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 !

Catch a special spring bear show, Manitoba Bruins, with Joe Thomas and Excalibur’s Outdoors America this week, 8/7/2017-8/13.
It was filmed just this last June. It was Joe’s fourth hunt with us and his second spring bear hunt. On his first, Joe took a nice bear and his son took an absolute monster. 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.
We still have some limited availability on 2017 hunts. Spring bear June 9-16 has 4 spots available. Caribou Sept. 9-16 (2), 16-23 and 23-30. Moose, Sept. 16-23 (1) and Sept. 30-Oct. 7. If you are interested, we have some special pricing on these available.

Everything from tackle companies to the experts will be onhand. Lefty Kreh, Bob Clouser, Ed Jaworowski and a host of others will be onhand to share casting lessons, fly-tying, and other tips. Best of all, Beau has paired up the festival with many of the area’s finest microbreweries who will be onhand to share their craft and products. What a fun concept !
