Jimmy's Guide Service offers three types of hunts to suit your needs. At the time of booking your desired hunt we require a half down non-refundable deposit to hold your spot. Balance is due upon arrival. We accept Personal checks, Cashiers Checks, and cash.
We do not take credit cards.
We do not provide lodging or meals. For the 2019 season we will again have limited first come first serve on-site camping at our home. We will provide information on lodging and dining for you. We work with a couple hotels in town and the large City Of Grand Marais Campground right on Lake Superior. There are also many Federal Campgrounds for camping, most all are located on inland lakes. The campgrounds charge a daily fee. There is water and restrooms at the campgrounds. You may also set up camp out in the woods near bait sites for free.
We ask that you arrive at camp the day before your hunt to go over stand locations, equipment, safety, and sign a release of Liabilty form. It is also a good chance to meet other hunters from Minnesota and surrounding states that hunt with us. We will provide snacks and drinks at pre-hunt meetings. We have a stand in place and 3d targets to practice archery shooting.
Our 2019 guide season will run from September 1st till September 16th.
All hunts are 5 full days.
