Whitetail Deer

Saskatchewan is considered the number one place in the world to harvest a trophy whitetail deer and DNA Guiding’s exclusive outfitting area is no exception. We host up to 50 whitetail deer hunters per year with an average success rate of 75 percent. A very important aspect of our business is allowing our bucks to grow old enough to become true trophies. We encourage our clients to take mature animals only.


DNA clients hunt mainly from fully enclosed ground blinds but also offer several ladder stands. Stands are baited with grain and alfalfa with an average shot distance of 100 yards. Because wind direction is crucial, you may hunt several stands over the course of your hunt. Hunters should be prepared for cold temperatures and the ability to sit long days. Many of our successes are between the hours of 10 AM and 2 PM.

Whitetail Deer Hunts Available (mid October thru November)
Six (6) day hunt: 5400 USD tag and tax included
Nine (9) day hunt: 6500 USD tag and tax included
Twelve (12) day hunt: 7700 USD tag and tax included



Our whitetail clients stay in the lap of luxury. Nancy’s family business, The Hawood Inn, will serve as your home during your visit. These condominium style rooms are located in the town site of Waskesiu inside of Prince Albert National Park. Private bedrooms connected to large living rooms with wood burning fireplaces are comfortable and spacious. Two rooftop hot tubs are welcomed amenities after a long cold day in Saskatchewan’s north. Full maid services are included, as well as elaborate hot breakfasts, bagged lunches, and the Chef’s Nightly Table D’hote. All snacks and non-alcohol beverages are included in your package.
