Well I have 6 points right now and thinking of heading up to the UP for my first hunt. Wondering if anyone can PM some contact info. Looking forward to trying my hand at a bear hunt. After filming dsconnell a few years back I am hooked :lol:

Thanks in advance!

next year i will be making my trip up, i have four points now so i think i should be good with five next year.
Depends on which zone you think you'd like to hunt. Five may not be enough for a first season tag in the Amasa unit. The bear guide gives information on how many points it normally takes for each tag.

Talk other day was amasa was 6 points maybe 7 if tags get cut. Hank felt baraga was around 5-6 this year.

I agree. I pulled Baraga and my buddy pulled Amasa two years ago and we hunted with Hank. I think it took around 4-5 and 6-7 points respectively back then.

What have you guys noticed in the difference between Baraga and Amasa on the first hunt when you have been up there?

I've only hunted Amasa, but have been at the camp a number of years. The biggest difference is the fewer tags in a smaller zone. Rarely do hunters in there go without seeing bear. Big bear can come from either unit.

I'm sure both of you will have a good time at camp. If you haven't done so yet, let Hank know what tags you drew.

I'm heading up to see Hank as well, only for the 2nd Bergland hunt. Really excited, this is my first bear hunt. September can't come quick enough!

I have 7 or 8 points now, and am thinking that in another year or two I will have to book a hunt with Hank. Can one of you guys who have used him, or are using him this year give me an idea of what the cost is? PM would be fine if you don't want to post it.

Thanks.
