Once you arrive in camp on Sunday, we'll issue your hunting license after you're settled in. After dinner we'll go to the shooting range to check firearms. Bowhunters are welcome to keep their shooting eye sharp at our archery range on a life-size bear.
You'll be hunting our allocation of 1,400 square miles of pure remote bear habitat accessible by ATV, Argo and boat.
Monday: Starts like most any day, where our cabin opens for coffee at 8:00am and breakfast served approx. 8:20. Around 9:00 you'll hop in the truck or boat with your guide and head out checking and replenishing that day's run of bait sites. You'll arrive back at camp near 1:00pm to check the SD cards retrieved from the trail cameras, on the computer and formulate a plan for the evening's hunt. Dinner is served at 2:00pm. We find this works best with our guests, considering you're on stand for 5-6 hours. Once on stand, we'll check on most of our hunters about an hour before dark, watching for the signaling device we'll give you. If we see your signal, we'll go in and track your bear, shake your hand and take pictures of you with your trophy. Then load it up and get out of the bush and check on the other hunters. Once back at camp, there's stories of the evening's hunt to share and bears to admire. Jeannine will have a hot lunch waiting on your arrival back at camp.
Tuesday and most every other day in the week, coffee and breakfast, then more picture taking and skinning your trophy and preparing the meat and hide for freezing. Once done, we're off to check baits, replenish and prepare to hunt again.
Saturday morning, it's farewells and hugs after breakfast and departure.
