Incredible Biodiversity

Mallards and Pintails

This really is Manitoban duck hunting at its finest. Our entire outfitting territory offers a supreme combination of water and forage, making it a haven for migrating ducks. We consistently encounter the replenishments of a northerly push, which can often reveal swarms of unschooled dabbling ducks. Come experience the unimaginable—if timing is on your side, you can expect to witness a flight of over 10,000 birds. Book your excursion from mid-September to early November, with prominent numbers of pintails usually in the area until early October.
