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.
I've spent countless hours either on my hands and knees or bent over, messing up my back, looking for blood. One such instance I remember most was a hog hunt a few years ago in Mississippi. I had never shot a hog so when I poked a hole in this guy; I was determined to find him. Wearing snake leggings, I crawled on my hands and knees through the briars and the brambles and bushes where a rabbit wouldn't go. I found a spot of blood here and there but never the pig. And lucky for me, I didn't find...
