POLAR BEAR HUNTING
You can't go wrong using our outfitter in the Arctic for your polar bear hunt.
NORTH AMERICAN 29
To qualify for the Super Slam of North American Big Game®, a hunter must have registered the legal taking of all 29 of the traditionally recognized species of big game animals native to North America. A polar bear is one of the most expensive and difficult to pull off of these hunts, and having the right people on your team is essential. Learn more about our polar bear hunt.
PLANNING A HUNT
Hunting in the Arctic is undoubtedly the most physically demanding hunt that a modern day hunter can pursue. Everything from the gear you take to your travel itinerary is extremely important. We have helped a number of hunters complete their North American 29, and we’d love to earn your business as well. Let us help.
Contrary to popular belief, polar bears are a conservation success story. As it is with many other animals around the world, polar bears might have faced extinction had it not been for the efforts of conservationists. Controlled and tightly regulated hunting has helped by giving them value.
We recommend only one Polar Bear outfitter.
This hunt takes place in Nunavut, Canada, and we truly feel that you can’t go wrong booking your polar bear hunt through us.
Shopping for a bargain on an Arctic hunt is asking for trouble! “Good enough” doesn’t work on something as serious and hard to plan as a polar bear hunt. Luckily for you though, we’ve already done all of the homework and have found who we consider to be the best Arctic outfitter in the world. Hunting out of Nunavut, Canada, he pioneered hunting in the high Arctic in 1981, and has maintained a success rate of 100% from then on!
Healthy polar bear numbers have been successfully maintained through “sex-selective” harvesting in which only 33% of bears taken may be female. Since 1975, polar bear populations have actually increased slightly. The Canada Arctic is home to roughly 16,000 polar bears, two thirds of the world’s population. Government biologists keep a close eye on polar bear populations in the Canadian Arctic, and a very limited amount of licenses are issued each year.
- Spring hunts take place from March to the end of May. In the spring, there is an option for traditional hunts by dog sled teams.
- Fall hunts August to October are also available.
- Hunts includes 10 full days of polar bear hunting, guided one-on-one. If needed, up to 5 extra days may be added at a daily fee (Extra Days on Hunts in Resolute Bay Only). Custom Itineraries can be provided for each client, mapping out round-trip travel plans from their home to the area they will be hunting.
- Comfortable camps situated in prime areas that may be up to 160 kilometers from any one of our Inuit communities.
- The polar bear hunt is over when a bear is harvested, even if this happens in the first day or two.
Some polar bear hunting regulations you need to know:
- The U.S. government does not allow hunters to import polar bears. If you have a home outside of the U.S. or any connections internationally (where polar bear imports are legal), store your trophy there until the law is overturned.
- We do have a solution for non-importable bears though. We work with a taxidermist who specializes in replica polar bears, and they look good! There is understandably a hefty price tag, but depending on your situation, it may be worth it for you. Let us know if you want more information.
