The head of Tourism Saskatchewan is urging hunting and fishing camps to deliver on what they promise to clients.


CEO Lynda Haverstock says this point was hammered home during a recent encounter she had at the Saskatoon airport with out-of-province hunters who had just wrapped up a trip to Saskatchewan.


According to Haverstock, they described a miserable experience and vowed they would never come back.


She says there’s nothing outfitters can do about the impact the rising loonie is having on their operations — but ensuring clients have a great experience is achievable.


Haverstock says outfitters need to be very specific when they advertise their camps.
