Default Saskatchewan Whitetail - LIVE!

Well, my dad and I have been talking about hunting whitetail in Saskatchewan since I was in high school. Tomorrow morning we will point the truck North and, if everything goes smoothly, we hope to make it to Casper, Wyoming by the end of the day (did I mention we are driving?). We plan to cross the border mid-day Saturday and make our way to Saskatoon. With two heavy drive days behind us, that will leave us plenty of time to drive to camp on Sunday and relax a little before Day 1 on Monday.

My dad will be armed with the boom stick and I will have my bow. Now, grown with kids, I am looking forward to the drive time/conversation with my dad even more than the hunt. Should be a great trip!

In preparation, please pray for safe/smooth travels and that the bullets/arrows fly straight!

More to come...

Awesome. A guy I used to hunt with went up there on a bow hunt and didn't see one deer until the 10th day. On his last hunt he killed a 199! Only deer he saw the whole trip! Stay patient- great genetics up there!

Good luck

Just did the trip (drive from Texas to sk) if you'd like pm me I'll fill you in on good places to stop etc.. East Montana can be tricky to navigate.. it's very sparse, and you have to time your fill ups right etc.
we did it 27 hours straight! Brutal

The times I have been there are in the middle of Nov, usually the peak of the rut. It can be brutally cold for a bow hunter , ask me how I know. Hope the weather is good for you.

Hope you have a safe trip and a successful hunt. Enjoy your family time with your dad. My son and I made a Idaho trip 3651 miles a few months ago elk hunting and it was time I will cherish forever. Reminded me of the time I spent with my dad chasing white tails when I was young.
