BEAR HUNTING IN THE PERRAULT FALLS ADVENTURE AREA.
All non-resident bear hunting is on large bear management areas that are controlled by the outfitter of your choice. This insures the quality of your hunt, knowing there is a very limited number of hunters in your area. Most of our fall bear hunting is done from elevated, baited stands with either gun or bow.
Bears are very curious and quiet animals. They will make almost no noise coming into the bait. They can catch you off guard. There is nothing more exciting than realizing a bear has just come into the bait and you have not heard a single sound. The Perrault Falls Adventure Area has some good opportunities for color-phased bears as well. The secret to a successful bear hunt is getting the bear into the bait at the right time and giving you that perfect shot. As with any hunting trip, patience and perseverance will allow you to harvest the bear you have always dreamed about.
MOOSE HUNTING IN THE PERRAULT FALLS ADVENTURE AREA
For a successful moose hunt you will want to make plans early. There are an abundance of trophy animals in our area but you will have to check with the Perrault Falls Adventure Area outfitters to find out who has licenses and if they are rifle or archery licenses.
Moose are animals that enjoy the low-lying lands around lake shores, rivers and marshes. There is no more excitement in the world than to call in a huge bull during the rut and watch and hear him crash through the bush to find you. Or how about a quiet trip down a secluded river and as you come around the bend, there stands the moose of your dreams.
Remember the real work starts when the moose hits the ground. An adult bull can tip the scales at 1400-1500 pounds, a cow will be 700-800 pounds and a calf is 300-400 pounds. This is the time when you want all of your good friends around to help transport that trophy animal out of the bush!
SMALL GAME HUNTING IN THE PERRAULT FALLS ADVENTURE AREA
There are many miles of old logging roads and trails to provide some of the best GROUSE HUNTING you will ever experience. With hunting season starting mid September, you can have the added advantage of combining your bird hunting trip with great fall fishing. What could be better than fresh walleyes and grouse for dinner tonight!
WOLF HUNTING is not for the faint of heart. During the early season, they are hunted from elevated stands over bait. Sometimes you are not sure who is doing the hunting, you or the wolf. At this time there are no outfitters in this region that are open for late season hunting.
MIGRATORY BIRD HUNTING IN THE PERRAULT FALLS ADVENTURE AREA
With more than 50 lakes and countless miles of rivers, bays, & shoreline, there are plenty areas to enjoy some of the best duck hunting you could wish for. What would be more enjoyable on a beautiful fall day than to sit in a duck blind with your best friend, be it man or dog, and wait for that flock of mallards you have been calling in to get in gun range, and then watching "man's best friend" go out and do all the serious work.
