Hi everyone, Well I headed up to Northern Saskatchewan on May 6 to check out camp ,help bait,and to get my brother in law David his first black bear and film it! Well the hunt lasted a hour lol......we walked into a bait and two large boars were on it and ran off a short distance.....Jeremy said one was 18+ and one was 20+.....we hung two stands and a soon as Jeremy's truck was down the road the big boy was on his way back.....he came in but never offered David a great shot......he grabbed a fish and walked off into bush......we could hear him eating and see a big black blob back in the bush.....we watched the blob for 40 minutes or so when I heard David say "he is up and coming" in a hurry I glanced to the spot and seen black legs getting close .....I got my camera out and ready ......the bruin cleared the bush I focused got David and bear both in shot.....David drew.....Then this little voice in my head said ....that's the other bear...."thwack".... Well as many first few time bear guys know the big and bigger bears are hard to tell apart.....well David made a perfect shot.....and after a short track job ....a P&Y 18.5" bear was his! Great bear great hunt! But I'd lie if I said I wasn't mad at myself for not yelling "wait " lol.......Ill add all the hunters pics on this thread...keep checking back! Tsov
Pics of David and My hunt...us in stands
Big fat bear on a bait
Beautiful country ,awesome sunset!
Same spot at almost midnight
Was fun baiting.....there was a 19+ boar on almost every bait! This huge wilderness the guys have has been a converor belt for large black bears for 20 years....they get bears wonder out of the bush that are huge and have very little fear of man.....the camp average the last 2 springs is 19"
Moose tongue soooooo good!!!

The last Hunter for the week was Sammy H.....he had a wedding to get back to so only had 3 days to hunt.....he passed a 20+ and a 19+ all black on the first day because he really wanted a colored bear....man with 3 days to hunt I thought he was crazy....it's hunting and man anything can happen....but he stuck to his guns and on day 3 he got a 17 7/8" chocolate....so happy it all worked out Sammy!!!
Wildfire in Alberta blew some smoke into camp.
Another Successful week at lone wolf....smiles all around!
Great job guys!! I really need to get back up to Saskatchewan!!
Congrats on some great bears!!

We leave Saturday, can't wait. I'd sure like to top the one I got 2 years ago up there. I think a chocolate would be nice, but if a black one comes in with a nice crease, he'd be hard to pass.
Viewing this thread brings back very pleasant memories. Congrats to all the hunters. Give my best to Brian, Shelly and Jeremy. Lone Wolf Hunts are second to none.
Jeremy seen several 20"+ today on baits!!
Great picts Tom!
Warren and Bryan called a wolf back to truck after it crossed road! Great pic!

TSOV you have a PM
It's a beautiful place with great people... True Giants still roam as well. I have full intentions on returning next spring. Bryan and Jeremy are top notch and pretty entertaining. I'll upload a couple more pics
My bear finished out at 19 3/4"... The goal was 20". The wife has already given permission for the return. If you don't mind the travel it takes to get there you got a good chance of killing a really old and really big bear.
Amazing place for sure. Congrats to all.
Hi all....well last week ended slow with Big Boars going into full rut....this week started more of the same but I guess its getting better....4 of 5 guys have bears and they are tracking the 5th bear right now....only one pic so far ....young Luke with a 20+" stud ....look at the photo bomb blonde in background! More pics and scores to come!! Tsov
^^^^^ That might be the best bear hero trophy photo of all time !!
I think the one in the background now qualifies as and "educated bear"
That is an awesome picture. Thanks for the updates Tom!
This is time of year they get bears walk out of the bush and have never seen people....at least have zero fear....guess the blonde wanted his picture taken :)
Ok that bear green score was 20 5/8!! Also a 19 5/8 ....still no word on other two....ill update when the boys have time to text and send pics.... Sounds like bear #5 got away :(. Everyone bummed about that!! So here are the 20 5\8" and 19 5\8
Hey guys....wow something great happened today! Gary hit a bear and didn't recover it....so he paid re-hunt fee and today he was 10 miles from the spot where he wounded his bear and it showed up!!! He made a great shot and got the bear!!! And saved his $1500 re-hunt fee!! Lol awesome news!!!! It green scored 19 3/4 "!! So he and his son shot 40 1/4 inches of P&Y skulls!!! Great job guys!! Only at Lone Wolf Camps!!! Tsov
That is a crazy story. GREAT news for the outfitter & redemption for the hunter.
10 miles injured? Wow!
Jeremy sent this map.
Wow that is a heck of a story. Where did he hit the bear to start with?
It was a OOI head ....now dont want to start a debate on this but looks like only one blade deployed and he got 6" of penetration is all ...im not sure of exact placement...but it was a close shot and the head failed...amazing story how he got it....was meant to be his bear thats for sure!!!
Yeah it just amazed me how far the bear traveled. That is an amazing within itself, much less that he was able to hunt a different stand so far away and the same bear came by it as well!!! That's pretty awesome!!
Next week guys are going to have some nice bears to go after! Jeremy seen two big 20+" boars today!!
This is the other big one today..
From: Guardian Hunter
Tom,thanks for the great advice on this hunt. Brian and Jeremy are great bear guys. The bear I hit on Wednesday night was hit right in the lung area. Here is what happened! The shot was spot on. The mechanical I used somehow got deflected by a rib and possibly the hide. It shot forward just before it hit lungs. Thankfully, pilot error was not the reason. Jeremy told me that on big bears, mechanicals have given them fits. I was surprised by this but he has much more experience than I do. The next night that same boar came in with the 3 inch gash showing on the right side which served as a perfect target for the second shot. The arrow armed with a shuttle T this time hit the same exact hole and passed through. My son was with me on that hunt and first saw the bear and said, "there's your bear". I had no idea he meant that exact bear. What a crazy story. Thanks for recommending a great outfit. Rebooking for May of 2017. Gary, Guardian Hunting LLC
That is an incredible story. Congrats on your bear. You earned it!
Hey Gary....great story...its cool how it all worked out!! Those were two great bears! Glad your group had a great time! Tsov
