North Mountain Adventures Guiding & Outfitting is a family owned and operated full service Outfitter offering Manitoba Black Bear hunts. Owner and main guide, Craig MacCarthy has been a guide for many years and has enjoyed guiding for other outfitters in both Manitoba and British Columbia. He began as a teenager helping with his parent's outfitting business then decided to embark on his own outfitting adventure in 2014 with his wife Melanie!
Our mission is to do everything possible to make sure everyone has the best possible chance at harvesting a trophy animal and have fun while doing it!
Craig MacCarthy has spent his entire life hunting and fishing in this area and has an extensive knowledge of the terrain and the animals. Craig is also an avid bow hunter himself so he knows what it takes to get close and remain undetected.
The area that we hunt is just North & East of Riding Mountain National Park. This area of Manitoba is well known for producing some of the largest bears on record and for its high percentage of color phase bears, ranging from blonde to cinnamon to chocolate.
North Mountain Adventures offers Black bear hunts in a trophy rich area of Manitoba. Most of these bears have rarely seen a human allowing them to reach maturity and trophy quality. The lush forests, agricultural fields and good supply of big game provide plenty of feed for the bears making this an ideal habitat.
Most bear hunts are located on private land North and East of Riding Mountain National Park. You will be hunting out of 10-16' high ladder stands placed within 30 yards of the bait. Stands will be placed accordingly to accomodate an archery or rifle hunt. Ground blinds are available if climbing a ladder stand presents an obstacle. Hunters will be transported directly to the stands by 4 x4 pickup or ATV.
Hunters who choose to fly will land in Winnipeg, Canada and rent a vehicle. You will then drive approximately 3 hours Northwest to our location where you will be met by the outfitter. Hunters will stay in a cabin where breakfast items will be provided for hunters to eat at their leisure. A full dinner will be provided early afternoon, prior to the hunt and then lunch served in the evening following the hunt. Hunters will have the opportunity to accompany the outfitter and check bear baits prior to the afternoon hunt if desired.
