Fall / 2023 - MD
PEO provided my group with an exceptional hunting experience. The PEO guides were friendly, engaging and well-prepared. Each guide worked hard to provide my party every opportunity to shoot geese - LOTS of geese. The rental shotguns were clean, well maintained and functioned flawlessly - and we had ample trigger time on each hunt. Likewise, PEO’s layout blinds and decoys were also in excellent condition. The lodging and meal arrangements offered by PEO far surpassed my expectations. The hunter-friendly hotel was clean, accommodating and comfortable. And our meals, each and every one, were delicious. Bottom line: Will I hunt waterfowl in Saskatchewan again - absolutely. Will I book that next hunt with PEO - you betcha!
Fall 2023 - North Battleford, Saskatchewan
A bucket list hunt. Great facilities, top of the line equipment, and the food was delicious. Our group hunted five times and harvested over 200 hundred birds. Guides, Cody, Tanner, Nate, and Corbin were superior. Highly recommend Prairies Edge.
Fall 2023 - North Battleford
A bucket list hunt for me and three buddies. Did not disappoint. Great accommodations, food was awesome, and the lodging was excellent. Guides were knowledgeable, energetic, and friendly. Shout out to Cody, Tanner, Nate, and especially the tall drink of water from Wichita, Corbin. Coda and Kodak were great dogs, and totally added to the ambiance. We shot a total of 214 birds in five different hunts, and this was in warm weather conditions. Highly recommend, and we hope to go back again!!

My son and I had the best hunt ever. These people exceeded my expectations. Thanks to all the guides and their retrievers.
fall 2023 - Saskatchewan
I believe I was the first Australian to hunt with Mike and his great team of guides who I must say are a great bunch of guys they put us on birds every day over the course of the hunt. We were a small group of three so we put our best foot forward and bagged out every hunt on snows, speckled belly and mallards lots of Canada’s which were a bit more cunning but great to see, the dogs worked great retrieving and the boys were fun to be with, this experience is one I will never forget and cherish in hope to come back someday in the future to do it again. So in conclusion if anyone is looking for a great hunt with great people don’t hesitate to call or contact Mike you won’t regret it. For me it was a bit of the unknown what to expect and I was not disappointed. Thanks so much to Mike and his team for a great 3 days A special thanks to Nate who guided us on all bar one hunt, keep up the great work you do and remember which dog to wait for my friend. Best regards Damien Ebbern
Fall 2023 - Caledon, ontario
Mike McLane's Prairies Edge is the best prairie outfitter I have worked with. Just finished my fourth (at least) annual hunt with them, and going back next month. The birds are plentiful in the best location in Saskatchewan. The guides are all pros and most are yearly repeats. If you have much experience on the Prairies, you'll know how important this is: the accommodation at the Golden Eagle Lodge is excellent. A super experience all around.
October 2022 - North Battleford Saskatchewan
We hunted ducks and geese 3 days in mid October. The guides know the territory and puts us in good locations twice a day, with enough birds to limit on ducks and have great goose shooting. The retrievers were very good every hunt tho’ one was hooman. Mike’s team had good humor and was always very knowledge as well as punctual. Additionally, the coordination for meals and lodging makes the whole trip painless. I highly recommend Prairie’s Edge for anyone interested in a duck and goose hunt in Canada.
Fall 2022 - Upstate ny
Mike and his awesome crew of guides did a great job. This hunt was way beyond what we could have hoped for. Every aspect of this hunt was unreal. Very professional and also a lot of fun all at the same time. Thanks to this crew we had a hunt of a lifetime.
September 2022 - Marion, South Carolina
Let me open by saying Mike runs a "Top Shelf" operation. My group hunted Arkansas with numerous outfitters for several years but no more! When it comes to ducks and geese, Prairies Edge is by far my choice. Mike's scouts make a huge difference in knowing where the birds are feeding and roosting. Clean lodging and several nice restaurants to choose from. If you'd like to shoot limits of birds daily, give Mike a call. I'll bet you will be a repeat client like me.
We would like to express our gratitude to you on our experience in October, 2020 with Prairies Edge Outfitters. Myself and five buddies from Southern Manitoba embarked on a nine hour drive to have an experience we hopefully would never forget! And that it was and then some... Our first day was epic and the next were the exact same! Averaging 100 birds a hunt. We are all avid hunters and did not know what to expect. WOW were we amazed! From our guide Kolby and his amazing dog Cliff it is definitely an adventure we will remember for the rest of our lives. We started off as strangers but after the first day we were family. Something has to be said about hunting as a group that brings friends and strangers a close bond that can not be broken. We highly recommend Prairies Edge Outfitting for your next hunting adventure. I'm sure it will be one you will never forget. Once again, Mike, Kolby, and Cliff we hope to see you again next year you are simply the best. - Tyler and the Southern Manitoba Boyz
Great Goose/Duck Hunt
I wanted to let you know that you and your staff met all my expectations and more! After listening to the guides for a couple days I figured out just how much work it takes behind the scenes to make our hunts so successful. Your scouts and guides do a great job!! The accommodations, the food and your equipment were all top notch!
It was a true pleasure meeting you and I hope this will be the first of many hunts we have together!
Fall 2018 - North Battleford, SK
Mike thank-you for a great trip last fall - everything was as promised and / or better. I've hunted with several different outfitters over the last few years and overall you have the best operation I've been with. Your personal communication is polite & timely, the guides are punctual, knowledgeable, have great work ethics and very personable, the set-ups, calling, retrieving (great dogs) and cleaning were all top notch. That was a family trip and everyone loved it. Our entire group wanted to come back and so we are! We'll see you this fall Mike.
Mike, We had an incredible time. We can’t say enough good things about you and all of the guides. We’ll definitely be back. I can’t think of anything we’d request you change. See you in 2019. Until then, stay warm.
Mike, I can not say enough about how great our experience was with you, your company, and your guides. You and your team went above and beyond every expectation I could have ever had for my first experience hunting in Canada. Your professionalism is second to none in my experience in this industry and it shows in every aspect of your company. Everything from being on time, gun safety, food/restaurant choices, and comfort before, during, and after the hunt. At this point I am already working on setting up a hunt for next year and trying to get the people and dates together. I will be attempting to come around the last week in September before the full moon but I will know more once I can get more people committed. Thanks again for everything you are doing up there for us passionate hunters as well as protecting the tradition of hunting for future generations. You deserve much more than words for the experience you have given me and my friends.
October 2018 - Rochester, NY
Hey Mike, Thanks again for an amazing experience. Everything about our tip with you was above and beyond from the hunting to the meals and transportation. Anyone who is serious about waterfowl hunting has Saskatchewan on their bucket list and without fail has very high expectations when they finally get to go. Meeting these expectations has to be a daunting task but you and your team at Prairies Edge Outfitting have it down to a science. In my opinion the key to your success is the scouting and is what sets you apart from other outfitters. The guides are knowledgeable about what birds are in the field, the numbers of birds using the fields and what area of the field to hunt which proves that you guys do your homework. It was a tremendous relief after almost 2 years of planning to have all of our expectations exceeded and became even more apparent when we left. We meet another group in the airport who had almost the opposite experience as us and swore that they would never return to Saskatchewan again, this really opened up our eyes to how lucky we were to have found you. After we told them about our hunt we recommended that they look you up and give you a call as you are a world class outfitter. Thanks again for the awesome experience we we look forward to next year when we come back! If you are looking for a new outfitter in Saskatchewan I would recommend that you look no further and book now! Wesley Marchand
Fall 2018 - Arizona
Our second trip to Prairie's Edge and as usual an excellent hunt in a well-run operation. The guides were knowledgeable and helpful. Special kudos to Austin who brought in wave after wave of birds with his "magic" bird caller. He seemed to speak their language. Thanks again Mike for providing such a great experience. You do a super job. Our second trip to Prairie's Edge and as usual a great hunt in a first class operation. The guides were fantastic. Special kudos to Austin who brought in wave after wave of birds with his magic bird caller....he seemed to "speak" their language. Thanks again for everything, Mike...you really have it all together.
Hey Mike, Thank you again for a fantastic trip. You, your guides, and scouts are the best. For those that haven't done this trip, it all starts with the scouts, and Mike's guys are fantastic. Lots of birds and opportunities at pretty much whatever you choose to hunt. Equally important to us, we requested a couple of "off the menu" items when booking, and you came through 100% on everything we agreed upon. No quibbling or trying to change things up, it ALL happened just like we discussed. You couldn't have been more professional, accommodating, and an overall cool guy. The hunting, communication, accommodations and meals were all exceptional. Like I told you, we had done one Canada goose hunt a couple years ago. The owner was so dishonest, and ran such a poor operation, I hesitate to even call him an "outfitter". Not only did we have to drive our rental vehicle to the fields because he didn't have enough transportation for the paying hunters, he doesn't even use legitimate guides. He sends his paying hunters out with nothing more than another hunter who he makes a deal with to "guide" in exchange for free hunting. And by the way, this "guide" also hunts alongside the paying customers, and HIS birds count toward the daily limit (reducing the number of birds paying customers can shoot). We almost wrote of Canada for good. Thank goodness we gave it another try with you, I can't tell you how pleased we were with your operation, honesty, and professionalism. It's pretty much a guarantee we will be back to hunt with you again!! Thanks, and take care, Mike (Mike, I don't have any pics on my computer yet, feel free to use any of the pics Foster took if you decide you want to use our "testimonial".
Thanks Mike and crew. I had a great time hunting with you guys!! My expectations were certainly met and surpassed from every part of the trip. I will be back next fall with as many friends that I can convince to join me. With all the pictures and meat I brought home, it shouldn't be hard. Patiently awaiting next fall, Spencer
We could not have been more pleased. everyone worked their tail off to make us happy and have great hunts!! To anyone trying to save by purchasing food and ammo on site, forget it. cost in Canada is much higher than the usa.
Hi Mike, Karin and I want to thank you for running what we consider the best hunt we have ever been on. The guides, the accommodations, the food and the professionalism of the staff was second to none. The hunting and the equipment were excellent. We met some very nice people. You run a first class operation. We cannot thank you enough for a terrific experience.
We all had a great experience shooting snows with you and your crew!! Hopefully we will be back very soon to blast away again!! Cheers,
You all did a great job putting us on the birds! We had an absolute blast!! Thanks again for the great experience, we hope to get back up there sooner than later and hope your season ended as a success. It sure is slow hunting down here but should be getting a push of birds soon.
Yours in Conservation,
Mike, It was a Fantastic trip!! I was very impressed with your operation and the accommodations were excellent!! Very Well Done!!
Looking forward to going again next year!!
Thanks again for such a wonderful three days. You run such a professional operation and your guides are the best. From top to bottom that was one of the most memorable hunting trips of my life. Heidi and I can't get over how much fun we had and we can't wait to do it again. I'll be back next year if I don't go on the ultimate Dove hunt in Argentina. I sent you some video this am, hope you got it. Thanks again for such a magical trip. Later, Bill and Heidi Hafner.
Fall 2014 - Texas
Mike, Thank you so much for an incredible hunt! Canada is not a bucket list item any more, but rather an annual event! The hunt, the accommodations, the food, and all the staff were first class!! We will see you next season!
Many Thanks for another great Saskatchewan hunt! Enjoy your 1.5 "days off" and best wishes for a safe and productive season finish and we hope to see you again next year! John B.
Mike, Just wanted to let you know we really enjoyed our hunt with you and Barry. You guys did everything possible to make this a safe and enjoyable hunt. All days we had great shooting and the last morning was simply fantastic! Derek and I are already trying to get a group together for a return trip next year. Will be in touch soon, Harold.
I thought that I was checking off something on my bucket list when I first signed up for this hunting trip. As it turned out, I’m hoping this will be an annual event until the day I die. I had told my good friend Jim Ingram that I would make all the arrangements and that I was going to try this new guide I was hearing about. It was also something he had also always wanted to do, and although I had been to Alberta years ago – that trip paled in comparison to Saskatchewan and The Battlefords. Our guide and owner of Prairies Edge Outfitting, Mike McLane was a fantastic host, knew where the birds were, had great relationships with the farmers, and worked his butt off for us. We had three days of the best waterfowl hunting I’ve ever even heard about. I couldn’t load my gun fast enough – really! We met some great new friends, limited out , and had the best accommodations and meals one could imagine. (Breakfast after the hunt: three eggs , three pieces each of ham, bacon, and sausage, and…three giant pancakes.) I hesitate to even write this because Mike is getting such rave reviews by hunters, that I probably will have a difficult time even getting a spot on the list. It’s only Dec. 2012 – but come to think of it – better make a reservation now. Thanks Mike, Jim and I will see you next year and will probably bring our sons with us.
Mike, I hope all is well with you and your family, again thank you for the hunt of a life time last year. My hunting experence with you was everything that I dreamed a Canada hunt would be. I have had a few folks ask me for a review of your services I have talked to them and recommend you highly thank you again and please feel free to continue to use me as a reference. Have a wonderful day and will talk soo.
Mike, Thanks again for a trip to remember....we all enjoyed it and appreciated very much the work that you and Braden employed throughout the week. We are hoping to make it back in a few years!
