Black Bear Hunting

2014 Bear Hunting Season – May 17 to June 28 Bear Hunting Facts We cover a large territory and we have some of the best guides available to maximize your success. This region produces bears averaging 200 pounds and a kill ratio of 90% or more. Every year at Taggart Bay Lodge we have taken bears weighing over 350 pounds. Most of the shots are between 15 and 35 yards. You can use rifles, muzzleloaders, shotguns, and bows. Semi-automatics are OK. Make sure to specify your special needs so that whether you use bow, black powder, rifle, or shotgun, you will be satisfied. To make sure your trip is not only successful but also trouble free, we do everything for you: track your bear, bring it back to camp, skin it, and prepare the meat (freeze it) and pelts for your return trip. We will also fill out all the paper work (export tag and CITEES permit).Baiting At Taggart Bay Lodge we put a lot of time and money into our baiting. Baiting starts in early April and runs until the end of June. Every bait site is chosen and started by the owner and checked every second day all through the hunting season. We use pastries and meat for our baiting. In a normal season we will go through 20 tons of pastries and about 10 tons of meat. A few other ingredients are used in smaller quantities. An average of 100 active baits sites are used to ensure success. You will get as many baits as you need to get your bear. In the past our customers have achieved a 98% sighting ratio, so our baiting program really works! May of our customers see numerous bears a day. New in 2012 Two differente packages are now offered to you for your bear hunts. We will now have at TBL a Deluxe Hunt and a Econo Hunt .
