Overall Impression: A very good hunt for the price

Hello Fellow Hunters: I have just returned from a five and a half day hunt with Stony Ridge Outfitters in the Swan River area of Manitoba. The hunt costs 2000 bucks and license, lunches, motel room, are supplied. The hunt is fully guided with quads being used to take you to your stand out in the bush. The land is public ground with almost no hunting pressure on it. Three of us went with one hundred percent shot opportunity. My friend took a very nice eight pointer after missing a much bigger deer. I tagged out first day with a 10 pointer that scored 142. I saw a bigger buck, but could not get a shot at it. I saw three bucks before I shot mine. The deer came to rattling and grunt calls, as did the eight pointer my buddy shot. My other hunting companion had hunted here before and had taken a super nice buck so he held out to the last minute and missed a shot at what he said was a shooter. So two of us brought home trophies. We all saw some very big deer. I also missed a chance at a huge wolf. The hotel room is included in the package price and was clean, neat, and had maid service everyday. Lunches provided by the outfitter were very good. Breakfast and dinner are on your own. There are good places to eat in the town of Swan River at reasonable prices. The only fault I could find with the place is that the stands were crude and could be better and the outfitter has promised to work on that for future hunts. Norm Bruce only takes 4 hunters per week so you experience personal service on a level most outfitters do not provide. Contact Norm and he will do his utmost to put you on one of those Canadian Giants!
