Saskatchewan River Tent Camp
This is an exciting
five-day remote tent
camp hunt on the Saskatchewan
River. Your trip originates out of The Pas, Manitoba where we pick you up.
From here we travel 30 miles up river (approx. one hour and thirty minutes) to
our tent camp site. Accommodations include sleeping in comfortable wood
stove heated tents, solar showers, out-house and cooking tent with outside
canopy (all meals are provided for you). You will be asked to provide your
own sleeping bag and towels. Hunters become very involved in this hunt
helping bait sites and checking out the area each day after breakfast.
Bears are very active during this early hunt on the river making this an
exhilarating, hands-on black bear hunt that you won't forget. We take four
to six hunters per week for two weeks in May.
River Hunt packages $2200.00/person
General Information ...
Each hunter is allowed to harvest one bear (no females accompanied by cubs) and
may use rifles of .270 caliber or larger, slug guns, muzzleloaders or bows at 50
lbs. or more. The weather is unpredictable during this time of year and we
recommend that everyone bring rain gear,
clothes and rubber boots as well as your personal gear which should include a
small flashlight. Hunter orange is not required and camouflage is
recommended. Hunters are asked to provide coolers for your bears cape &
meat and of course your weapon and ammunition. Bear tag, skinning, quartering, baiting, stands and freezing are included with
our hunts. Contact us for exact season dates and availability.
Bear Wounding Policy ...
If you wound a bear and it is not recovered you can continue
your hunt but you will remain at the same bait on which you wounded the bear.
Our baits usually have multiple bears on them, so remaining there is not all
bad. You may have the opportunity at getting a second shot at your wounded
bear as he may return to that bait. If you wound a second bear, sorry your
bear hunt is over.
After you have shot your bear, you and your guide will do a
preliminary search. If the bear is not found, you will return to camp with
the guide and at this time it will be decided whether to go back out that night
to search or go out early the next day. Remember, after you hit a bear you
must know where you saw him last. This makes the search safer and easier.
If we go back out to search, the guides will be the only ones carrying firearms
for safety purposes. When you shoot a bear we need a very important 2 lung
shot to kill him almost instantly.
