We specialize in hunting Trophy Quality White Tail Deer and Black Bears.
Trophy Whitetail Deer Hunts
We have exclusive outfitting rights on 140,000 acres of prime Saskatchewan White Tail Deer Area. Our hunts are tailored strictly towards hunting mature bucks. The 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”, EVERY time you hunt with us.
We only take 40 hunters per year (8 clients per hunt), so it gives our clients approximately 17,500 acres per person and plenty of mature bucks to hunt. This also puts very little pressure on our bucks and gives them the time needed to grow to the 160 class bucks that we all like to hunt. The lodge is located in the forest near the center of our lease. The lodge is fully modern with all the comforts of a five star hotel including an excellent Chef.
Our average score on bucks taken in the last 3 years is 160 B&C. This is the gross score on these bucks with the largest in the last three years being a 189 inch typical. I have been guiding in this area for 35 years and to date we have taken 4 bucks over 200 inches with the high score to date being a 235 inch non-typical. You should join us and be the one to take him off the top of the list!!!
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 with me and I will send you more information and get you on our waiting list.
Something we do at Otter Creek that very few hunting camps do is that we share the trail camera pictures with our clients/friends. After all it is our job to get you an opportunity at the best buck that we know of. It is much easier to pass up a 150 class buck when you KNOW there’s a bigger buck at your stand site every night.
Black Bear Hunts
We offer the traditional Spring bear hunt. Spring bear hunts take place during the month of May. Bear hunts are 6 days.
It is common to have 6 to 8 mature bears in sight at one time (as pictured in our bear information). It is common to take bears weighing over 400 pounds on this hunt.
We have a very good population of bears on our hunting lease, as well as some brown and blonde color phase bears. We do not put a lot of pressure on our bears, so you will see several bears every night. Since we only hunt bears in the evenings, you have plenty of time during the day to go fishing for Rainbow Trout & Splake (hybrid trout).
Ron, Will & I wanted to thank you and all the crew there for an absolutely wonderful time hunting your trophy whitetail deer at Otter Creek. I have been hunting Saskatchewan for 24 years and the years at Otter Creek have been the best hunting experience in both my sons life and mine. This was our 10th year with you and cannot wait for the 11th in 2018. The hunting experience for a trophy hunter could not be better with all of the 160+ bucks you have at Otter Creek. The best way to describe the week is to say it really was like hunting with friends. Says a lot about you how it all stays together, and the environment you create. We all came to Otter Creek as hunters and we left as friends. We look forward to November 2018 to once again be part of this wonderful experience. We sincerely can’t thank you enough!! All the best to you Ron, additionally Ron the best Chef in Canada, Greg, Cal, & Michael the most trusted friends/guides a hunter could have and Geraldine, Ron’s wife who sends many of the sweet things that helps burn the calories in the cold weather.
My journey to find the right Canadian outfitter for Whitetail hunting started in 2007. After trying 3 camps I found OTTER CREEK and I’m glad I did. I am done searching. If you want a first class hunt, in a top of the line camp, with a staff that has one goal in mind-to help you get a trophy deer – then come to OTTER CREEK and start making memories that last a lifetime. From my experience you’ll be hard pressed to find a more professional guide and class act operation than Ron and his team. OTTER CREEK is my “home” for the rest of my Canadian Whitetail hunts. Thanks to Ron Lavoie and his team – Like we say at the poker table, “I’m all in” with OTTER CREEK.
I will never forget the very first morning I hunted in Saskatchewan with you. I had stared at all of the trail cam pictures on the wall the night before and was in awe at the size of the antlers. I was trying to understand what a 5-1/2 year old buck looked like as I had hunted in Saskatchewan with several other outfitters for years and they didn’t hunt bucks this old and of this size. That morning the temperature was around zero or a little below. There was about 6” of snow on the ground and I was lucky enough to ride to my stand in a new UTV. I settled into my stand and it was only a few minutes until I could see deer. As more light allowed, I was straining with my binoculars to confirm what I was looking at as I couldn’t believe it. A double drop tine buck that I had seen on the wall was at the bait eating. I couldn’t find brow tines and I thought to myself, I can’t shoot this buck after hunting only 5 minutes!!! I let him go and I’m glad I did. I watched deer in full rut all morning and at 11:00 am I shot a 162” 5-1/2 year old! What a hunt!!!!
I have been hunting Whitetail in Saskatchewan since 1994. In 2001 I found Otter Creek. I have been there ever since. Ron & his crew work hard for you and have the newest and the best equipment of all camps. No “piggy back” on 4 wheelers. You have your own. There is no favourtism. What Ron tells you is 100%. No “sugar coating”. Food and lodging is the best in Saskatchewan.
My son and I have hunted with Ron for years and have had very good success. Ron and his guides are second to none. Hunting and accomodations are excellent and also has an excellent chef. If you’re looking for the buck of a lifetime and are patient, Ron puts 100% to get you a trophy white tail and a full 8 day hunt. We have taken several trophy Boone and Crocket Bucks, scores are as follows 185 174 160 185.
A great friendship started about eighteen years ago when we booked a hunt with Otter Creek Outfitters. We have hunted deer and/or bear with them most every year since then. Ron, Geraldine, and the staff of Otter Creek are the best we have ever had the pleasure and fortune to hunt with. Their attention to detail and the extra little things they all do add to an already fantastic hunting experience. The equipment provided is always in good working order so that half of our hunt is not spent trying to get quads and side by sides running. We enjoy the warm and cozy lodge that has a very roomy sitting area and private bedrooms along with gathering in the dining area to enjoy cook Ron’s awesome culinary expertise. We have harvested numerous gross 160 – 170 class bucks and the effort Ron and his guides put into finding big deer to hunt is without ceasing. We feel this gives us the potential to take the deer of our lifetime every time we hunt. Our opinion is Otter Creek is unique in its ability to be warm, friendly, and personable, but at the same time be totally professional and do everything to run a top notch, organized hunt. Whether we have hunted as a couple or as a family, Otter Creek has been the best!! They are truly our friends! And besides that – it’s just a good ol’ fun time!
Otter Creek is truly a big buck hunter’s paradise. I have hunted with Otter Creek on and off for the past 15 years and have seen the dedication they put into hunting. The area to the south is prime forest fringe along farm fields and stretches north deep into the boreal forest. Ron’s stand placements are perfect weather it’s alongside a cut, high atop a ridgeline or the back of a meadow. His pictures tell the story of what’s in the area and often times you will catch a traveler never seen on camera. My brother did just that, pulling the trigger on a heavy horned buck a few years back. These guys do a great job by keeping your head in the game when need be. They know the deer and know the area and sharing local knowledge with you always. You will not find a more dedicated staff that works harder than this crew period!! They are serious about shooting mature bucks and the program they run produces these giants year after year. I was one of those guys who let many walk and finally had my turn at a giant. Words can’t describe the excitement when holding your trophy, telling the story and taking some amazing pictures. Can hardly wait to get back in the stand, thank you Ron and Crew for the great memories and hope to make many more in years to come.
