Taxidermy Services

Upon drop off of your animal for trophy preservation, a 50% deposit of the quoted price from our taxidermist is required for your desired mount. The remaining balance is payable upon completion of the work. We will call you when the mount is complete.

All completed mounts are subject to a storage fee of $50 per month if not picked up.

Crating costs will be estimated at the time of drop-off if you require it to be shipped to your home location.

Shipping costs will be your responsibility based on your desired method of transport (i.e. bus, Canada Post, or by registered courier).

If shipping to the Continental U.S., it is your responsibility to apply for applicable import permits of the game species you are importing.

Driving Here

If driving for your hunt, you will be met in Simmie, Saskatchewan, which is approx. 40 minutes southwest of Swift Current, 3.5 hours from Regina, 2 hours from Medicine Hat, and 4.5 hours from Calgary. Driving is a great travel method if you intend on taking your meat home with you.

Flying Here

Our team will pick you up and drop you off at Medicine Hat Regional Airport (YXH), which is serviced by Air Canada and Integra Air.

Air Canada (Air Canada Express) offers daily scheduled non-stop flights to and from Calgary (YYC), with connections to many other Canadian cities, U.S. and International destinations. Check out Air Canada’s schedule here.

Integra Air offers non-stop flights to and from Edmonton (YEG) on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, with connections to many other Canadian cities, U.S. and International destinations. Check out Integra Air’s schedule here.

Trip Insurance

All hunters are encouraged to purchase insurance in the event of unexpected trip delays or interruptions. Last minute cancellations or early departures due to emergencies may be unavoidable. As such, adequate insurance is worth the cost.

BORDER CROSSING

U.S. residents and clients from other countries travelling through the United States or directly to Canada should note that passports are required. All foreign nationals travelling to Canada from other countries must comply with Immigration Canada’s entry requirements.

An important new entry requirement is now in effect for hunters arriving internationally by air. Visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to or transit through Canada need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid Canadian visa. Entry requirements for other methods of travel (land, sea) have not changed

Contact the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to obtain up-to-date information on import regulations specific to U.S. hunters. All other international visitors should check with local authorities for import regulations applicable to their country of origin and any country they may be travelling through. Remember, export permits may be required for each country you leave.

Entry to Canada

Don’t forget your passport and be sure to verify your eligibility for entry into Canada. Criminal records, including even a D.U.I., may prevent travel to Canada. Be sure to contact the Canada Border Services Agency for additional information. www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca

Firearms Info

A confirmed Non-Resident Firearm Declaration is required to bring a firearm into Canada. This form must be presented in triplicate and unsigned to a Canada Customs Officer at your first point of entry into Canada. There is a small fee, which is not included in your hunt price. For information, call the Canadian Firearms Program at 1-800-731-4000 or +1-506-624-5380.

HAL Number

A valid Hunting, Angling and Trapping License (HAL) number is required to purchase hunting and fishing licenses in Saskatchewan. Complete the online HAL application and purchase the HAL card. Upon submission, your HAL card will be mailed to you. Be sure to give yourself enough time to receive your card before you arrive for your hunt.

Saskatchewan Hunters’ and Trappers’ Guide

The Hunters’ and Trappers’ Guide is available annually from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment to provide an up-to-date listing of the bag limits, season dates, wildlife management zones (WMZs), regulations, new programs and other relevant information for hunters and trappers. You can view it here.

Travel Costs

Flights or driving expenses are your responsibility. You are responsible for all costs to transport hunt trophies home. These costs vary depending on species, how much you are taking home and what the airline charges. Be sure to check with the airline to ensure that you can take your trophy home with you.

ADDITIONAL HUNT COSTS

We want to ensure that all hunters have the best possible time on their hunt and are aware of costs and what to expect during their hunt. We do not want there to be any surprises. Hunt costs are non-refundable. All hunt costs and license fees are subject to 5% GST and 5% PST. All hunt costs are in US dollars.

Tipping

It is customary for each hunter to tip your guide and cook when on an outfitted hunt. A standard tip amount is around 10-15% of the hunt cost, of which approximately 1/4 goes to the cook and 3/4 to your guide. Although any amount you can afford is appreciated. Please let them know that their efforts and skills are appreciated.

Meat Processing

You will need a cooler to transport your meat. Clients who do not want their wild game meat or parts of their wild game meat must still have this unwanted meat processed at their cost. The meat will be distributed to families in need, providing an opportunity to give back to the local community.
