What You Should Know Before You Come

Before you leave for your bear hunt at Bear Paw Outfitters, you should familiarize yourself with regulations governing hunting and gun registration.  The following links should prove valuable as you prepare for your bear hunt:

Saskatchewan Environment & Resource Management - Hunting Regulations

Canada Firearms Center - Gun Registration


Note:  All non-resident guests must complete the Non-Resident Firearm Declaration (Canadian government forms RMCP 5589 / CAFC 909 and RCMP 5590 / CAFC 910) and present them in triplicate and unsigned at the Canadian border, along with your firearms and $50 Canadian payment.


Further information and the forms can be downloaded from the government website at:  Canadian Firearms Center.


If you will require assistance in obtaining these forms, please call us no later than March so we can be assured of your receiving the forms before you leave for camp.

Northern Saskatchewan Weather

The weather during the spring bear hunting season is typically cool, but comfortable.  Historical daily averages for Saskatchewan bear hunt seasons range from 60-65 deg. F (daily high) to 39-45 deg. F (daily low).

Tips For Entering Canada

To help you cross the border with minimum hassle, here are some basic travel tips plus direct links to the important information:


Note:  When you enter Canada from abroad, passport is required.  A valid visa may also be required.  If you are traveling from the U.S., be sure to allow plenty of time for your passport to be issued.


Criminal Records - Individuals with criminal records, including DUI convictions, may be refused entry into Canada.  A waiver can be obtained, but must be handled prior to travel to Canada.  It is strongly recommended that you apply for a waiver to eliminate the worry of being refused entry.

Getting Your Trophy Home

BPO will skin and freeze your bear and prepare it for transport home.  Taxidermy services are available in Saskatchewan if you desire.  If you plan on taking the hide and skull home, make sure you bring a cooler or tote for transportation.  If you take your hide with you all risk and luggage costs are the responsibility of the hunter.

your bear hunt

A typical day will begin on the deck in front of the cabin with a cup of freshly-brewed coffee and beautiful Saskatchewan morning.


Once everyone has enjoyed a hearty breakfast some decisions will have to be made.  The options will be to spend some time on the quad with your guide baiting, checking for bear activity and getting to know the country and various bait locations.  Another option would be to take advantage of the great fishing in one of the local lakes.  The last option for the die-hard bear hunter is to get into the tree stand first thing in the morning and break up the day how he or she desires.


After an exciting morning of whatever activity is chosen, we will meet back at camp.  The afternoon will allow for activities such as fine tuning your weapons and then to the tree stand for the time of your life!
