The Ducks

Do we have the best duck hunting in Canada? This is a common question that really isn’t ours to answer, but similar accolades are often voiced by veteran waterfowlers who visit Birdtail Waterfowl every season. Plain and simple, our Manitoba duck hunting areas are renowned throughout the North American flyways. We are located within Manitoba’s famous Prairie Pothole Region, offering everything needed to create and sustain a duck hunting dreamland. Our croplands, potholes and marshes consistently thrive with a variety of sought after duck species from early September to early November. Combine those essential features with a team of “old hand” waterfowl hunting guides who have a serious knack for finding those mind-blowing flights, and you have the best of all worlds. Our duck hunting opportunities are nothing less than extraordinary.
