We hunt mainly from comfortable tree-stands over baits, from around 4 P.M. until dark. Your guide will drive you with a 4x4 or an ATV directly to your stand, The average shooting distance (for rifles and muzzleloaders) is between 40 and 70 yards, but we also have special tree-stands for bow hunters where the shooting is between 15 and 30 yards.
Most outfitters give you a tree-stand and that’s it. With CanadAventure, your guide takes you each day where the bears are the most active. We carry thousands of pounds of meat, fish, bread and molasses to attract our bears and although we constantly keep over over 40 active spots baited, we will not take more than 4 hunters per week.
31 out of the past 33 years, we maintained a success rate of over 85% because :
- We are in top quality bear country. The whole ofNew England would fit nicely in the woods behind our lodge ! Mixed woods, spruce swamps and blueberry covered hills are the kingdom of the black bear.
- We only skim the cream off our bear population. To ensure top quality hunting, we now take no more than 16 hunters per year.
- Over 80% of the bears we harvest are adult males. When we find signs of sow with cubs, we close the hunting in that area.
- We are professional guides and when you book a hunt with us, we have only one goal in mind : to ensure you a safe, enjoyable and successful hunt.
As we usually hunt from 4 PM to dark, boats and motors are available free of charge for our guests. Try your luck on some voracious Northern Pike (ranging from 2 to 25 pounds !)
