Success rates are high and are determined by the skill of our hunters and their personal goals for a trophy. Clients hunt active bait sites. However we have no control over what hunters do on the stand, their ability to sit still, be quiet and observant. We also cannot control their shooting capabilities. With all that said, we consistently rank higher than the state average and typically send up to 80% of our hunters home with a bear.
Q. Why is the success rate so high?
OMM books a small number of hunters during a season but controls as many sites as some outfitters who take dozens of hunters. This policy allows sites to cool down, sometimes for a year or two, thus bears mature and feel SAFE. Using motion activated cameras we also identify sites visited by sows and cubs and thus do not waste the client's time hunting these sites. Success comes from maintaining approximately 10 hunts per week and having approximately 20 sites that go unhunted each year while actively moving sites to keep bear guessing.
