Hunters arrive in camp on a Sunday and leave the following Sunday.
There is a full 6 days of hunting included. Camp is located about an hour and a half northwest of High Level, Alberta and accessible either by flying into Edmonton and driving, or catching a small flight and having us pick you up in High Level.
For the past 5 years our bears have averaged 69. There is no stretching and pulling, just simple measuring from our guides. We explain in detail how to judge the bears and either ourselves or our guides will sit with you if desired.
All trophies will be skinned and hides and skulls will be frozen in prepartation for transport.
The below picture shows our biggest bear in 2013. To top it off notice the color!
Each bait often has numerous bears at it and it has been said
it was our best night ever in a treestand...regardless of the animal being hunted. (Tim Brian with Archers Choice - see testimonials) You can expect to see anywhere from 1-10 bears a night and up towards 40 bears during the week.
There is never a dull moment with Big Bear Country. We encourage hunters to bring pepper spray as our bears are not pressured by humans and therefore are often curious about who you are and why you are there. We offer bears like nowhere else and memories to last a lifetime.
At Big Bear Country we believe that a baited hunt needs to have high quality and quantity of bait. We bait early and keep all baits going throughout the year, regardless if they are being hunted at the time. This results in established low pressure baits that the bears love coming in to.
We have two different hunt packages:
This hunt costs $4,500.00 USD and $2,000.00 USD for a second bear.
This hunt costs $6,500.00 USD and $ 2,000.00 USD for a second bear.
It includes a chance at a 7' bear guaranteed. If this does not happen, the hunter comes back the next year free (excluding flight costs and tags).
Both hunt prices include everything except transportation to High Level and gratuities.
All accomodations, GST, food etc. is included.
Also included with either hunt is a wolf/coyote tag.
