If you are considering a spring or fall bear hunt, consider this – Frank Martens runs a professional outfit and I don’t think that you can find a better hunt or experience. Frank’s hunting area is full of bears, the feeding stations are extremely active and you are going to see a lot of bears; if your goal is to take two bears – there should be no problem accomplishing that goal.
Top Notch is an absolute understatement! The first three days of my spring bear hunt—with a muzzle loader—were consumed by watching and photographing bears; what a fantastic experience.
The first day, I saw nine bears; during five days of hunting I saw 44 bears! Each day of my hunt, I saw so many bears that I could have filled both bear tags during any give day.
The La Crete area is known for hosting a large percentage of color phase bears and for good reason too, they are all over the place. During my hunt, I saw blonds and browns; for a long time I have wanted a blond bear – that desire was accomplished during Day 4 with a blond measuring 6 1/2 feet in length and weighing in at 204 pounds.
Toward the end of Day 5, I took a nice 7 foot black that tipped the scales at 357 pounds and green scoring 18 2/8 Boone & Crockett points which is enough to make the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association’s “Long Hunter” record book. I saw larger bears but was enjoying the experience so much, I didn’t shoot!
Top Notch Adventures’ cabin for bear hunters is large, comfortable and well appointed. Kathy Martens’ meals are tasty, served in ample quantity and fantastic; if you get hungry, it’s your own fault!
Bear hunting near La Crete with Top Notch Adventures has got to be one of Alberta’s best kept secrets. As I said earlier, “Top Notch” is an understatement!
Book with Frank at Top Notch, you will be glad that you did.
Regards & good hunting,
Frank Martens and family,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you again for the incredible hunt you provided to me and my friend. You exceeded our expectations from the hunt itself, the accommodations, the cooking, and just the atmosphere you and your family provided. As I told you, I searched for months on the internet and made many phone calls looking for an outfitter that was dedicated and knowledgeable about bears. You proved to be just that.
It still boggles my mind about the quantity and quality of bears you have there. The color phase, size, and numbers of bears your area hosts is amazing. I have been on many of bear hunts over the years and can honestly say that my friend and I saw more bears in four days than my typical group of 4 hunters have seen on 4 previous bear hunts collectively! Alberta is second to none in my opinion.
Thanks again for the awesome experience! We will be seeing you again soon. - Joe
