Here at Sleeve Lake Outfitters we make it our goal to ensure that our guests have the best hunts possible, we all know the saying “If you’re not happy we’re not happy” well in this case that statement could not be more true. We’re located in the heart of Interlake region of Central Manitoba, Canada which is known very well for producing world class bruins as well as some of the best waterfowl hunting Manitoba has to offer. Presently, the Manitoba black bear population is estimated at 25,000-30,000 bears with the largest concentration in Interlake area.
WHat our clients have to say
We had yet another incredible trip to Sleeve Lake Outfitters. This was my sixth trip and it did not disappoint. Evan and his team works their tails off to put you on birds. I’ve been to numerous outfits that simply don’t compare in value or quality. This trip is about hunting….not sitting around a lodge. Most outfits give you a morning hunt in a predetermined blind and that’s it. Not at SLO. They take you where the birds are…morning and evening…not where they might be in the absolutely perfect situation. The result is lots of shooting opportunities.
And the accommodations are incredibly comfortable. The home cooked food is amazing. Homemade soups, deserts, and meals each day are the perfect match for this whole experience.
This is a family business and by the time you leave, you feel like part of the family.
As long as Canada and Evan will have us, we plan on keeping this as an annual trip.
Evan and Dave have a fantastic bear camp. I can’t say enough of the time and effort they put into their operation. They manage their area for trophy animals by only taking a limited number during the spring and fall season. I have been to bear camps where the outfitter runs as many people through the camp as they can. This obviously results in highly pressured baits and smaller bears. Sleeve Lake is the exact opposite. This is a true, trophy bear hunt. You will see plenty of bears with the opportunity of harvesting a trophy. The baits are remote and have a lot of activity. Each bait does have trail cams on them. If a big bear is not hitting a bait, they will move you to one that is being hit. Evan and Dave a solid game plan for each hunter. Without a doubt, they want you to harvest a trophy bear. The food and accommodations are top notch. You will not go hungry. I put on 3lbs my last trip! The rooms are comfortable and clean. More importantly, they will make you feel welcome and a part of their family. I have taken two great bears with Sleeve Lake. I can’t wait to return. If you are looking for an honest, trophy bear hunt with a hardworking outfitter, Sleeve Lake should be your choice. Shane Grade
I started waterfowling in Cananda back in 2001. After numerous outfitters in different provinces I finally met Evan with Sleeve Lake Outfitter October of 2012. I can honestly say that no guide service has worked harder to put our group on birds than these guys. Since our first trip with Sleeve Lake we have not looked for another place to try. The hospitality is second to none and the food is fantastic…you will not go to bed hungry. For nearly a decade we have enjoyed our experience with Evan and plan to continue heading north every early October to start the season off right. If you like shooting ducks and greater Canadas, this is the place for you….but you can’t have our spot!
