We are located in the Chippewa National Forest near Leech Lake (Minnesota). Most baits are located off main roads. You are placed in ladder stands or ground blinds where guaranteed active baits are maintained. We will assist you in any way we can --- very experienced trackers - skinning - walk-in cooler - well established bait sites (more than 30 years) - bait everyday all through baiting season, live and guide in the area year round.

Our success ratio averages around 75% depending on marksmanship. Most all of our hunters have good opportunities at legal bears.
