Hudson Bay has been called a hunter’s paradise and rightly so. The region is comprised of the Porcupine Provincial Forest and the Pasquia Provincial Forest. Excellent success rates are being recorded every year for elk, white tail deer, moose and bear. As well, the region provides an excellent habitat for geese and ducks. Upland game consists of ruffled, spruce, and sharp-tailed grouse populations.
Although Hudson Bay is known as the “Moose Capital of the World” it could be called the “Big Game Capital of the World” with high populations of elk, deer, and bear as well.
The white-tailed deer is probably the most prevalent form of wildlife in the Hudson Bay region. A doe with her fawns, or a young buck grazing at the roadside or peering from the edge of the forest – all are common sights around and in the town limits of Hudson Bay
The provincial forests surrounding Hudson Bay are home to the black bear and they have been known to wander into town.
Woodland caribou are occasionally sighted in the Hudson Bay area, however, there is no hunting season for this species.
While elk and moose hunting are for Saskatchewan residents only, local outfitters are on hand to guide and provide additional services for non-resident hunters of deer and bear. For a list of outfitters around Hudson Bay see the business directory.
