Sclater River Outfitters


WE are a family operated guiding and outfitting business, specializing in personalized trophy black bear hunts. We have been outfitting, guiding and hunting the black bear for over 35 years. We will make every effort to ensure your hunt is successful and memorable.

Our 5 day hunts include accommodations, meals, guides, and transportation to and from hunting sights.

Spring hunts (May into June) and fall hunts (August into September) are done over well established bait sights, located north east of the Duck Mountain Provincial Forest near Cowan, Manitoba. To get to the bait sights we use 4x4’s, atvs and an argo. Hunters can have a choice to use bow, rifle or muzzle loaders.

Manitoba Conservation gives each outfitter a large track of land to manage and there is little to no hunting pressure from other hunters.

The Cowan area holds one of the largest population of black bears in Manitoba and the population is thriving, giving the hunter the highest success rate and opportunity to harvest a trophy animal.
