Hello,

I am doing some passive shooting this year. I am looking for a nice place to hunt geese near Winnipeg, 1-2 hours away give and take. Anyone kind enough to share any hot spots please let me know.

Thanks.

I would worry about the bacteria on the birds fresh out of a lagoon. You handle the birds, then clean them, and then what EAT them I would not.

Rem if your doing pass shooting and want someting close to Winnipeg. Just go to the fireing Line at Grants Lake out in Rosser. Pick your post and wait for the birds. On a good day you can get some good hunting there. Other days it's just bird watching. But that what you get when your pass shooting.

[offtopic:nop6ixny]Don't you have to pay to hunt around there???[/offtopic:nop6ixny]

*Some* landowners ask for a dollar amount per gun to use their field, normally $10 - $15 for locals for are not guiding. But seeing how they have take time out of their day to sign a permission form and track who is what field, I feel it is a small price to pay. I've have only run into this once and a while.

Regardles at the end of the hunt, I will do a nice thank you card with a gift cert. to local resturant for allowing us/me on their field. Much happier to do that and I think it really helps when I go asking for permission the next time!

Tons of birds out there, no one is gonna give you there hot spot, best thing to do is get in your truck and drive, find some birds and start knocking on doors.

The funny thing with those few landowners charging per gun is on a wet year when there crops are laying getting slammed they aren't paying per gun to help them out!
I totally agree with the gift cards, had farmers give our group and no other there acreage for the whole season. There were times were we had up to 3000 acres for the season. End of season spend a day doing pr work and handing out appreciation gifts.

Thanks for all your input guys. I managed to find a place in the RM of Springfield. Going to try it out this long weekend. =)

$10 a day at oak hammock. it was the price that was mandatory when the C.O's managed it. Totally worth it. 20 minutes from home. guarenteed geese ( almost ). And you dont need much. We have maybe 3 dozen decent decoys and get birds landing all the time. finding a good spot with vacancies is difficult but should be getting easier I would imagine.

It's important to get things straight Chad. Wildlife Branch "manages" the wildlife and crown land uses within the managed area. They used to run check stations to disperse hunters and minimize crowding and hunter conflict within the managed hunting area. Officers enforce the laws not "manage" the resource! There has never been a mandatory price to hunt within the managed area either. Land access fees are totally dependent on the landowner. Most don't charge a cent while others charge $5 to $20 per hunter.

As for Grant's Lake, I'm told that its dry! No water = no birds!

Are there any areas that allow for pass shooting in Oak hammock? Or is it straight decoying down there?

One MUST HUNT ON PRIVATE LAND ONLY within the Managed Area. Pass shooting is definitely allowed and possible as long as you have written permission to be on the property and you're not shooting into the waterfowl control zone.

Andre': many have said it, but, I'd like to add to it...your knowledge, insightfulness, levelheadedness, and willingness to share information with our members, is greatly appreciated. I'm sure I'm safe in saying thank you, from all of us here on MHF.

Thanks Riggs! :) And as I've posted on many occasions, I find it extremely important to provide correct information, remove innuendo, call b.s. if it needs to be called as well as plain old sharing of hunting and fishing stories. I've made many, many friends from these outdoor forums. This also brings natural resource crime fighting into the computer and social media age! All part of the public's right to know as I alluded to in the Métis hunting thread!

Only 1 year, 9 months and 19 days left until someone else has to pick up the ball! :)
