We operate our spring bear hunts out of our lodge. We use pickups and ATVs to transport hunters to the bait sites. We typically hunt in the evenings and stay out until dark. For those hunters that prefer to run bears with hounds, our hounds are happy to accommodate you. Patience is a must on this hunt. We do not use tree stands. We have most baits set up for 100-300 yard shots. Most of our hunters are rifle hunters but we can accommodate archery hunters. Just remember, the further you sit from the bait, the better your chances of a bear coming into the bait and not smelling or hearing you.
