Definitely need to be careful with fires! Within the Manitoba's provincial parks (these pictures are along the border between Whiteshell & Nopiming Provincial Parks), all fires must be within established fire pits. Outside of the provincial parks open fires are allowed.

I spent some time in the area of Medicine Hat a long time ago and thought I was in paradise. I still remember chasing Buffalo across the Prairie and baiting Gophers.

I'm working on it. Once I figure out how to spin a buck off my RIB/SIB addiction rather than spending all of my money on it, I'll let you in on the secret.
Medicine Hat is an interesting semi desert area on the western edge of the Canadian Prairies, whereas as Winnipeg is on the eastern edge of those prairies. East of here is the Lake country of the Canadian Shield, west of here are the flat prairies and gophers.
How flat are the prairies? - well you can watch your dog run away from home for 3 days, you cannot fall to your death & if you're sleepy & happen to drive off the road - no problem, you'll find another one!
In the Canadian Shield, you won't likely see gophers or bison, but you can expect to see marmots/groundhogs, chipmunks, loons, mergansers & bald eagles such as these which were at my campsite.
What you don't want to see at your campsite are black bears, wolverines or mosquitos (no avoiding the last one).
