Hunting

Black Bear Hunting

We pride ourselves on our high success rate and feel it is due to both our regimented annual baiting patterns – starting in the spring and continuing through the fall, Along with our management of the resource, only taking a limited number of hunters each season allowing our bear population to increase each year. We only take a maximum of 6 hunters per week, for 4 weeks so that we manage a successful bear hunt from year to year.

After checking in and obtaining your hunting license, you will attend our Saturday evening hunter orientation meeting, where you’ll meet your hosts, management team and guides. You’ll learn how we operate our hunt and together choose a hunt location. We’ll then go over the scenarios and hunting regulations to prepare for the next day’s hunt.

You will be guided to your stand daily, guaranteeing that you will be hunting over an active bait that we have been baiting for 6 – 8 weeks prior to your arrival.

Our new stationary ladder stands are constructed of lumber and very secure. Most stands are within 20 minutes from the Lodge, so you don’t have to spend hours travelling to and from your stand each day. We have several baits accessible by 2 wheel drive vehicles and some baits are accessible by ATV only, so bringing your ATV’s is a great asset to your wilderness experience! Or you can rent one of our ATVs

When it is time to hunt you follow your guide to your stand who will set up your bait. We do not want you to add any extra scent or change our feeding habits due to the fact that this could shut the bait down. Bears become comfortable with OUR scent … but your new human scent at their dinner table will make the bears coming to that bait very hesitant to come back.

We currently have updated our baiting sites with newly constructed wooden stands. We have 32 stands in place.

Moose Hunting

With your 2 person hunt package, you will receive 1 Bull Moose Tag and 1 Calf Moose Tag.

The adult moose can weigh up to 1000 lbs, making this a very exciting rifle hunt! Up close and personal is a heart pumping experience you will receive while hunting these magnificent animals while they are in full rut!

Following our instructions will help make this an exciting and successful Fall hunt. We begin scouting mid summer, always following the moose in their routines. With the information we gather, we choose and suggest the best locations to increase your success.

Because of the amount of meat that comes from one of these animals, most people choose to hunt in a group. Hunting in a group will also increase your chances of success.

For this reason, we have included very reasonably extra hunter prices which will bring the cost of your group’s total to a very reasonable rate.

Grouse Hunting

Literally hundreds of miles of unused and overgrown logging roads wind their way throughout our area, making it one of the best grouse hunting areas anywhere. Our forest consisting of Aspen, Spruce and Birch, is a prime natural habitat for grouse, producing our large population. Ruffed and Spruce Grouse are abundant throughout our area, so there is no need for you to hunt the same area as someone else.

An ATV can get you deep into the forest quicker but they are not necessary as you can use any vehicle to take you to your hunting area.

Upon arrival, getting settled in, obtaining your hunting license and area map, our Guide will give you a comprehensive orientation to our area and explain the best way to hunt our grouse. Depending on your capabilities and vehicles to be used, our Guide will suggest the best hunting area for you. Grouse season begins the 15th of September until mid October. The best time of day to hunt is early morning and just before dusk – so there is plenty of time to wet a line and enjoy some great fall fishing too!

Our black bear season runs from August 20th – September 17th.
