Located in the South Interlake region, birds are plentiful in September through the entire month of October. The zone you will be hunting is known as a popular staging area for both geese and ducks. The heavy agriculture combined with plenty of water make it favourable for the fowl to stay here until freeze-up. We hunt mostly cereal crops, corn and bean fields over large spreads of full body “Big Foot” decoys, “Final Approach” shells and lay-out blinds. You also have the option of getting wet in either Libau or Netley marshes, located at the south basin of Lake Winnipeg (marsh hunts extra). The season opens on September 1st for Canadian residents and September 24th for American residents. We only take on a few groups of waterfowlers per fall, so please call for availability.
