Black Bear Hunting
Each fall, Marten River Lodge hosts our annual black bear hunt. Our exclusive, professionally-managed hunt program allows for only 4-5 hunters per week over two weeks. We hunt in zones 40 and 41 and we do it all from baiting to butchering! Stands and Blinds are baited daily well in advance and throughout the hunt. We offer strategically-placed, monitored baits and provide daily transportation for hunters.
Bears average about 200 pounds with our record bear at 373 pounds. Bears are retrieved, skinned and butchered for your convenience. Meat is packaged, labelled and frozen for you to take home along with your cape. Because we limit our hunt program to just two weeks each fall and just 4 or 5 hunters per week, demand is high so book early.
