The perfect black bear territory

We are located on the edge of the local farmlands, where tended fields give way to the vast and dense boreal forest. This is where the game population thrives thanks to their ease of access to ample amounts of forage in the summer and fall.

The home of giant black bears and color phase bears

In the spring black bear season, we target the pre-rut on into the full rut period. It is our experience that this is when the big old giant black bears pop out in the area, we are
confident that you too can bag a winner.

In combination with a great population of giant black bears we also have a dense population of color phase bears. In fact, we would not be exaggerating by saying color phase bears in our area would run right around twenty percent of
the total population.

Book Your Hunt


“Greg and his team took care of everything from the meals and lodging to making sure our rifles were still sighted in after the flight. They showed us the trail camera photos of the bears in the areas we would be hunting. Every detail was covered.”



“I have been hunting Saskatchewan for around 18 years and I always look forward to coming back to White Fox. I have taken great deer and bear during my trips, with bow and rifle. I have enjoyed my relationship with Greg Hamm at Bone Quest outfitters. He takes great care to ensure his hunters have everything they need to ensure the hunt will be comfortable and memorable.”



“Every aspect of our Saskatchewan bear hunt was terrific! Greg and his team at Bone Quest Outfitters excel in scouting before you arrive and put us on the bears! Also, the lodging, meals and camaraderie makes you feel welcomed and right at home….. we’ll be back!”



A Typical Day In The Camp

Morning to Early Afternoon

Wake up to a continental-style breakfast. Enjoy spending the morning fishing, shooting on our archery course or lounging.

Mid Afternoon

We serve a large mid-afternoon meal to see you through the evening hunt. After your meal has settled, we load into the guides’ pickups, and head for the Saskatchewan woods.

Evening to Late Night

Spend the evening hunting, after which you can expect to return to a spread of hot food fit for a king. Share your stories of the hunt while our expert guide team skins your trophy.


Our modes of transportation vary based on the location of the most active stands. UTV, ATV and/or argo’s are used to access our various stand locations.


You will be given a communication device allowing you to contact our guide team in the event of a bear down, or in the event of an emergency. Unless you contact your guide early, pickup will be just after legal light.


Our spacious accommodations located on the edge of the endless wilderness offer each hunter their own bedroom with easy access to the bathrooms. In combination with the privacy of your own bedroom, we have a large common lounging, dining and television room. You’ll be treated to delicious hot meals created by chef Adam before and after your days hunt.

What should I bring on my Saskatchewan black bear hunt?
  • A mesh bug proof head cover, for the mosquitos. Bears like to be near water in heavily wooded areas. Freshly hatched mosquitos also like these areas making this item a very important item that I would not recommend going without.
  • Bug proof gloves: While I’m on the mosquito topic bare skin is a bad idea. You want to be able to sit still and do your best to be undetected while on the stand.
  • Quiet Camo Rain Gear: Although the rain isn’t the best of hunting conditions it is one that is unpredictable and one that we will endure and hunt through, so having the right gear for the situation is important.
  • Orange ball cap and Vest: I’m speaking for rifle hunters headed to our neck of the woods in Saskatchewan. This is a regulation for all rifle hunters or bow hunters carrying a rifle. Bowhunters, muzzleloaders and shotgun hunters are exempt from this rule.
  • Water Proof Boots: Every stand location is different but some might include a little bit of swamping on the ATV’s to get to. Dry feet ensure a comfortable evening in the stand.
  • Reasonably Warm Clothing: The spring weather in Saskatchewan is a unpredictable variable on your hunt. It can range from the mid 40’s on through the lower 70’s. Having the right gear with you to comfortably endure these temperatures will ensure a pleasant experience.
  • 2 boxes of Ammunition: Airlines and baggage handling is another unpredictable aspect of your trip. Having extra ammunition so that any issues with your firearm and optics can be corrected before you hit the stand.
  • Firearm or Bow: It’s hard to hunt without them.
  • Passport: It is a requirement for any non resident of Canada to enter the country.
  • Firearm at the Border: You are required to declare your firearm at the border by having the paperwork in the attached link filled out and on person.
