Location & Packing

What to Bring – Recommended Gear

Our bear hunts take place in late May and June. In June, the high daily temperatures average in the 60s to lower 70s. Moose hunts are held in mid-September till early October. September weather in northern Manitoba is similar to late October and early November weather in the upper Midwest, with periods of cool/cold, unsettled weather followed by beautiful fall like days.  Snow is a possibility in Northern Manitoba while moose hunting.

The weather in Northern Manitoba can vary greatly on a weekly and even daily basis. It is a good idea to pack for a wide range of weather conditions regardless of the timing of your trip. The following information should serve as a guide for what you will need to bring on your trip:
