freestyle hunting in the complete decoy spread where you can see for miles set up on high, private Highland home property in the afternoons and evenings after our morning guided hunt.  The camp spread is walking distance from the lodge so you can come and go freestyle hunting as you please.  A true piece of paradise to hunt migrating geese from in a field spread during the afternoons and evenings.  Your guides will be out lining up your next morning shoot for you.  You can be in the field all day if you like or spend your spare time in the afternoons or evenings at the lodge watching the game on satellite TV if you prefer.  You can even pass shoot right from the deck just like we do as the geese fly over the lodge.  Bottom line is you get a fully guided day hunt and then get to spend the balance of your time as you choose, whether that means more hunting, catching a nap at the lodge, or sitting on the deck enjoying a drink and watching the migration.

About Us

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, waterfowl, and upland birds. I hold a 2008 world record for a 35 lb rainbow trout I caught here in my home guiding area 20 minutes from our farm. 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 however have focused exclusively on the outfitting business for the past 12+ years. 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.  Having two boys, Rylan and Reed who are now both of hunting age and showing an interest in hunting and the family outfitting business is nice to see and adds a whole new element to the outdoor passion we have developed.  You will find I am a straight shooter and that there are no surprises hunting with me at Highland Outfitters.

Our Area

The spring snow goose migration through our area has increased noticeably in the last few years.  This has resulted in some superb spring hunting that has become a very appealing option for our waterfowl hunters.  Not only do we hunt geese that are staging on local waterbodies and feeding in the neighboring grain fields but we also hunt a lot of geese that are simply migrating and drop in when they see our spreads.  This is due to the fact that quality feed this time of year is scarce so geese are very interested when they think they see another flock feeding that must have found some much needed grain for the rest of their trip north to their nesting grounds.

Our lodge in Saskatchewan is unique because we are situated within a mile of four different major snow goose roosting ponds and we are right in between them all.  We get great spring hunting in the fields right behind the lodge as the geese fly between these ponds looking for fields to feed in.
