The vast area of the rugged country, which is believed to be home to two young Canadian murder suspects, is dangerous, difficult to navigate, and full of swamps, bugs, and abandoned huts.
Kam McLeod (19) and Bryer Schmegelsky (18) have been on the run since July 15 when they are accused of killing Lucas Fowler (24) and Chynna Deese (23) in British Columbia.
Since then, they have moved east and travel almost half the width of Canada to the Province of Manitoba.
They were seen twice in the extremely remote town of Gillam earlier this week and have since gone down and tossed the car they were traveling overboard.
Gillam has only 1,265 inhabitants, who are mainly made up of employees of a local dam and their families. There is only one road leading in and the nearest town is 35 miles away.
The police are now preparing to go door to door asking residents for information.

"They may have changed their looks … it is important that all Canadians remain vigilant," said corporal Julie Courchaine.
There are major police efforts to find them, but with thousands of miles of forest, swamp and baron lands to comb, it remains to be seen when the couple will be found.

Manitoba's northwest pocket, where it is said to be, is a rugged landscape.
There is only one street in and out of town that is now cordoned off with police checkpoints.
The boys are not believed to have stolen another car, making the police believe that they are walking.
It is unclear what stocks they may have and where they seek protection.
Residents who say the city is surrounded by abandoned huts are now afraid of breaking into one of these houses, if not their own houses.
The police search all abandoned buildings they come across. Cpl. Cochraine said the country was "dense" and "hard" even for the officers.
However, there is not much protection beyond the city.
"There isn't a lot of protection out there. You could choose a direction and go in and hope to find something," said Gillam's deputy mayor, John MacDonald, adding, "It can be pretty difficult out there without a good one Survival supply.
"None of us would want to be put in this situation."

"It happens all the time when police officers are in a security container and the suspects were only a few meters away from them at the end of the day and they just couldn't see it," he said.
"When they see movement, when an infrared from the air sees a source of heat that looks really good and is not an animal … footprints or clothes or garbage," Jack Schonely, a former police officer, told CBC.

On Thursday, a spokeswoman for the troop said it had brought help from other departments in western Canada and used all the necessary means to find the boys.
Bryer's father Alan said that he believes that the police are shooting them and that they want to "go out in a glory of glory".
He also said how his son likes to play military-style strategy-based video games.
However, the teenager's mother gave him an emotional plea on Thursday and asked him to report.
What may have driven them to murder remains a mystery.
The two teenagers, who are childhood friends, left Vancouver Island in search of better jobs, they told their parents.
How they encountered their alleged victims or even acquired the weapons they would have needed to kill them is unknown.
Gillam residents were warned not to approach any of the boys when they saw them.
They are considered dangerous and are probably still armed.
Everyone who saw the couple was told to call 911 or the local police.
