“A happy guest will come back again and again.” That is why we take great pride in professionally managing our twenty fly-in locations, providing modern comfortable cabins and well maintained equipment for our fisherman and hunters. Over the nearly three decades that our family business has been in operation, we are pleased to boast a high repeat customer base.


It is always our goal to maintain and improve our business. We are very excited to announce that in the fall of 2010, we acquired the outpost locations formerly operated as Thunderbird Outposts. These additional sites will increase the options we can now offer our guests. All our facilities are located within the boreal forest of northeastern Manitoba, including locations in three beautiful Provincial Parks: Atikaki, Nopiming, and Whiteshell.


There is an outdoor wilderness experience waiting for everyone! Our guests can choose the trip they prefer, from a full service American Plan Lodge, fully equipped outpost cabins, tent camps or boat caches. All locations are serviced by our air charter service, Adventure Air, located in Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba.


We want to express our sincere gratitude to all our guests who have come in the past and who we hope to see again soon. In addition, we look forward to welcoming all our new hunters and fishermen. We will do our utmost to continue providing everyone with a memorable wilderness experience in beautiful Manitoba.


Jackson’s Lodge and Outposts operate four boat caches in Whiteshell Provincial Park. For those who enjoy camping to the fullest, we service the following lakes in this way:

  • Echo Lake: productive walleye, northern pike and small mouth bass/ ten boats and motors
  • Forbes Lake: excellent lake trout fishing/ four boats and motors
  • Saddle Lake: healthy walleye, northerns and smallmouth bass/ six boats and motors
  • Side Saddle Lake: a private setting with big walleye and northern pike/ two boats and motors


Please note that we offer flexibility in the number of days you reserve at the boat caches from a one day to a seven day trip we can meet your camping needs. At our boat caches we provide the boat, motor, gas, paddles and life jackets, you will need to bring a tent and all your camping supplies.




Black Bears live primarily in forested areas and are very adapt at climbing trees. A Black Bear uses its front paws to wrap around the tree and then use?s the hind paw’s claws to dig into the tree. Black Bears are solitary animals except for a mother with cubs. The average lifespan of a black bear in the wild is 20 years.   


A Black Bears eyesight and hearing is about the same as human?s but their olfactory system is about a hundred times more sensitive that a human’s. Their sense of smell is so acute that they can locate their prey from miles (kilometres) away. They use their sense of smell to locate food and mates during the breeding season. Black Bears are classified as carnivores and do hunt other animals but for the most part their diet is comprised of plants like fruits, berries and nuts.




Females reach sexual maturity at three to four years of age and males a year or so later. Mating takes place in June, July, and August, and pairs may remain together for only a few hours or for several days. Pregnancy last s about 220 days, and the cubs are born in a maternity den in January and February. Litter size ranges from one to five, but two is the average. Cubs may be weaned at six to eight months, but they remain with their mothers for a year and a half. Consequently, the most often that female black bears can mate, unless they lose their cubs prematurely, is every two years.


The Hunt


Our spring and fall bear hunts are conducted from our full-service American Plan Lodge on Amphibian Lake. Similar to our moose hunts, we have exclusive hunting rights in this area covering a large portion of land. Our spring hunt runs from the last week of May until the second week of June. Our fall hunt begins the second week of August and continues until the end of September.


Although we have a lot of area, we only conduct minimal spring and fall hunts from this location; and this is why we can boast such high success rates with many bears in the six-foot range. Although many of our larger bears are black, there is also a good chance that you could harvest a colour phase bear.


Your hunt will take place over well-established bait sites that have been pre-baited well in advance of your hunt. Each site has a large comfortable permanent tree stand. All of our bear guides have years of experience and will work extremely hard to ensure that your hunt is successful. View our Bear Hunting Gallery




Moose are the largest member of the deer family and the tallest wild mammal in North America. They are noted for long legs, a short neck, broadly palmate antlers, a prehensile muzzle and a dewlap or bell on the throat.


General Info


Moose are non-migratory ruminants that can consume up to 60 pounds of browse per day. They also make use of seasonally available pond plants and are capable of feeding well below the surface of the water. Moose are excellent swimmers. They are generally solitary.




Each year, beginning in April, a bull moose grows a set of antlers. These continue to grow all summer, and in the early fall they shed the velvet. The breeding season extends from September through October. Bull moose in rut do not gather a harem but mark out a territory to which cows will be attracted.The bull stays with one cow for a week or so before breaking off to find another.


During the rut, cows protect their calves from the very aggressive rutting bulls. The gestation period is about 8 months. The first pregnancy most often results in a single calf. In subsequent pregnancies, the female generally gives birth to twins. At birth a calf will weigh 20-25 lbs (9-11 kg). After the mating season, the bulls start losing their antlers, and this is generally completed by late January.


The Hunt


The Canadian Moose that we hunt in northeastern Manitoba are the second largest moose found in North America. In all of the areas that we hunt you will not be competing with other hunters as we have two unique features:

  • These areas are only accessible by air.
  • We hold all the non-resident hunting rights in these areas.


Our many years of experience has shown that the most important aspect of a successful hunt is having an expert guide that knows how to handle any situation that may arise during your hunt. We can only describe our guides as Simply the best. It would be difficult to find an experience more thrilling than hunting a huge Canadian moose during the rut season. To be able to call an animal of that size, with a massive rack to within a few yards of you, is simply AWESOME!


All of our non-resident hunting is conducted from our amazing full-service lodge at Amphibian Lake or from Harrop Lake Lodge. At Amphibian Lake you have access to Little Amphibian Lake, Hangar Lake, as well as the Pigeon River with your own personal guide. In addition to a first-class hunt you will also get to enjoy all of the great walleye and northern pike fishing that you can handle. A hunt of a lifetime awaits you! View our Moose Hunting Gallery
