The first snows of winter have fallen upon the land. This is a magical time of year as fall colors give way to the brilliant white of day and the dark of night.
Superior snows are heavy at night. You can expect upwards of 20 feet per year falling from the sky, blanketing the forest with shimmering white. Each year this once lush forest transforms into the Great White North.
For your journey, plan on both lake effect and lake enhanced snows from Lake Superior.
Spot & Stalk is a fun way to seek out the Beast of the Forest. The early mornings typically hold silent powder piled and drifted along the trails. This is ideal for sneaking through the forest unheard. Spotting movement is key to unraveling the correct trail to take.
The snow laden trees brings the bows down, restricting visibility for you and the Beast. Snow camo is not necessary as there is still green from the Cedars, Spruce, Fur, Pine and Hemlock.
This hunt will make the perfect Christmas Gift for the sportsman in your family, creating lasting memories of a great adventure.
Miles Sandy came over from Australia to add Giant Boar to his collection. He was in search of Genuine Boar and encountered his Beast in the darkest recesses of the forest.
Miles and his friend Ken Kempa from Pennsylvania experienced hunting for the Beast in the Winter Snows. These two hunters have a passion for the Steyr Mannlciher Firearms.
From Steyr: “For us, hunting is a myth and a longing, which unites accuracy, respect and self-knowledge with the ancient instinct for harmony between the human being and nature.”
Master Guide, Bill Zeidler, leads the hunters through last night’s powder into the deepest recesses of the forest in search of the Giant Beasts.
Cutting tracks and following game trails takes the hunters deep into a winter wonderland of snow.
Long shooting lanes carved in the forest make for quick and easy access during the Winter Snows hunt. If you have the patience, the trails make for great still hunting. Running and Gunning or Super Slow, Silent Hunts are viable options as well.
These shooting lanes are fun and exciting, if you look close you can see the tracks as they lead deeper into the maze.
The dark recesses of the Great Northern Forest is full of game that calls the cedars their homes. There’s more than the Big Boar to see when traversing the Winter Snows.
Working back out to the edge of the hardwoods allows you to become invisible to the Beast. They see movement but have a challenging time distinguishing you from the forest trees.
This is a great time to practice spot and stalk techniques.
While whitetails are fun and exciting to hunt, Miles came for bigger game than this buck.
You will stay warm when you are on the prowl when dressed properly. Once you spot your prey, the adrenaline starts pumping.
This is a unique environment to hunt, and you never know what you may encounter at Bear Mountain.
Bull Elk are native to Michigan, thriving even in the snow and cold. It is amazing how they can slip silently through the forest with such a massive rack.
Back into the heart of the forest as these beast are not what they are pursuing. There is always time for additional hunts another day.
The excitement of spotting boars in the thick forest creates a tension that fills the air.
The sneak is the first half of the fun. Trying to pick out the best boar and taking it is the second half.
The darkening of the day comes quickly this time of year; action needs to be taken when the opportunity presents itself.
There are ambush blinds for those who don’t desire to do a full frontal assault on the boars. This choice is up to the hunter, after all it’s their hunt.
At the edge of darkness a Beast is slain. Long live the Beast Slayer!
There is no time for Squirreling around… it’s back into the hunt for the Black Death himself.
Hunting at Bear Mountain allows you to stay a little longer at the edge of darkness and you may become known as a Beast Slayer Extreme. It is time to take just one more.
Black Death is down. All hail the Beast Slayer!
Then comes the time to leave the dark forest behind and enter the warmth and comfort of Bear Mountain Lodge. Here in the Bad Bears Den, glasses are lifted high in salute and stories are told of the great adventures of man and beast.
Now is your time to stand before the full fury of the Giant Beasts and hold the line.
There are a limited number of days that a hunter has on this planet… so don’t let life pass you by.
All Hail the Beast Slayer!
