No experience but know a few guys who have hunted with mikes outfitting and have had great success. They come highly recommended on bowsite

I'm gonna throw Blaine from Big Tine Adventures. I have not hunted with him, don't know him personally. I do follow him on Instagram and he's a killer. Lots of repeat clients.

I am going to Eagle Eye up there in a couple of weeks. It is associated with Mike’s and one of his main fall guides runs the outfit. It was closed after Covid and just reopened so hoping there are a lot of older age class bears since there been less hunting for a few years.

Gerard is a great guy!

I've hunted with him several times at Mike's.

You can shoot two bears in all the zones here in Alberta. (At least as a resident) Pretty sure that non-resident is the same.

You should google his name and see how many poaching charges come associated with him. If you like to be guided by a poacher then yup go for it

Hunted with McKinnon & CO over memorial week. Lots of bears and great lodge/accommodations. They seem to have their system down. PM with any questions.

Our trip with East to West outfitting, formerly Eagle Eye in Alberta was great…. Good enough that I haven’t put anything out there until I got my booking next year confirmed!

My 2024 bear was 6’10” square, 330 lbs, and a P&Y 18-6/8” skull. It was the smallest bear taken in our camp. It is a trophy bear hunt, so they are focused on big bears and discourage the taking of small or younger bears.
