I recommend this outfitter

From owners Evan and Dave on through guide Cyril and hospitality providers Peter and wife Candace, this operation delivered on all expectations and then much more!

They knew what bears were hitting which baits and asked us what we were looking for. Multiple bears sighted by all hunters. 3 out of 4 of us took bears the first night, the fourth had several opportunities but elected to hunt more.

We cannot say enough good things about this operation. Evan stayed in touch with us throughout the year without us contacting him. He sent pictures frequently, and when fire near his hunting area threatened to be a problem he called to inform us and offered a full refund, move the hunt to the following year or let us still come. He assured us if we came we would have plenty of opportunity, and he was right! They were always fully transparent with all of us!

All hunters were treated equally, no favoritism. He had many more baits than hunters, we hunted fresh baits!!!

The four of us hunted bear in MB two years ago and enjoyed each other's company to want to hunt together again. We are glad we chose Sleeve Lake!

Brian brought his daughter McKena, and they hunted together the first night. McKena had first shot and killed a P&Y. Brian was letting her be successful before he would even hunt, so he asked Evan if they could start hunting Sunday and have one extra day. Evan not only agreed, but said all of us could hunt the extra day. And three of us took bears that first evening.

This is a BS sponsor. These are very down to earth people who are as honest as they come. They treat their clients with immense respect, and most importantly are fun to be guests of. We highly recommend Sleeve Lake!

Outfitter's Response

Frank was absolutely ecstatic about the trip leading up to it, we chatted numerous times and had a great game plan once he arrived. He killed a nice bear the very first night and we got to enjoy his great company for the next few days. See you next year Frank!
