Welcome to Hughley Guide Services


In Loving Memory of our son Jeff Hughley and great Bear Guide that is truely missed!

Thank you for your interest in our Bear Hunts. We are a family owned and operated business specializing in areas 45, 51.  We are located on the east side of Lake Mille Lacs.  We take hunters Sept. 1st - 5th (our most popular time) and Sept 7th - 12th.

We offer a 5 day bear hunt for $1000. There is a $200 non refundable deposit . Your hunt will include supper after your hunt each night and we offer to remove your bear from the woods, skin, gut, quarter and cool it in a freezer truck.
