There are 4 different sub species of Canada geese in Western Region of Manitoba and they all behave completely differently. “”Tip of the day”” If you target Canada goose sub species individually…

How to decoy “slipping” Sandhill Cranes

For years the Birdtail Waterfowl guides have been hunting Sandhill Cranes with pretty darn good success but always knowing that we should further investigate Crane Land.. It’s an area that we hunted waterfowl in 20 years ago and was a good area to hunt but with the light soil and other factors the crop consistency…

Manitoba Waterfowl Hunting

Not the greatest photo taken but it pretty much sums up our 2014 season.. Without a doubt submerged and floating aquatics ruled 3/4 of our duck hunting.

When waterfowl make the transition

Outfitting waterfowl in Manitoba is about being able to adapt to rapid weather changes and its affects on waterfowl. As hunters we tend to be creatures of habit which can bring success, and also can also be to our demise. For example you found the block buster field the night before, then nearly get skunked…
