Manitoba’s new Master Hunter Award Program is online and taking submissions for recognition awards during the 2016 fall hunting seasons!
The Master Hunter Award Program celebrates the experience of hunting, while recognizing and rewarding successful hunts throughout one’s lifetime of hunting in Manitoba. All hunters harvesting animals in Manitoba, including Manitobans, Canadians from other provinces, or international hunters are eligible to apply for awards at various levels and categories.
Unlike other hunting award programs, the Manitoba Master Hunter Program is not based on a size or scoring basis. There are 6 primary awards and 5 specialist awards available within the Master Hunter Award Program. Hunters must harvest specific species to qualify for each award category.
For those new to hunting, a unique certificate will be awarded to any First Time Hunter who harvest’s their first qualifying species in Manitoba.
Qualifying species applications must be submitted online via the website. There are no timelines associated with achieving Master Hunter Awards. However, awards will not be given for species harvested prior to the 2016 fall hunting seasons, and submissions must be received within one year of the harvest to be eligible.
For information on qualifying species, award categories, photo submission guidelines and rules and regulations, please visit the Master Hunter website.
