Whitetail Deer Hunts

Fully Guided Trophy Deer Hunts

Trophy whitetail deer! This is a unique trophy deer area that is situated between Lake of the Woods and Rainy River. With mixed agriculture, timber, extensive food plots, and a season that coincides with pre-rut and rut, this area has everything that Western Canada has to offer. Due to light hunting pressure these whitetails live to be trophy age (5-7 years old) and become huge bodied with large racks. The only way a buck can become a Booner is living to maturity in an area that provides great cover, lots of feed, and light hunting pressure. The Rainy River district has it all!

Archery Whitetail Hunting

A 12 foot shooting platform with an outdoor shooting range utilizing the glendel full rut buck targets.

Archery hunts run during the month of October. They are six day hunts for mature whitetails that are still on their summer feeding patterns. This allows the hunter to target these monsters while they are still on a predictable routine.

Encounters are at close range from ladder, tower, ground blind or clamp on tree stands. Your hunting day begins before dawn with a light breakfast and then you will be taken out to intercept your quarry as they head back to their bedding sites from their feeding activities. The morning wraps up with pick up and a mid day lunch. The afternoon will proceed by again taking stand in an ambush strategically located between the deer’s bedding sites and their afternoon feeding locations.

Rifle Whitetail Hunting

 

This area is home to whitetail bucks that will often weigh in excess of 300 pounds. Success rates are good with opportunities every season for B & C class deer. With thousands of acres of wooded and swampy areas, the region is known for large bodied and large antlered deer. The hunts are conducted in permanent enclosed stands, tower stands, roofed ground blinds and portable stands on active scrape lines. Hunters are encouraged to grunt and rattle for big bucks. Rifle hunting starts after the Saturday following the 26th of October each year.  Bring your warm gear and be prepared for big adventure and we’ll do everything we can to put you in front of your next trophy whitetail.

NO handguns are allowed in Canada.

Licenses are available over the counter. Every hunter is required to show a vendor an Outdoors Card effective January 2010, or present an old hunting license from your home state.

 

Hunter orange

All licensed hunters, including bow hunters, falconers, bear hunters, and trappers who are hunting under their trapping licence during a gun season for deer, elk or moose, are required to wear hunter orange. This requirement does not apply to persons who are hunting migratory game birds, except woodcock.

In addition, all licensed bear hunters hunting during the open season for black bear, that is not a gun season for deer, elk or moose, are required to wear hunter orange except when in a tree stand.

A hunter orange garment and head cover must be worn. The hunter orange garment must cover a minimum of 2,580 square centimetres (400 square inches) above the waist and be visible from all sides. Open mesh or camouflage hunter orange must not be part of the 2,580 square centimetres (400 square inches). A hunting coat or vest generally meets this requirement. The hunter orange head cover may have: open mesh, a peak or brim colour other than hunter orange, and a crest or logo which does not completely cover the hunter orange on the side where it is affixed. The head cover must not contain camouflage material.

Hunters using ground blinds should take steps to make their blind clearly visible to other hunters who may be in the area. Use of hunter orange material on the outside of the blind is an appropriate method to mark a ground blind.
