Manitoba Canada Duck Hunts

Imanitobacanadagooseandduckhuntingincanada _2415This Manitoba duck hunt takes place on over 30,000 exclusive acres of prime agricultural land and day-roost waters. Fields are scouted daily to ensure maximum shooting opportunity at low-pressured birds. Hunt from the comfortable confines of a layout blind which keep you out of the wind, dry, concealed, or from natural cover along local sloughs.  With 20 years waterfowl guiding experience under his belt, this outfitter makes it happen when the weather or ducks are adverse to productive duck hunting.

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.  Your guide will work the birds in close and call the shots, when they’re paddles down right in front of your face!  Your well-trained retriever is welcomed to retrieve your party’s birds, or we’ll put ours to work.

Full limits of honkers and ducks are not uncommon during morning hunts. If you don’t shoot your liberal limit of 8 ducks in the morning, or simply choose not to because the goose action is fast and furious, a hot grain field or small pothole will provide for a relaxing afternoon hunt of decoying mallards and pintail. Scared you’ll get tired of shooting? Don’t worry – Manitoba’s best trophy trout fishery is located nearby, and September-October are prime time.

Manitoba has liberal waterfowl limits. Daily limits are as follows: Snows & Blues 20 per day, 80 in possession; Canada geese 5 per day, 15 in possession; ducks 8 per day, 16 in possession, with restrictions on canvasbacks and redheads.  Timing of our fall hunts is usually September 25 through October 25.  During the first 2 weeks, goose hunting closes at noon to help keep the birds in the area and to let the birds pack on the pounds needed for their eventual migration south. All day hunting begins around October 9th.

Standard hunts are typically 3 FULL days.  Fly into Winnipeg, rent a car and drive about 2.5 hours to camp.  Hunting licenses are purchased after arrival to this affordably-priced Canada duck hunt, that for the past 2 seasons has been 100% repeat client rate.  Ammo is included.

Field Report

-patimg_3070.jpgI’ve heard this Manitoba Canada duck hunt described as a blue collar hunt, but aside from the very reasonable cost it’s far from that.  You get alot for what you pay. Lots of geese and ducks, with several different opportunities of hunting them.  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





eimg_3658.jpgI was hoping for a good goose hunt.  We had a great goose shoot instead.  The first day was awesome.  With only 3 hunters, we shot 60 snow geese, 9 Canadas and 18 ducks. In 30 plus years of duck hunting I have never seen anything like it. All I could think was that this was only day one! The last day ended with mallard limits including one band and a bonus honker. ~Jeff Stallings

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.

swathed manitoba.jpgRenowned 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. Tired shoulders, big smiles in Manitoba.


Bird Processing – Manitoba Canada Duck Hunt

Bird Cleaning is NOT included in the cost of the “no meals plan” Manitoba Canada Duck Hunt package. Bird processing fees are $4 per duck or goose.

Birds may be breasted or picked. We strongly suggest bringing ice chests large enough to ensure proper care of birds.  Ice chests may be purchased in Winnipeg following your arrival.

USFWS statutes regarding transportation of migratory game birds are carefully followed:

  • All sport-taken migratory birds imported into the US via Canada must have 1 fully feathered wing attached to the carcass.  No other types or forms of migratory birds will be allowed into the US, no sausage or processed meat.
  • All imports into the US of sport-taken migratory birds may only be imported by the person who hunted them. A hunter cannot give the birds to another person to take into the US on their behalf.
  • Birds, geese, or cranes intended for taxidermy can only be imported into the US when accompanied by a US migratory bird import/export permit.
  • All illegal birds and/or meat is subject to seizure and fines.

6 great days of Manitoba mallard and honker hunting

gene_taylor_200x250“Well, Ramsey, more great duck hunting on a different continent than last time.  We had 6 great days of Manitoba mallard and honker hunting. I enjoyed every part of it.  It certainly lived up to my expectations.

I’ve been blessed to hunt many of the prime waterfowling hotspots and this is definitely one of them.   The guide is a true master of decoying birds, an excellent caller and hunter.  I’ll be back next season to waterfowl hunt in Canada again.

Your attention to detail made this hunt trouble free and smooth, from start to finish.  Ramsey Russell’s did it again!”
