Photo: Polar Bear Hunt Churchill Manitoba

A Polar Bear on the hunt as he sniffs around the tundra near the shores of the Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba.

As the tundra along the shore of the Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba becomes frozen and winter really begins to set in, this Polar Bear starts his hunt for food. As the Polar Bear strolls along the coastline with snow falling around him, he knows that he is not far from a good meal as their sense of smell is very keen.

A sense of smell is extremely important to a Polar Bear and one of the main factors required for their survival. The hunt is on as soon as the Polar Bear detects a whiff of a seal which they can smell for at least twenty miles. This gives the Polar Bear plenty of time to plan his attack before the seal has any idea that his worst enemy is closing in on him.

When the Arctic winter chill is gone from around Churchill, Manitoba and the temperature starts to warm up, the Polar Bear will hunt for bird eggs, berries, rodents, carrion or fish when hungry. They may even find lefts overs from a washed up whale or walrus along the coastline which they also find very tasty. ... continue below the picture...

... Winter is the favorite time of year for a Polar Bear as seals are the main source of food and they are easily accessed when the Hudson Bay around Churchill, Manitoba has turned into ice. They can set out onto the ice and hunt out a seal that can be caught off guard by a lurking Polar Bear.
