Ice Fishing Season Underway
The fields are covered with snow and the lakes are covered with 2 feet of ice. The days are cold but with our ice shacks, augers and short rods, we find ways and reasons to stay warm. For those of you are hearty enough to venture out on the ice in search of pike, walleye, trout, and perch, we salute your efforts. Ice fishing is 1 part adventure, 1 part gear, and 2 parts rum, at least when it’s done right! Check out our ice fishing pages including pictures, tips, and more.
With winter in season across the prairies, the sleds are running. Poor snow conditions in many ares are keeping the sleds to drifted in ditches and frozen bodies of water. Whether you are out for a run across the lake, across the field, or on the trails for a poker rally, our outdoor playground is waiting for the rev of the engines and the push of the tracks.
The End of Hunting Season
Hunting Season is over across the prairies, except for the stories of the recent hunt. The big buck at 150 yards gradually becomes 300 yards, on the run. The single mallard at 25 yards, feet down, becomes an 80 yard over the shoulder triple. We all have learned how to bend the truth a little in our hunting stories, often with a touch of rum to liven the atmosphere over the holidays as we gather with our hunting buddies again. It’s a great time to share your stories. Consider telling your tale in the The Campfire or are you looking to book your next hunting trip with an outfitter in Alberta, Manitoba, or Saskatchewan? We have the hunting links to help you out.

A Look Ahead to Camping Season
Are you already looking ahead to another great camping season? We have some great resources for helping you find that ideal campground spot. Our Campground pages include links to Provincial Parks in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. As most campers are still thinking about their favorite winter activities, many are already thinking ahead to the day when they can pull out the tents, sleeping bags, and prep the trailers for the first trip of the year. Campgrounds won’t open up for a few more months but the best time is now to begin thinking about the first camping trip. Wondering which campground suits you best? Check out the provincial park ratings in the links just below for each province or go straight our listings of Provincial Parks and Campgrounds. Will you go back to old favorites this year or try out a new spot?

MB Camping comments:
Falcon lake campground is becoming really run down. The washroom & shower facilities are disgusting. The toilets were continuously plugged, doors falling off the stalls, crumbling infrastructure and filthy. There appears to be little supervision or standards for grounds keepers and cleaners. They drive around in golf carts all day playing games on their phones. We witnessed them drive right over garbage! They told us all they do is change toilet paper. Sites are not cleaned when vacated; the beach is not raked and garbages are overflowing. There appears to be an adequate amount of staff but they do nothing. Too bad as it is a nice spot.

In Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba we have over 200,000 lakes and hundreds of rivers, featuring some of the finest fresh water game fishing possible. The wild life is plentiful and world renowned for trophy quality hunting and fishing. Many hunting and fishing world records have come from this area including the Hanson Buck and the Broder Buck. We have wild mountain streams in Alberta featuring Brown trout and Rainbow trout that will rip the backing out of your reel. Bring your heavy line and get ready to set the hook for Northern Pike that will spin your boat around. The flocks of Canada Geese and Snow Geese will fill the sky in numbers only counted in hundreds of thousands. The southern prairies feature excellent pheasant hunting along the creek beds and abundant numbers of "Prairie Chicken" (sharp-tail grouse) and "Huns" (Hungarian Partridge). With a good dog and a quick 12 gauge you can get your limit. Trophy walleye can be pulled from lakes year round and the ice fishing is an unbelievable adventure. Imagine pulling a 30 inch walleye or a 48 inch pike through 3 feet of ice. If bear hunting is your sport, the forest are well stocked with the wary creatures.
If you have the patience, you have a great chance to pick a black bear in one of the many color phases ranging from pure black, to chocolate brown, to cinnamon and even the rare blonde bear. World record whitetail, elk, moose and mule deer are wandering the forests and plains where the big game are plentiful and big bodied.
