Hope everyone has a chance to look at our “NEW” trail cam pics of some of the Agassiz black bears from 2012 and 2013 that we just put up (click on: Agassiz Black Bear Trail Camera Pics on home page). This is just a very small sample of the quality, size and color of alot of our black bears in our areas which is considered some of the best black bear habitat in the world! Enjoy!!
Bear fat can be rendered down into an oil to use in cooking. Is is extremely tasty and adds great flavor to dishes. Bear meat is also excellent done up in roasts, honey hams, hamburger, jerky, sausage and pepperettes.
Bear burger used in spaghetti sauces, lasagna, chillis, hamburgers, on pizza, soups, etc.. are just a few other great ways to enjoy the great taste of bear meat. We also have guests who tell us they can their bear meat and is excellent done this way too.
Please check out our Waterfowl Information Page under the Waterfowl Tab on our Home Page http://agassizoutfitters.com/manitoba-waterfowl-hunts/waterfowl-information-rates/ for our updated information on camp location and accommodation for our waterfowl packages!!!
Most of our black bears are finally denned up. This fall was extremely long and warm as some bears where still being spotted by deer hunters up until last week. The long and warm Manitoba fall really was excellent for the bears as they had a lot of time to put on weight before denning up, and that they did! Every bear that I saw and reports from other people seeing them, is that they are all in excellent shape going into their dens. Natural food such as berries, acorns, frogs, etc where plentiful and easy to find. Seeing bears this late into November in Manitoba is extremely rare.
Therefore, the black bears in our hunting areas of Manitoba WILL enjoy an excellent winter and should come out of the dens in excellent shape; meaning the 2014 spring outlook for Agassiz Outfitters is great as always!! Also, with the amount of bears our fall bear hunters saw our future looks extremely bright. We look forward to our 2014 spring black bear season already and look forward to seeing all of our valued guests!!
p.s. Our ”NEW” black bear ad is currently out in Bear Hunting Magazine and will run as always till May. Hope everybody has a great winter!!!

We are extremely pleased and excited to announce the new changes happening with our operation; Agassiz Outfitters. As of September 16,2013 we have sold the “Waterhen River Lodge” and moved our black bear operation, which will now be known as AGASSIZ LODGE & OUTFITTERS, to our other camp “TAN LAKE”. Plans are also in the works to expand our black bear operation in this area.
We are gearing up for another busy 2014 Spring Black Bear Season and in preparation for it, we have made extensive renovations to our camp and are in the process of opening up more “NEW” territory in the heart of bear country and will continue to offer World Class Black Bear Hunting at its Finest!!! Starting fall of 2014 we will be running our World Class Waterfowl Hunts in the south-east part of Manitoba to which so many of you enjoyed as this is where we started our outfitting business 22 years ago.
At this time we would like to thank each & every guest that has stayed with us at the Agassiz Waterhen River Lodge over the past 12 years. We appreciated your business and have so many everlasting memories and new friendships that we will always cherish . We look forward to seeing everyone again real soon!!
If you would like to get in touch with us for more information on any of our ”World Class Hunts” or on your upcoming hunting trips, please visit our contact page for our updated information, we would love to hear from you.
Happy Hunting and Best Wishes,
Rick, Colleen, Brendan & Jordan Liske
