Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta are the places to go, although I’m told the grainfields of British Columbia are just as good. I was in Saskatchewan for a brief hunt last week, my seventh trip to the prairies. Temperatures ran into the 70s both days, and the wind didn’t blow much. You might as well stay home on a day like that in the US. In Canada, you’ll shoot a bird here, a couple there and it seems like a slow day until quitting time comes and you realize you’ve got a big pile of ducks and geese. When it’s good in Canada, it’s ridiculous. I’ve been on a hunt where a flock of 1,000 mallards tried to land in the decoys, and on others where parties of seven or eight shot limits in an hour.
