Arriving At The Lodge

  • We will let you know where to park after you unload your gear.

  • Once you are settled in, we will do some paperwork, make sure everyone has their hunting license and discuss the hunting plans.

Schedule - What To Expect

  • Set the alarm for 3 a.m. if you’re hunting early season, we will let you sleep till 4 in the late season. Early mornings are normally cool be prepared. The afternoons can be warm in the early season so you may want to bring a lighter jacket too.

  • Once you are dressed, grab a few snacks and something to drink for the morning hunt. We provide these for you.  

  • We will do the driving. The drive to the field will give you time to wake up - 20 to 45 minutes. Denis will have the right spot picked out ahead of time. 

  • Once at the field, it's time to setup the decoys and blinds. Remember the devil is in the detail – 200 plus decoys later and you’ll understand. Not just any decoys, mind you, full-flocked, full-bodied decoys set out in a perfect spread; Denis’ pride and joy, so be gentle with them! Then there’s the blinds - bale stand-ups, or lay down coffin blinds – you will be in whichever is best suited for the day’s hunt. 

  • After the morning hunt, it's time to pick up the decoys, empty shells and plastic wads. Leave only footprints. 

  • Brunch will be served when you return to the lodge. Be prepared to eat. There will be plenty. 

  • Now it's time to relax, have a beverage, take a nap or clean your gun. Remember to be ready for the afternoon outing. Normally this will be a duck shoot. This could be over water or in a field. Depends where the birds will be. Denis and Brad will have this scouted out ahead of time. 

  • Once back a the lodge, we will have a late dinner and tell stories of the day's hunt. Meals are homemade and again there will be plenty to eat. Late dinner means we could be eating at 10 pm depending on the season. 

  • Now it's time to relax and think about getting to bed. Remember to set you alarm as we do it all again tomorrow.
