Overall Impression: Very good

Lyle's bear operation covers two very large area allocations about 100 miles (not Kilometers) east of High Level, Alberta. Lyle is a top bear man, who knows as much if not more than most, about bears. Lyle is one of the few who can claim a 100% success rate of better. Usually he runs 150% to 200%. I just completed a hunt with Lyle the week of May 7 - 14, 2006, and I took one nice bear, and one exceptional bear, both with a bow. The other hunter in camp shot one bear with a rifle, and missed a huge another HUGE bear (7 1/2 to 8 foot based on the size of pads and actual sighting) at 30 yards. Had this bear been taken, the hunt for this week would have been at 200%. Although I didn't see any bears until the second half of the week, ALL THE BAITS WERE VERY ACTIVE. The other hunter in camp saw bear starting his 1st full night of hunting. The camp is your basic wall tent bear camp. A portable shower was set up to help keep the grime off. Water was heated in a paid for a hot shower which I used every second day. Even the Cree Indian guide in camp, Graham, used it and found it good. The food was camp food: bacon, eggs, potatoes, sausage, toast, etc. If you want a modern lodge, this hunt probably won't work for you. BUT, if you want the chance or opportunity for an above average or exceptional bear, then come hunt with Lyle.
