Bounty is an unincorporated hamlet in Fertile Valley No. 285 Saskatchewan, Canada. The population was 18 at the 1996 Census. The hamlet is located on Range road 104 and Township road 300, about 21 km (9 mi) west of Outlook.

Population

Bounty, like so many other communities throughout Saskatchewan, has struggled to maintain a sturdy population causing it to become a semi ghost town.

Prior to November 25, 1997, Bounty was a village, but it was restructured as a hamlet on that date. [cite web

History

Bounty was once a small village of 200 residents, with nineteen businesses, including three grain elevators, two banks, a three-story 24-room hotel, and a newspaper called the Fertile Valley Echo. Around 1911, Bounty had a professional baseball team that played other towns in the area. Today, Bounty sits lonely on the prairie skyline, for all that remains is a few scattered buildings, a community hall, and a cemetery.
