For our unconditional bear hunting!
If you are planning to come on a bear hunt in Quebec, you have to know that our bear population is very abundant. Two main reasons can explained this interesting situation: the hunting pressure is at a minimum level and the quality of the habitat meets all the needs of our friend the black bear. The Baskatong area is surrounded by millions of acres of forest, rivers, streams and lakes. Wild berries and mushrooms are plentiful and can easily sustain our friend’ s appetite.
Hubert, the owner is a bear lover and as soon as he made his first steps, his father used to take him along as he was visiting his bear stands and baits. As he grew older, every spring he accompanied his father who thought him all the techniques and secrets about choosing a promising site, building a good and secure tree stand and using the proper ingredients for baiting.
He knows the surrounding territory like no one else and will select for you the best sites to make sure you will be successful. With his precious advice and his vast experience acquired over the last 25 years, your chance of seeing and bagging a trophy of a lifetime is far from being impossible.
From mid-May to the end of June
Hunting black bears on baits will be quite an excitement . You will experience new thrills that you don’t always expect but that you will enjoy and remember for ever.
