A big thank you to everyone who took the time to come down to the Northwest Sportshow in Minneapolis last week to visit us and talk about hunting, fishing and anything else the great outdoors has to offer! We are in Madison,WI on April 10,11 and 12 for the Deer and Turkey Expo and cant wait to see everyone there. The spring black bear season is right around the corner and for those who we didn’t get a chance to see at the shows, we look forward to seeing real soon at camp…..Rick
We are just 2 short months away from the start of the 2015 spring black bear season and we cant wait! As of right now, we have approximately 3-31/2 feet of snow up at our camp after yesterdays snow fall. The month of February has been a cold one but the deep snow that our area had, has helped our bears winter excellent once again. We look forward to seeing everyone this spring!
We will be attending both the Northwest Sportshow in Minneapolis, MN on March 25 – March 29, 2015 and the Field & Stream Outdoor Life Deer & Turkey Expo on April 10 – April 12, 2015 in Madison, Wisconsin.
Looking forward to seeing everyone real soon!
Hope everyone had the opportunity to check out our 1/2 page ad in the January/February edition of “Bear Hunting Magazine” which also featured a picture of one of our guests with a good black bear he took with his bow last spring in the photo gallery section of the magazine. Please watch for our “NEW” 1/2 page ad which will be out in the March/April edition of “Bear Hunting Magazine” also and another one of our guests will also be featured in the photo gallery section as well.

With the spring black bear season set to open on April 27 this spring, that means we are only 104 days away! And the countdown has begun!! As of right now, we have approximately 12-16 inches of snow up at camp and with the very late fall we had in 2014, all of the bears denned up in excellent shape and are wintering real good. We hope everyone is having a good winter and cant wait to see you this spring!
For those guests that want all the contact information of our taxidermist here in Manitoba, all you have to do is go to the bottom of our “Home Page” and click on the link: “Swan Valley Taxidermy” and Carl will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Happy New Year to everyone and here’s hoping that 2015 brings you good health and best of luck out in the field or out on the water from your friends at Agassiz Outfitters!
We just want to take this opportunity to wish all of our family, friends and valued hunting/fishing guests a very Merry Christmas and all the best in 2015!!!
Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings from Rick, Colleen, Brendan and Jordan
The spring hatch up in central Manitoba during the spring of 2014 was beyond exceptional therefore the local birds and the start of the migration made for quite a site by the time we started our hunt which is always September 24th. So as you can imagine and as all our guests who have hunted with us in the past can testify, I was pretty pumped and excited for the season to begin!
On opening day it was extremely warm with a high of +28 Celsius. The hunting was still excellent as groups saw excellent mallard and goose hunting that opening day. The next day also, saw limits of greater Canada’s which where had by 8:30 a.m.! The high that morning was +30 Celsius which of course really put a hold on the migration, but nonetheless, plenty of birds where around to make for some “world class” hunting! On September 26, all groups shot their limits of mallards and greaters on the fields in +30 Celsius temperatures but the next day finally a cold front really saw the temperatures dip to +7 C with a low at night of +2 C. Sitting by the fire that night with the guests, we could really hear the snow geese and greater/ lesser Canada geese coming down from the north. That next morning, our good ole buddy the `General ‘ was back in camp with his crew and they had all their birds by 9:00a.m.! Even the next two days the `General ‘and his party had their mallards and greater Canada’s out in the grain fields!
With the cold front that lasted the next several days, birds littered the fields and marshes. The one morning even our husband and wife parties from Alaska and Minnesota saw some snow flurries in the morning but also saw `World Class Waterfowl Hunting` with it! They told us; `that they had never seen bird hunting like this before, as they too have hunted birds all over North America. On October 7th, 10 inches of snow hit parts of the north which really pushed the birds down. From here on in the hunting was unbelievable and stayed good to the end. It stayed extremely warm till well into November and lots of birds were still around till November 10th due to the open water yet!”
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for hunting Waterfowl with us this fall and hope to see you all again real soon!!
