Whiteshell Outfitters is a small business located in South-eastern Manitoba within the Whiteshell Provincial Park. Owner and operator Mike Adey has guided since 1981 and specializes in archery.
Mike prides himself on his ability to deliver you an all-inclusive (except alcohol) Whitetail Deer, Black Bear, or Timber Wolf hunt that leaves you begging for more.
Our goal is to put you where trophy Deer, Bear, and Wolf roam. All while making your wilderness stay in Manitoba enjoyable and memorable.
In the Whiteshell Provincial Park prairie meets lakes, rivers, swamps, rock ridges and forests. The vast terrain, numerous food sources, and low hunting pressure enable large bear, deer, and wolf to thrive. Our hunts are fair chase and the animals are free to travel in the one million acres we operate in. Not only are we located in the center of prime hunting grounds, we are situated in a region that is perfect for family trips.
I have hunted with Whiteshell Outfitters (Mike Aday) three times and each time I have had opportunities to take bear with my bow. I have enjoyed each of my trips and Mike really puts on a good camp (good food and accommodations) and he really makes the people comfortable with him and each other. The sleeping accommodations are in clean and well provisioned cabins. Coffee is always on and the food is hot and tasty.
We have access to fishing boats and stayed right on the lake so we could fish as the spirit moved us. When you are not fishing Mike makes an archery broadhead target available to the hunters to keep up practice. And did I mention the food, no chance of going hungry there!
Mike is all about the hunt and insuring that hunters get a chance to see animals. Mike is an archer so he knows what an archer is looking for in positioning. Mike places stands in the best position for archery but he also rifle hunts so he manages that as well. This past year (2013) my brother and I hunted with Mike. My brother is a gun hunter, so Mike made sure that he had stands that would work well for him.
Another thing that is sure to please the outdoors-person, is the trip to Crow Duck Lake. You take a road trip to a boat then a jeep trail to the lodge to get to your fishing boat. This lake is amazing, plenty of fish and action....I even catch fish there!
I have hunted bear with a couple other outfitters. They did a decent job but they did not compare to the camp that Mike runs. When it is all said and done, my next bear trip will be with Mike.
Room Tip: You maybe sharing a room with someone, so bring some ear plugs in case they snore!
