All Manitoba black bear hunts will take place on the fringe of the Riding Mountain National Park, this alone should tell you that you are in an area that boosts some of the largest Black Bears in Canada. To top it off this area of Manitoba has some of the most significant black bear color phases. It's not uncommon to see all color phases (brown, cinnamon, chocolate and blonde) throughout your bear hunt. During your bear hunt you will be placed over an active bear bait site, with a little patience and some determination you will be able to harvest a trophy of a lifetime.
