This adventure is in the breathtaking prairie pothole region of Southern Alberta. Mid September the migration south begins for millions of waterfowl. Massive numbers of ducks and geese migrate through this area filling up on high energy barley, peas, and corn. With over 6.5 million acres of private ground, this outfitter has no problems finding fields loaded with birds as multiple different species of ducks and geese are constantly showing up and staging in the area. These birds will stay for months especially if North America experiences mild winters. Snows, white-fronted (specklebelllies) and pintails come through early and mid migration while the big canada geese and mallards are consistent throughout. This outfitter prides themselves as only using the newest and best equipment available and put forth the extra effort everyday to make your hunt memorable.
This outfitter uses a very nice hotel that offers the following accommodations.
-Complimentary Wi-Fi access (in-room and throughout the property)
