Welcome to Lucky Lake Hunting Adventures

Located in the prairie pothole region of Saskatchewan, right in the heart of the Central and Mississippi flyways and near Lake Diefenbaker, the South Saskatchewan River and Ducks Unlimited Project Marsh, Luck Lake. This combination gives us reliable numbers of birds from the beginning of the season with local birds, to the end of the season with late migrators.

Our area is truly unique in the fact that we get all of the migratory game birds that have made the prairies a number one destination. We play host to 100s of thousands of snow, blue and Ross geese, bountiful numbers of white-fronted geese, and Canada geese of every size. Being in the pothole region affords us the opportunity to hunt locally raised ducks, and we have them in big number. Mallards, pintail, wigeon, gadwall, blue and green-winged teal, shovelers, as well as numerous divers are typical here. We have an added bonus bird that is a true prairie trophy, the Sandhill crane. Most hunters have never experienced the site and sound of decoying Sandhills like we offer here.

We also offer upland bird hunts for Hungarian Partridge and sharp-tailed grouse in our hunt packages.

Very few areas anywhere produce the variety, quantity, and quality of waterfowl in North America, and few outfitters will go to the lengths that we will to ensure you have the hunt of a lifetime, every time. So come along with us for a true waterfowler's hunting adventure.

About Your Outfitter

It all goes back to my first duck hunt in 1981 at the age of 2 in the Delta Marsh of Manitoba. My Dad was a dyed in the wool goose hunter his whole life, and I am no exception. Growing up in the Interlake region of Manitoba, 20 minutes from the famed Delta Marsh, afforded ample opportunity to skip school and chase birds.

At nine years old I told my parents (after my first fly in fishing trip) that I wanted to own a lodge. At 18 when I was legal to guide hunters, I was excited to get started. Through many years of guiding both hunter and fisherman all over Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario, I always kept my eye on the prize.

In 2005 the opportunity came when I was able to buy Lucky Lake Hunting Adventures (formerly Lucky Lake Outfitters). I had guided 2 seasons here and knew the potential the area held.

Every year we strive to make every hunt the hunt of a lifetime for every client. I look forward to taking you on your hunt of a lifetime.

I look forward to seeing you in the field.


Waterfowl & Upland Overview

Here at Lucky Lake Hunting Adventures we know you come to Saskatchewan hunt waterfowl, and that is what we give you. Unlike most outfitters, with us you hunt the whole time you are here. You are guaranteed at least 2 hunts everyday with us .That's right, in a 3 day hunt you have a minimum of 6 hunts, 4 day hunt you get 8 hunts, etc!

Spotting is the key to hunting in waterfowl Canada, and we strive to be the best. We employ a different tactic than most when it comes to spotting and guiding. Firstly you are guided full time during your hunt. There is no "dropping you off" after the decoys are set. We are there to call the birds, call the shot and watch the limits. You are on vacation, let us do the work. Secondly, the guides are also the spotters. The morning guides spend their afternoons spotting and the afternoon guides spend their mornings spotting. This eliminates the inevitable confusion from trying to relay information from spotter to guide. We have found this also prevents guide burnout and keeps us hungry for the next hunt. After switching to this system our birds per hunter per day went up 16%. At 4:30 in the morning nothing quite beats knowing the spot inside and out, and not just from a description on a map. We also employ several prespotters that are on the road looking at new areas and monitoring birds for the guides.

A typical day starts at about 4:00 a.m. with coffee, juice, toast, muffins, or fruit. Then it's off to the field in one of our Suburbans with you guide for the morning waterfowl hunt. We hunt from Aframe blinds, layout blinds, and use white cover suits when hunting snow geese. Nothing beats quality when it comes to decoys and we got em. Full body Canada, speckle belly and snow goose decoys, as well as an almost endless supply of sock decoys are all employed when hunting with us. Guides are all accomplished callers, but we do use electronic callers when hunting snow/blue/Ross' geese.

The afternoon hunt starts around 2 pm with your choice of ducks, cranes, snow geese or upland birds. After October 15th dark geese may be hunted all day, so if you are bent on goose hunting this is the time for you. We try to tailor every hunt for you, so your input is vital in making this the best Canadian waterfowl hunt it can be. After photos it is back to the lodge for a hearty supper and a well earned rest.

Bird cleaning and freezing is included in the hunt. We employ on site bird cleaners, and all birds are breasted and tagged in compliance with the Federal Migratory Bird Act. We understand that with today's airline policies it is extremely expensive to fly a cooler home. If you choose to not take all your birds home we will donate them on your behalf.

Our season dates are September 1 through December 15. We are lucky here in the fact that the Saskatchewan River stays open well into the end of December and snowfall is usually light. This makes for some of the best, and underrated big honker and fat mallard hunting anywhere.
