Canada—and Manitoba in particular—is a world-class hunting destination. Keep reading to find out why we think this is where you should book your next hunting trip!  Canada’s expansive, and much of our land mass is filled with rugged, natural wilderness that is largely untouched and uninhabited.

It’s also the world’s second largest country, so narrowing ..read more

Many years ago, more than I care to admit, I spent a week at a fishing and hunting camp in northern Quebec.

But mostly, I think it’s because it elicited deep feelings in me of being connected to nature, and to each other. Particularly during the recent pandemic, I found my ..read more
