What to bring for a Guided Bear Hunting in Northern Saskatchewn

Black Bear Hunting in Northern Saskatchewan can be under a variety of conditions. Late May and early June will have night time lows of 40 - 55 F and daytime highs of 55 - 75 F. If the weather is cloudy and rainy, you can expect cool conditions. On hot sunny days the sunlight is very intense so sunscreen and a hat are a must. To make your trip more enjoyable, make sure you bring appropriate clothing to stay warm and dry. If you are planning for a September trip, ensure your clothing is warm and water resistant. Late September can bring cool rainy days and even the occasional snow flurry.
