MWF Events
  • Hello Future Duck and Deer Hunters!

    MWF wants to teach you how to Waterfowl and Deer Hunt! Join us this fall on a Mentored Hunt Opportunities! Mentored Hunt Flyer 2015

    Please keep in mind that there is limited space and that we can only take 10-12 participants (depending on available mentors). We will be accepting the first 10-12 registration forms with payments on a first come, first serve basis.

    These mentored hunt opportunities are the best opportunities to learn all the basics of waterfowl and deer hunting from who MWF believes are the best mentors in Manitoba! No shotgunning or muzzleloading experience is necessary! You must however have your Manitoba Hunters Safety Course and purchase the required licenses/tags. There are many youth programs available as well, so if you’ve got a young one who doesn’t have anyone to teach them- this is the perfect opportunity! Sign them up!

    If you have any questions regarding these events, please don’t hesitate to call our office.
    FYI…there are more opportunities (including FREE opportunities) coming up this fall to try shotgunning, or enhance your already amazing shotgunning skills at the St. Hubertus shoot on September 20th or at Provincial Hunting Day, which will be at Winnipeg Trap and Skeet this September 26th- the poster will be coming soon!!

    Hope to see you this fall!

  • Workshops for women worthwhile

    Shel Zolkewich from the Winnipeg Free Press covers some Q&A and a little bit of history about this amazing event!

    Come the end of May, women will be drawing bows, filleting fish and backing up trailers as the 21st annual Manitoba Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) weekend gets underway.

    BOW was launched in Wisconsin in 1991 by Christine Thomas, an associate dean and professor of resource management at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point College of Natural Resources.

    After doing some research, Thomas discovered many women prefer to learn outdoors skills in a non-competitive atmosphere, taught by other women. Read More…

  • MANITOBA GOVERNMENT INTRODUCES STIFF PENALTIES FOR ILLEGAL HUNTING

    August 31, 2015

    Offenders Will Pay to Offset Loss
    Of Important Natural Resources: Minister Nevakshonoff
    Anyone convicted of illegally killing a wild animal or fish will now face stiffer penalties as the Fisheries and Wildlife Amendment Act takes effect today, Conservation and Water Stewardship Minister Tom Nevakshonoff announced today.
    “We need to recognize there is a significant cost when an animal is taken illegally and it’s important the person responsible pays the price,” said Minister Nevakshonoff. “This new law will not bring back wildlife harvested illegally but restitution will support programs that work to ensure sustainable wildlife populations remain in our province for generations to come.”
    The new act sets out a series of penalties or restitution amounts for anyone convicted of taking wildlife illegally. Those penalties are in addition to the current fines imposed through the court process and include:

    • $1,500 to $3,000 for white-tailed deer;
    • $2,500 to $10,000 for elk and moose;
    • $2,000 to $4,000 for black bear;
    • $42 to $126 for fish such as walleye, northern pike, goldeye and channel catfish (high values for master angler size); and
    • $252 for a lake sturgeon (protected species). Read More…

  • Faces of Freedom – Healing with fellow Veterans over a Spread of Decoys and Fresh Duck Brekwiches

    By Darrell Rostek

    Adam, Steve and I served together in Afghanistan during “Taskforce 1-08” with the Second battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (2 PPCLI). We were all wounded in combat. While traveling in a LAV (Light Armoured Vehicle), Steve and I were struck by an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). I suffered a traumatic brain injury. This was Steve’s third encounter with an IED. About a month later Adam lost his leg when his LAV was hit by rocket during an ambush. It didn’t take me long to realize that it would take extensive time to heal and some things would never be the same for the three of us.

  • Ode to Cecil the Lion

    Ode to Cecil the Lion-Successful lion conservation requires reason, not emotion.

    In the mid-90s, I spent the better part of a year backpacking around Africa on a quest to see as many wildlife Parks as I possibly could. As a youngster, I religiously watched a Sunday afternoon show on CTV that profiled African wildlife, so it was my life-long dream to see lions, elephants and zebras up close and personal.

    My “walkabout” in Africa was all at once a fantastic life-changing positive experience, and at the same time, a sobering slap in the face in regards to the immense challenges facing the exotic wildlife of the African continent. But when it comes to issues facing African wildlife, hunting is not one of them.

    Poaching certainly is though. Cecil, the now famous, regal old Lion King appears to have been poached by the increasingly vilified and infamous dentist from Minneapolis, Walter Palmer. But while well-meaning mobs sharpen their pitch forks, we do need to remember the man deserves due process so let’s keep the tar warm until he has his day in court.

    On the other hand, if Mr. Palmer is found guilty, he should be held accountable. Cecil, and all wildlife deserve due process too.
