7 Day Hunts, Guided & Unguided, Skinning Room & Freezer Facilities
Caramat Bears Den specializes in big game Archery hunts. Although our passion is for bears, we also provide moose hunts.
We offer some of the best hunting in North America today. With our government lease, a vast wilderness, and remote hunting area, bow hunters will enjoy a great experience without having outside interference. Caramat Bears Den puts forth every possible effort to ensure high quality hunting is offered to each bow hunter. We offer a very high success rate with bowhunters only, and every year we harvest more than our share of bears.
Our Bear Management Area (BMA) is over 5000 sqkm. The following information is on the bear and moose hunts. For more information please contact Andy Gauvreau.
At Caramat Bears Den remote outpost camp, hunters must provide their own meals and lodging. All of the baits are accessible. Hunters will drive themselves to and from their bait sites. This allows the hunters to hunt their sites more freely. Hunters are welcome to bring their own tree stands, and steps if they wish to hunt from a tree stand. We use fresh meat for bait. Each site is baited every other day, and records are kept on each bait site. We do not hunt a bait site unless it has multiple bears hitting it. All hunters draw for stands, that way there is never any favoritism shown. Each bait site is only hunted once a year. BAITS WILL NOT BE RE-HUNTED!
