The Manitoba Wildlife Federation is thrilled to deliver this event at the Brandon Gun Club, a facility that has been operating in Brandon since the early 1960’s. The club has been providing exceptional shooting opportunities to the residents of Brandon and the surrounding area, as well has hosted the Canadian Trapshooting Championships in 1984. Since its inception, the club has expanded to 18 trap houses, a skeet layout and a 5-stand sporting clay, allowing the Brandon Gun Club to facilitate all shotgun sports.

Volunteers from the Brandon Wildlife Association will also be onsite assisting with the event delivery. Brandon Wildlife Association is one of Manitoba’s largest clubs, boasting over 1000 members and actively supporting provincial and national matches, Junior Rifle and Junior Shotgun Programs.

“We are excited to deliver Provincial Hunting Day this year in Brandon and have the ability to share our outdoor passions with a new area of the province”, said Carly Deacon, Program Manager with the MWF. “The number of exhibitors has grown and visitors can look forward to a variety of fun and exciting demonstrations. Provincial Hunting Day is fun for the entire family and reminds us of the significant contributions hunters make to conservation programs in Manitoba, and the need to promote and preserve this rich tradition”.
