The Waterfowl Hunting Season Is Coming To An End!
This is a mix Waterfowl hunting, ducks and geese. And its getting pretty chilly out but the birds are coming in pretty darn fine. The dog is one busy pup lots to retrieve.
These guys are based out of the Maritimes on the east coast of Canada. They hunt private land with permission, crown land, no outfitters, leases and do not own any land just ordinary people just like most of us.
There is a lot of Habitat conservation going on in Canada, they have a Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp, entitled Break The Ice, it features the long-tailed duck. Art work by Canadian Wildlife artist Claude Thivierge.
Through a special partnership with Environment Canada, Wildlife Habitat Canada receives the revenues from the sale of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp, purchased primarily by waterfowl hunters to validate their Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permits. The conservation stamp is also sold to stamp and print collectors and those interested in contributing to habitat conservation. In 2012–2013, Wildlife Habitat Canada provided 34 grants totalling more than $1.3 million. This in turn helped leverage an additional $9 million in partner funding for conservation projects, resulting in the conservation, restoration and enhancement of more than 1 million acres of wildlife habitat across Canada (Wildlife Habitat Canada 2013).
That’s why the waterfowl hunting and bird conservation is doing so well. There is a lot of people working to keep everything great for the waterfowl.
