Spring Bear Hunt
About the Spring Hunt
Our bear baiting begins the first week of May and by the time our hunt starts on May 9 the Bears will be well accustomed to the baits and baiting activity. We will have trail cam photos for you to see the activity at your bait. All baits have stands and / or ground blinds in place or are ready for your own. We set each of our baits as if we were hunting it ourselves.
I will initially take you to your bait area, after which, transportation to and from the bait is your responsibility (I can arrange to get you to and from your baits if you have no means yourself. We can discuss). You are welcome to bring your own ATV for our ATV access baits. As well we have hundreds of miles of ATV trail available to ride when you’re not hunting.
We run a focused hunt, accepting a maximum of 6 hunters per week. I will guide you to baited areas (baited area assigned based on your available transportation, physical needs or Firearm selection); provide assistance with retrieval of downed animal and a clean, open space for Skinning. I will assist you in the gutting and skinning of your bear. If you choose not to help, there will be a charge of $75.00 CDN. Freezer service is provided on site. We can arrange for your bear to be butchered, frozen and prepared for your trip home.
The fur on a spring black bear is far superior to that of a fall bear. And, it is said the meat is much better as well? I anticipate a huge interest in the spring hunt from our US friends, especially with the difference in value of the US vs. CD dollar.
It is strongly recommended you book early to reserve your spot.
Spring black bear hunting at Trapper Mick’s is five weeks, from May 9 to June 15, 2020. The spring bear hunting season starts May 1st. But, as in most years, bears are just out of their den and are eating sparsely for the first couple of weeks. Fishing season for Walleye and Northern Pike open May 16, 2020,
