However FRBO does not guide throughout the entire Fall season and rather, welcomes the hunters for the last two weeks of August and first two weeks of September which have proven to be the best dates throughout the fall season to harvest a trophy bear.
The hunts are a 7 night, 6 day hunt from Sunday to Friday. Therefore, there are 6 weeks to choose from in the Spring and 4 weeks in the Fall. Hunters are to arrive in camp the Saturday prior. Upon arrival, you will settle into your accommodations, meet your guides, and have opportunity to fine tune your equipment in preparation for a full week of hunting.
Prior to your hunt you will receive an orientation detailing where you will be hunting and describing baiting and hunting techniques. In addition you will learn how to judge bear size and learn shot placement.
ˇ 1900.00 USD for the hunt plus License (241.61 + 2.26 CND) plus Outdoors Card (9.68 + 2.26 CND)
ˇ 1550.00 USD for the hunt plus License (241.61 + 2.26 CND) plus Outdoors Card (9.68 + 2.26 CND)
A 50% deposit is required when booking your hunt and the balance paid upon arrival. A personal cheque is acceptable for deposit only, cash and traveler's cheques can be used to pay balance.
If you had a successful hunt and wish to return to the U.S.A with your trophy, an additional government fee is necessary to cross the border (35.00 + 2.26 CND).
