Important Information for our U.S. guests
We received notification from CBSA advising of a new version of the pre-processing letter for non-resident hunters who wish to process their firearm prior to entering Canada. This option is only available if they are coming into Canada through Saskatoon, in other words direct from US landing in Saskatoon.
If there are any questions regarding this please contact the Canada Border Services Agency office in Saskatoon at 306-975-4755.

Sorry to say but the boarder is still closed to travel only allowing essential travelers that have been tested for the Covid virus within 3 days of travel . Vaccines are being done through out the world hopefully will catch up so we all can see some return to normal . We in Saskatchewan have had a mild winter again this year so the good news is our Whitetail and Bears are in good condition making this year a great year for hunters . We did not have any hunters last year so we seen some " slammers ". Our camps are pretty much full for this year with the exception of a couple of spots so if your interested contact us a.s.a.p either Mark @ 1 403 801 0747 or Ron @ 1 306 441 1602 .

Spring is evolving ever slowly temperatures are staying low leaves aren't out yet our Alfalfa is slow coming how ever the deer are plentiful in the field we counted over 70 last evening . We are all tiring of Covid restrictions unfortunately there is nothing we can do to speed up boarder openings . We are still thinking the Whitetail hunts this November will be going forward . Since we have not had Black Bear hunts the Saskatchewan Wild Life Association & DNR has announced the abundance of Bears so asked campers to be vigilant while in forest areas .

We've been out in the forest clearing trails that had huge trees blown over on them mostly due to the strong winds lately .The leaves are out fully now especially after the warmer weather and rains . Saskatchewan is doing better with Covid restrictions how ever other provinces still behind . Still looking good for this years Whitetail season , keeping our fingers crossed , we should see some nice growth on the Bucks this year with the mild winter and not much hunting since we didn't have any Canadian or American hunters .
June 30 / 2021
We still believe boarder will open before 2021 Whitetail hunt . If your booked when possible send a photo of your drivers licence or your HAL number to text 306 441 1602 or nwoutfitters.net , even if you've sent earlier .

We have been encouraged to finally hear discussions at the federal level regarding a reopening plan for the US/Canadian border . Most recently , we are hearing that the preliminary stages for a plan may be specifically for Americans that have been fully vaccinated . This may be the short term reality - key to American clients interested in coming north . ( Saskatchewan Commission of Professional Outfitters )
Saskatchewan has now removed all public health orders — including the province-wide mandatory masking order, as well as capacity limits on events and gathering sizes.
Premier Scott Moe says the province decided to go ahead with full implementation of Step 3 of its Reopening Roadmap because more than 70 per cent of residents over the age of 18 and 69 per cent of those over 12 have now received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Despite the lifting of the health orders, Regina and Saskatoon say they will still keep up extra cleaning in municipal facilities.
