Northern Big Bear Outfitters Ltd.
Hunting is done over an active bait. Baits are set up to accommodate bow, muzzleloader, and rifle hunters. On average, over three-quarters of our clients are bow hunters each year.
Yes, our territory has black, cinnamon, and blonde bears (although blonde is much less common).
Saskatchewan law requires rifle hunters to wear red, blaze orange or yellow hunting uniforms. Camouflage uniforms are permitted when using primitive weapons.
For those fishing during their hunt, you will be given a chance to go out on Sunday upon arrival, and each morning. Monday is the first day of hunting. Your guide will typically take you out around 3pm each day, where you will be driven by truck and then by quad into your tree stand. Your guide will travel by quad back to your stand at last light to pick you up. However, clients are given a radio and can be picked up earlier if successful.
We have had 100% shot opportunity for our clients. We make every effort to ensure that you see many bears during your hunt. Each season we open up several new stands, since much of our area has never been hunted.
Guides will skin and prepare your trophy for travel. However, taxidermy of your Black Bear is available at your request by Orion Taxidermy, a local shop here in Saskatchewan. Owner and taxidermist, Ryan White, does excellent work -- his many awards are a testament to this fact. Please feel free to visit their website in advance, at http://www.orion-taxidermy.com
If you chose to take your skin home, we recommend that you contact your airline and ask about rules for transport.
