About hunting in Manitoba
Manitoba, one of Canada’s three prairie provinces, covers more than 250,000 square miles and has a diversity of habitats, including boreal plains, tundra, prairie, and boreal forest. Pine and spruce forests make up about 48 percent of Manitoba’s land area. The province's northeast corner bordering Hudson Bay is considered tundra. Mixed-grass prairie and agricultural areas make up most of the rest of the province. Manitoba has an abundance of wildlife, including moose, white-tailed deer, black bears, wolves, and caribou. It also has a healthy population of polar bears, which are not currently huntable by nonresidents. To hunt big game (deer, moose, black bear, and caribou) in Manitoba, all nonresident hunters must book with a licensed outfitter and be accompanied by a licensed Manitoba guide, with no more than three hunters per guide. Manitoba is considered one of the top black bear destinations in North America. Bears can be hunted in both spring and fall; most hunting is conducted over bait, and hunters may have opportunities to take color-phase variations of black bears. White-tailed deer, some bucks tipping the scales at 250 pounds, are another big draw, along with moose and caribou. Gray wolves may be hunted by guided hunters with an unused deer, moose, black bear, or caribou tag (personal or party), which is valid for that area, species, and time period. Upland birds and waterfowl, including ducks, geese, and sandhill cranes, round out the hunting opportunities. When bringing firearms into Canada, foreign resident hunters need a permit application from the Canadian Firearms Centre (http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/fs-fd/visit-visite-eng.htm).

5 days Whitetail deer Interlake Area '20 Canada
The Deer area consists of up to 2000 square miles and gives alot of opportunity at harvesting a mature buck that scores 120 plus. The Interlake Area is known for getting huge monster whitetails with scores like 197 typical a few years ago. Whitetails in this remote hunting area receive little to no pressure. This area produces typical and non-typical bucks consistently every year with real potential for a Boone and Crockett buck. Pre-scouting is done and ladder stands or ground blinds are strategically placed to catch monster bucks cruising for does during the peak of the rut. Stand locations are typically placed at pinch points and funnels or overlooking tracts of grassy meadows and/or bogs. Transportation and access to stand locations is provided by any combination of ATV’s, Side by Side’s, Argo or 4WD vehicles. Prices are on a 5 day hunt, with an additional 3 days available for an additional $400/day per person cost if wanting to prolong your hunt. White-tailed deer tags are additional $332.75 CAD and not included in the price. Please inquire for available dates.

Spring Baited Black Bear Hunt '20 Canada
Our guides will either pick you up at the Winnipeg Airport or meet you in the town of St. Laurent or Teulon. We will then embark on a five-day black bear hunting trip in Manitoba's pristine Interlake. You will choose whether you prefer the outpost camp experience, with BBQ and campfire cooked meals, or the hotel experience, where you will sleep in the comfort of one our recommended hotels and eat in local restaurants (at your own expense). Hunts will be done out of a two-person treestand with one person per stand for added space and comfort. Hunters will be driven into bait sites by ATV or truck. For really remote locations some walking may be required in order to get to bait site. Hunters can use a bow, muzzleloader or rifle. You will arrive one day before your first hunt day and depart the day after your last hunt day. Our guides are professional, hard working and will do everything they can to put you on big Interlake bears.
