    A bit more popular? I wonder if you will be singing the same tune in 20 years when you can't get on land. You think it cant happen? Trust me it can.

    I've been waterfowl hunting for almost 45 years and first went to ND with my grandfather when I was at the age of 12. I once owned a home in ND just for hunting. You couldn't pay me now to go back and hunt that state with all the changes that have happened to it. ( except for the Spring snow season ) If you don't think that this isn't going to happen ALL over You're NUTS!!!! Hunting is becoming a Rich man's sport and that's just the way it goes.

    Couple things, here is Manitoba's definition as per Manitoba Conservation's guidelines.

    B. Outfitter and Facility Classifications

    Facilities and services are classified as follows:

    Outfitter
    means a person who, for gain, remuneration or reward or the hope or expectation of gain, remuneration or reward, provides two or more outfitting services to others in connection with hunting, fishing or ecotourism activities; Outfitting service
    means the provision of
    (a) supplies or equipment for use in connection with hunting, fishing or
    ecotourism activities,
    (b) the services of a guide, or
    (c) accommodation facilities;

    The impact of NR hunters in the Prairie Provinces is most definitely on the minds of those that make the rules and regulations. As you can tell from this thread there has been a growing concern by resident hunters of the effect of NR have had over the past number of years. In the past, I myself have dealt with illegal outfitting and illegal hunting practices from a group of visiting NR hunters.

    As such, it seems change is in the wind. Manitoba Sustainable Development has recently just released an online and paper survey that hunters and anglers can take to voice their concern over a wide number of issues, one of them being NR waterfowl hunters. The question as taken from the survey is below, there is also a section for people to write their comments.

    Question 2:

    Should restrictions be placed on foreign resident waterfowl hunters?

    Background: Foreign resident hunters (non-Canadians) may currently hunt waterfowl for an unlimited number of days, within the established season for a particular area (e.g., southern Manitoba: September 24 to November 30). On average, about 3,500 foreign resident waterfowl hunters come to Manitoba each year. New restrictions could include a tag system, quota system (maximum number of foreign resident hunters), or term licences (e.g., seven days).


    http://www.manitoba.ca/sd/preference_surveys.html

    This survey is open for hunters to take and voice their opinion, so I would encourage everyone to take the time to answer the survey.

    Lastly, this survey is based in Manitoba, but I am pretty sure whatever is decided here will also be implemented in Saskatchewan and Alberta.

    It's mainly Iowa and Minnesota non resident hunters looking to access the missouri river. Season long NR license vs. SD's lotteries. I don't think Nebraska gets a ton of non resident pressure anywhere else. Not sure.
