If you have ever dreamed of hunting for heavy, chocolate-racked monsters this is the perfect destination for you. This camp is located in north-central Saskatchewan and offers some of the most exciting white-tail hunting you can find anywhere. This is a family-run operation on 280 square miles of provincial forest, which borders the Prince Albert National Park. This outfitter runs one of the best camps that I have ever hunted. You will hunt for 5 ½ days in heated stands overlooking baited sites. The hunt includes food, lodging, 2×1 guide, plus trophy preparation. The cost is $3,950 plus license.  This is the place for huge bucks. This past year my hunters went 8 X 10, and the camp overall went 16 X 20. All hunters had 100% opportunity. Our average buck scored 142.
