Growing up on a small farm in Southern Manitoba and being blessed with having thousands of acres of prime hunting land to hunt on, I (Darryl) have always been an avid outdoorsman and hunter. Starting my bear hunting (guiding) career over 25 years ago in Northern Manitoba working for another outfitter, I have always been passionate about this sport. Then, getting into the waterfowl approximate 20 years ago I realized the great opportunity that came along with this business. It's all about meeting great people (now great friends) and creating all the memories for both the clients and myself that resulted in DOA. I live where I grew up and know the area like the back of my hand. Our lodge is "smack in the middle" of some of the best bear hunting North America has to offer and our Saskatchewan waterfowl is second to none.
