The Sandhill crane is one species that Birdtail Waterfowl guests and guides truly cherish. Hunting Sandhill cranes in Manitoba is easily the most unique waterfowl hunting experience available, and it just might be the most rewarding opportunity we offer. Their oversized stature and vocal engagement are literally awe-inspiring, which makes every hunt nothing short of dynamic. What really puts Sandhill crane hunting into a league of its own is their mysterious ability to spot something out of the ordinary, their unpredictable flight paths, their captivating numbers, and their phenomenal table fare! It’s like hunting “the big game of birds”, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Their pursuit is extremely challenging and requires the very best in field decoys, blinds, and the most rigorous scouting efforts. But when all the stars align… the experience is purely remarkable, and it’s one that we consistently chase from early September to mid October.
