If you were to drive an extra 10-12 hrs into Sask I can help you out there.
One point to note is that SK and I assume MB as well (especially the northern farmland/forest fringe zones) have had 2 nasty winters in a row and the deer herd has suffered. No panic yet (there were plenty of deer and they could have used a little thinning anyway) but from talking to the folks back home numbers are noticeably down.
I found out alot last night about MN, I was thinking about maybe finding a place to set up camp and get myself a hog but Ive found out there arent many left and that only residents to MN can hunt them without tags. There is no open seasons for non-residents and most of the other hunts you need a guide. I'm one of those fellas that dosent like to use a guide if I dont have too. Oh well Ill have to find another hunt. I'll stick to hunting deer, moose and bear here we have lots. Bear hunting less then 2 weeks YEAHYA wish me luck.
First of all, if you haven't gone winter backpacking, it needs to happen in the near future. It puts a very unique twist on the summer version of the activity. Yes, it's cold but it's nothing that being prepared can't remedy. Beyond it's therapeutic and recreational value, I think it is a very good tool for the big game hunter as well. I don't think that you can spend too much time getting to know the ins and outs of the area that you hunt. And there is no better way to gain experience in...
