“So many productive potholes, so little time.” This is a quote that accurately explains our Manitoba pothole duck hunting opportunities, but it also speaks to the considerable time it takes to find that favorable pothole hunt. It all comes down to being in the right place at the right time, covering thousands of acres in a very short period, and a little bit of luck. Pothole hunting opportunities are usually revealed when ducks are spotted heading to or from their daytime water or loafing sites. Our duck hunting guides always have their heads on a swivel, and they always seek to observe those uncountable flights of dabblers dumping into a narrow, one-acre slough with reckless abandon. When the right scenario is presented, this can be a first or last light hunt with few comparisons. It’s also an experience that will have you either wading in cover or posting in a lay out boat. But this type of hunt also comes with a fair share of uncertainty. We will always do our best to tailor a pothole hunt with a semi-patterned flight, but with literally thousands of potholes at a duck’s discretion, you just never know. Pothole duck hunts are always a possibility from mid September to early November.
