Spring Black Bear

Spring Black Bear Hunting in BC is our specialty! This is an exhilarating spot-and-stalk hunting experience.  In BC it’s illegal to hunt bears over bait, and in all honesty, it’s not necessary.  With an estimated Black Bear population of more than 100,000 animals province-wide, our hunters have plenty of opportunity to harvest a mature boar.  Unlike the majority of other outfitters, we only take a few Bear hunters a year to assure that our guys take large mature Bears.  Still not convinced???  We have a 100% opportunity rate on Bear hunts!

BC’s logging industry has created habitat for Black Bears to thrive and it’s in these logged areas that we primarily hunt.  In the springtime, the bears generally like to eat clover, grass and other greens that grow in abundance in logging slashes and on old roads. We also have access to private land farm fields that have produced many bears for us in the past.  These are the areas you and your guide will be concentrating on.  Your time will be spent traveling the logging roads by truck or ATV and frequently glassing the slashes, fields, and surrounding hillsides looking for mature boars.  Having such a diverse area to hunt ensures that our hunters have a chance at a trophy bear.

With such a healthy Black Bear population it’s not uncommon to see as many as 15 + bears in a day and most of our hunters will have several opportunities at good Bears.  Whether you’re shooting a rifle or a bow our guides have the experience to get you into a comfortable shooting distance.  If that’s 200 yards or 10 yards we’ll get you as close as you want to be.

The first bear is included in the price of the hunt and a second bear can be harvested for a trophy fee of $2500 that will be collected only if the 2nd bear is harvested.
