The typical morning Manitoba Canada duck hunt will unfold with you situated perfectly, as flocks of hungry ducks and geese swarm into the grain field seeking to join the finest full body decoys in the industry.

Good equipment, good guiding and scouting, and good land to hunt makes it a favorite destination for a no-frills Canada waterfowl hunt where the bottom line is hunting success. Ducks were mostly mallards and pintails, but we did kill several gadwalls, wigeon, a couple of ringnecks. Looking forward to going back. ~Pat Pitt
About the Area - Manitoba Canada Duck Hunting
The name Manitoba comes from the Cree words "Manitou bou," which mean "the narrows of the Great Spirit." Manitoba is a huge province with comparably few residents but the people that do live there are renowned for their friendly, hospitable natures and diversity. Located in the heart of Canada, Manitoba is easternmost prairie province in Canada, it covers about a quarter-million acres and 1.1 million residents.
Renowned for dramatic landscapes, cultural tradition with warm and friendly people, Manitoba is recognized as the land of 100,000 lakes, a legacy of enormous Lake Agassiz, which covered much of the province after the glacial retreat. Nearly 20 percent of its agriculture is dedicated to wheat production; thousands of acres of harvested or swathed grains sustain resident and migratory waterfowl.
Manitoba is one of the sunniest provinces in Canada. Two-thirds of Canada's 500-plus species of birds come here, drawn here by the waters. Manitoba is a premier wildlife-watching destination with among the highest densities of moose, elk and black bear. The abundance and diversity of waterfowl that migrates through Manitoba during the fall months captivates the hearts of wingshooters during Manitoba Canada duck hunting vacations.
