Hello my name is Justin Holder and this was my first ever hunt with a fully guided service. I didn't know what to expect, I was so overwhelmed with the professionalism of the entire camp and hunt. Stacy and Brandi fed us like kings. Pat and Brian took care of our group as if we were family. We had so many things to do it was amazing. There were so many Bears and the SIZE of the them was outstanding! I was able to harvest two that were over 18". I am already looking forward to booking with them again, and again. There is not one thing anyone could ask for to make this more exciting or more memorable with The Garrett Brothers!!!! I would like to Thank the Garrett's, the Guides, and Woody for making this the most fun and memorable hunt of a lifetime!!! If you want that hunt of a lifetime you need to book with "The Garrett Brothers" TODAY!!!

My wife and I decided for our honeymoon instead of doing the usual Mexico trip we wanted to do something different. We found out about Garrett Brothers Outfitting and decided we wanted to book a hunt with them. We are both big hunters but have only hunted close to home so this was a new experience for us. The guides, food, atmosphere and campground was far past our expectations! We made a lot of lifetime friends and it was not easy to leave. The hunting was awesome. There's no buttering up what Pat and Brian say about this hunt. We saw together over 20 quality bears. Both my wife and I took our time and left with a good bear each that we shot with our bows. If anyone is looking for a good, reasonable priced hunt that is a hunt and vacation all in one then this hunt will not be a disappointment, I promise! Thank you Garrett Brothers and friends!

The Garrett family is a top notch outfitter. I have hunted spring black bear in almost every province in Canada, with many different outfitters and Garrett Bros. is far and away the Cadillac of spring bear hunts. You will see allot of quality bears ( I saw 24 bears in 6 nights ) and the accommodations / food are second to none. These folks treat you like family and work hard to see to it you have a great hunt. I have already booked my spots for next year and can't wait. Thanks, Pat, Brian, Stacey, Brandi and the rest of the gang.

Anxiety still clutched me as I approached the desk at the Nomad Inn in Fort McMurray Alberta. I was going on my second Alberta black bear hunt. Midway in the arrangements, the original outfitter had sold the business. He assured me that the Garrett Brothers would be no decrease in the first rate experience I had had with them. In speaking with and emailing Pat Garrett, it seemed that was true. But... my last email had been returned as "service interrupted". I was here on the faith that it was due to his being in bear camp away from the computer. ... Read the full story here:

Great hunt. Better that expected. Guides are all very experienced. I never saw so many bears outside of a zoo! LeeAnn is a great cook. I’ll go anywhere there’s good food.

We hunted with Garrett brothers in May 2006.My hunting group included my wife and 12 year old son. The personal attention given us and the other hunters on the trip was second to none. The cabins were very comfortable and private. The food was fantastic (try the apple crisp!).Our first night hunting my son and I had 7 bears come in. I harvested two large bears, my wife tagged her first big game animal and my son brought home memories that you just can’t put a price on. I can’t say enough about the quality of the hunting and the experience of the people involved on our hunt. First class all the way

I don't know how you could make the accommodations any better, they were fantastic. I think I might have put on some weight while I was there, the cooking was so good.  I was concerned with not having anything to do during the day until we got into our stands but the days went by so fast we did not have any problem keeping busy.  It seemed like there was a bear always at the stands.  The stories each night were filled with exciting bear situations. I am coming back next year and bringing my Dad, it will be the answer to his dream hunt of a life time. Thanks for a Fantastic Hunt

The fly in camp was the best bear hunt I have ever been on, my dad and i both shot great bears and we will deffintly be back to this extremely remote and fun filled family run camp for sure. The food,accomadations and equipment were top notch and the way we were treated was like we never left our familys. Thanks again Garretts.

The quality of the bears is excellent. The amount of bears is amazing! I didn’t hesitate to book for my son and I to return in 2007. I was able to harvest two beautiful bears in three days, add in the excellent accommodations and the friendliness of the entire staff and this is an unbelievable experience.

You all made me feel like family from the time I arrived. Also would like to thank my guide, Aaron, for a job well done.  I was very pleased with the two bear that I got.  The quality and of quantity of bear, guiding and meals (cooking) was way above my expectations and would most certainly recommend your outfitting service to anyone.

Garrett Bros. Fly – In Bear Camp was great from start to finish. This is a brand new family run camp, which provides good food, hot showers; excellent tent accommodations and most importantly plenty of bears! I would recommend this hunt to anyone looking for a 1st class Canadian Black Bear hunt.
