OWNER / GUIDE
Hi I’m Greg Lavoie proud new owner of Chaparral Hunting Adventures. I would like for you to know a little bit about myself.
I was introduced to hunting and the outdoor world at a very young age, my first hunting trip was a White Tail deer hunt at age 7. When the air cooled and the leaves started to turn my Dad and three older brothers were always willing to take the little brother along. It didn’t take long to develop a passion for hunting and the outdoors. When fall rolls around you can be sure I will be out in the forest enjoying every minute out there.
It has been a life long dream of mine to be able to share my passion with others and there is no better way to do it then the Outfitting industry! I have been involved in the Outfitting industry for several years as a guide working with my brother. Chaparral will be my full time job and will have my undivided attention. We are very excited for the future of Chaparral Hunting Adventures!
Hi, my name is Calvin Pankratz and I am very excited to be joining the Chaparral team.
I have hunted this area for over 30 years and have recently moved here to call this area my home. Every fall I look forward to getting out into the forest to prepare for the upcoming hunting seasons. I am looking forward to guiding and giving Chaparral's clients the opportunity to harvest a world class whitetail or black bear.
I look forward to meeting Chaparral's client's and working with the team to make everyone's hunt a memorable adventure.
Hi, my name is Steve Bartlett. I have been fishing and hunting the Turtle Lake and area for 30 plus years and am excited to join the Chaparral Hunting Adventures Team. I look forward to showing our Chaparral clients what Saskatchewan has to offer, possibly harvesting a world class Whitetail, Bear or catching a trophy fish.
I started guiding deer hunters in the fall of 1996. I have not missed a year of guiding since that date. I joined the Chaparral gang in about 2006. The fact that I’m still working for Chaparral speaks for itself! During the pre-season and five weeks of guiding we work hard. The hours are long and at times the weather is nasty. However, many’s the time when, after deploying my hunters in the early morning, I stop my side by side to admire the rising sun. I often tell myself how lucky I am to be there enjoying nature at its best. Bring on November!
I have been fortunate enough to have always called Saskatchewan my home. I have hunted the Turtle Lake area for over 20 years. It was only natural that my path in life lead to guiding.
The crew at Chaparral is second to none. I always look forward to meeting new clients as well as seeing all of our returning clients/friends.
I grew up on a farm in the Spiritwood area and have always called northwest Saskatchewan home. I enjoy the outdoors and love sharing in the excitement of the hunters in their quest for that amazing trophy whitetail deer or black bear.
I am excited to have joined the Chaparral team of Greg, Shelley and their experienced guides. I have over 30 years of cooking experience and love trying new ideas and recipes. I look forward to gathering new clients and old friends together in the dining room for good food, great conversation and long lasting new friendships.
