Guided bait hunt. Dave aids you in the hunt, has great accommodations and food. Plenty of 4 wheeler trails and fishing. Cabins are awesome.
Black flys. Bring netting suit or therma cell.
Canada contains within its borders some of the wildest country and most magnificent scenery the world has to offer
Canada is home to 25 of North America’s 30 big-game species
Canada’s outfitting industry is highly professional and committed to the responsible, sustainable, and ethical use of the country’s wildlife resources
With more than two dozen huntable big game species and an astounding array of waterfowl, small game, and birds across a broad range of habitats, Canada is a hunter’s dream. From forests to tundra, from open prairies to vast boreal forests and the stunning Canadian Rockies, Canada has something for every hunter. This sparsely populated country puts great emphasis on protecting its natural resources and provides fair-chase opportunities to pursue magnificent big-game species that pique the interest of hunters from all over the world. Hunting trips to Canada are filled with beauty and splendor and offer even experienced hunters an exceptional challenge and unforgettable experience. What makes hunting in Canada unique is its rich variety of game: grizzly and black bears, moose, five varieties of caribou, cougar, lynx, Canadian wolf, bighorn sheep, Stone sheep, Dall sheep, elk, black-tailed, white-tailed, and mule deer. If you are looking for a challenge that will leave you with a lifetime of memories, Canada is the perfect destination.
Visitors from the USA and most European countries do not need a visa, but Canada does require many travelers to have an Electronic Travel Authorization, which can be purchased online for a small fee before you go. Go to http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas.asp to find out which documents you need.
Handgun hunting is prohibited in Canada. Centerfire semi-automatic long guns cannot have magazines that hold more than five cartridges. Pump or semi-auto shotguns must have their magazines plugged to hold no more three shells.
Visiting hunters must declare firearms in writing to a customs officer at the point of entry to Canada, using the Non-Resident Firearm Declaration (form RCMP 5589).The declaration form should be filled out prior to arrival at the point of entry, in order to save time. However, it should not be signed before arriving at the entry point, as a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) customs officer must witness the signature. A confirmed declaration costs a flat fee of $25, regardless of the number of firearms listed on it. It is valid only for the person who signs it and only for those firearms listed on the declaration. Once the declaration has been confirmed by the CBSA customs officer, it acts as a license for the owner and it is valid for 60 days. The declaration can be renewed for free, providing it is renewed before it expires, by contacting the Chief Firearms Officer (call 1-800-731-4000) of the relevant province or territory.
To avoid problems on their return to the USA, American hunters should have in their possession a U.S. Customs Form 4457 listing their firearm and its serial number.
Wildlife management in Canada is handled on a provincial basis. Each province has its own hunting rules and regulations, and even within a particular province, hunting styles as well as gear and clothing may differ widely. Most outfitters can be relied upon to provide a list of recommended gear and clothing, as well as suggestions for firearm types and calibers. Stand hunts, for example, often call for heavy, warm clothing, while hunters venturing to the mountains or taking on strenuous spot-and-stalk hunts should dress in layers. Comfortable boots appropriate to the terrain are a must for any hunt. Some provinces require hunters to wear a fluorescent orange hat, vest, or sometimes both.
Some provinces require all nonresident hunters to hunt with a guide-outfitter; others do not. In general, most provinces in western Canada require the service of a guide-outfitter, while a few in the eastern part do not. All hunters, however, must have a valid hunting license for the province and, if required, a valid permit or tag for the species they are hunting. In order to purchase a hunting license, you may be required to show a valid hunting license from your state or country and/or proof of having passed a hunter education course. Discuss these requirements with your outfitter prior to the hunt.
Tipping is expected and appreciated on most hunts in Canada. Tips generally range from 5 to 15 percent of the total hunt cost.
Your outfitter should be able to recommend local taxidermists and meat processors, but these services are not included in the hunt cost. Discuss these aspects with your outfitter before arrival. Local taxidermists can prepare and pack trophies to your specifications, but it will be up to you to check legalities and arrange transport and shipment of the trophies to your home.
American hunters may, in most cases, bring wild game meat and trophies back into the USA, provided it is accompanied by the appropriate licenses and declared for inspection by USDA officials at the border. Game birds and waterfowl being imported to the US as trophies must be processed at a taxidermy shop approved by the USDA. For details, contact the USDA Animal and Plant Inspection Services National Export and Import Center at 301-734-3277.
All hunters should also be aware that certain animals such as black, grizzly, and polar bears require CITES permits and, in some cases, additional export permits must also be purchased for certain animals. Check with the province you are hunting in to ascertain costs and requirements. The USA does not allow the importation of polar bears.
The accomadations along with the hospitality during the hunt as well as the in between time was fantastic. I was able to enjoy good meals as well as clean comfortable cabins! I would totally recommend hunting with Dave, he is not only very knowledgeable but very hospitable. I had a very SUCCESSFUL hunt!
There was really nothing wrong with the hunt with the exception of some rain!
Hunting was incredible. Saw bears in every sit and had some wild experiences too. Saw a boar run a sow and Cubs 100ft up a tree, good mix between mature and young bears, and two monsters. Ended up with a 600+ lb, 7' tall pope and young boar. My uncle got a nice boar and one guy in camp got a cinnamon. We fished every morning and every day (all day) after tagging out. Pike, huge walleye, and even a few good smallies. Accommodations were great. Significantly better than most hunt camps. Clean rooms and bedding, housekeeping, nice hot showers, and an unreal view. Food was incredible. Lots of game, local meats, and produce. Home cooked meals and we never went hungry. Everyone around camp is friendly, knowledgeable, and serious about your hunt and experience.
Honestly have zero complaints.
Small outfitter that provides personal attention to detail and serves as one of the guides. Strong knowledge of the area and bear hunting in general. Area has lots of game.
Extensive time in vehicle, however I realize this is the best way to cover the expansive hunting area.
I have hunted with Pat Garrett three times and each time has been better than the hunt before and all three were great. All outfitters should strive to provide the quality of hunt and hunting experience that Garrett Bros. do!
Yvonne was very helpful and professional. It was the first time bear hunting for my 16 year old son and my Dad. They enjoyed it very much! We all took bear with bows that week. Everyone in camp either tagged out or had a shot at a bear. The accommodations and food were EXCELLENT! Yvonne did everything in his power to put us onto bear. One suggestion, take a climbing stand along if possible to customize your tree location to your liking, if not, Yvonne has some to use as well. We also took ATV's along and after we were had our bear, we enjoyed going along to take other hunters out as well as ride along while they baited.
Fishing in the area is not that good, but I didn't go to fish.
Everything done in a professional, yet friendly environment
Nothing to note about, if you have a problem, take it to Vance and he will fix it if he can
Hospitality is outstanding. Communication prior to the hunt was excellent. They work hard at their hunting sites to ensure you will see bears. Saw bears everyday. Meals were amazing and plenty of food. The cabins we stayed in are very comfortable. To top it all off to include unlimited fishing. Wow!
I have been to Trail End Camp more than once, and each time they met my expectations and then some. There was nothing not to like and enjoy. I have hunted with several outfitters and Trail End Camp is one of the best.
The Champagne family made you feel at home, with all home cooked meals and family talk at the dinner table.
One area had mosquitos to warm.....
Saw lots of animals. Ate like kings ! I actually gained wheigh that week. Killed a great bear. Then slept ate and blood trailed bears. The staff made me feel like family. Had a absolute ball all week.
Can't say I did not like anything. The week was wonderful. Had a day of slow fishing. But it was more than made up for by a day of fantastic Small mouth fishing. Boated 29 in 4 hrs.
I harvested a very nice 6' 8" boar, the seventh bear that came in to my stand on the second day of a six day hunt. My son harvested a 7' 2" giant boar or a 'Corker' as Vance puts it on the third day of the hunt. Vance, Maureen, the guides, the cooks all work hard to make your stay friendly, comfortable and enjoyable. Fishing and shore lunches were fabulous as well.
My son and I had to quit hunting too early as we filled our bear tags on the 2nd and 3rd day of a six day hunt. The full days of guided fishing after the hunt made up for it.
Vance works very hard to ensure the hunter's success long before the hunter arrives by baiting the stands diligently weeks before the start of the season. He has a great team of guides that see to your every need and are very knowledgeable about the area. The fishing is fantastic and is a great bonus to the hunt. Accommodations are clean and comfortable and the food is outstanding! I have hunted all over the world and Trail End Camp is one of the best run outfits that I have been to.
Sometimes I have had issues at the border entering into Canada....just make sure your paperwork is in order and you follow their rules.
Lynx hunts are available during December-February. Please contact us to set the dates.
