Shawn Nyholt was born and raised on a farm near North Battleford , Saskatchewan in a area that is recognized for its world famous waterfowl and whitetail deer hunting. It was here as a young boy, countless hours and cold early mornings were spent following his father through duck marshes or tracking big weary old whitetails to have that one chance to make it happen. These years were the start of what his life is about today. At the age of 30 Shawn’s dreams really came to surface in 2005 when Waterfowl hunting became his main focus. Co-owning and operating a waterfowl guiding business has provided him more time in the field as well as a chance to sharing stories. Developing friendships and ideas with fellow hunters is something he looks forward to ever hunting season.

Blair Michaud was born and raised on a farm 20 miles west of North Battleford, Saskatchewan with an instilled love of farming, I went to the University of Saskatchewan and received a diploma in agriculture, spending 7 years working and producing hybrid canola seed throughout western Canada and in southern California. My wife and I lived in Lethbridge, Alberta for five years during that time. In 2003 I had the opportunity to purchase a waterfowl guiding business with my partner Shawn Nyholt. My availability to guide was minimal in the beginning as I was too far from the camp’s location. My partner Shawn has successfully developed the guiding business to be where it is today. In 2007, I decided to change careers and become a Registered Nurse as a result, my family and I have since moved back home to North Battleford and I am currently working in the Intensive Care Unit at the Battleford Union Hospital. I have a wonderful wife and daughter, Jamie and Paige who have been very supportive during my career change and goal of running a guiding business. As a family we are very excited to be back in North Battleford and pursue our dream of developing an exceptional guiding business.

The most common questions and concerns that first time deer hunters have.

What is the weather like and how cold is it when I will be hunting?
Saskatchewan fall and early winter seasons very from year to year. You might experience a range from mild, near freezing conditions to lots of snow and cold. Temperatures in the morning can range into the minus twenties but at Pro-Staff Outdoors we use stands with heaters which will keep you comfortable in extreme weather conditions.

What kind of stands do i use?
We use ladder stands, ground blinds, elevated blinds (8-10 feet up), double bow blinds and 1 man pop up tent blinds.

When is the Rut?
The rut in Saskatchewan can run any time in November. The pre-rut is usually the second week in November with bucks chasing. Does usually are not receptive. Week 3 and 4 in November usually brings the peak rut activity. 

What Caliber of gun should i use?
The bucks in our area have enormous body size therefore you want something that will stop them in their tracts the most common caliber is a 300. 7mm and 30.06. 

What happens to the trophy buck after i harvest Him?
When you harvest your trophy of a life time you have two options. First, we cape the animal and freeze the hide and clean up the skull for transport back home with you. Or, we cape the animal and ship it to a taxidermist within our province.

What are the normal tips?
Tips are not expected but they are appreciated. Our cooks and guides work very hard to make your hunt a trip of a lifetime. Most clients use 5-10% of the total cost of the hunt as a guide.

Is there airport transportation?
We do not supply airport transportation. It is your responsibility to get from the airport to the lodge. Once you arrive at the lodge we will take care of you after that. 

Is alcohol allowed?
Alcohol is allowed in the camp, but it is not supplied, please bring your own.

Is there cell service?
There is cell service in all areas of our camp

Do you have radios?
Yes, we have radios to communicate between guides and hunters. This adds another safety and convenience factor
