5 Day Trophy Archery Whitetail Hunt for one hunter as well as an available upgrade to include Waterfowl Hunt with Garrett’s Waterfowl and Whitetail Outfitters in Manitoba, Canada.  This province is recognized for its “Manitoba Monster Whitetails” and especially this area of the “Interlake” region. Currently 3 out of the top 10 Typical Deer in Manitoba come from this area including the “Elskamp Buck” which is our number one whitetail scoring over 198 Net typical points. The current number 3 Non-typical is from this area as well scoring a whopping 248 Boone and Crockett points.  Incredible genetics, abundant food and cover combined with lower than normal “hunting pressure” allow these animals to flourish and reach enormous size.

The Archery Hunts we provide run from the end of August into the early part of November. There is next to no hunting pressure during this time and the animals are roaming freely and undisturbed!  Archery hunters have their choice of tree stands, ground blind or elevated tripod stands. These are located differently every year based on pre-season scouting, trail cam pictures and changes in feeding and bedding habits. Transportation is provided by truck and/or atv as required.    Hunt is good for 2017 or 2018 season. Upgrade to include Waterfowl is available.

A rustic cabin is provided for your stay, as well as all food, and transportation during the hunt via truck, ATV or boat as applicable.  As a bonus, Jason is throwing in a day of waterfowl hunting if you tag out early or just want to shoot some ducks.  This portion of the “Interlake” is renowned for the Delta Marsh (home of the Delta Waterfowl Research Station), Shoal Lakes, Oak Hammock Marsh (home of Ducks Unlimited Canada Headquarters) and Grants Lake Refuge, each being located  within minutes of our location.  Many thanks to Jason Garrett for this awesome donation!
