TECHNIQUES

Black bear - Mostly stand hunting over bait in the spring, average shot 5-30 yds. Baiting and spot-and-stalk for Fall. We hunt at all times of the day as bears move at all times of the day and there is no darkness in the spring season. Travel by boat, most stands within 50 yds. of shore. Fall bears will be moving and feasting on berries.

Caribou - We move around by boat, glassing the shorelines. We will also hunt strategic areas of land , constantly glassing, then spot and stalk. Walking areas are excellent with mostly firm , dry ground. Hunting times 8 am - 6 pm. Average shot 50 - 300 yds.

Moose - Mostly mornings and evenings, moving by boat and calling several areas in a day. We will work the same areas throughout the week. Techniques may slightly vary by guide and lake size. Minimal walking if possible. Average shot 100 - 250 yds.
