This is a pretty amazing opportunity to have come up. Whoever gets these two spots won't be sorry. Alexis and his wife April run a terrific operation. Tons of bears, tons of great food and like so many others have said, you arrive as a client & leave as a friend. Classic Manitoba in every way. Most enjoyable bear hunt I've ever been on.

That didn't take long. 8~)

These guys are going to have a great time!

Can't wait to be in a tree again waiting for the bears to start sneaking into the bait. Always surprises me on how quiet they can be in the woods. Look down and there is one under the tree that you never heard coming. Awesome hunts!!!

14-Mar-17
Yes u just never know what's going to come in, sometimes the guys want me to come sit with them I think times I get more excited than them.

An odd year for cancellations its happened before not often though, we can take a guy any week. We start May 8th- June 2nd all good weeks. We don't give discounts on our spring hunts its not fair for the other guys that payed full price. At 3300.00 all included is a good price for the area, and colors we have them.

If anyone wants to have the bear hunt of a lifetime Alexis Desjardins is the guy. I have had friends come from the US to hunt with Alexis and AL and can say they run a great bear hunt. Ive guided all over Manitoba for Bear, Moose and Caribou and can say they have a great operation. Jumbo Bears at Riding Mountain!!

Thanks Dave that's a couple dandies.

Hey Dave, that was an awesome bear, congratulations! Allan sent me that picture right after you got it. Hopefully the other one walks by one of us this year. Maybe I'll see you on the way in. I'll be there the 15th-19th. For anyone looking for a top quality hunt Dave is right. It's a top quality operation and they take some jumbo bears and lots of colored bears. I've been hunting there since 2000 and have taken blonde, cinnamon, chocolate and black. I always have a great time and have never been disappointed. The only downside is I usually come home 5 pounds heavier from all the good cooking!!
