What to Expect on your Waterfowl Hunt in Manitoba

What to Expect on your Waterfowl Hunt in Manitoba

We always plan to show your group the best we have, keeping in mind your preferred hunting style and target birds. However, we won't make promises we can't keep and when dealing with nature nothing is a guarantee. What we strive for is a great experience every day and if the birds or weather are not cooperating with Plan A, we adopt Plan B.

Our hunting goal is primarily focused on an exceptional morning hunt. This is where we put the majority of our effort into making unforgettable trips. Mornings field hunts for geese and ducks are the most common style of hunting with us but in certain cases, we may take to the water for divers or other ducks.

We leave the grain land alone in the afternoons so we don't burn up a field we may want for the morning. A typical afternoon consists of a fun activity such as a water-based duck hunt if necessary, a walleye fishing trip, an upland hunt, joining a guide on a field scouting mission or taking a tour of the area. We also have a skeet thrower if you wish to sharpen your eye on flying targets.

Note: We recommend that you arrive with a 4-wheel drive vehicle for you and your party to follow us to the field.
