Northern Wisconsin Outfitters Bear Hunting, Bear Hunts

This is Big Bear Country

We have access to some 966,000 acres of publicly owned land. This is prime bear country, located near the Apostle Islands in Bayfield County. The rugged terrain in this part of the state may surprise you. Dense hardwood forests, swamps, rivers and lakes make for perfect bear habitat, and this area has lead the state in bear kills for the past decade.

The typical season begins in early September and offers five days of great hunting in the wild. Our base bear camp is located on my property and is a camp atmosphere style hunt.. 80% of the baited stations are on privately owned land and are baited six weeks before the season. Tree stands are also in place. Our expert guides offer a seminar a day before the hunt to acquaint you with necessary information. Attendance is recommended. In the past five years, all of our hunters have had opportunities to take a bear. Our successful take rate is 95%.

Harvested bears will be gutted, weighed, skinned, quartered and put in a cooler. At your request we can also have your bear processed at a local meat market. A taxidermist is also available.
