Trophy Black Bear Hunting
At Sandy River Outfitters we specialize in trophy black bear hunting. We have all of the Canadian black bear color phases including blonde, cinnamon and chocolate. Deep in the heart of Manitoba’s lush forests you will find a hunting experience unlike any other. Our exclusive bear hunting area is comprised of over 2000 square miles of dense bush and remote wilderness. Our bait sites are extremely remote, accessible only by four wheel all terrain vehicles (ATV). All of our Canada bear hunts include fishing as our lodge is located on the Winnipeg River.
Pre-baited Bear Hunting Stands
All bait locations are pre-baited at least a month before the hunter’s arrival. This ensures that all bait sites are active. Our bow hunting stands are 14 to 16 yards from the bait and our rifle stands are no more than 20 yards. These up close and personal distances allow the hunter the opportunity to accurately judge the size of the bear.
Experienced Black Bear Guides and Total Hunter Satisfaction
Our guides ensure that every hunter has a successful and memorable hunting experience. With over fifty years of combined guiding experience, we ensure that every hunter has the opportunity to harvest a trophy Manitoba black bear. We strive for total hunter satisfaction.
Family Hunting Experiences
Most of our stands will accommodate two hunters so that a parent can hunt with their child of 12 years of age or older. If desired, a guide can accompany a young hunter as requested. A hunter may also bring a non-hunter to fish. Every year we successfully guide young hunters and their parents.
Canada Bear Hunts
Manitoba’s black bear population has been exploding with a ten percent increase every three years. Every hunter over the past twenty years has had the opportunity to harvest a trophy bear while hunting with Sandy River Outfitters.
The Complete Hunting Experience
Our hunting camp is located on the banks of the Winnipeg River at our private lodge. Fishing, boats and motors are included with every bear hunt. Fall bear hunters are also given the opportunity to kill a timber wolf and coyote while hunting for their trophy black bear. The opportunity of taking one of these elusive animals as a part of your black bear hunt is only permitted in Manitoba.
