Jesmer Outfitter was created and launched for the enjoyment of the general public in the fifties. It is also the story of a dreamer, who wanted “mankind” to have the benefit of this natural wilderness where trout fishing and moose hunting were of phenomenal grandeur. Alike the territory at Tiberiade Outfitters, it is a rather mountainous terrain also divided by a river. In fact, Blueberry River flows in an uproar from north to south and runs into Bazin River, which is the south boundary of Jesmer Outfitter. Oddly enough, on the west side of the river you can fish for speckled trout, while on the east side you cast mostly for northern pike and pretty large specimens too.
The density of the moose population is very high, obviously due to the outstanding wildlife habitat. Old-fashioned traditional hunting, on foot by way of trails, is also practised. Tree stands are built in strategic places and watercrafts are at the disposal of hunters.
The black bear, the wolf, the fox and the bobcat are frequently seen
Of course, the territory harbor many other species. Black bears, wolves, foxes and bobcats are often sighted, but contrary to popular belief, they do not expose themselves to humans long enough so that you get the chance to watch them. On the other hand, beavers, otters and American martens are aplenty throughout the territory, and comes sundown, if you keep very quiet you can observe their comings and goings.
Bird-watching buffs are well served as there are many bird species to be seen, none less interesting than the mighty “bald eagle” having its huge nest just a few kilometres to the south. It often flies high over the Jesmer territory. Different strains of ducks come to rest on our lakes for the hatching period and some great morning you wake up to the melancholic wail of the loons.
The Jesmer territory shelters an array of fascinating and uncommon wildlife. To stay there is to attune oneself to the pace of animal life.
