Late spring some of the relatives had some guys out last week they got a few down in the farmlands, no bear along the mountain they will move soon snow is just about gone thank goodness. I’m glad we r starting mid month into June hoping for a good safe one. Blessings
Looking forward to following along again. Wishing you the best!
Couple of us will be hunting with your nephew again. Good bear outfitters run in your family!
Hey Lexi, any sightings of bears at the baits or on your scouting cams? Looks like your temps are in the upper 60's lower 70's. That should get them moving
First sign of bear this morning just put a cam up on this one. Good luck Frank at the nephews.
I think we will be in good shape for the 16th Gary praying anyways.
On the ay to the hill? Last pic?
Awesome pic. Up close and personal!
Hi Alexis That was a nice bear looks like that was bear city?
We moved bear city we’re 1/2 miles east now it’s been about 4 years I think Randy.
Glad the snow is going, shoot some big ones, and some beautiful color, can't wait to see the pictures. God Bless.
First pic looks like a dandy, and chocolate also. Keep pics/updated coming please. Best of luck.
Leaving for Manitoba tomorrow. Looking like a wet week. Bears don't move much in the rain so hope the weather guys are wrong.
Good luck this year uncle, we’re finally able to get into the baits now with the quads had to bait with the snowmobiles. Got some big bears on camera so things are looking good. Hope all is well. Evan.
Wow. That came fast Joe…I wish you a safe trip, enjoy yourself, and do your video thing! Can’t wait to hear about the hunt. Greg
The snow is just about gone here too Evan I imagine on top of the hills there’s still some hope your spring goes well stay safe. Blessings guys.
First bear of the year told the wife the beaver was gone but no tracks but the camera got him.
Looks like it has a white blaze between the front legs
Yes he does Don he’s in good shape too with the long winter, some of the ones in the farmland were skinny the younger ones don’t do as well getting weight on and besides there still growing.
Yes Greg not much action yet lots of snow yet on top will be another week before that’s gone.
Well it’s getting close to show time the bears r starting to move it will just get better I believe no snow in the forecast lol.
Have a great season Alexis!

We don’t have to kill them big ones to prove Manitoba has big bears like anywhere and better than some places, if a guy is happy with a big bear we’re happy if there happy with a smaller bear we’re happy for them. We have some incredible bears nice to get a pic off them.

You are doing great! Congratulations again to all of your hunters.
Our crew had a great time as well with your nephew and crew. Not only is your sister a great cook, she is a gem of a person! I know you already know that, but I am glad I have become friends with some of your family. Blessings back to you!
Thanks guys, my last guy he’s hunting a big bear seen him both nights last night he come into the bait 19 yards ,had him in a blind was at last shooting time could not make that perfect shot so he passed told him he did the right thing. He’s trying him again tonight. Good night folks.

We had a fun season with good memories lots of laughs doesn’t get any better. We want to thank Jesus Christ for safety and new friends. Blessings folks till this fall.
The Boys r headed back to Wisconsin. Thanks to Desjardins for a great bear hunt and hospitality. The Boys r hoping to be back soon!!
Just spent two of the best weeks of the year. Hunted with Desjardins the week of May 30th. Then traveled seven hours northwest to hunt Saskatchewan. Truly a bear Hunter’s dream. April and Alexis Desjardins live in a bear Hunter’s paradise. If you are considering a bear hunt that is truly amazing, THIS is the place. There are a lot of references on their website. Pick any one you want, and the answer will probably be the same. “You won’t believe it until you hunted with them. “
Grape, everything you posted is spot on. Truly great people and hunting near the amazing Riding mountains. Life is good!!!
Thanks guys we had many new guests this spring all amazing people and our old friends also truly blessed to have crossed paths with them. God bless on your day.
