Hunting License/Permit: Our staff will collect the needed information and $300 fee from you
and complete all paperwork with the Tribal Warden Service. Your license will be waiting for you
when you arrive.
Lodging: Our guests enjoy lakeside lodging for 7 nights during their stay. All your bed and
bathroom linens are provided. Every cottage has a full kitchen so preparing and eating your own
meals is easy. Grocery stores are located within 5-12 miles of each of our camps.
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, portable insulated box, and freezers. This keeps your bear at the correct
temperatures to prevent hair slippage on 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!!
