Johnson’s Lone Pine Location
Located in Southern Saskatchewan adjacent to Chaplin Lake.
Our guide, Lance Menke, was born & raised on this land
and has hunted since he could hold a gun.
Lance and his family personally own 7,000 acres of land and have written permission on an additional 10,000 acres of prime goose and duck habitat,
our area sees minimal hunting pressure.
The camp is located in the heart of bird hunting. Our rural farm house will comfortable sleep six to eight hunters. You can even hunt from the front door.
Hearty home cooked meals will be provided.
The focus of your hunt can be geese or ducks. We will discuss your personal itinerary to insure you a successful hunt.
September 7 and up to October 12, geese may only be hunted in the morning. After October 12 you may hunt for geese morning and evening.
September and October
We have a high population of White Geese
& Speckled Bellies (which are the best eating)
Hunt birds coming into decoys in fields. Hunt in blinds over sloughs, stalk sloughs. Hunt in blinds on large population of ducks including Mallards, Wood Ducks, Canvas Backs, Blue & Green Wing Tent, Red Head, Rice Ducks and Sand Hill Cranes
These birds are native to our area. There are good population during September and the first half of October then they tend to taper off.
If you have never hunted for Hungarian partridge, this is one bird you will keep coming back for. Spend your time walking mile long hedge rows or vacant overgrown farm sites. You can walk and stalk or let your own dog work for you. Hungarian partridge are a small bird and a very fast flyer or you may need to hone your skills.

Soft case for field, hard case for travel, shell vest, ear plugs, duck call, goose call, camera film, small flashlight, ammo, cloths, binoculars, alarm clock, gloves, waterproof boots – waders, for late dates insulated coveralls.
