Celebrate Provincial Hunting Day on Saturday, Sept. 28
Join MWF on Saturday, Sept. 28 at Oak Hammock Marsh. Lots to see and do – shooting stations, hunting demos, seminars, live music, prize draws, displays, and more! This event was first celebrated in Manitoba in 2009, after the province joined Alberta and 50 states in proclaiming the 4th Saturday in September as Provincial Hunting Day. The day is meant to recognise the role of hunting in wildlife management and conservation, and provide people an opportunity to learn about the heritage and practices of hunting in our region. Watch for details!
