2016 spring proved tougher than normal due to an unusually early spring. He had two groups of hunters and both were scheduled for June, where as May should have been better. The 2 weeks provided 8 kills for 12 hunters, with nothing of extremely large size like in 2015. He did not take any fall hunters in 2016, but could take a group in 2017 and combine with some fabulous late September shing. He ran fall hunts for quite a few years with very good success.

Spring of 2015 produced 9 bears for 12 hunters, including 2 that should make the Boone and Crockett record book! All hunters had opportunities, with some wounding bears and most hunters saw 15 to 20 bears during their 6 day hunt.

2014 spring he had 16 hunters tag 14 bears and everyone had opportunities. 3 or 4 bears taken were exceptional with one having a 22 inch skull and the best weighed about 400 pounds.

6 day hunts are priced at $2,700 for rifle or archery and include nice cabin accommodations, meals, license and tax. The cabin is situated right on Tobin Lake and shing is just outside the door. The Saskatchewan River is also boat accessible from the lodge and it holds some fantastic walleye shing. He provides boat, motor and gas. Most bear hunters only sh about 2 to 3 hours per day and normally catch enough walleyes to keep busy, with some up into the 10 pound range. This lake also produces some monster northern pike in the 20 pound class.

Spring hunts start mid May and finish mid June. Saskatoon airport pickup is available for $400 per vehicle round trip or rent a car for the 3 1/2 hour drive. 2016 openings are the last 2 weeks of May and late September. Hunt BL577.
