Our spring bear show with Joe Thomas and Excalibur’s Outdoors America will airing again Sunday Oct. 22 on the Outdoor Channel at 1 PM EST. It really captures what makes our spring bear hunt so special ! A cut above the rest !
We just concluded an excellent moose season. Despite a slow to warm up rut, our guides put their expertise to work and put together another great year !
The final tally- 15 for 20, with 12 bulls 48” or better, 11 over 50”, 6 – 58” or bigger, and 2- 61”. That is not a misprint, not one but TWO 61″ moose. If you want big Canadian moose, Northern Manitoba and Gangler’s CSAH is where it is at. Check out this photo of Drake Litterall with his 61″ along with his dad Jeff’s 54″. Drake’s is a monster and Jeff’s has some of the largest paddles we have ever seen.
We are pleased to report our second week of caribou hunting was much like our first, very successful. The Kaminuriak herd returned to its normal patterns and our second week of hunters continued enjoyed another good hunt. 11 hunters filled 21 of the 22 licenses they held and we could have filled many more. #22 could have filled his second tag except for having two groups of nice bulls chased away by big wolves ! Quality was excellent with several exceptional trophies. Various reports indicate with the return to the traditional pattern, the Manitoba hunt has far exceeded the ones further North in Nunavut. Here are some photos of our week two results, enjoy !
We are pleased to report the ‘boo came back home and our first week hunters were 100% successful. MANY beautiful animals were taken and we can’t wait to see some of the scores. There are more animals turning up as we enter week 2 and with more reported on the way. We sure had one happy bunch of hunters leave today. We thank them for their support ! Lots of stories to share but in the meantime, enjoy this photo of the opening weeks success !
Unfortunately, our Florida office has sustained major water damage from Hurricane Irma. We have moved into another unit and at this time, the office number has been forwarded to the lodge but we expect that to be back in the office early next week. . Our local Ocala FL area has limited email, phone and cable service. For email communication, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although it is early, it appears our caribou herd is following their traditional migration patterns with animals now entering the province in consistent numbers. One of the first animals was a beauty taken by Ron Watson with guide/manager Ralph Lloyd. Five animals were taken yesterday in the first half day of hunting with some estimated in the mid 300s.
For those who have followed CSAH over the years, they know we are a special favorite of Ralph and Vicki Cianciarulo of Archer’s Choice. They and their crew have filmed with us over 9 times and they gave us the tag, ‘Manitoba Monsters.’ They have captured many milestones with us over the years- Vicki’s first B&C bear, Ralph’s first big cinnamon, amongst many others- but this week’s show was special as they chose to treat son RJ and make his first Northwoods experience a very special one with us. (we were honored) The shows are a two part series, if you have not had a chance to catch the first show, you still have an opportunity left !

We don’t want to spill the beans but 2017 did not disappoint. This episode really catches the epitome of what sets the CSAH spring bear hunt apart from all the rest. Check it out , air dates are–

A certain famous TV personality was washing her coffee cup off in the lake when she looked up and was startled by a big bear sitting in the camp boat looking at her just feet away. It was a foot race back to camp and fortunately, she is still here to film many more episodes. The bruin , which paced the camp back and forth for several minutes, was not quite so fortunate.
We had another one of our guide crews chased back to the Beaver while setting up boats by a MONSTER bear. One of the old guides said it was the biggest bear he had ever seen in his 65 years in the North.
Last night, one hunter had eight bears on his bait before he took the largest one.
So far we have 10 bears down and some real beauties including a blonde. We are adding them up but it looks like 2017 is going to be a Grand Slam season.
In the meantime, enjoy these photos of Joe Thomas as he joined us for his fourth film shoot and took a beauty that he figures will go over 20” plus some monster pike with guide Robert Merasty.
It is the best, and most unique, 2 for 1 trophy bear hunt in Canada.
We still have a few caribou hunts available, Sept. 16-23 and 23-30, and 3 moose hunts, Sept. 16-23 and Sept. 30-Oct. 7. Give us a call and you can still experience some of the most incredible fly-in trophy hunting in Northern Canada.
Now is the time to confirm your 2018 hunts with CSAH. Hunts are filling quickly.
