Black Bear Hunting:
Merkel's Camp has been providing fishing/Black Bear hunting packages since 1963 and is one of the original Black Bear hunting outfitters in this area. Our bear management area has over 250 square miles of prime Black Bear habitat. We offer an exclusive bear hunt package tailored to specifically suit you, whether rifle hunting or archery hunting.
Our stands are pre-baited a minimum of 2 years in advance of your
hunt, which is why our bear hunting guests experience an unusually
high success rate. Sightings at our stands are so plentiful that
hunters can have the confidence to pass on smaller bears and wait for
the big old boars to come in. Some stands are baited 5-7 years before
they are hunted. We limit the number of hunters we guide; therefore,
combined with our extensive baiting, knowledge and great service, you
can be assured a quality hunting experience! Most of our bears range
in the 275-500 lb range with the potential for a huge bear.
