Prairie Outdoors: The Unofficial Start to Fall
Fall Fishing Season in High Gear
The water is cooling off and the days are getting far shorter. The roar of fishing boats has already subsided on many lakes as many cabin owners have put their boats on their trailers and pulled their docks out of the water. The Sepetember Labour Day Long Weekend is usually the unofficial end to summer across the Prairie Provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. For the dedicated anglers, this means less fishing pressure, fewer boats, and fish that are turning from their summer laziness to early fall feeding.
The Beginning of Hunting Season
The first day of September arrives and the sound of shotguns can be heard as the day begins. The hunting season is finally here and waterfowl are being hunted across the prairies. Big game hunters will need to begin their preparations, getting gear ready and sighting in the rifles for when the rut will be on as the days grow shorter and cooler.
Many Bow Hunters are already in their stands, knowing that the early season is both the best time to find that velvet antlered deer and to catch the elusive bucks before they become more wary with the increasing human presence in their territory.
We help connect hunters with the great outdoors in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba to enjoy the world class hunting, fishing and camping. If you are looking for a hunting adventure, we help you find the hunting outfitter, guided hunting trip, fishing lodge, or campground that matches your outdoor quest. Check out our Outfitters, Guides and Lodges pages. Many hunting outfitters are still operating despite the closed border to USA tourists/hunters so now it the time if you have ever wondered what the guided hunting experience is like. We can tell you from personal experience, it is something you can image don’t really understand just how good hunting can be, until you have hunted with the professionals.
Late Season Camping
We have some great resources for helping you find that late season camping spot. Our Camping pages include links to Provincial Parks in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. As most families pack away the tents, sleeping bags, and prep the trailers for storage, campgrounds open up for the hearty campers who prefer the quiet coolness of fall camping. Wondering which campground suits you best? Check out the provincial park ratings in the links just below for each province or go straight to our listings of Provincial Parks and Campgrounds.
