The destruction of crops by waterfowl continues to be a concern for Manitoba producers. In 2020, a total of 122 claims for waterfowl damage were filed with Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC). MASC paid over $385,000 in compensation for these waterfowl claims.
In August 2021, KAP along with the Manitoba Wildlife Federation sent a joint letter to the Canadian Wildlife Service supporting an extension to the spring hunting season.
Update – January 2022
The Canadian Wildlife Service announced “Proposals to Amend Canadian Migratory Birds Regulations” an extension to the spring hunting season for overabundant temperate-breeding Canada Geese in Southern Manitoba.
