Multi Species Waterfowl

Waterfowl hunting in Manitoba’s prairie potholes is never the same old, same old. We are often surprised by some of the amazing opportunities we stumble upon, including various mixed bag shoots. Our multi species hunting opportunities are often overlooked, only because our prominent field hunts commonly steal the show. Posting on marsh islands, defined points, big water bays and unique fly way funnels are great options for experiencing an exhilarating multi species waterfowl encounter. These unassuming locations can often reveal mixed flights of wood ducks, teal, shovelers, red heads, canvasbacks, gadwall and various types of geese. You could expect to harvest over ten different migratory species during prime-time flights. Whether it’s over floating decoys or a laid-back pass shoot, our multi species options offer a tonne of flexibility and excitement.
