The Beginning of Hunting Season

The first day of September arrives and the sound of shotguns can be heard as the day begins. The hunting season is finally here and waterfowl are being hunted accross the prairies. Big game hunters will need to begin their preparations, getting gear ready and sighting in the rifles for when the rut will be on as the days grow shorter and cooler. We help connect hunters with the great outdoors in Alberta Saskatchewan and Manitoba to enjoy the world class hunting, fishing and camping. If you are looking for a hunting adventure, we help you find the hunting outfitter, guided hunting trip, fishing lodge, or campground that matches your outdoor quest. Check out our Outfitters, Guides and Lodges pages.

Late Season Camping

We have some great resources for helping you find that late season camping spot. Our Camping pages include links to Provincial Parks in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. As most families pack away the tents, sleeping bags, and prep the trailers for storage, campgrounds open up for the hearty campers who prefer the quiet coolness of fall campaing. Wondering which campground suits you best? Check out the provincial park ratings in the links just below for each province or go straight our listings of Provincial Parks and Campgrounds.

AB Camping comments:

This is such a cool part of Alberta. The badlands! Cool. Dinosaurs and camping and hiking are great. I hope I can convince my parents to go back again next year.

SK Camping comments:

Read the prior reviews about this campground before we set out on our weekend. I am not sure about the previous reviews, it was completely the opposite for our visit. People partying to all hours of the nights, totally unacceptable! Staff need to step it up a notch!

MB Camping comments:

A family ritual for the May long weekend is to go camping to Duck Mountain. I hope it warms up a bit. No matter the weather, it is always a great family weekend.

Don't Leave Your Flies on the Table

by Galen Sonntag

My house is quite often a hurricane of activity.  My kids, ages 7, 5, and 2 have boundless energy and are involved in any sporting activity that includes a ball, a club, a stick, or a puck.  That means I'm often rushing from one floor of the house to another to be the intervening referee, sometimes the goalie, sometimes the pitcher, many time the retriever or objects thrown, batted, shot or kicked too high.  The point is, I rarely have more then 5 minutes of time in a row to spend on any activity until after the kids go to bed.  Nonetheless, one day this spring, I was getting organized for a week long get away.

My various rods, normally stored in my gun cabinet to keep the kids from tangling all the lines together, were in the living room.  My tackle box was sitting on my desk.  My fly boxes, 3 of them, were in the living room, kitchen, and bathroom.  I was testing the sinking rate of some of the flies in a tub full of water in the bathroom when I was summoned to solve a "who hit who back first" argument in the toy room.  At the same time, my wife was busy cleaning the living room for some company coming that night, and swearing at me for leaving my rods all over the floor.

After getting the hockey game back on track, I decided to sort through some of my dry flies in the kitchen.  I pushed the rest of the stuff on the table aside to make room for the flies and began to remove them from the fly box one by one.  I organized them by size and colour, knowing full well after the first full day of fishing my box would be in complete disarray again.  With about 10 flies out of the box, a crash was heard from the downstairs toy room.  I arrived moments later to discover a broken light fixture but no broken kids.  No opportunity to try out alternative uses of head cement today!  Shop Vac to the rescue and the game was back on.

I started back upstairs, but remembered the sink rate experiment going on in the bathroom and resumed that activity for another 5 minutes before I had to rush to referee the next dispute.  I finally returned to my fly sorting about a 1/2 hour after I had left it, to discover all my dry boatsmen were gone from the neat row I had placed them in.  I also noticed the supper dishes had been removed from the table and the dishwasher was running.  I quickly surmised that my wife had whirl winded her way through the kitchen on a cleaning spree, and swept the table free of debris.  "Wife!", I called out.  "Did you clean up in the kitchen, 'cause I was just about to?"  Her reply was "Yes.  I don't have time for you to get to it."  "Where did you sweep the stuff from the table?", I inquired.  "Into the empty corn flakes box by the back door. Why?", came her puzzled reply. "Because you just swept $20 worth of my flies into the trash.", I answered.  "I thought they were crumbs from the kid's plates.", was her guilty reply.

I dumped the flies out, back onto the table, along with a few crumbs the kids had left, and continued my sorting and replacing back into the fly box from which they came.

Other places not to leave your flies (and you can imagine why):

PrairieOutdoors.com is your online outdoor hunting directory for hunting, fishing, and camping information for Western Canada (Alberta, Saskatchewan & Manitoba) including listings of hunting outfitters, guides, fishing tournaments, fishing lodges, resorts, and campgrounds. 

In Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba we have over 200,000 lakes and hundreds of rivers, featuring some of the finest fresh water game fishing possible.   The wild life is plentiful and world renowned for trophy quality hunting and fishing.  Many huning and fishing world records have come from this area including the Hanson Buck and the Broder Buck. We have wild mountain streams in Alberta featuring Brown trout and Rainbow trout that will rip the backing out of your reel.  Bring your heavy line and get ready to set the hook for Northern Pike that will spin your boat around.  The flocks of Canada Geese and Snow Geese will fill the sky in numbers only counted in hundreds of thousands.  The southern prairies feature excellent pheasant hunting along the creek beds and abundant numbers of "Prairie Chicken" (sharp-tail grouse) and "Huns" (Hungarian Partridge).  With a good dog and a quick 12 gauge you can get your limit.  Trophy walleye can be pulled from lakes year round and the ice fishing is an unbelieveable adventure.  Imagine pulling a 30 inch walleye or a 48 inch pike through 3 feet of ice.  If bear hunting is your sport, the forest are well stocked with the wary creatures.  If you have the patience, you have a great chance to pick a black bear in one of the many color phases ranging from pure black, to chocolate brown, to cinnamon and even the rare blonde bear. World record whitetail, elk, moose and mule deer are wandering the forests and plains where the big game are plentiful and big bodied.
