Whole outfitter crew was friendly and went overboard to make the hunt successful. They acted as one big family. I hope to go again!

I screwed up my opportunity at a bear. Not the outfitter's fault!

Epic bear hunting

Great family outfitter! Bear quality was excellent with quality and quantity. Three meals a day served to you! Our cabin was so nice and clean. It had a great view of the river and was nice and close to everything. Great equipment including the boats! We already rebooked.

We have no complaints. Honestly everything was top notch.

The Best Bear Hunting and Fishing Experience in North America

10.0 of 10

Absolutely the best hunting and fishing experience you can have in North America. No detail is overlooked. Every aspect of the time spent there is superb. I have been there twice and there is no other outfitter that I have been to in North America that can compare with them. The guides and the staff is phenomenal.

Spring Bear Hunt 2018

10.0 of 10

Vance, his family and staff, provided an unparalleled and unique hunting experience. Vance and the other guides work tirelessly to ensure that you are presented with the opportunity (actually multiple opportunities) to harvest a black bear. The cabin accommodations were spacious, clean, with amazing views of the Winnipeg River. The food is amazing and the entire staff works the hunter's hours and does not leave until all the hunters have been taken care of. Sometimes not until after midnight. The staff are there to start early the next day. Not only would I highly recommend them, but I have already booked my next hunt with them!

10.0 of 10

Vance and his guides are professional, hard working and competent. They go out of their way to ensure successful hunts and enjoyable stays for the clients. This includes diligent maintenance of a large number of baits sites to ensure high success rates; and entertaining clients with great meals (often prepared with wild game) and great conversations. These are stand-up folks who earned my respect and admiration. The bear population here is exceedingly healthy. I saw 7-8 bears on the second evening, all except 2 are good shooters. I ended up taking mine on the third evening, the largest one I saw thus far. Raw hide measured 7 feet nose to tail, with great fur. Certainly a superb choice if you want to hunt black bear. My only advice is to not jump the the gun and shoot the first bear that comes along, or your trip would be very shoot and you end up wondering what you have missed out on.

Never Quit

Even with the weather playing all kinds of unusual hell for this time of year, our guides were positive and really enjoyable company. They were 100% focused on our enjoyment and satisfaction and harvest. Vance and his staff were professional, courteous and hospitable. Enjoyed every second of the hunt, (even when I shot over the back of my first attempt 😂)

The weather was pretty much the only thing not to like.

Saw bears all 3 evenings I hunted (7 one evening) Great lodging and meals. Plenty of bears. Liked the transport to stands via boat much better than the ATVs used by many outfitters.

Pope and Young on my first trip out

10.0 of 10

Hunting was incredible. Saw bears in every sit and had some wild experiences too. Saw a boar run a sow and Cubs 100ft up a tree, good mix between mature and young bears, and two monsters. Ended up with a 600+ lb, 7' tall pope and young boar. My uncle got a nice boar and one guy in camp got a cinnamon. We fished every morning and every day (all day) after tagging out. Pike, huge walleye, and even a few good smallies. Accommodations were great. Significantly better than most hunt camps. Clean rooms and bedding, housekeeping, nice hot showers, and an unreal view. Food was incredible. Lots of game, local meats, and produce. Home cooked meals and we never went hungry. Everyone around camp is friendly, knowledgeable, and serious about your hunt and experience.

Honestly have zero complaints.

Manitoba's best value Bear hunt!

10.0 of 10

Vance works very hard to ensure the hunter's success long before the hunter arrives by baiting the stands diligently weeks before the start of the season. He has a great team of guides that see to your every need and are very knowledgeable about the area. The fishing is fantastic and is a great bonus to the hunt. Accommodations are clean and comfortable and the food is outstanding! I have hunted all over the world and they are one of the best run outfits that I have been to.

Sometimes I have had issues at the border entering into Canada....just make sure your paperwork is in order and you follow their rules.

Hospitality is outstanding. Communication prior to the hunt was excellent. They work hard at their hunting sites to ensure you will see bears. Saw bears everyday. Meals were amazing and plenty of food. The cabins we stayed in are very comfortable. To top it all off to include unlimited fishing. Wow!

I have been there more than once, and each time they met my expectations and then some. There was nothing not to like and enjoy. I have hunted with several outfitters and this is one of the best.

Saw lots of animals. Ate like kings ! I actually gained wheigh that week. Killed a great bear. Then slept ate and blood trailed bears. The staff made me feel like family. Had a absolute ball all week.

Can't say I did not like anything. The week was wonderful. Had a day of slow fishing. But it was more than made up for by a day of fantastic Small mouth fishing. Boated 29 in 4 hrs.

'Corker' Bear Hunt

10.0 of 10

I harvested a very nice 6' 8" boar, the seventh bear that came in to my stand on the second day of a six day hunt. My son harvested a 7' 2" giant boar or a 'Corker' as Vance puts it on the third day of the hunt. Vance, Maureen, the guides, the cooks all work hard to make your stay friendly, comfortable and enjoyable. Fishing and shore lunches were fabulous as well.

My son and I had to quit hunting too early as we filled our bear tags on the 2nd and 3rd day of a six day hunt. The full days of guided fishing after the hunt made up for it.

I have Black Bear hunted in Ontario, New Brunswick, Qubec,and Alaska. This is the most enjoyable hunt I have had in many years. The accomdations were very good, the meals were outstanding, the guides were helpful and informative with very good cridentials. The best thing was the Bear Hunting. I have been there twice and have been successful both times, once with a Bow and Arrow, and this year with a Muzzle Loading Rifle. I had multiple opportunities to take a Bear and decided to wait for the big one. On the last day I took a good example of a Black Bear, I had just blew the chance at a very large Bruin just 30 minutes before settleing for the last Bear I would have a chance for the hunt. I spent thousands of dollars hunting all over Canada on at least 8 different hunts. I was lucky to take a Bear only once of those 8 times. When I went with Lance I had multiple opportunities at good Bear and have been sucessful each time I hunted with them.
