Michigan Black Bear Hunt

15431192_mlThis action-packed Black Bear Hunt is conducted in the game rich Western Upper Peninsula (U.P.) of Michigan.  The 5 day semi-guided trip is conducted at our Lake Gogebic Lodge and can be taken from late September thru late October.  Meals, lodging, guide, baited site, and game retrieval are all included in our package. Price for this hunt is $3,000.  Licenses are not included ($40 for MI resident) and had 100% draw success last year for Michigan residents. The closest airport is Duluth, MN (2.5 hours from the camp).
 
Bears average 200-300lbs but some of the biggest bears in Michigan come out of this territory each year. With over a million acres of prime habitat  to hunt and a high density of  black bears makes this trip very enjoyable for our clients.  This hunt includes the following:
  • 5 full days of hunting
  • Baited sites with ground blinds provided.  Hunters are welcome to bring their own climbing stands. 
  • Lodging (See below for additional info)
  • Meals include continental breakfast, hot and hearty homemade lunches and dinners.
  • Game retrieval
  • You can also bring along non-hunters ($1000) who just want to get away and enjoy the beauty of the lake and its surroundings.  Lodging and meals are provided for non-hunters.

We recommend you using a high caliber bullet or a broadhead that will leave a big hole such as a Rage. Black Bears are extremely hard to kill especially if your shot placement is not perfect. A slug gun is a great weapon for bear. Leave the low caliber and fast bullets at home. Most rifle shots are within 50 yards and bow shots within 30 yards. You will be hunting over bait primarily out of ground blinds, or your own climbing stand if preferred.
