Manitoba Bear Hunt Anyone?

We are headed back to Manitoba Memorial Day week with Sandy River Outfitters!  Nothing would be better then sharing this hunt with some of our readers.

Sandy River Outfitters is one of our advertisers and I have known Harry Walker since my days of being an outfitter.  We were on the same trade show circuit and became good friends.  I had the pleasure in 2008 of hunting both black bear and whitetail deer with Harry in Manitoba and the hunts left me wanting more…

I took a great black bear with an absolutely perfect coat and darn close to a Pope and Young bear.  This year, I am hoping to hold out for something bigger and I am already very excited about the opportunity to get back into bear camp.

Bear Camp is a casual affair.  Pick-up is on Sunday in Winnipeg with plenty of time to sight in the rifles and bows and get in some practice.  Dinner is excellent and Monday the excitement builds with some fishing out the door of the house on the Winnipeg River for Walleye, Smallmouth and Pike.  I caught about 70 pike over the week, fishing from the rocks along the shore.

The first night on the stand brought forth a chocolate boar that was destined for Paul Bambara and I waited out the week looking for the Bear of my dreams.  He came out on the last night and scared off the biggest bear of the week but gave me the shot of a lifetime and I took him.  Over the week, I saw bears every single night as well as 3 wolves on night number 5 in the stand.  I look forward to heading back…
