NORTHERN BLACK BEAR
This bear hunt is in Northern Saskatchewan Bear Country and is a true northern experience, not just a bear hunt. These northern bears for the most part, are not overly scared of humans, so close contact is a definite possibility and we have plenty of stories to share (this hunt may not be for everyone). For the most part, no one hunts these bears so mature bears with big heads are very common and the highly sought after blonde/cinnamon color phase is also common in this area. We like to stalk the baits and hunt from the ground for that extra rush but we have tree stands out as well. You are also allowed to fish on your own (with a Sask. Fishing license) in one of the many lakes or rivers in the area but we are not licensed to guide fishermen.
This bear territory was new to Truly Canadian Outdoors in 2015 and in that short time, we have had tremendous success with several trophy bears going down. We have several well established bait sites, but continue to scout and look for new spots to hunt all the time. Because of the huge hunting area (best guess over 15,000 Sq. Miles), this hunt is operated out of a tent camp facility so that it can be moved around when needed.
2019 camp will be located 130km north of Pinehouse Lake, Sask., roughly a 7 hour drive from Saskatoon. The tent camp set up will be made as comfortable as possible. Clients are responsible to bring and cook their own food and clean up after themselves and everyone is asked to help out around camp a little with daily chores (fire wood, hauling water etc.). There is a cooking/eating/shower shack with a partial wood frame and wood stove and it is recommended to bring either food for the BBQ or open fire (if allowed), something that can be heated up or something that can be fried/boiled, as there will be no oven. There will be pots and pans, plates and utensils but we recommend bringing paper plates to cut down on the clean up. We have large tents, with cots and propane heaters.
2019 Dates-Weeks of May 27, June 3 and June 10. These are 5 day hunts (usually Mon-Fri). Hunting license is $315.00 CAD and will be purchased by Credit Card roughly 1 month before the hunting season starts and will be waiting for you at camp upon arrival. Fishing licence is optional ($100.00 CAD) but we are not able to guide fishermen. You are responsible to get to the camp yourself. Once at camp all travel to and from hunt sites is included, as well as preparation of your trophy for the trip home (not taxidermy).
