Bear Hunt Details

Cost of the Bear Hunt: $1,500 US, plus licenses and taxes extra. Deposit is $400 US.

Season: Black Bear Hunting Season usually starts August 15 or 16.

2021 Season: We had a 100% success rate in 2021 with all ten hunters harvesting bears.

CHECK-IN / CHECK-OUT TIME: Check-in will be on Saturday after 2:00pm. Check-out will be Friday before 10:00am.

The bear hunt package includes a cabin and active baits. Baiting starts well in advance of your arrival. We take a limited number of hunters and guarantee active baits. Some of these baits border the Chapleau game preserve. We have baits for archery, primitive weapons and rifles.

You will have the use of a tree stand or ground blind as well as one on one orientation of the area. We will help you with the retrieval and skinning of your bear. There is a freezer available for the freezing of your meat. We will make every effort to meet your needs.
