Pre-Season News Letter
Eagle Lakers,
It’s only 58 days until the opener, Saturday October 15th. This past weekend the crew got all the blinds camouflaged and the property looks great. It took a little longer than normal getting everything ready with all the new blinds that were put in. They are really comfortable! The corn crop on the ranch is basically made. The farmers will start pulling the water off soon. All the crops should be harvested before hunting season. This will really help with the early migration having all our corn down. The local duck hatch looks way better than last year and everything looks good coming out of Canada for the Pacific Flyway.

Open dates for Eagle Lakes Alberta:
Ryan still has room for a small group on September 19th-21st and September 30th- October 1st for a large party. He is booked up on all other dates for this year. Thank you for supporting him in his venture up North.

Doves-Fishing-Early Goose:
We are all booked up for the opening couple of days but the first weekend we still have lots of availability. The dove shooting stays hot all through the month of September. We also have great combo dove/fishing trips that are a blast. The bass and walleye fishing has been extraordinary. Early Goose is September 10th and 11th with a 5 goose limit. Right now there are a ton of local honkers using the fields and I hope that they stay right where they are at because it will be fabulous.

Drive direct goose hunters:
We have picked up several new farms that will be dynamite. We have some great looking property in Moses Lake as well as some new stuff near the lodge. We will be offering several cycles with some incredible specials going on. Follow the web page or call into the office for details. The goose shooting just keeps getting better and better every year!

2017/2018 scheduling:
Our hunting and lodging books are already put together for next season. We are taking reservations for the 2017-2018 season. For those of you who want to book early all we need is a credit card to hold your reservation and a signed confirmation. We won’t charge your card until April 1st, 2017 unless you want to pay earlier.

We will have all the same staff back and a few new faces as well. We are all looking forward to seeing you and taking care of all your hunting needs.

Happy Hunting!
Mike Bernsen, and the Eagle Lakes Team.
