Saskatchewan Black Bear Hunt

Hunt Huge Black Bears in the Spring from baited stands.

Hunt Black Bears in Saskatchewan

Our outfitter has been operating for over 35 years. They are in a one (1) bear per each license area. It is estimated to have between 60-70 thousand black bear and we hunt in Northwest Saskatchewan. The area is just north of the Meadow Lake Air Weapons Range, which is a 1700 square mile game preserve with no hunting. By hunting the area north of the Weapons Range, we are assured of a great number of mature bears. The average bear in Saskatchewan is between 6-6 ½ feet nose to tail. Our average is between 6 ½ - over 7 feet nose to tail. This is really trophy hunting!  

Our established baits have produced our biggest bears this year. With expansion in the logging and oil industries we will again have more new areas to hunt. At present we are tending over 150 miles of baited roads and trails. 

Camp Facilities

Our camp consists of several wood cabins; all having both wooden floors and bunks. There is a maximum of seven per cabin. The cook area is a 16’x 26’ log cabin, which is on a cement floor. All the cabins have electric heaters in them. These cabins are very spacious and, in bad weather, you are high and dry off the ground. There are electric lights in each cabin and we have water pressure for hot showers. Also included in camp is a very luxurious building built which houses a hot sauna and showers.

We try to have no more than 8-10 hunters in camp, but will accommodate special requests. We would be glad to add an extra hunter. We provide a very comfortable rustic wilderness camp. 

A Winning
Bait Program

The bait we use is the very best. Trophy size bear love to keep coming back to this smorgasborg. We have three (3) baits for each hunter and permanent stands. We use up to 40,000 lbs of bait per year. We fed these bears well and it pays off for our hunters. We have over 25 bait sites. In a week’s hunt, past hunters have seen well over 10 bears in a single sitting. Some nights there were over 100 different bears seen in a single afternoon.

With Style

The hunting style is over baits and for the archery, rifle, or black powder. This method has proven successful.

Most of the archery stands are between 10-20 yards. Full camouflage is required for the archery hunters. We are not an archery only outfit but we meet all the needs of archery hunters. We provide targets to keep you ‘sighted in’. The archery bear hunter has a good chance of getting a Pope & Young bear because our average size is 6 ½ - over 7 feet nose to tail.  NOTE: Rifle hunters must wear Orange/Red hat and Vest.

Also Available

You can combine a Fishing Expedition with your bear hunt or you can do 3-days of just fishing.

Wounded Bear Policy

Great Weather;
However, Consider This

In May and June weather is generally warm during the day and quite cool at night. Bring a medium to heavy sleeping bag and pillow. A good warm jacket is necessary for the evening stands and rain gear is also a good idea as it is “springtime” in Saskatchewan.
