If you haven’t booked your trip yet, it’s time to get going! Pretty soon it’ll be too late to make a trip happen for this season, and there are tons of activities and great hunt opportunities here at Burntwood Lake Lodge that you definitely don’t want to miss out on.
Here’s why you should book your trip in advance: our 1000 miles of untouched wilderness shoreline boasts about an 85% success rate on our Trophy Black Bear hunt. This area, accessible by plane only, is a picturesque landscape filled with abundant wildlife that you would only dream of on other hunting grounds. The largest black bear that’s ever been hunted on our lands was 585 pounds – and you’ll usually find one between 200 and 350.
But, hunts book up fast, so make sure you schedule yours in advance! Give us a call today to schedule your hunt; in the meantime, here are some things you can do to get ready for your black bear hunt.
Once your trip is booked, make sure your gear is in good working order, especially if it’s been a long time since you’ve used it. Having a professional check out and clean any firearms is always a good idea.
The next thing to do is make sure all of your licenses and paperwork are up to date. You can typically update and renew your licenses online, but if you’re unable to do that you can always check with a local courthouse or agency.
The last thing you’ll need to do is get your head in the game: remember that a black bear’s senses of smell and hearing are really intense. So, practice your movements, and try out some new scent covers.
But most importantly, rest up! We hunt hard. Make sure you book by August 29.
