Travel Insurance

In case of unforeseen circumstances, we strongly suggest the purchase of travel or trip interruption/cancellation insurance. Some companies require this coverage to be bound within 14 days of your first deposit, so please confirm with your insurer as to their requirements for this type of insurance. Travel insurance is available through various vendors and is your responsibility.


We recommend that you fly into Grand Praire, Alberta (Airport Code CYQU).

Northern Air offers many daily flights from Calgary and Edmonton to Peace River.


Peace River Waterfowl understands the potential inconveniences that can come when traveling with personal firearms. Extra baggage charges, lost luggage and inconsistencies in paperwork can add to unnecessary stress. This is why we offer a shotgun rental option. It’s an affordable solution with plenty of value. Shotguns can be rented for $60.00 per day.

Importing Your Personal Shotgun

If you chose to travel with your firearm, just input your personal and firearm information to the RCMP 5589/909 Gun Declaration form, which you need to print three times. Do not sign the copies until you’re in front of a Canada Customs Agent. You are declaring your firearm, so your signature will need to be witnessed by a Canadian Customs Officer.

What To Wear

Light-colored camo outerwear (including hats) is what you will want to wear. Dark colors tend to stick out in our natural cover. Waterproof outerwear, insulating layers, wicking layers, gloves, and warm rubber boots are key items in your waterfowl kit. Please see the recommended items below.

  • Camo hat and face mask.

  • Waterproof/Gore-Tex camo outerwear (pants/bibs and jacket shell).

  • An insulating vest or light jacket underlayer. Primaloft or down works exceptionally well.

  • Moisture-wicking base layers. Short and long sleeves.

  • Warm, comfortable rubber boots (Muck and LaCrosse are great choices).

  • Warm gloves or shooting gloves.

Gearing Up

Purchasing shotgun shells can be daunting. So many choices! Our guide’s top recommendation is a 3-inch shell with a number 2 shot. Why? More pellets, solid pattern, they’re not prone to jamming and they are way easier on the shoulder. They also work well for ducks and geese. But a 3-inch shell with BB shot can be a good alternative for late-season geese, especially giant Canada’s. 3 ½ inch shells are culprits of jamming guns and inconsistent patterns. Keep it simple, take your time, pick a bird, lead your bird, and make the shot count.

*Note: Shotgun shells can be purchased at local sporting goods stores upon your arrival in Alberta. 

Blind Bag And Contents

Most of us would be lost without our blind bags. All things important can and should be sealed within. They are a great item to organize and store gear for each hunt. All guides have them, so should you. Please see the recommendations below.

  • A medium to large, semi-waterproof blind bag will do the trick. Make sure there is enough pockets and storage to house your important gear.

  • A good headlamp with extra batteries

  • Shooting glasses or sun glasses

  • Duck and goose calls (we encourage guests to bring their calls).

  • Bird lanyard or carrying strap

  • 2 to 3 boxes of shotgun shells

  • Gun oil

  • Ear plugs/protection

  • Hunting licenses

  • Personal identification

  • Gun declaration form

  • Hunter Safety/Education card

  • Camera

  • Personal items
