CSAH at Dallas Safari Club

Ganglers and CSAH will be exhibiting again at one of our favorite shows, the Dallas Safari Club Convention Jan. 4-7 at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas. Please stop by for a visit, we will be in booth 1451. We have lots of great things to share, including our incredible 2017 hunting and fishing results and our new Fall charter from Winnipeg.

Fall Hunts Now feature Charters from Winnipeg

In order to bring CSAH hunters the finest, most convenient hunt possible, Gangler’s CSAH has made the decision to run our charters from Winnipeg. Hunters will depart early morning of their hunt on Calm Air’s comfortable and fast ATR 42 and should be arriving at the lodge by 10 am that morning. Hunters will be out in the field that day ! Return to Winnipeg will be late afternoon the last day of their hunt. All hunters’ game and racks will travel back to Winnipeg with them.  This is the quickest, most convenient hunt transportation in Manitoba.  So remote so quickly and easily !

Not one but TWO 61″ Moose

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.

Second Week Caribou- Excellent

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 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 !

Hurricane Irma Update-FL Office

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 ganglersoffice@embarqmail.com.

First Caribou of the Year

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.
