There is never a dull moment on our world-class waterfowl hunts. Our hunters limit out each day with ample shooting for everyone.

My first waterfowl hunt with Neil Johnson at Northstar was September 2016 with some buddies that had been going to Northstar for years. They had a last minute drop out. It was so great that I told Neil that I wanted the next slot that came available. Fortunately, the first slot of the year became available and it is now my slot. I have had my group there in 2017 and 2018 and will continue as long as I can. In 2017, Neil told me that he was going to be able to offer hunts in 2018 in Saskatchewan, hunting out of a hotel in Lloydminster.. I booked two hunts in Sask in 2018. The hunts in Sask were fabulous. Double limits every day, and the hotel was super. I have now booked my slot at the lodge in early September and a slot in early October in Sask. I plan to do this for many years to come. I cannot recommend Northstar and Neil Johnson high enough. The shooting, the hospitality, and the organization of the entire program is superb.

I have been waterfowl hunting with Neil Johnson and crew at North Star Outfitters in Alberta, Canada for the past five years. Our group arrives in late October, usually the last group to hunt. You would think by the end of October all the waterfowl would be gone. Wrong! We saw thousands of Mallards and Canadian geese each day we were there. We limited out each and every time we went out. We owe a great deal of thanks to our great guide, Mike, and our wonderful spotter, Blaine. These two men are on top of their game and was always making sure no matter where we were hunting, it was going to be a great hunt. I have never been disappointed with any of the hunts. After a long day, you come back to the lodge and Kathy, our cook/housekeeper always had a hot meal waiting for us. The food is delicious. I think I gain 10 pounds every year I come. The lodge is always clean and well kept. The people that work at North Star Outfitter go out of their way to make you feel at home and all your needs are met. I have hunted for many years, but never have I found an experience like the one we have each and every time we go. You don’t think it can get any better till you go back the next year. If you are looking for a great waterfowl hunt and an experience of a life time, this is the place to call, North Star Outfitters. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
I have hunted waterfowl one time with North Star Outfitting, and we had huge Canada geese practically trying to get in the blind with us. I have also hunted black bear seven different times. He has never failed to produce excellent bears, I have taken one over eight foot, and several over seven foot. He works hard and does everything possible to provide an excellent hunting experience. His accommodations are first class, and there is more great tasting food than you can possibly eat. I have no reservations recommending Neil to anyone.

Thanks for the great experience that you and your staff shared with me and my group last week. I feel that your staff and you made our trip and it was a great experience. I want to say thanks for the great food that Miss Katie produce as well as the kindness and respect that your staff bestowed upon us. I had a great time and I hope you and yours feel the same. Tell Miss Katie that I am still waiting on a wild goose recipe.
North Star Outfitters offered a great combination of world-class goose and duck hunting. Neil and his scouts did a superb job at finding the birds and putting us on 'em.

The hunting was outstanding. We shot limits of ducks and geese every day. Our guide did a very good job. I saw ducks one morning like I have never seen before.

For the past 5 years, North Star Outfitting has exceeded all of our expectations. The hunting, food and accommodations are first class, and we look forward to our sixth season. Many thanks,

I can't wait to get back to the huge fire pit, the game on the big screen and Cathy's awesome bacon wrapped duck. All of the luxuries are great, but the real reason I can't wait to get back are the limits of geese and ducks. Thanks Neil.
I have never been to Canada before, but after my trip with Neil and North Star Outiftting I will never go anywhere else than with Neil. The hunts were unbelievable and the accomodations were better than expected. After returning from the trip and having a show and tell with my friends, they have all begged me to give them your information. I really enjoyed the week of duck/goose hunting and will definately be back very soon to do it again. I have never seen the variety and amount of waterfowl anywhere else! Thanks for all your and your staff's hard work and hope to see you next winter!
I have avidly hunted waterfowl for 47 years and can speak with authority about the sport. Having hunted in Canada 3 other times over the years, the best hunts of my life were provided last year by North Star Outfitters. Every detail was meticulously provided exceeding all expectations and the hunting was second to none. Hats off to Neil, Blaine, and Andrew for a remarkable experience!
