HUNT REPORT: British Columbia Black Bear | Dan Szafranski

HUNTER: Dan Szafranski
HUNT: British Columbia Black Bear Hunt
CONSULTANT: Outdoors International

May, 2018

In my opinion all aspects of my British Columbia black bear hunt were met or exceeded, and I would definitely recommend this outfitter to other bear hunters using either bows or rifles. My plan will be to return when possible.

Upon our arrival into Prince George, British Columbia it was nice to be met at the airport and driven directly to the lodge. Jeff and Lana were very helpful with any of our needs which were few due to the fact that camp was we’ll supplied. Gary and Ryan, the guides, were knowledgeable and very understanding and helped us prepare for the hunt. While we were not used to the late day hunt start time (4:00 pm) they most certainly knew the bears routine as we saw several each day with the only exception being the first day.

My stalk was over 30 minutes with Ryan our guide seemly instructing me correctly at every turn, I was able to take a nice bear. Ryan took good care of the hide and meat and also Jeff was able to setup taxidermy services which will get my trophy sent directly to my home.

Our hunt was excellent.

We saw bucks every day along with all other sorts of wildlife. Mountain goats, bears, and foxes were common sights. Fishing and crabbing was special bonus. The food was excellent, the crew was amazing. Outdoors International did a great job of finding exactly what we were looking for.

What an amazing experience!

The hunting lodge was out of this world!, Rooms, food and the scenery were all A+. Our guide was exceptional and had us on Shiras moose all five days. We saw over 30 total with at least 10 bulls. They had a plan for everything including taxidermy and game processing.
