Guided Bear Hunts
I have over 30 years of bear guiding experience and am a Master bear outfitter in Cook County.
We hunt in zone 31, which is a limited quota zone and assures us good hunting. I have 6 licensed
guides working for me to make your hunt an enjoyable one. We have a very large range for our bait
stations, using the Sawbill, Caribou, Gunflint and Arrowhead trails as access to the Sawtooth Mountains
and Superior National Forest. I also have many private land tracts accesses available only to my hunters.
I tailor the hunt to all forms of hunting methods, archery and firearm and to each individual needs, from easy to remote access, ground blinds to tree stands We like to hunt remote, resulting in a 95% return rate on our hunters, some have hunted with us for over 20 years.
The guided hunts include breakfast at a local restaurant. We provide transportation to and from your hunting site. When you harvest a bear we do all the work from tracking, dressing, retrieving, skinning and processing. I can also register your bear for you at our camp, so all you have to do is pose for pictures.
Most of the hunters stay with me at camp or at local hotels. The hotels are at your own expense and they give my hunters a good deal on a room or cabin. The hunters that stay at camp bring a tent or Camper and stay in our yard. We provide a full bathroom and a shower, a great room for watching TV and a nightly campfire for relaxing and sharing stories. We also have wireless internet for your use. There are limited spots to camp in the yard on a first come first serve basis.
There are no hidden costs, our hunts are not for 5 or 7 days, they are for the whole bear season. I want your hunt to be a memorable one and when you come as a client you’ll leave as a friend. If you wound or miss a bear you are not done, we´ll move you to another station. The station that we pick for you will not have been hunted by another hunter that season. By having 6 licensed guides we run around 100 bait sites so we have plenty of sites to choose a good bear from. Our commitment is to our hunters and our returning hunters are a testament to us. The total cost for a guided hunt in 2013 $850.00 person. I can also put together different packages if you need. Give me a call for more information.
Bear Hunt Boat Hunts
These areas hold older and bigger bears and are only accessible by boat. The cost for the hunt is $1300.00 per person.
Bear Hunt Drop Camps
Hunt bear in the evening and fish for walleye, trout, northern pike and smallmouth bass during the day.
This hunt is for the do it yourself hunter. I will show you where to camp and where all your bait stations are.
We have been baiting these stations from the first day of baiting and these stations are guaranteed to be bear active.
I´ll have a stand or ground blind in place for you. You´ll be given maps of your area showing your camp
and bait stations and nearby lakes for fishing. I will help you fill out the proper paper work and make sure it is taken care of.
Drop camp area is easy to moderate access with a 2WD vehicle and short hikes to the bait stations. We do not use these areas for our guided hunts. We then set up a schedule for one of my guides or me to stop by camp and bring bait and do a bear check every day. When a bear is harvested I can register it at your camp for you.
You are responsible for getting to and from your bait stations tracking, dressing, skinning and processing your bear. There are no hidden fees, the cost of the hunt is $525.00 per hunter, and we provide all the bait.
We offer 10 areas for this style of hunt and the areas vary in size from 2 to 8 hunters. These hunts fill up fast, usually in the first couple of days after licenses have been issued so call early and reserve your area. Any other questions please feel free to call or email me.
I am opening up three areas for drop camp hunting that will require ATV´s. I will have the stands in place and supply all the bait. Because of the access and remoteness of these areas the ATV´s will be needed. The cost for these areas is $575.00 per hunter.
