Phone: (860) 463-6699

Email: info@nictaulodge.com

Nictau Lodge is one of the premier black bearhunting locations on the east coast of Canada! We lease over 350,000 acres of land and run over 70 different bait site locations all behind a locked gate system which limits access to those who carry access passes! Don't get this confused with high fence as there are none. This land is owned by lumber companies which lease land to use for the purpose of hunting.

Every stand (all new ladder stands) will be set for the clients weapon of choice and will have had trail cameras on them. Our clients are often impressed with not only the number of bears they see but the quality of the bears as well! When hunting for black bears with us at Nictau Lodge you will also get in some great fishing action on the Tobique River!

NOTE: If you tag-out early in the week and would like to continue hunting, we offer a second bear hunt for $1500 USD, all inclusive.
*** If you prefer to fly, we offer an airport pickup and drop-off service from Presque Isle Maine Airport PQE for a fee of $100 USD ***

Nictau Lodge offers SPECIAL Group Rates. For more information contact us @ 1-860-463-6699 or use the contact form on our Contact page.

Manitoba - Canadian Wilderness Outfitters

Canadian Wilderness Outfitters

Canadian Wilderness Outfitters

The best bear hunting in Canada is with the Canadian Wilderness Outfitters. The Canadian Wilderness Outfitters have been hunting bear in the Duck Mountains of Manitoba since 1996. The dense forested areas and rich agricultural land of the Swan River Valley provide the habitat and food source required to hunt the biggest trophy bears in Manitoba. If you’re looking to hunt trophy black bear or trophy brown bear, this is the Manitoba bear hunt for you.

SPRING OR FALL BEAR HUNT?

We hunt from mid May to Mid June then again end of August to mid September. When is the best time? Depends on your schedule & what you want in a bear. There is no size difference between a Spring bear skull and a Fall bear skull. However, there are major seasonal differences in weight and fur conditions. A bear can emerge in the Spring from its winter den weighing 30% less than it did in the Fall. While a bear dens he is living off his fat reserve. It is essential that during the Fall prior to denning a bear must gorge himself to put on all this extra weight. Therefore, that Fall bear can be huge due to this massive weight gain. Fur conditions also vary from season to season. Most hunters believe a bear’s fur is finest soon after den emergence in the Spring. That is when the guard hairs are the longest & the under fur the thickest. It is during the Spring that hunters must look at the condition of the fur carefully before shooting. Bears will scratch & rub themselves to help shed this heavy coat of fur leaving rubbed marks. A hunter may see a bear that has bare patches on their hind quarters or behind their front shoulders. A Fall bear fur will be sleek, dense, & shiny with no rubs. The benefit of being able to "look a bear over" while on a bait is that you can observe for the quality of the fur.  

Manitoba Black Bears can come in "color phase" of brown, cinnamon and chocolate colors and as light as blonde.

Bear hunting requires some knowledge of bears, so we try our best to educate our hunters about judging bears for size, fur quality and sex. When you arrive we have "Bear School" where we discuss methods of baiting, hunting, recovering bears, our routine and the reasons for it, usual bear activity, how to judge bears, and most important the killing shot.

 Routine:

  1. Breakfast: Anytime
  2. Recovering Bears, Skinning Bears, Preparing Baits
  3. Lunch: Meal at Camp or Bagged Lunch to bring with you to the stand
  4. Leave Camp: Between 2pm-4pm
  5. Hunters settle into their stands: Between 4pm-5pm
  6. Hunt: Until dark which is around 10pm-11pm
  7. Back to camp and a meal: 12am

 We access our areas by truck, quads and walking. Our stands are about 12-16 feet off the ground, or ground blinds that are between 10-75 yards from the bait depending upon what weapon you are shooting; gun or bow.


We try to obey good hunting principles of keeping scent to a minimum.  Our wilderness tent camp is at the base of the North slope of the Duck Mountains. We utilize canvas tents with hard floors & walls, bunk beds with good mattresses, rifle and archery range with meals in the main tent cabin.

Bear Hunts

Baldy Mountain Outfitters is located in the Duck Mountains of Manitoba, Canada and is one of the Hot Spots in North America for hunting trophy-size and color phase black bears including chocolate, cinnamon and blonde. This rolling, forested land is filled with lakes, swamps and streams and known for consistently producing high numbers of bears as well as bears with record dimensions. It also holds some of the highest color phase ratios in Canada. Baldy Mountain Outfitters has the largest hunting territory in the Duck Mountains at over 264,000 acres – an exclusive area which no other Outfitter is allowed to hunt. This is unlike some areas in Manitoba where Outfitters’ allocation areas overlap and are in competition of each other. With this low-pressure prime hunting area, Baldy Mountain Outfitters is able to provide a sustainable harvest of premium trophy and color phase bears.

This area in the Duck Mountains, previously owned by Tom and Debbie Ainsworth of Grandview Outfitters, had a legacy of producing trophy and color phase bears for over 30 years, with many repeat guests. The ideal landscape and virtually no pressure from local hunters also led to high numbers of bears consistently coming to the sites. Baldy Mountain Outfitters now owns and operates from this same area and long-established bait sites, plus has continued to expand its territory.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality of black bear hunting and bear harvesting in the industry while keeping it personal and conserving this rich resource for the future.

Why Us?

  1. We are passionate about bear hunting and providing premium-quality hunts
  2. High ethical standards in service provision and conservation management
  3. Among the highest success rates across North America for trophy class (Boone and Crockett) and color phase bears
  4. Consistently high numbers of bears  
  5. Largest outfitting territory in the Duck Mountains of Manitoba
  6. Exclusive Outfitter rights for the hunting area
  7. Professional, experienced and knowledgeable guides
  8. Personable hunts that build relationships
  9. We like to have fun and have fun while we hunt
  10. Always working to improve and responsive to suggestions from guests
