The largest trophy whitetail deer in the world live in our province, thanks to the minerals in our fertile soil, abundant habitat, superior genetics and our northern climate. In addition, the Yorkton area offers upland birds such as the Hungarian partridge.
Yorkton serves as the perfect starting point as well if you are looking for a large game hunt. The campgrounds and parks in the area will provide you with the rest and relaxation you will need for the trip up north where moose and black bear await you. Accommodations can also be found at the many hotels in communities both large and small.
Our weather can be best described as widely variable. Our climate is mostly temperate and sunny. Fall hunting season offers cool mornings and evenings and bright days which accentuate the incredible autumn colors.
The best news to come out of Canada in the last few years is that habitat conditions and breeding duck populations have dramatically improved throughout our area. Southern Saskatchewan is North America's most important waterfowl production area and Yorkton is right in the middle of all the action.
According to recent spring surveys, the duck breeding population in southern Saskatchewan totalled more than 8 million birds.
