Spring 2018 - Roberts Wisconsin
If you are looking for a quality bear hunt with a quality outfitter look no further. Agassiz Outfitters is a top notch operation that knows how to get you a quality trophy. The first thing I can tell you about is the camp. Colleen, Rick and the guides will have you feeling like family the second you arrive. Cabins are clean and comfortable and the meals that Colleen fixes are worth the trip by themselves. The other thing I like about the camp is that fishing is good around the area. If you hunt in a group camp life can be boring as you wait for other hunters. We bring fishing gear because the area has excellent fishing. Rick and Colleen have a boat we use and it makes the week even better. The main reason you hunt at Agassiz Outfitters though is the bear hunting. Rick and his guides have countless baits set up and always put the hard work in that you hope for. Some baits can be an hour car ride and miles back into the swamps. Others can involve a boat ride or trip in the Argo. Make no mistake, when you get in your stand you are hunting. At Agassiz outfitters I've sat in stands where bears are in 20 minutes after you crawl into the tree and the bait has a bear in it until dark. Stands where at any minute you could see a chocolate, cinnamon, or blond. In the area they hunt an absolute giant can walk into the bait at anytime. This past year I shot my best bear yet during the last 20 minutes of my hunt. He scored 20 9/16 after drying. My previous best, a giant chocolate was also shot at Agassiz Outfitters a couple years earlier. I would recommend hunting with Agassiz Outfitters to anyone looking for a top quality bear hunt as well as returning for another hunt myself in the near future.

Fall 2018 Moose - Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
I've been fortunate enough to have went on a number of different hunts throughout the U.S. and have enjoyed them all. About 4 years ago my buddy Hank and I decided it was time to look into booking our bucket list hunt, a moose hunt. After lots of research we narrowed it down to a couple outfitters. Fortunately Rick and Colleen attended the Deer and Turkey Expo in Madison, WI and we made plans to look them up. We spent nearly 2 hours with them at the Expo and even got to meet the legendary guide himself, Bob the Stalker. The professionalism was obvious from the start and there was no doubt this was the place for us. We booked the hunt (my first guided hunt) that same week. Fast forward 3 years to the fall of 2018. The excitement of the upcoming hunt and first time float plane trip was almost more than I could handle. We won the lottery and were paired up with Bob and Bryan. These guys know more about moose than the moose themselves! Camp was rustic and comfortable. The food was great and the company even better. I went into the hunt hoping to get a bull with my bow. Bryan did everything in his power to try and make it happen but after 3 days it was pretty obvious that due to the weather and high water, being successful with the bow was going to be next to impossible. I think on a normal year my chances would have been much better. I switched over to the rifle and man am I glad I did. I was fortunate enough to end up smack dab in the middle of moose paradise and took a bull of a lifetime. This hunt was everything I ever dreamed of and more. If your looking for a true wilderness experience totally away from everything with the hardest working guides around, this is the place to go. I have a feeling (and hope) my once-in-a-lifetime hunt just might happen again. Thanks again Agassiz Outfitters for my greatest hunting experience to date.
May 2018 - Toledo, Ohio
Rick and Colleen I would like to thank you for giving me the Best Bear Hunt I have ever been on. I could not have asked for you to do anything better than you did. I have been on more than 5 guided bear hunts and 12 guided elk hunts and have never had a better experience than the one I had at Agassiz! From the moment we arrived in camp you made me feel welcome and part of the group. First there was the food. It was delicious and you always went out of your way to ensure everyone had more than enough to eat! Second was the camp it was clean when we arrived including the beds turned down. The bear hunt itself was exceptional! I hunted for 3 days to get my bear. On the first night saw 4 bears including 2 big ones. The only problem was I did heed Rick’s advice on judging size and let a 300+ pound bear that I had a 3 yards walk. On the first night I also got to witness a wolf stroll by and took some pictures of him. Second night got to watch a 200-pound bear eat so much orange licorice that the bear walked off into the bush and laid down on its side and moan from what I think was belly ache from eating so much. On the third night the same bear from previous night showed up. I made the decision to take this bear at 21 yards. The shot was less than perfect and I wondered if I would ever see it again. It took the tireless work of Jordan, Brendan, and Greg to recover the bear. I have never seen more dedicated guides in finding the bear. Then to top it off Brendan carried the bear out on his back for almost a mile! I came to Manitoba for an adventure but never expected that much of one. It was truly an experience of a lifetime. Thanks again for making my 2018 spring bear hunt one I will remember for a lifetime.
