Eastern Ridge Adventures
Our Fully Guided Fall Black Bear Hunts Include:
Game Monitoring:  Here at Eastern Ridge we don't keep secrets or deceive our hunters.  We run game cameras on every bait
site and welcome our guests to help check baits and pictures with us.  That's right, our hunters help check, review, and choose
where they hunt.  We have over 110 bait sites-  
That's a lot of options!!

Lodging:  Our guests enjoy lakeside lodging on crystal clear Bog or Fulton lakes for 7 nights.  All your bed and bathroom linens
are provided.  Every cottage has electricity, a full kitchen, living room, and a full bathroom with hot shower.  Please visit our
lodging page to view the cottages and other amenities available.

Meals:  We provide three meals per day in our Log Cabin Lodge.  Our cooks prepare homemade meals served buffet style.  For
our guests that wish to provide their own meals every cabin has a full kitchen with all cooking and eating utensils provided.

Your Guide:  Your guide transports you to the hunting grounds each day and guides you into your stand.  He will discuss bear
movement for the area and proceed to replenish your bait site as you sneak into your tree stand.  Each evening your guide will
return and assist you out of the woods.

Bear Recovery and Care:  We provide tracking and recovery, game care, game transportation and registration, skinning, and
quartering.  We will help you arrange butchering services if desired.  We own bear hounds for tracking wounded bear which
significantly increases recovery percentages.

We DO NOT leave hunters in the woods until late hours in the night.  ALL hunters are assisted out of the woods prior to
recovering any bears after dark.  Client safety and success are our First Priorities!

Hide and Meat Care:  To ensure proper and safe care of your harvested bear we have our own walk in cooler and freezers.  This
keeps your bear at the correct temperatures to prevent hair slippage of the hide prior to taxidermy and your bear meat from

Our Commitment To You:  We are committed to our guests success.  We enjoy the hunt as much as you do and will do
everything possible to help you be successful.  We work very hard and have ALL our bear sites active and ready for our guests
arrival.  Talk to some of our past hunters and learn of our great reputation and success!!

Non-hunting Guests and Youth Hunters:  If you wish to bring non-hunting guests or youth hunters please call us to discuss your
needs.  We will be happy to quote you a price!
