Welcome to PocketLake Outfitters

My name is Earle Krunek and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and Pocketlake Outfitters.

By providing you with some details I hope to give you confidence in booking your next hunting adventure with Pocketlake Outfitters in McCreary Manitoba.

McCreary Manitoba is located at the eastern entrance to Riding Mountain National Park about 150 miles northwest of Winnipeg. About 50% of the surrounding area has been cleared for farming.

The uncleared bush is very thick and wet in many places providing excellent wildlife habitats. There is no shortage of areas to hunt for trophy animals, and quality guides are readily available to ensure your success and safety. Countless hours are spent walking through the bush, baiting and scouting animals or dealing with land owners.

Manitoba has 50% of colour phase bears (Blonde, Brown and Cinnamon.)

I am a full time outfitter and taxidermist. I have hunted for 40 years and been guiding for about 20 years. In my experience, I have come to realize bigger is not always better, so we currently run a smaller operation leaving plenty of room for hunters to stretch out. I love what I do and my clients leave as friends. I like to provide that personal touch and attention that you will require when hunting trophy animals. It's the only way I know how to be a successful outfitter. I believe in quality and ethnical hunts, and I strive to provide you with the best hunting adventure possible.

Over the years I have come to believe in two things. Quality not quantity and You get what you pay for.

You can be sure that if you book a hunt with Roxane and I, we will give you 110% to make your hunt memorable.

Roxane is also an active member of our team who provides 3 home cooked meals a day, helps bait, skinning the trophies, and she also looks after all the sewing for our fur side of the business. Roxane will make sure you never leave hungry and that there is always an abundance of food on the table. BIG meals and baked goods are a regular part of your hunt.

Our objectives are as follows:

  • To provide a safe and comfortable hunt.
  • To exceed your needs and expectations
  • To provide a fun and productive hunt
  • To customize hunts to meet individual need you may have as a hunter.
We strive to provide you with the best hunting adventure possible.

The greatest compliments our guests can give us are returning for another trip. Join us for your next hunting adventure.
