You might want to send these

You might want to send these folks a email and check them out.  I have no idea of prices but they look like they know their business.

For that kind of budget, you could do a couple of hunts even if you fly. Good luck

Yea, that's paying for

Yea, that's paying for privilege to be in the same company as Jim Shockey, not bear hunting per say. I'd like to hunt with Jim but that's kind of a steep price to pay.

Numbnutz, I went with

Numbnutz, I went with Timberlost Outfitting bsed out of Leoville, SK     http://www.timberlostoutfitting.com

They are a top notch outfit, they have an 88000 acre bear lease and only harvest 15-20 bears/year.  Deven (owner) is just getting this bear outfit going, purchased it from a good friend (his wife actually), who died unexpectedly at a young age.  Deven, his dad Tom and camp guide/cook Dustin know thier stuff and do whatever they can to get you your bear.  The most bear I saw in one sitting was 10, they have lots of stands with none closer than two miles, numerous cameras and no shortage of bait.  You will fly into Saskatoon and they pick you up there (I drove as I am from ND), you than drive for about 2 1/2 hours to Otter Creek Camp and from there it is about 1 1/2 hours by atv to the camp.  It is very remote but you have all the amenities of home.

They charge $2,850.00, this does not include your fishing license which was $75.00, they do have a nice pike lake and two boats right at the base camp.  Three squares a day and the food is unbelievably good.  If you want a quality hunt, I would not hesitate to contact them and at least visit.

You mentioned Shocky, Tom has actually spent some time with him!

Check out this site   http://www.timberlostoutfitting.com/bear2010.html     my bear is the center one in row three (Pat's Bear) and my video interview is the one on the left in row two of the videos section.

If you have any questions at all feel free to email me and I will help if I can.  Good Luck in your quest!

Pat Brenden
