Web Managing Editor Shawn Skipper recaps the first few days of his Manitoba blast and cast.

Black Bears on the Winnipeg River

We cover our fair share of adventure hunts here at American Hunter, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a North American adventure that rates quite like an fly-in bear hunt. And that's exactly what Web Managing Editor Shawn Skipper had the opportunity to do over Memorial Day weekend. Armed with a Savage Arms Model 11 Hog Hunter and .338 Federal cartridges from Federal Premium's Fusion line, he set out to tag his first-ever bruin. Get an inside look at his hunt—which featured a little fishing, too—with this gallery.
