Buck Lake Outfitters Black Bear Hunt

Black Bear Rifle Hunting

Our hunting stations are geared for rifle hunting in mind with ranges available up to 75 yards. We can set you up at a site with the yardage that you are most comfortable with.

Our Bear Hunt Stands

Our ladder stands are 15 feet in height and always placed down win of the bait station to minimize the chances of the Bear winding your scent. The same wind and scent tactics will apply if you prefer to hunt from one of our ground blinds. It is a good practice to keep your hunting clothes in a separate bag away from other clothing articles to maintain as scent free as possible while in your stand. Changing into your hunting clothes just prior to accessing your stand and applying scent shield are two more tactics that can put the odds in your favour to harvest your Black Bear. While a Black Bear’s nose is it’s strongest asset hunters also must not underestimate the Black Bear’s sight and hearing abilities. You will greatly increase your odds of tagging a nice trophy by minimizing your movement and noise while hunting in your stand. “Be patient and let the Bear present you with a good shot”.
