Hi Paul.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to sincerely thank you for the singularly best waterfowl hunt I have ever experienced in my 45 years of hunting. My sons and I were absolutely amazed at the numbers of ducks and geese we encountered on our hunts. It is clear that your guides spend many hours and travel hundreds of miles daily to ensure our hunts are bountiful. The results speak for themselves: limits of ducks and geese are easily attainable.

And to heighten the quality of the overall experience, the brand new lodging is simply first class. Every small detail is attended to, and complete client satisfaction clearly is your goal. The cabins are clean, open, spacious, and stocked with fine amenities. Your entire operation is clearly unmatched with regards to the exceptional scheduling, planning and organization that goes into bringing these phenomenal duck and goose hunts to fruition.

I have never encountered an outfitter who delivered far more than was anticipated. Most importantly, you made my boys and me feel very special as hunter clients, and went out of your way that all our needs were met. We look forward with great anticipation to another fine hunt with you and your guides. Birdtail undoubtedly has set a standard of waterfowl hunting excellence and client service that should be recognized as the hallmark for customer service in the outfitting industry with regards to waterfowl hunting experiences. Thank you so much for your outstanding service and friendship. We look forward to what hopefully will become a yearly tradition.

All the best.

“I have hunted with Paul Conchatre for several years and can confidently say he is a ‘Damn Fine’ waterfowler and friend. I have had the pleasure of going out in Western Manitoba to Birdtail Waterfowl to join Paul and his crew. I have consistently been very impressed with their hunting, scouting and planning skills. They really know how to put you where the birds are. Paul always goes the extra mile.”

“We enjoyed our first hunt with Birdtail Waterfowl so much so that the following year we booked again taking along some of our best clients. The guiding was excellent, the weather balmy and the birds plentiful. You haven’t hunted waterfowl until you’ve hunted the Canadian prairie pot hole region with an expert guide.”

“Late last October, my friend and I joined Paul at Birdtail Waterfowl. Without a doubt it was one of the finest hunts I’ve enjoyed over 60 years of hunting waterfowl. Paul was a stickler for detail and did everything in his power to find us the birds and put us under them. Sometimes the hunt was too good, lasting only 20 minutes. The food and accommodations were great and we were welcomed as if we were long time customers. I would highly recommend your operation to anyone looking for the trip of a lifetime.”

“I just wanted to send you a little note to say “Thanks” for another successful trip to Birdtail Waterfowl. As always, the trip was fun, the food was great, and the hunting was AWESOME!!

For the last several years, we’ve had the opportunity to hunt with Birdtail Waterfowl and the hunting has always been excellent.

Birdtail Waterfowl is WORLD CLASS!!! The Ducks, Canada Geese and Snows/Blues were plentiful and eager to decoy…and we were eager, to let them do just that!!!! Your guides were totally professional and just as obsessed with waterfowl as we were! Seldom have I seen guides work that hard for their clients…it shows they TRULY love the sport!

I could go on and on about the Quality of your operation, but, I’ll cut this short.

I would Absolutely Recommend Birdtail Waterfowl to ANYONE who is looking for a great trip to Canada for Waterfowl!! I’ve Never been disappointed, and I’m 100 percent sure they won’t be either.

Looking forward to this season!”

Paul. My hunting trip with Birdtail last fall was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone who values high-quality prairie duck and goose hunting. I was overwhelmed by the abundance and variety of the birds in the areas we went to, and would admit I have never seen so many mallards. The guides were exceptional…in fact, every facet of the experience was exemplary.

I tend to enjoy variety and there was no lack of that. Excellent food…..great lodgings. As a former professional waterfowl specialist, I was particularly interested in the variety in eco-types in the areas we visited. We had opportunities to encounter not only dabblers but also divers and the diversity was a bonus.

Paul and his staff leave no stone unturned to make the experience as enjoyable and
rewarding as possible.

I had the pleasure of hunting with Birdtail Waterfowl in the fall of 2013. Now this is the way bird hunting should always be! Myself and two associates made the short drive up from Winnipeg and found ourselves in the wonderful pothole region of Manitoba. Lived here all our lives and did not know this jewel existed. The accommodations, private cabins with en suite where extremely comfortable and very clean.  The home cooked meals were wonderful and the chef, well she was a special lady!


I was extremely impressed with how Birdtail arranges the guides into two groups, morning guides and afternoon guides. While you are enjoying a successful shoot, guides are out scouting your next location to ensure your experience is going to be a success. The A400 Beretta Shotguns supplied, exemplify the quality of this hunting  operation.


Once you hunt with Birdtail Waterfowl, be prepared to return.
