Russian Boars are staged in ambush within the dark dense forest. All you can see in front of you is green. Looking around your senses heighten. You here the chirping of birds, the sweet smell of pine flows through the air. You are on a maze of trails that have lead you into the deep black cedar forest. The ground is soft and spongy, moving silently you approach the unseen beast.
Your Guide use a hand signal, it is time for you to be ready…
You know the Russian Boars are an uncanny specimen and unpredictable. They can come from any direction, at any second,
Your Beast may explode from his bed. Will he flee, or will he stair you down.
Russian Boars are great to Hunt in the Summer. This is one the of benefits of hunting Bear Mountain Lodge. The crisp cool summer breeze off Lake Superior provides ideal conditions for Still Hunting the Dark Timber.
When all other hunting seasons and species are closed, you can still hunt the Russian Boars of the Great Northern Forest. Summer hunting keeps your senses and skills sharp and on target. Opportunities to hone in your hunter instincts are endless. Try your hand at spot and stalk, ambush, jump shooting and many more.
Russian Boars a Unique Experience
Hunting Summer Russian Boars offers the hunter a very unique adventure. Thick cedars, large overbearing deadfalls, and pockets of mud holes, transports you to the great forests of Europe and old mother Russia.
These are real Russian Boars in an authentic setting. Being located only 13 miles from the shores of Lake Superior, temperatures tend to be moderate. Expect mornings to be cool in the 40s and 50s and day time temperatures to get up in the mid 70s sometimes hitting 80 degrees.
Days are long and darkness doesn’t set in until 10:00 p.m. A great way to hunt these long days is to lay up for a few hours in the afternoon of the day, and prepare yourself for a quite evening of spotting and stalking, or if you choose waiting in ambush.
Russian Boars, Friends and Family
This is a great time to go hunting with all of your friends and family.
Young hunters are out of school and need a positive activity to do with their family. Father/Son hunts are very popular in the summer.
This is a great bonding experience and paves the path to manhood.
It is your chance to teach your children about life and death in the wild, respect for a noble beast, and the ancient urge for survival and success.
Don’t miss out on the young ladies, this is more important now than ever. Young women are not only learning to hunt, they are becoming masters at the art of hunting. Starting young builds the entire family on hunting morals values and ethics.
You may bring the entire family, however not everyone has to Hunt. The Lodge is first class and the Port City of Marquette is only 15 Minutes from the lodge. Great little jewel of a city right on Lake Superior.
These Youngsters will never forget their Dad’s Hunt for Russian Boars Hunt. Everyone share in the Phot Opt. These kids are so happy to be part of the Hunt.
Bring the Right Gear
I highly recommend light clothes for summer hunting. You will want a couple pairs of light pants and shirts (camouflage) with a warmer sweatshirt or jacket for early morning and late evening excursions.
A camo cap is also recommended. Good boots are important and you should bring two pair. One pair knee high rubber boots, the other a good pair of leather goretex pack boots.
Weapons of the hunt are up to you the hunter and all are welcome When Hunting the Russian Boars
As always, I recommend the biggest gun you have in your gun case. Some popular and very successful calibers are the 30-06, 45-70, 450 Marlin, and the 375 H&H.
If you happen to be going after these boars with archery equipment, be sure you are pulling adequate poundage, I recommend 50 lbs. but more is better.
Plan on pin point accuracy with your equipment. Shot distances in the summer will tend to be less than 25 yards. You will find it very challenging to get the right shot in such thick and heavy timber.
The Russian Boars are a Pork Chops with Attitude
When you slay the beast and become a successful hunter, you will find the meat from the summer time boars to be extra sweet. The boars are building up a fat storage all summer long in order to prepare themselves for the long cold winters. Taking down a boar in the summer means you are getting a “well rounded” beast. You will find the meat to be a red meat, with more of a venison texture. Perfect for grilling and entertaining your friends the remainder of summer.
Do You Have What it Takes?
Hunting the Russian Boars during the summer months is not for everyone. It takes perseverance, patience, and a lot of energy.
However, the guides at Bear Mountain are fully trained and are capable of recognizing the hunter’s capabilities and will do whatever it takes to get you on a trophy of a lifetime.
