St. Hubertus – Game and Fish

St. Hubertus is a group of sportsmen affiliated with the Manitoba Wildlife Federation.

St. Hubertus is the German patron saint of wildlife and hunters!

This club manages a conservation area around Libau and is one of the driving forces in Manitoba for the conservation of our environment and wildlife.

Many Canadians are members of this club who practise the rich traditions of St Hubertus.  If you are interested in the outdoors or support environmental conservation, you may want to join our group.
