Fall hunting season is underway in Manitoba.
The Executive Director of the Manitoba Lodges and Outfitters Association, Paul Turenne, tells 680 CJOB it’s big business in the province.
He says an economic impact study done in 2012 showed that hunting and fishing brings in about 470 million dollars annually.
Turenne says that covers everything from licenses to lodges and guiding services to equipment.
Monday sees the opening of things like black bear and caribou, as well as archery season for elk, white-tail deer and moose in certain areas.
Resident water fowl season opens on Thursday.
