In Autumn the hunt is done from the boats, by moving from one island to another, where there is a good chance of finding the bears. Lodging is in heated tents and drinking a lot of tea is necessary. The professional guides are Inuits, who have their own rhythm of life and the hunter has to cope with it without nagging. This means that 5-6 hours per day are spent hunting, while the rest is spend inside the heated tents. The successful outcome of this hunt is very high, in the last ten years out of 100 licences, 98 bears have been taken. For this hunt in Spring a sleeping bag for -40°C is necessary and very warm clothing, while in Autumn the temperature is around 0°C.
