typical day bear hunting - Black bears are hunted from
tree-stands over baits in the late afternoon and evening (until
30 minutes after sunset). Hunters therefore have the option of
visiting sites with guides during the day or fishing for speckled
and lake trout in one of the reserved beautiful boreal lakes.
- All of our hunting sites have elevated tree-stands
14 feet high and placed approximately 20 meters from the bait.
This allows the hunter to be camouflaged from the bear yet offers
the hunter a clear shot at the bait area. All stands have cleared
trails to both the stand and the bait area which are accessed
on foot only. We pride ourselves on our clean sites (no animal
carcasses) and ask hunters to respect the environment.
- We use seal blood and meat to attract bears to the
hunting sites and feed them with human-grade cookies mixed with
molasses and honey. Bait is placed in 45 gallon drums in forest
openings. Guides begin baiting bears several weeks before hunters
arrive to attract as many bears as possible. Bait sites are then
regularly visited to check for bear sign and to make sure bears
do not run out of food.
do not use any farm animal by-products at bait sites because most
of our hunters consider bear meat a delicacy. We offer all of
our hunters the option of cleaning, packaging and freezing their
meat for transport home (for details see meat
