If you are planning to bear hunt with us this year, below
is information that you need to know. We look forward to seeing you this fall!
- Our success rate is very high…..generally 80 – 100%.
- Please be sure to bring an expired hunting licence
with you, one that is valid for the State that you reside in,
and that I can keep. I need
to staple it to the licence I issue you as proof of previous hunting experience.
Don’t have one of those? Then
please bring along an existing one. It
involves more paperwork, but I can make it work with an affidavit.
- Please arrive well rested.
Traveling all night and then trying to hunt often times leads to tired
mistakes that destroy an entire site.
- Hunter orange (at the very least a vest and hat) must be
worn to and from the hunting stands. Once
there, it can be removed if you wish.
- It is no longer necessary to pre-approve your entry and
your weapon when crossing the border. I
phoned to inquire about pre-approval last year and the Customs Official at Fort
Frances told us that they no longer did pre-approvals as they have done in the
past. She said that their computers
are updated now and much faster and they can do it as you speak.
- the new procedure is to drive up
with your weapon cased, etc and when they ask about firearms, say “yes, you do
have with” and they will want to look at the weapon, and view serial numbers,
etc. If you have any information
about registration, etc you might bring it along.
- at this time they will also ask
for identification and when you produce it, they will run it, and they will be
looking for information such as, have you ever had any DUI’s, and if so
when and how many? Do you have a
felony record of violence, etc?
- depending on your answers, you could be denied entry.
- there are steps you can take to get around some of these situations, so
if it applies to you or to somebody in your hunting group, please call us on our
toll-free 1-877-222-3265 or e-mail us at our new address:
we can help to provide information that may help you to gain access to a bear
hunt with us up here in Canada. The
process takes time though, so please act now.
- We pre-bait extra sites in the off chance that they are
- Arrive with transportation suitable for traveling 15 to 30
miles on a gravel road.
- ATV’s are often times useful when traveling right to the
site and saves you walking that last 50 to 100 feet into the site.
