Hunters arrive in camp on a Sunday and leave the following Sunday.
There is a full 6 days of hunting included. Camp is located about an hour and a half northwest of High Level, Alberta and accessible either by flying into Edmonton and driving, or catching a small flight and having us pick you up.
For the past 3 years our bears have averaged 68. In 2013 31% of our bears measured over 7 feet and 81% measured over 6 and a half feet. There is no stretching and pulling, just simple measuring from our guides. We explain in detail how to judge the bears and either ourselves or our guides will sit with you if desired.
The below picture shows our biggest bear in 2013. To top it off notice the color!
Each bait often has numerous bears at it and it has been said
it was our best night ever in a treestand...regardless of the animal being hunted. (Tim Brian with Archers Choice - see testimonials) You can expect to see anywhere from 1-10 bears a night and up towards 40 bears during the week.
There is never a dull moment with Big Bear Country. We encourage hunters to bring pepper spray as our bears are not pressured by humans and therefore are often curious about who you are and why you are there. We offer bears like nowhere else and memories to last a lifetime.
We have two different hunt packages:
This hunt costs $4,300.00 USD and $2,000.00 USD for a second bear.
This hunt costs $6,000.00 USD and $ 2,000.00 USD for a second bear.
It includes a chance at a 7' bear guaranteed. If this does not happen, the hunter comes back the next year free (excluding flight costs and tags).
Both hunt prices include everything except bear tags, licenses and transportation to High Level.
All accomodations, GST, food etc. is included.
Also included with either hunt is a wolf/coyote tag.
FIRST TIME LIMITED SPACE COMBO HUNT:
World Class Fishing combined with World Class Bear Hunting
Fly into our remote fishing lodge and combine your two favourite pastimes; hunting and fishing. Operating the rest of the year as a fishing lodge, we have opened up one week to accommodate hunters to offer an incredible experience. Bears have been hunted with friends for the last couple of years, producing 7 foot bears easily. These bears are completely un accessible by others as it is a fly in area only. Visit the Tapawingolodge website to understand the quality of fishing and then give us a call.
The price of the hunt is $6500.00 USD. This includes flights from High Level to camp, home cooked meals, lodging, wolf/coyote tag, GST, and an experience of a lifetime.
