Manitoba Canada Duck and Goose Hunting

Imanitobacanadagooseandduckhuntingincanada_2415_500x375For a decade, GetDucks.com represented Mitchitoba Outfitting as our best Canada waterfowl hunt. Not because we said so, but because our many returned clients loved it and said so with a nearly 100% extreme satisfaction rates.  Unbelievably high repeat client rates are in no small part due to Mitchitoba Outfitting continuously raising the bar with innovative hunt offerings, always-new equipment, premium lodging, gourmet meals.  Mitchitoba Outfitting’s guided Canada duck and goose hunting takes place in Manitoba on over 50,000 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.  After 28-plus years waterfowl guiding, Kris Wujcik possesses the skills, experience and determination to make it happen, even when the weather or waterfowl seem adverse to productive hunting.

Hunting fields are always less than 30 minutes and usually only 5-15 minutes from camp. A typical morning Manitoba Canada waterfowl hunt will unfold with guests situated perfectly on the well-scouted “X”, as flocks of hungry ducks, and later geese, swarm into the grain field seeking to join the finest full body decoys in the industry.  Your guide will work the birds in manitoba canada goose hunt_9772close and call the shots, when they’re paddles down right in front of your face.  When conditions are right, some of the most action-packed shoots of the year include setting up for snows – over a mixed spread of full-body snows, Canadas and mallards, complete with rotaries and e-callers.

Full limits of honkers and ducks are not uncommon during morning hunts. If you don’t shoot a generous 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. Seasonally, divers are hunted on nearby lakes, where flocks of canvasbacks, redheads and blue-bills rocket into the blocks.  And nowhere else in Canada have we experienced sure-nuff timber shoots for mallards!

manitoba canada goose hunt_9119Manitoba Canada goose and duck hunting entails generous waterfowl limits. Daily limits are as follows: Snows & Blues 50 per day; Canada geese 5 per day, 15 in possession; ducks 8 per day, 24 in possession, with restrictions on canvasbacks and redheads.  Timing of 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.  During the first week of May, Mitchitoba Outfitting also offers some of the very best decoying snow goose action to be had, but these trips usually book many months in advance. Your well-trained retriever is welcomed to fetch your group’s bag, or Kris will put his to work.

Guests are lodged in a beautifully appointed cabin overlooking a picturesque lake. Large groups of guests may room double-occupancy, or may use newly constructed cabins just a few feet from the main cabin to ensure single-occupancy sleeping arrangements. Not only are Nancy’s and Mary Lou’s made-from-scratch gourmet meals some of the very best we’ve eaten anywhere in Canada – think stuffed pork chops, demi-glazed spare ribs, white chili, fresh-baked breads, muffins and sweet rolls, home-made soups and diet-busting desserts – but we’ve sent so many southern guests over the years that they make sweet iced tea as perfectly as any southern belle – and there’s always Tony Chachere’s and Louisiana hot sauce on-hand.

Mitchitoba Outfitting’s premium INCLUSIVE Manitoba waterfowl hunting package includes everything but getting there and tips – show up with your favorite shotgun and post-hunt libations and you’re good to go!  Other options are a No Meals plan (includes lodging and fully-guided hunts) and a new do-it-yourself program that includes lodging, excellent decoys and equipment, private property access and even a scout.

About the Area – Manitoba Canada Waterfowl Hunts

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