Black Bear

As is the case for whitetail deer hunting, Saskatchewan is also known to be the best region in Canada to harvest a trophy black bear. DNA Guiding offers spring and fall hunting opportunities for this exciting animal. You will be overwhelmed by the shear beauty and vast habitat that these creatures roam. Nothing compares to the feeling you will have with your first sighting of a black ghost coming silently through the forest toward you.

DNA Guiding can take up to 23 bear hunters per year. Success is generally 100%, but occasionally a hunter may not see a bear that is up to his or her standards. Saskatchewan boasts many color phase bears and our area is no exception. Approximately 40% of our harvest is color phase and some bears will weigh over 400 pounds with skulls over 20 inches.

All of our bear hunting is from tree stands over bait. Stands are accessible by ATV and are located at least 2 to 3 miles apart. A typical hunting day is the last 4 to 5 hours of light on stand, so the rest of the day is yours to relax. Local recreational opportunities include; fishing, golfing (2 local courses, rated in the top 10 in Canada), shopping & restaurants in the National Park town site of Waskesiu, many photography opportunities, 200 miles of interpretive trails for walking, and one million acres of federal reserve. The federal reserve hosts the largest pelican breading area in the world, a large population of bald eagles, elk, fox, whitetail deer and wild buffalo, to mention a few. Make DNA Guiding your destination for guided black bear hunts!
