I am going on a hunt in Saskatchewan next year. I have a choice of the first week or the third week in November but I'm not sure which one I would rather go. I was curious if anybody else on here has hunted there and have a recommendation which week they would go?

The outfitter says the first week produces as well the third week but from what I read the third week should be during the rut. Just having a hard time deciding.

I would choose the chasing phase over peak rut anyday.

Been there three times.

Never hunted the first week.Outfitter i was with said the first week can be a bust if snow and cold weather doesnt happen.He didnt even offer hunts the first week.
The only good thing about the first week is you know the stands arent worn out.Lots of guides overhunt their stands.I believe i would pass the first week.

Second and third weeks would be my choice.More reliable weather.

Third week should be good next year.

Make sure you dont go on Thanksgiving week or you will pay another $600 dollars for air fare.

Other helpful hints.
Call Thompson Travel Agency in Saskatoon and let them set up your flight and hotel arrangements.Yes you will need a hotel the first night in Saskatoon.Also the last night in Saskatoon.They will also get a rental truck ready for you.Ask for a 4 wheel drive.Truck or Suburban.Depending on number of guys going with you.Some guides will pick you up in Saskatoon.Most dont.

From experience never fly Air Canada.

Make sure 1 person has room on their Credit Card for truck rental.Probably cost you 4-5 hundred dollars for a week.

Must have passport and no felony conviction or Canada may not let you in.They can refuse a person entry for even a DUI if they want to.

Do all money transaction with credit card and let them figure the going rate.

Most of all.Have fun and kill a big un.

Thanks for the info. We are driving. I was also worried about the first week of the month possibly being above average temperatures. I have to decide something by tomorrow. The outfitter says they feel as good about the first week as the third. He said there is not as much rutting activity but they are more patterned on the bait.
