The area around Duck Lake is excellent for duck, and to some extent geese, because of the number of sloughs and the two rivers that are on either side of Duck Lake. There is also elk and black bear season that hunters from all over the province can relish. Deer populations are high because there are numerous bush clumps and a forest that they can take refuge in. The deer also graze in the meadows and on river banks. The land structure around Duck Lake makes for a spirited chase that is rewarded with satisfaction of besting nature and maybe even shooting a prize buck.
