Bear Hunting Is In The Family
Eastern Sky Guiding Services is a family run business.
Consisting of Richard Geres (Owner/Operator), his wife Marla and their 3 daughters, Carlie, Taylor and McKenna. All 3 girls have harvested 400lb bears at the age of 12.
In 2013, Marla harvested a 510lb, 21 11/16th black bear, winning her numerous awards. As for Richard, he has harvested a 500lb bear, scoring just under 20”.
Where You Will Hunt
Our 18 non-resident allocation tags are in prime country, located along the North West and North East side of Duck Mountains Provincial Forest. With 15 bear sites and numerous trail cameras, our clients on arrival will be able to view pictures and set some hunting goals.
Whether your goal is head size, weight, colour phase, rifle or archery. Eastern Sky will be able to guide you towards them.
What To Expect With The Hunt
All bear sites are baited, baiting begins as early in the spring as the law and weather permits. We hunt out of single or double tree stands. All sites have trail cameras, so we will know exactly what each are producing and how active each site is.
Average shot with a bow will be 15-30 yards, with rifle being no more than 100 yards. Average bears are 300lbs, it is not uncommon to have 400lb bear coming in. Then there are the dream bears, that are 500lbs plus and approximately 30% of the total bears will be a different colour than black.
