Howdy Hunters!

Welcome to No Fly Zone Waterfowl Outfitters

Owner and operator John Prosak purchased these properties due to their location in the heart of Saskatchewan’s flyway. This province is home to one of the largest duck populations on the continent. Thousands of “honkers” fill the sky with long V-formations; snow geese cover fields like freshly fallen snow, and sandhill cranes fill the air with distinctive rolling cries. With our high bag limits and multiple species of waterfowl, No Fly Zone is in the centre of the migration. There is no other place in Canada to experience hunting like this.

John has been a guide in the hunting industry since 2007 making clients successful with waterfowl, whitetail, bear, wolf, shed horn , and bighorn sheep hunts.

You may have seen him on TV shows such as Driven, Winchester Deadly Passion, The Fowl Life, Feel the Rush, and Avian X, creating memorable and successful hunts with his clients. With his hardworking staff of professionals, No Fly Zone strives to provide their clients with just that; successful, memorable, safe hunts.

During the offseason, John is involved in the hospitality and tourism industry and runs his guest ranch sturgeonriverranch.com located on the west side of Prince Albert National Park. With John’s knowledge and experience in these industries, you’ll come for a waterfowl hunt but leave with an experience.

Bird Cleaning & Transportation Home

This service is included in your waterfowl hunting package however if you want to participate in cleaning the birds, it can be a fairly quick process.

All birds headed back into the states must have a fully feathered wing attached to it for evidence of sex and species. This service can be provided for $10/goose & crane and $5/duck or you can help with this process. Shipping of waterfowl is not allowed by Saskatchewan law, so hunters must accompany the birds back to the US in a cooler. Please bring a cooler or arrange for us the buy you one.

Bird Meat Options

Many of us enjoy eating waterfowl ourselves, as do many landowners and locals, so if you want to leave some behind, or donate them all, that’s fine by us! Whatever we can’t eat goes to the butcher, for sausage, jerky, ground meat, etc.

Nothing goes to waste!

Shotgun Rentals

We strongly recommend that you clean and check your shotgun before you arrive to Canada for your waterfowl hunt to make sure it is working properly. For those who do not want to deal with bringing their own firearms into Canada, we offer shotgun rentals for $50/day. Please book this in advance.

More information about declaring firearms, and how to bring them across the border can be found under Resources.

Ammunition Purchases

Don’t bother hauling ammunition or making a special stop. We can sell you all of the ammunition you need for your hunt with us, and often at a better rate than local retailers.

I've had the opportunity to hunt on many occasions with JP and the staff at NFZ Outfitters. JP is an outstanding guide, amazing on the calls, has a wicked set up and consistently put us on birds. There was never a dull moment with JP, one of the funniest people I know! Looking forward to future hunting opportunities with NFZ in 2021 and making more memories! A must if you're looking for migratory birds and an awesome time!

Great guys to hunt with. They had Jason and Robert from Top Down Decoys up to hunt, and got them on the birds. The lodge is nice and updated and serve great food for breakfast/lunch and dinner. They put the work in on scouting and the guides are on time and great to be around. Thanks to all who work at No Fly Zone Waterfowl Outfitters for all you do to get each hunt organized.
