We are taking this opportunity to introduce ourselves as the proud new owners of Turtle River Whitetail Outfitters. My wife Kathy and I are very excited about our venture and plan on making it even better than it has been. We have many changes we want to make and the following are a small sample of what we intend to do to make your hunts more enjoyable and even more successful.
- Establish mineral and salt licks immediately as they are essential for optimum antler growth.
- Purchase choice grain and select 2nd cut alfalfa for bait.
- Start baits weeks prior to hunters arriving .
- Improve stand locations and make more shooting lanes available.
- Through the use of Cuddeback trail cameras we will monitor all baits.
- Purchase better blinds and heaters so you are more comfortable while hunting.
- Constantly read the sign and monitor the area for new stand locations.
- Many more ideas too numerous to list now that will enhance your hunting experience with us.
Now I would like to inform you a little bit about myself, the area, and my hunting expertise. After prayers, careful planning and research we decided to move to Meadow Lake SK. Canada so I could find an outfitting business and enjoy chasing the monster whitetails that are available here. We moved from the United States to Canada in the summer of 2001. Once the decision to move was made and the research was done there was only one spot to be and that was the Meadow Lake area. We looked at several hunting areas for 4 years before deciding this one was exactly what I wanted. The area is southwest of Meadow Lake in the Divide Forest area which has an abundant amount of whitetail deer with excellent habitat as well. The area is accessible by quad only with no roads or outside access. It is far enough away from the surrounding towns and villages that there is virtually zero local hunting pressure. According to our wildlife managers we have an expanding deer herd that is doing excellent in this area. Information from them is available at www.se.gov.sk.ca and can be easily researched. The area consists of pristine Canadian wilderness and is the home to a variety of animals such as moose, upland game species (ruffed grouse & spruce grouse) and snowshoe hare.
