Taking Reservations for Fall 2021 Bear Hunt

All of his efforts are focused on giving the black bear and deer hunting enthusiasts a successful and fun experience. During the years he has established bait sites that produce year after year.

Bob's intimate knowledge of the area gives the hunter the maximum opportunity to harvest a bear or deer. On our hunts you are provided with bait and blinds so all you have to do is shoot.

At the Buck Sporting Lodge, Bob invites you to come up and check us out! As a true "Guide" he will show you the camps, let you help bait, and give you the opportunity to see the lay of the land. We encourage you to come visit any time after August 15th.
