Bear Baiting School

Learn the proper and most successful methods for baiting Black Bears. During your Black Bear Baiting School you will work with guides and prepare black bear bait sites and trail camera positioning for the best photos.  You will place bait daily and track your success. Stand placement is another critical part of successful bear baiting and we go into great detail for site preparation. All participants will be riding ATVs and need to be physically able to walk to baiting sites each day. You may bring your own ATV but you will need prior approval first. Bear viewing is always an option but is dependent on daylight activity by the bears. Bear baiting School is the last two weeks of August and space is limited so schedule early. Lodging and meals are included with your class and fishing may be added as an option. 

By the end of your stay you will have a good understanding of how to choose and prepare bait sites, stand placement, use of trail cameras and a good knowledge of black bears and their habits. You will be exposed to the “Big Woods” environment and have a chance to see bears, wolves, moose, white tail deer, lynx, bobcat, marten, fischer, ruffed grouse, spruce grouse and a variety of other wildlife. Contact us for availability and additional information about our Bear Baiting School.
