Brian Barton, a Regional Field Supervisor for Manitoba Conservation says these are number one on the poaching list. He says there are certain seasons to hunt certain animals. Most of the season for big game hunting run into the fall and some of them run into December with moose season, black bear season open in the spring and then stops during the summer and then opens up again in the fall. Barton adds fishing’s on here until the end of this month and will then be closed until the 18th of May and then open back up after the spawning should be done and then fishing will be open for the summer.
Manitoba Conservation travels to boat launches and hunting camps to better educate hunters and fishers on illegal hunting. For more information on illegal hunting or to report poaching activity call 1-800-782-0076.
