Confusion over 2015 fall bear dates

Please note the 2015 fall bear season will begin on Aug. 24, 2015.

In the past three Manitoba hunting guides, the opening date for fall bear 2015 has been advertised as Aug. 24, 2015.

But the 2015 hunting guide lists the opening date as Aug. 31, 2015.

The government has acknowledged this as an error and will officially regulate the season as opening on Aug. 24. This will be the opening date not just for outfitted clients, but for resident hunters as well.

Baiting restrictions are still 2 weeks before the season opens. Please note the wolf season does not begin until Aug. 31, and that date has not changed from what was previously advertised, and will not change regardless of the bear season start date.
