About this hunt

Due to our remote territory, the minimal human presence, and the absence of hunting pressure (25 tags per year over 240,000 acres , with max. clients between 15-18 per year), the Black Bear population is healthier than many other places. The chances of getting a Black Bear over a 5 day hunt are excellent. It is very likely to get a color phase bear (black, blond, chocolate and cinnamon with white blaze spots on their chests). During the bear season, each hunter will have the opportunity to do some fishing after he harvests his trophy. The lodge is on the lake front; providing great spring fishing (mainly northern pike and walleye) even from the docks. Gear to bring: — Gun and /or bow, ammunition, no hand guns please — Fishing rod (we have spares) — Bug spray, net (if preferred or Thermacell) — Own safety belt if preferred — Rubber boots, rain gear — Rifle hunters must wear red, blaze, yellow or white, or any combination of these colors, must have red or blaze hut, — Black powder and bow hunters may wear full camo — Mid afternoons can reach 30°C, cooling possibly to 0°C at night. Layers are best, so you are ready for any weather — Camera and binoculars

John United States 10.0 of 10

The most premier Outfitter in Saskatchewan

This outfit is great on every front! From the moment you arrive you receive top notch service! Val takes incredible care of each and every client that stays there. The Lodge itself is a comfortable place that feels like home and to top that off Vi (Val’s wife) cooks up some of the best home cooked meals that I have ever had at any outfit. The two of them make a strong team together. This is just the accommodations, this place is an outdoorsman paradise! Tower lodge sits on one of the best fishing lakes that I have ever personally fished in my life. My Father and I always catch hundreds of fish in the morning while we are killing time before we head to the bear stand in the afternoon! I mean come on is there a better way to kill time than to fish?! After fishing for the morning you head back to the lodge and have a great lunch and get ready to head to the bear stand! Val has spent countless hours setting all of his bait sites and it shows. Both years that I have hunted bear with them I shot my bears on the first night. It isn’t unlikely to see several bears within the first hour of sitting in your tree stand! This is a must do trip! The service is top notch and the hunting and fishing is second to NONE! Thanks Val and Vi for providing such an amazing hunting and fishing destination!

Great hunt, year after year!

The accommodations were extremely clean and very comfortable. The food was delicious every meal. The guides were highly qualified and had done hours of preparation and scouting. Quality and quantity of game were both excellent. We have hunted several years there and will be back again!

There was nothing to change about the great hunt and awesome Outfitter.

I've been there hunting 8+ times

The outfitter is the hardest working outfitter I have ever had that will stop at nothing to make your hunt and experience the best possible experience you can have. The food is delicious, the hunting superb, and the lodge is beautiful, right on Dore Lake.
