Review Information

Hunter: walter paul



Would Recommend: never

Overall Impression: dissapointing

Saw 3 bears in a whole week of hunting, 2 of the bears were about 70 pounds and the 3rd about 180 pounds. They said they thought there was a big winter kill, funny thing is everyone at the airports on the way home that were hunting with other outfitters all seemed to see alot of bears. There were supost to be tons of bears there and not only that but book bears and color phases. Out of our group of 6 a total of 6 bears were killed, 1 about 250 and the others about 150, many were first bears and no colored bears were sighted. The baiting was cheap, popcorn, gummy candy, meat scraps, and donuts. The only thing the bears seemed to want were the donuts. The were no beavers for bait as stated. Stands were nice, guides great, decent tents, and average food, just not many bears. The hunters in camp the week before us were also highly dissapointed and experienced the same success if thats want you want to call it. My opinion is that this outfit is over hunted and to cheap on the baiting. Right next to camp is where they stored the popcorn, candy and donuts, none of it was ever bothered. If there were many bears around they could never get away with this. If this had been the place i was at in saskatchewan last year that bait would have been strung out everywhere. Save your money and dont waste your time here.
