Outfitter Response: John Fisher is a regular here. John enjoys the semi guided service as it allows him to use his own knowledge along with our set ups. Hunters at camp skin and quarter their own trophies in our facilities, along with cleaning up the room after themselves. He has taken a large wide rack 8 point along with a monster 10 point. Hunters take care of the skinning and quartering of the animal. Congrats John on your success!!

Outfitter Response: Denny is a regular here at Pine Acres. It all started at the All Canada Show in Indianapolis in 2008. Both Denny and his son have both harvested bear's with us using archery equiptment. Last year's bear (2012) was taken less than 5 minutes from main base camp in Vermilion Bay ( bait sites are from 2 to 50 miles from main base). He chooses us as he enjoyes the semi guided aspect. After arrival the first day he takes over the baiting of his very active site, along with traveling from camp to his bait with his own vehicle. His hunt cost less than $1200.00 plan#2!! The guides do the tracking and retrieving along with his groups help. It's a GREAT EXPERIENCE for everyone!! Thanks Denny, Pine Acres Bear Camp.

Outfitter Response: Rod booked at the All Canada show in St.Louis, Mo. He wanted a semi- guided hunt where his wife could be in the same blind as him so she could film the hunt. He wanted a hunt that was resonably priced and successfull. He harvested a nice bear from a natural ground blind while his wife filmed his taking of his bear. The two enjoyed tracking and retrieving his trophy on their OWN, even though tracking and retrieving is part of a semi- guided hunt. He came back in 2012 with his son. He sat at a site where he was able to set up his own stand for the camera guy (Rod). We supply stands for the hunter. His son took a real nice bear about mid week. He saw multiple bear's. They again tracked and retrieved their own bear. Fully guided hunts in the Western provinces cost between $2600.00 to $4200.00 (guide does EVERYTHING!!!) He Paid $1000.00 semi-guided, for the same or better QUALITY BEAR as the western provinces (fully guided). ONTARIO MAKES MORE SENSE!!! Thanks Rod, Pine Acres Bear Camp.

Outfitter Response: Alex and his cousin met me at the All Canada Show in Milwaukee. Alex was interested in wolf and bear by bow, his cousin John, just bear. Their hunt started week of Sept 15. Alex bagged his bear which weighed about 375, the wolf he tagged was about 80 lbs. His cousin John missed a nice bear. John saw multiple bear's throughout the week. Great job guys!!!

Outfitter Response: Mr. Seagraves PICKED our remote outpost because: #1 His cousin was here the year before with a hunting partner and both were successfull (2010),with both of them thoughly enjoying themselves. #2 because of the remoteness and the do-it yourself concept. We supply treestands but I asked Mr. Seagraves ahead of time to bring a spare lockon. They knew the cabin was atv access only, outhouse and the electricity involved going outside to start the generator. We supply the jerry can of gas for the generator. Water was delivered. No guide is available to help with retreiving, tracking etc. This is why they picked this camp. They can however phone if they needed help in tracking & retreiving, we received no such phone call! We tried to contact them by phone to organize a checkup but no answer. When I checked on them they were not around. #3 because the walleye fishing is normally tremedous. I did mention he could hunt in the berry patches if the blue berries are still around at the time of the hunt. We had a frost in June which killed alot of the flowers but still had a crop of berries up to when the drought started in early Aug. The berries all dried up. I reported to him a month before he arrived that the berry patches were not avaiable to hunt over. The BONUS of no berries is that the baits were EXTREMELY active!! Both Mr. Seagraves and his cousin HARVESTED bears. His cousin bagged a nice boar, Mr. Seagraves took a chocolate bear. If someone harvests a small bear that is their decision. A big boar was still actively using the bait after he took the chocolate bear. He mentioned he could harvest his bear with a 40 yard shot after walking in a noisy clear cut. I told him MANY TIMES I would not recommend such an iffy shot. He had a hard time listenning to me. My concerns were brought forward months before he arrived. I will ALWAYS recommend only ETHICAL shots at bears or any other animal. Some hunters will get mad at me for my stance on this issue. I have two other helpers at camp, one was still learning the ropes of baiting bears and public relations. Many of this years hunters enjoyed my helpers. This person (baiter) never leaves my side while in the field. The new guide (baiter) has to start somewhere. After Mr. Seagraves hunt, he asked if I would DONATE a hunt to his hunting club. I said I would prefer not to. He seemed taken aback at my answer. If he did not enjoy his hunt, WHY would he want me to donate a hunt to his club!!! I enjoyed having thse two hunters as clients and am sorry they were not happy. I would encourage them to bring up their concerns before they leave their outfitters place. Thank you NEXT HUNT for bringing this to my attention. Chris Lavoie, Pine Acres Bear Camp.

Outfitter Response: Eric mentioned he had taken a few bear's on previous trips to Quebec. He also mentioned he had alot of fun during these bear hunting trips, (no regrets). He asked me before he booked with me if I could get him a coloured bear, something he hasn't had the oportunity to do. I said I couldn't guarantee anything but I could put camera's out pre hunt to see what I could do. Well he went home with a LARGE chocolate bear with a blond streak down it's back. His wife took a nice black bear after seeing many up till she released her arrow. They hunted my far North area out of my permanently built tree stands. Eric's bait site name was BEAR FACTORY!! He now knows why. Erics comming back in 2013. Thanks Eric, Pine Acres Bear Camp.

Oregon Hunting Information

Oregon is not known to be a trophy big game producing state. That said they do have good quantities of animals such as Elk.

Utah Hunting Information

Utah has recently been outstanding for trophy elk, but the best tags take many years to draw. Utah does have conservation tags available for purchase that allow hunters to bypass the drawing. Given the high demand for these premium tags prices can be high. In the past Utah has been a top trophy mule deer state but recently only a handful of units consistently produce B&C caliber deer.

Ontario Hunting Information

Ontario is often considered a sportsman's paradise. This large province contains huge sections of wilderness, filled with thousands of lakes that provide excellent habitat for Canada moose and black bear. Excellent fishing for walleye, northern pike, muskie, smallmouth bass and other species can often be combined with a hunt. From spike camps to 5-star lodges, there are lodges, guides and outfitters for every adventure and every taste.
