Bear Hunt

SuspensionSuspension Member Posts: 4,783
Just got back from my second bear hunt in Saskatchewan, Canada. There were 4 hunters in our camp and all four hunters brought home a bear. The outfitter I hunted with does a great job putting you on a good bear. If anyone is interested in a Saskatchewan bear hunt you can e-mail me at [email protected] and I will give you all the details.

    A supplier from work, also a friend, wants me to go on a black bear hunt to Canada with him and two other guys. $1800, you buy your own food, provide your own transportation to & from their base camp. Seems steep for a little ole black bear, what do you guys think? It's semi guided, meaning they drop you off in the morning and pick you up in the evening. Plus, he checked with the place and they said no archery, firearms only. I think I'm gonna pass on this one, but have any of you done much bear hunting?

    For that kind of money I could make two trips to Colorado for Elk. [:D]

    Never done it but I think I would pass. Archery maybe!! but not firearm

    Why do they make it taste so good and put it in them little bitty cans- Dad

    Last year was a first for bowhunting Black Bear. I didn't take one home but drew on a couple and saw many more. I only spot and stalk and I'm always on the ground. I had some exciting times last season.

    $1,800 sounds like way too much. After all that you gotta take care of transporting, butchering, and if its trophy material you have a taxidermist to deal with. Of course its in Alaska, the last great wilderness. I'll hunt bear there some day but it won't be with that type of price tag.

    That's how I felt to, thanks for confirming for me. I didn't want to think I was missing out.

    Hey Sus'...I just got an invite to hunt bear in Canada, 3rd week of August, a very similar situation to your offer...$1200. It's archery only I believe. What kind of challenge would if be to hunt bears over bait with a gun anyway???

    to tell ya the truth I love hunting but i dont think I could kill a bear i dont know why just dont think i could do it

    My old man's backhand used to land,
    Hard on the side of my head.
    I just learned to stay out of his way.
    There's been streetfights, blue lights,
    Long nights with the world sittin' on my chest:
    It just showed me how much I could take.
    Hard times, bad luck.
    Sometimes, life sucks.
    That's all right, I'm ok.
    It ain't nothin' but another day.

    That does seem a little steep to me. I did the archery one a few years ago in Cananda, only reason I went is was all paid for. Had a great time, shot a bear, smoked some cuban cigars, and enjoyed life. Don't know if i'd pay for a hunting trip there, I can find better ways to spend my money.

    Sounds too expensive. Maybe thats almost the same as a guaranteed kill.

    1-Powder
    2-Patch
    3-Ball
    4-Remove the Rod
    5-Do Not Forget the Cap.
