HARTLAND LODGE

Breathtaking, Panoramic Views & Impressionable Hospitality

Hartland's beautiful new lodge treats you to a breathtaking view of both the Big Valley in the Blue Hills and a spectacular panoramic view of the Canadian Plains.

To ensure a quality hunt, Hartland usually books approximately 4-5 hunters per group, larger groups can be arranged for the value hunt. The lodge can accommodate ten hunters/guests at a time in private or semi–private rooms.

Since our lodge is located only one hour from the airport, hunters usually arrive in the early afternoon with time to sight in their gun/bow and also get in an extra late afternoon and evening hunt. Clients who must take a very early return flight, will be taken to a hotel (of their choice) in Regina the evening before their flight departs. Costs of the hotel are the responsibility of the client.

From the deck of the lodge you can hear the spine-tingling sound of bugling bulls and the rattling antlers of fighting bucks. On clear nights you may be lucky to be treated to the unforgettable beauty of the dance of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).

If time permits after your hunt you may wish to take other local activities; these may include: pre-arranged migratory game bird hunts, taking in tourist attractions (Casino, Spa, and much more) in Moose Jaw (25min) from Hartland's lodge ... OR you may wish to simply relax and enjoy a quiet evening in front of Hartland's fireplace. Enjoy the flickering flames, the crackling logs as you watch the game or read a favourite book.


JUDGING & SCORING TROPHIES

Accurately and quickly determining the score of your trophy can be very challenging.

At Hartland your guide will ensure you are satisfied with the trophy animals’ size and price before a shot is taken. Although your guide will advise you as to the trophy’s class, ultimately it is your decision to take a particular animal. If you have taken the advice of the guide and harvest a trophy larger than was contracted for, no upgrade fee will be charged.

All SCI measurements will be made by Hartland’s Qualified SCI Master Measurer.

Hartland offers rifles and ammunition, should you need them. These are available for a fee of $50 USD per hunter.
