There is something Magical about Hunting on the Winter Snow Pack.
Siberian Snow Hunts start in December! Prime Time Boar Hunting – Siberian Style
The peak begins in January and extends through February, into March. Anytime from December on is prime for Siberian Snow Hunts.
The lake effect snow comes down as the cool arctic air races across Lake Superior, creating North America’s largest snow maker.
Superior’s water is warmer than the air and this allows for a magical time of year with an incredible amount of white powder, covering the forest like a blanket, only there is nothing warm about this.
The lodge is all set-up specifically for Northern Winter Boar Hunting. There is in-floor heat in the walk out basement and that means all your gear readily drys out and stays warm and dry after your Battle with the Boars in the snow.
You will appreciate the lodge after a full day of mortal combat as these Beasts of the North Rule the hunting grounds and loose all fear of humans after dark sets in… so when you do make it out on the hunting grounds plan on heading into the lodge at O’Dark Thirty…
January is great because the snow pack thickens and the air is becoming cold. Notice all the snow on the trees. This really makes for ultra “Kool” spot & stalk in the dark cedar forest. You can cut a fresh track and follow the beast into his lair. This is exciting as the Boar flush out of the powder and you really never know what direction they will be coming – plan on bringing your big gun, or choose one from the Bear Mountain Vault.
When you come to Bear Mountain. you will be hunting a true Genuine Boar in the Great Northern Forest of Michigan’s wild & scenic Upper Peninsula. You will experience traditional hunting styles with your choice of weapons.
Marty Cox was with Dave, from Montana and he took a monster in the Snow. He used a 7 MM Remington Magnum. You can choose what ever weapon you like… but these small caliber guns are definitely on the light side. These shots are up close and personal plan on being prepared to shoot at the 30 yard range.
The Beats in the winter time are in excellent condition. Their coats have a thick wool mat underneath the long guard hairs making for spectacular Mounts.
February is when the Big Lake freezes up and the snow fall drops off. Notice the trees are not all covered with fresh powder. The snow is deep and the days are getting longer. It is easy to get in and out of the lodge and you can take breaks and recharge very easily – the Guides run a tight ship so you can focus 100% on the hunt and the Guides take care of the rest.
Eric is now over in Afghanistan serving his country – this was his personal reward for himself prior to shipping out. He did a nice job on smoking this boar in the fresh powder.
Another February Boar Hunt in the Snow – Robert is from Utah, but in the smack down.
Red Hot Boar Hunts
Any time between December through early March.
