Minnesota Deer & Bear Hunting

There are very few places on this earth that offer a more enjoyable experience for your deer or bear hunt than the Minnesota Northwoods. Endless acres of dense forest give you a hunting experience you will remember for a lifetime. The settings are so beautiful, the harvesting of the game becomes secondary. Minnesota is one of the all time leaders in Boone and Crockett Record Whitetail Bucks, and has one of the highest population of Black Bear in the U.S. There are still plenty of "Monster Bucks" and large bears roaming the Great Northwoods. Our guided bear hunts offer shot opportunities in the upper 90 percent.

Let Yukon Jack Outfitters make it a Journey of Dreams while you experience the thrill of chasing the elusive Whitetails or Minnesota Black Bear in the great Northwoods.

Grouse & Waterfowl Hunting

Northern Minnesota is known as the "Grouse Hunting Capital of the World." No other state harvests as many Ruffed Grouse or provides as much public hunting land as northern Minnesota. Sportmen harvest on an average of 600,000 birds annually. This is more than any other upland game bird and mamals combined.

The distinctive drumming of the Ruffed Grouse is music to the ears of avid bird hunters and wildlife enthusiasts alike. The annual Ruffed Grouse Society National Hunt , held each October, attracts hunters from all over the world.

In the land of 10,000 lakes, Minnesota offers some of the best duck hunting available. Minnesota has over 23 species of ducks and geese, the largest being the Canada Goose.
