Excuse me for brining this up again guys, but I'm trying to plan a trip to Canada with some buddies. We're from Md and want to freelance. From everything I've read in searches, it can be tough getting permission on lands East of Manitoba. It looks like we're in for a long drive. Can anyone offer some general advice. We have 8 guys going so it looks like we'll be taking 2 vehicles. From the searches, it looks like everyone heads for Saskatoon and then fans out from there. Can anyone be a little more specific about what areas to hunt? How much is lodging up that way in general? How many decoys do you typically use....if the logistics become too much of a trouble, we may have to look into a guide, but would rather not....we're on a very stict budget and like the satifsfaction of doing it ourselves. Does Manitoba get specks? What's the best time of year for the major push of all species? And most importantly, has anyone done this before who would like to going our party and show a bunch of goose-killing fools from Md where to go? I'm gonna post this again on a couple boards so thanks for any help.
