Discounted Trophy Whitetail Hunts at Rugby Lake Lodge

I just wanted to pass along some news that I got from my friends at Rugby Lake Lodge that they're offering a discount on hunts booked before May 1.  I know it's short notice, but if you're interested and can't commit before then, their regular prices are a bargain.  Dave and Jacqui Haukeness run a great operation and the deer are huge.  They are located on beautiful Rugby Lake northwest of Dryden Ontario in the heart of trophy whitetail country.  I hunted with them in 2007 on a solo trip and can tell you it was incredible.  The fact that I screwed up and shot a two year old buck (talk about ground shrinkage) doesn't reflect on the trophy quality of this area- they have big bucks, and they have them in spades.  The picture I'm sharing of this other buck doesn't do justice to his true size- his rack wasn't much to look at, but he weighed close to 300 lbs. and looked like a linebacker- no neck. 

Ontario's deer are every bit as big as the other Canadian provinces including Saskatchewan, and Rugby Lake Lodge offers an incredible value at regular price- comfortable scenic lodging, great hosts, incredible hunting.  Dave is a hunting machine and had 25 stands out when I was there.  They also offer bear and moose hunts, and I hear the fishing in Rugby Lake is fantastic for walleye, lake trout and pike.  If you've been waiting to draw in a place like Iowa or Kansas, or don't think you can afford Saskatchewan, don't overlook northwest Ontario and Rugby Lake Lodge.  I have every intention of going back and archery hunting with Dave and Jacqui again- I'd do it annually if I could manage it.  It was that good.

Fully Guided Archery $800.00/hunter
