Hunting for Sandhill Cranes in Manitoba – Manitoba Master Hunter Minute

Manitoba’s “Big Game” of migratory game birds!

The Sandhill crane is a highly distinctive migrant that annually populates the vast wetlands and grain fields throughout Manitoba. Their challenging pursuit, formidable size, and sought after table qualities have afforded them a notable trademark and a dedicated following from the most fanatical waterfowlers. With an uncanny ability to spot something out of the ordinary and an intriguing appearance that reaches 4 feet in height and presents wing spans of 6 feet, the Sandhill offers one of the most intriguing waterfowl experiences in existence.

September 1st marks the opening day of Manitoba’s Sandhill crane season for resident, non-resident and foreign resident hunters. Popular game hunting areas are located within the Northern, Parkland and Western Region.
