Saskatchewan Hunting with Robinson’s Thunder Creek Outfitters offers some of the finest waterfowl hunting in North America. Every fall, ducks and geese numbering in the hundreds of thousands descend on the grain filled fields of southern Saskatchewan to eat their fill of surplus grain in preparation for the migration south. It’s during this annual spectacle, from mid September to freeze up in November, that Saskatchewan earns its slogan: Land of Living Skies.
It’s during this time that incredible wing shooting opportunities abound. Yet, despite its abundance, being in the wrong place at the wrong time can leave even the most seasoned hunter searching the horizon, desperate to see any signs of life and wondering what went wrong. Having an experienced guide like Mike Robinson, Owner of Robinson’s Thunder Creek Outfitters can make all the difference, as it did during the trip I’ve shared with you here today that I took in the Fall of 2011.
This trip was shared with my father and two friends, Joe and Rick, whom I’d had the pleasure of meeting and hunting with during a previous trip to Saskatchewan in 2008. Together, we spent the last week of October hunting the grain fields in and around Lacadena and Kyle, Saskatchewan. Thanks to the knowledge and scouting efforts of Mike Robinson, our hunts were extremely successful; I recall several times being so awestruck by the amount of birds in the air; I left my gun in the blind and instead grabbed my camera to shoot with instead. We had a truly incredible experience and look forward to returning again soon.
When you think about the outdoor experiences you’ve had or have planned for the future, how do you or how will you remember them? Will that once in a lifetime trip to Africa, Alaska, Argentina, or Canada be documented in such a way that your incredible memories will literally come to life as you describe them to your family, friends, and colleagues? Will your son, daughter, grandson, or granddaughter’s first hunt be a memory they’ll be able to share with their children?
My approach allows you to focus on what’s really important: being a part of your once in a lifetime experience in the great outdoors with your family, friends, and colleagues while I unobtrusively document the action from the perspective of an avid, respectful sportsmen.
