WHAT'S YOUR SUCCESS RATE?
We've had some years when 100% of the hunters put bear in the cooler and other years when only 55% of the hunters were successful. In 2009, 75% of the hunters were successful with 90% seeing bears.

WHAT TIME OF DAY DO YOUR HUNTS START?
We like to have all hunters on site by 3:30PM. We've had a small number of bears taken in the morning, but we leave this to the hunters discretion.

WHAT TYPE OF WEAPON SHOULD I BRING?
We've had great success with either bow or rifle. Our most successful hunters at 100% have been with muzzleloaders.

DO YOU HAVE ANY COLOR PHASE BEARS?
Although most bears are black, we do have cinnamon and chocolate phase bears and usually get one a year.

HOW MUCH DID THE BIGGEST BEAR WEIGH?
The largest bear we've taken was 510#.

ARE MEALS AND LODGING INCLUDED?
An evening meal is included in the fully-guided and deluxe packages. And lodging is only included in the deluxe package.

SHOULD I BRING MY ATV?
If you have one available give us a call. We have a few remote baits that you may be interested in.

HOW DO I BOOK MY HUNT?
Call us, write us, or email us. We'd be glad to have you hunt with us. Remember a $200.00 deposit is required to guarantee your spot for the fall. Limited spots available.
