If you purchased a Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit in 2018, you may find in the mail a request to participate in the Harvest Questionnaire Survey. Hunters are encouraged to respond, even if you did not hunt this year, to questions about their migratory game bird hunting experience during the 2018-2019 season.
The Harvest Questionnaire Survey is sent in the fall to approximately 45,000 randomly chosen hunters. It is used mainly to estimate the harvest of migratory game birds and hunting activity in Canada. A smaller group of hunters participate in the Species Composition Survey (or Wing and Tail Survey). Data from this survey are used, in combination with Harvest Questionnaire Survey data, to estimate the numbers that are hunted of each species of waterfowl and other game bird species, as well as the age and sex composition of the harvest.

Winnipeg, Manitoba, November 29, 2018 – A new documentary series shares rare and unusual encounters with one of Canada’s most iconic animals while raising grave concerns about their future.
Doc Moose introduces viewers to Dr. Vince Crichton, internationally recognized expert on moose biology and management. During his over 40-year career at Manitoba’s Wildlife and Ecosystem Protection Branch, and despite his best efforts, Dr. Crichton witnessed the species’ dramatic decline.
“We had a population of around 30,000 to 35,000 moose in 1982 when we seriously started our conservation efforts,” says the internationally recognized expert on moose biology and management. “Our goal was to grow that, but now province-wide we have less than 15,000 animals. “
Doc Moose is the latest offering from Electric Monk Media, an independent media company in Winnipeg’s Exchange District whose video and virtual reality portfolio include strong messages on reconnecting with the natural world. The series is on available free, on-demand to all Bell MTS Fibe TV customers and is available on YouTube and Vimeo:
Economic Study on the Lake Winnipeg Fishery Released
A rally was organized on October 23rd at the Manitoba Legislative Building to publicize the release of an economic study on recreational and commercial fishing on Lake Winnipeg. The study, conducted by Probe Research, found recreational and commercial fishing on Lake Winnipeg contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the province within the past two years.
There was $221 million in direct spending by anglers, which added $102 million to Manitoba’s GDP, $44 million in wages, $52 million in taxes and more than 1,500 jobs, the study said.
And the commercial fishing industry on Lake Winnipeg contributed $29 million to the provincial GDP, $20 million in wages and supported 696 jobs, Probe said.

Chronic Wasting Disease is a sister to “mad cow” disease, and is confirmed in twenty-four US States, plus Alberta and Saskatchewan. It transmits through bodily fluids and is especially persistent and infectious in the clay soils, passing through dust, water, plants and trees. Recent research confirmed that macaques monkeys can be infected with CWD, suggesting that hunters should exercise caution and get informed. The MLOA is advocating for quick and convenient CWD testing for hunter-harvested animals in Manitoba, to help keep infected materials from the food and feed chains.
