Description: 

Want to be an outfitter?  Why not start at the top with some of the best allocations in the province?  This outfit has it all and affords the outfitter a long season with high revenues.  Starting with black bear in the spring, move on to fishing during the summer, then whitetail and waterfowl in the fall.  Did I say good revenues…..you bet!  If you've got the talent and the desire, this operation is all you really need.

The lodge of this operation is located on the shores of Tobin Lake and from that location deer and bear and great fishing cam be had.  There is also another satellite camp which boasts several cabins and allows the operator to extend his operation so clients may have full time in the field.   As if that isn't enough.  There are angling guide licences on the Diefenbaker River and Reservoir.  Also waterfowl licences on Diefenbaker Lake.

As you can see there are good inventories of decoys, blinds, tree stands, camp equipment, motorized equipment, generators, boats, motors, etc. to operate the business.

The present owner has not operated the business to any extend in the past couple of years due to other commitments.  You know what that means, the deer are bigger, the bear are heavier, the fish are larger and the birds plentiful.  Not only will you be getting an unbelievable selection of licences and equipment in very desirable areas of Saskatchewan but you will be stepping into trophy animals on your first hunt.

This opportunity can go both ways.  A spectacular corporate retreat where the owner may take advantage of the diversity of hunting and fishing thru a long season.  The other avenue is for a new or established outfitter to step up and take advantage of this diversified operation and become the boss outfitter of Saskatchewan.  In either case this is a hard one to duplicate with great opportunities being sold with the company as a share sale.

Saskatchewan is home to the 'Dakota' strain of Whitetail Deer, the largest Whitetail in North America!  This operation has over 70 stands with 54 insulated and heated. The remainder are ladder stands or tree stands, spread over more than 500 square miles.

Bear harvest is limited each year, resulting in high numbers of big animals.  The largest to date is 606 lb. and the oldest to date is a 32 year old black bear (the current provincial age record) with many bears in the 10 to 15 year range.  Black Bear in this area also come in unusual color phases with a high percentage of cinnamon and brown etc.

Bird hunting takes place in a region south of Saskatoon with over 2500 sq. mi. of privately owned land.  This region includes all 4 major fly-ways; The Pacific fly-way, The Central fly-way, The Mississippi fly-way and The Atlantic fly-way boasting the highest concentration of snow geese anywhere.  There are decoy trailers and pop-up blinds with radios for communication.

Tobin Lake has been ranked as the best Walleye lake in the world by "In-Fisherman" Magazine & Television Network. The lake has held many records with the previous Saskatchewan record Walleye at 18 lbs. 6oz. Northern Pike fishing is also great!  The largest caught (on fly-fishing gear) was a 46" with the largest caught to date of 38 lb.
