Flyway Highway Endorsed Outfitters

Craig has the opportunity to hunt waterfowl all over North America. Consequently, he has a pretty good idea of where to go and which outfitters to use. Below is a list of folks he highly recommends. All the outfitters listed below run top notch, professional operations. And most importantly, they know how to "put you on the birds".

RJM Guiding & OutfittingRyan Marsh of RJM Guiding & Outfitting offers some outstanding waterfowl hunting. Located in central Saskatchewan, RJM is right where you want to be in the province. The duck hunting is exceptional and the dark goose hunting is absolutely world class. We hunted with Ryan in early October which is a great time to shoot both ducks and geese. Give Ryan a call and, depending on what species you want to concentrate on, he'll set up a hunt of a lifetime for you!

Bigfoot OutfittersBigfoot Outfitters is east central Saskatchewan near the edge of the Boreal Forest. I really enjoyed hunting here. We shot ducks, dark geese and white geese. Marion Parasiuk is an experienced outfitter and really knows how to put you on the birds. This was an area of Saskatchewan I hadn't been to before but certainly want to go back to. Hunting on the edge of the forest has some big advantages. The fields you're hunting are the first ones the birds hit when they come out of the forest and migrate south!

Jeff Black and his partner Tyson Tabler know how to find the birds and use the best equipment available. Their large decoy spreads are top quality and in mint condition. Their layout blinds are roomy and comfortable. These are two important factors to consider when choosing a outfitting operation. They have access to a tremendous amount of quality hunting land and are close to excellent lodging and dining options. Also, Feathered Fowl Outfitters is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Waterfowl Outfitter. I had a great time hunting with these guys and definitely recommend them!

And make sure to request his rib eye steaks one night for dinner. They're awesome! Speaking of awesome, the hunting can be described as that as well. Ronnie's got everything; flooded rice and bean fields, flooded buck brush, and flooded green timber. He also does dry field snow goose hunts as well. His staff is professional and courteous. The hunting is great. You really cant go wrong with Paradise Wings!

Phone - 306-561-7034

Living Sky OutfittersTalk about a name that says it all. The sky truly was living when I hunted with Living Sky Outfitters! Located in southern Saskatchewan, Living Sky Outfitters is a place really worth considering. First off they have the birds. Lots of birds. It's also a great area for mixed bag hunting with plenty of ducks, dark and light geese. The snow goose hunting in particular is outstanding. Jeff's accommodations are excellent as well. Comfortable sleeping quarters, good food, and a great "shop area" where you can hang out, and organize your equipment. Also, Jeff and his partner Trevor were born and raised in the area and have a great reputation and relationship with the farmers. That's real important and pretty much guarantees a quality hunt.

cartersI've hunted with Roy Carter at the Big Island for several years now. There's a reason for this. He offers some of the best Mallard hunting in the lower 48. That's right, I'm talking Kansas. And here's the real kicker, the Big Island has some outstanding flooded green timber hunting. You heard me right, green timber hunting in Kansas. And if that's not enough, Roy owns a steak joint in town that has some of the best food I've ever had on the Flyway Highway!

Located right on the edge of the Boreal Forest in central Saskatchewan, Goose Haven offers world class duck, goose and black bear hunting. Goose Haven has some of the first fields the birds hit when they come out of the forest. This means huge numbers of uneducated birds. The lodging and accommodations are first rate as well. You can't go wrong with a trip to this place!

Located in the west central part of Saskatchewan, Highland Outfitters is right in the middle of a major migration path for snow geese. I'm talking millions of snow geese. This is one of my top choices for going after the white birds. You can also shoot some dark geese as well as ducks. But if you like snow goose hunting, you need to get in touch with Cory at Highland Outfitters!

Louisiana MarshThere's something special about hunting on the Louisiana coast. They call this area "America's wetlands" for good reason. These coastal marshes are the wintering grounds for huge numbers of migratory waterfowl. As a matter of fact, Louisiana harvests more ducks than any other state. Mike Smith runs a great operation down there. Excellent accommodations, great cajon food, and outstanding hunting are a given with Louisiana Marsh Guide Service!

Pepper SloughSouth Dakota is known for pheasant hunting but it also offers great waterfowl hunting as well. Marty Maciel with Pepper Slough Outfitters offers both. With thousands of acres to hunt, Marty will put you on pheasants and ducks no problem. We shot limits of ducks in the morning, had a great meal and nap back at the lodge, then shot roosters in the afternoon. This is a great place for this type of "combo hunt". I highly recommend Pepper Slough Outfitters!

This operation offers world class waterfowl and black bear hunting. Dean is located right on the edge of Canada's boreal forest. The birds come out of the forest each Fall and Dean has first crack at them! He also digs individual pits for each hunter on a typical field hunt. This is the "old school" way to do it and is more comfortable than laying on your back. It also provides better concealment. He's got a great lodge in town and you get his mom's home cooking!

He also has a very unique layout blind that holds multiple hunters. He's located in a prime location so the hunting is outstanding. The lodge in town is very nice and the couple who own/operate it are two of the best cooks I've encountered on the Flyway Highway!


Mallard Point Duck Hunts

Location - Paragould, AR
Contact name - Keith Shumard
Web site - www.mallardpoint.net
Phone - 870-573-6771

Flooded green timber duck hunting is my favorite way to shoot ducks. There's something about leaning up against a 100 year old oak tree in thigh deep water waiting for the ducks to spill into the hole from the canopy of tree tops above. When everything is right, it's arguably the most awesome experience in waterfowl hunting!

You can experience this type of hunting at Mallard Point. Also, their lodge on the famous Black River in Brookings, Arkansas is a sight to see. It's right on the tree lined river bank and built up on stilts since it's surrounded by water most of the season. It's easily the coolest lodge we've been in on the Flyway Highway! They have a second lodge a few miles away that's closer to the many rice fields they hunt as well. Mallard Point offers some of the best field and timber hunting Arkansas has to offer. If we have a chance to get back there again we'll be all over it!

Phone - (877) 924-8440

Ranchland OutfittersThis was actually my first time hunting in Alberta. Man, I sure picked the right spot! Rob runs a great operation. The lodge is one of the nicer ones I've seen in Canada (and I've seen a lot of Canadian lodges over the last 10 years in Manitoba and Saskatchewan). The food at Rob's wife's restaurant is without question the best cuisine I've ever had north of the border.

By the way, the hunting is world class as well. They have Greater Canada Geese, Lesser Canada Geese, Specks, Snows, Ross' Geese, Mallards, and Pintails. If you are looking for an Outfitter that cares about each hunt, look no further. Ranchland Outfitters is a First Class Waterfowl and Big Game Outfitter.

Saskatoon Waterfowl Outfitters is located in beautiful Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada in the heart of the Central Flyway. Literally millions of waterfowl fly over the prairies of Saskatchewan everyday as they begin their southern migration across Canada to warmer regions.

Leon puts us on these little pot hole lakes and at sunrise the action is incredible! We always stay at the Kenosee Inn Resort Hotel in beautiful Moose Mountain Provincial Park. It's a first class operation run by Daryl Safinuk and Ed Fahlman (www.kenoseeinn.com). If you want to shoot ducks in Saskatchewan, you need to contact Moose Mountain Outfitters!
