It's More Than Just a Hunt

Spring Bear Hunt

The Primal Instinct crew finished up the 2010-2011 hunting season in northwest Manitoba with an excellent hunt with Duck Mountain Outfitters.  As the 2011 spring black bear season was closing in, excitement was building with just four days left to hunt.  Unfortunately, two of those days the forecast called for heavy rain so we knew we were in for an adventure.  Despite the rain, as bears aren’t nearly as active in inclement weather, we still saw quite a few.  Once the rain cleared, the bears were on the move and we were seeing an average of ten to fifteen bears a night!

Duck Mountain Outfitters supplied excellent food, lodging, and company and the hunting was second to none.  Truly, a full service organization.  We woke up to a wonderful breakfast and returned to camp to find a delicious dinner laid out on the table.  Tom at Duck Mountain Outfitters ran an first-rate operation and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a trophy black bear.  Check out their site for more information.

We ended up having a number of close encounters and killing a total of four nice bears.   Make sure you catch the episode when it airs on Versus starting this fall!
