Black bear hunting in Manitoba Canada with River Country Outfitters. We hunt Black Bear with muzzleloader, rifle or bow. Come and experience the adventure of a lifetime!
My name is Darrell Mack. My wife Candace and I own and operate River Country Outfitters out of The Pas, Manitoba, along the scenic Saskatchewan River. I have more than 26 years combined experience hunting and guiding in various locations in Northern Manitoba. Brian also has more than 20 years hunting and fishing experience and is my licensed guide.
Our prices are about the best in Manitoba, and our hunting success rate is high. Bear size and color is excellent.
"We give friendly Manitoba a whole new meaning"
Hunting Area: Our camp is in MGHA 8, off the Saskatchewan River, in the Kelsey Lake area. The area has only been hunted for the last 9 years. This combined with the vast remoteness of the area makes for a higher percentage of large bears, 30% of which are colored.
Typical Day: Breakfast starts at 8 am. After breakfast , you can sharpen your aim with some target practice, go fishing for some tasty walleye, or just relax until about 2 pm. Between 4-5 pm you and your guide will be in a boat heading out to one of the baits. You will be in your stand by 5:30 pm. Your guide will walk you to your stand and makes sure you are set. Most of our stands are only 75-150 yards from the river. If you need a guide to stay with you on your stand, let us know ahead of time so that we can make arrangements.
Hunting Limits: One bear by rifle, archery or muzzle loader. No female accompanied by cubs may be harvested. One wolf can also be taken in the fall wolf season.
We Provide: Bear licenses, transportation from The Pas, or The Pas Airport to our remote camp, tent lodging, meals, boat, motor & gas, guide and boat transportation to & from the stand, tree stand & ground blinds, meat and hide care, taxidermy ready. All stands are baited daily.
You Provide: Rifle, bow, ammo, personal gear (clothes, including bug jacket), seat belt for tree stand, fishing gear, sleeping bag, transportation to and from The Pas. Camo is recommended; however, hunting regulations state for fall hunting you must have a blaze orange cap and 400 sq. in of blaze orange on your jacket.
Hunting Camp Facilities:We have outpost tent camp facilities along the Saskatchewan River. The sleeping tent is 14' x 16' outfitted with 6 built in cots style beds, 2 feet off the floor. The tent is heated with a glass fronted wood stove, wired for lights and an outlet. The 18' 27' dining tent is covered, to protect from rain and mosquitoes. It houses the deep freeze, a large table with 2 large counters, one with a double sink, hot and cold running water. There is plenty of room for gear or just kickin' back.
Sport Fishing: Fish for Walleye and Northern Pike during the day. Combination packages are available for bear/trout also. The abundance of water and the rich variety of fish species stage The Pas and the surrounding area for some of the best sport fishing opportunities in both summer and winter months. A total of 66 fish species are known to inhibit the water bodies of the area.
It has been identified that the most abundant and widespread sport and commercial fish species in the area are walleye, lake trout, lake whitefish, northern pike, cisco, white sucker, burbot and yellow perch. Other sport and commercial species that are less abundant but may still be widely distributed throughout the area include goldeye, sucker, and sauger. The region boasts some of the most legendary trophy fishing lakes in Manitoba such as Clearwater Lake, Cormorant Lake and Athapapuskwa Lake. The Grass River and the Saskatchewan River also offer excellent fishing opportunities for walleye, northern pike, lake sturgeon, sucker, burbot, etc. Clearwater Lake, second clearest lake in the world, is well known for its year-round trophy lake trout fishing. In general, trout population spread throughout the lake in spring and fall, and in the deeper holes during summer.
