Our deer hunts are tailored strictly towards hunting the mature, high scoring bucks. Our hunts are a full 6 days and with the extensive use of trail cameras we put you in the right place so you have the best chance at that buck of a lifetime.
As part of our management program we have implemented a 145 minimum score with a $1000 penalty for the 2023 season. We are very serious about the management of our deer herd.
We have a very high number of repeat clients. However, if you are interested in hunting a place where you know that you will be hunting 160 class or better bucks, then just get in touch.

Chaparral Hunting Adventures Saskatchewan Whitetail Deer Hunting trips are held in prime deer territory. The area has the potential to produce very big deer with 180-200 inch deer spotted on trail cameras every year. Hunters who are serious about shooting true trophy quality Whitetail Deer keep coming back to Chaparral.
The landscape features big bush surrounded by crop land, swamps, open meadows, rivers and lakes. The Whitetails travel this area in well established paths, from bedding to feeding to rutting, and we follow the deer to know the prime locations to place our tree stands. Our guides track activity along the many natural travel routes and take advantage of natural funnels and crossings.
We have 55 whitetail deer tags. Chaparral Hunting Adventures offers Whitetail Deer hunts with a rifle, muzzle, crossbow or bow. Our hunts are primarily rifle hunts but muzzleloader and archery hunters can choose to hunt either during rifle season or in the earlier non-rifle seasons. It’s hard to find an area of wilderness that is more untouched and remote than Northern Saskatchewan. Our hunts are done in over 130,000 acres of some of the most remote deer country territory available in North America.
The next deer season begins immediately when the previous season ends. Before each season we continuously review the trail cameras and we know how many trophy quality deer we have passing by each location. We also know how many “next year deer” we have in our area, those deer that are just shy of our 145 minimum score and need to grow another year. After deer season we take stock of how many trophy deer we can predict in the area for next season. Please contact us for a current look at our survivors dropbox link, with over 300 trail cam pictures of whitetail deer we will be chasing in our up and coming season.
As we follow the deer throughout the spring and summer, we continue to update the hunting prospects for the coming season.
The same locations stand locations are also great earlier in the Archery and muzzle loader seasons as the deer tend to travel the same territory throughout the seasons. We just may need to get you in a little tighter which we often can do with ground blinds.
We use custom made treestands that we set up in evergreen trees. Our treestands are 3/4 covered with a camo skirt. They are a very large comfortable treestand. We transport our hunters to the stand sites via UTV's, ATV's and Jeeps, depending on the location, weather, and ground conditions.
In Saskatchewan during November the weather in the forest can be very cold at times. We strongly suggest you also read our Whitetail Hunting Gear Tips. Weather doesn’t stop our hunting guides and you will need to be prepared to spend the day in the stand until early evening when the sun goes down.
The hunt starts at daybreak. Long before getting set in your treestand, you will have already had a chance to sit down for an early breakfast in the lodge. Lunches are prepared for you so grab your gear for the day and we are off, travelling to the stands while it is still dark via UTV, ATV, or Jeep. Much of our hunting territory is within cell signal coverage so ensure your batteries are charged. For the more remote areas that we hunt we also use the Garmin Inreach.
A range finder may be handy to measure distances at different stands. It is best to get your ranges measured early in the day or between any deer activity to prevent any unnecessary movement. It’s important to pay attention to scent control as wind direction can shift during the day and you don’t want to provide any clues to the deer regarding your presence. As well, hunter movement should be minimized so proper preparation and placement of your gear to keep everything within arms reach is important. We recommend our clients stay for the duration of the day. We feel this will give them the greatest opportunity to harvest a buck of a lifetime.
When you successfully shoot a whitetail deer, it is important to make careful note of and direction the deer travels after being hit. Contact your guide and he will assist you in tracking and retrieving the deer.
Evenings are spent in the lodge. After a hearty home cooked meal in the dining room, you are free to relax in the lounge area, share stories with your fellow hunters or take in the fresh air sounds of the great Saskatchewan outdoors at night.
