Species
Desjardins Outfitting started offering Manitoba Bear Hunts in 1994 and throughout the years we have had many record book bears harvested. Alexis Desjardins is a long time member of the Manitoba Lodge and Outfitters Association and has many years of experience guiding & hunting black bear, deer, moose, elk and fishing throughout Manitoba. Through the years he has gained an extensive knowledge of the bears seasonal patterns, living and eating habits.

The area that we hunt is located on the Northeast side of Riding Mountain National Park. This area is known worldwide for its tremendous trophy potential and also for the high percentage of color phase bears that it produces. It also has one of the highest Black Bear densities in North America. Here you can hunt with your choice of rifle, bow, or black powder. We also have fishing close by.

Both spring and fall bear hunts are conducted mostly on private farms along the border of Riding Mountain National Park. Hunting is not allowed in the park. The bears come out of the park to feed in the agricultural fields. The baits are located along the bears travel routes where the forest meets the farmland. Most of these bears have never seen a human before.

You will be hunting out of comfortable ladder stands 10' to 16' high and 15 to 25 yards from the bait. Stands are placed with the wind direction in mind and set up for both gun and bow hunters. The baits are a short 15 to 30 minute drive from where you will be staying. All of the baits you will be hunting are active and most will have multiple bears hitting them. Our hunters also take a very high percentage of color phase bears each year. In the past 15 years our hunters have had a 100% shot opportunity and a 95% kill rate. Spring hunts start at the beginning of May. Fall hunts start at the end of August.

​Hunters fly into Winnipeg and rent a car. They then drive to Alexis & April's farm. Then we will bring you to our out-camp to get settled in. (Cell Service Available) Hunters will eat breakfast on their own. We serve you a big home style dinner early in the afternoon before you go out and then lunch when you return in the evening after your hunt.

Beautiful bears

There's just not more I could add to what others have said in the past about Alexis, April and their family. While of course being there for a bear hunt is why you go, being there with them just adds so much more to the total experience. I've seen guys post about coming in as "clients" but leaving as friends - it's true. Very true. They have a very unique way of making you feel as though you really are a part of their family. The food was amazing. We felt like we were eating Sunday dinner at every meal and just like at home, you ate your meals at their kitchen table with their family. And not only was every meal delicious, there was more than enough to go around - over and over. It was amazing. Thank you April - thanks for all your hard work. It was great! The hunt of course was terrific. Most of us have seen Alexis' spring and fall threads and we follow them like a teenager on Facebook. Our fall hunt was no different then what we've seen in the past. Absolutely fantastic. Beautiful bears, tons of them and beautiful country. Classic Manitoba in every way. It's so redundant for all who have hunted with Desjardins Outfitting but all I can say is the same as so many others have said - thanks so much for all your hard work and for such a great week. It was the most enjoyable week ever and we can't wait for a return trip!
