"Bear Hunting Excellence . . .
. . . the Foggy Mountain Difference"
Black Bear Hunting is our
life at Foggy Mountain Guide Service
It is not a seasonal sideline
for us. It has been our livelihood for over thirty years. And that shapes our attitude toward both our hunters and the game we hunt.
We strive to consistently give our hunters the shooting opportunities
you would expect from a truly world-class outfitter.
You want a guide who produces consistent
bear kills even in years when natural foods are overabundant – those years
when inexperienced guides and hunters fail to produce.
Black Bear Hunting Professionals
Wayne Bosowicz is regarded as the dean of bear
hunting guides. He and his close knit staff of fully licensed master guides
set the world standard that others can only dream of achieving. And no expense
is spared to continually raise that standard.
The utmost Game Knowledge means consistent success.
The black bear is a trophy game animal
we know and respect. Wildlife
biologists from many states seek our expertise and advice.
and crafty, the bear's trademarks are strength and endurance. Their
nose is as sensitive as the most sophisticated radar system. Their
feed and travel patterns through our thick firs and dense bogs make
our bears a challenging animal to hunt.
"Wayne and his team are world-class woodmasters and run one of the
finest hunting operations to be found anywhere. They put their heart
and soul into their hunts to provide the very best experience for
their hunters. Ted tested, Ted approved," says Ted the bear
skinner. Read how Ted chooses a hunting guide.
Attention to detail.
Your bait site, stands
or ground blind is precisely positioned and meticulously maintained only after careful
study of prevailing winds, terrain, and game patterns. We use pre-built,
permanent stands, portables and ground blinds with all obstructing
branches and brush cleared from your line of fire. Our stands are
11 to 15 feet from the ground and offer bowhunters an average shot
of 18 yards. Rifle hunters will shoot at distances of 75 yards or
less, and hand gunners will be shooting 20-30 yards.
even at these close ranges the black bear demands shooting excellence
before he will fall to a hunter. Your target is a 4 to 5 inch square (boiler
room) area just behind the front shoulder.
Bow-hunters, it makes
no difference how good a shot you are - unless you hit a bear exactly
in the boiler room with the arrow heading towards the bear's head,
you will get nothing but a wounded bear.
bear is unlike any other game animal you have ever hunted. When
hit, a bear will not lie down and bleed out like a deer. But rather,
will run until he dies - which could be up to 20 miles. Therefore,
a precision shot is essential.
Those of you using a gun have many
options. You do not have to even wait until the bear is on bait for
a good shot. Also, a head and chest shot can produce when combined
with accurate shooting.
And never rush a shot. But when you do
have a good shot - take it. Do not assume the bear may go left
or right, or even to the actual bait. Be positive of what and where
you are shooting...it's your responsibility.
