Dan with a dandy bear

Hunter: Dan Szafranski
Date:
May, 2018
Trip Taken:
British Columbia Black Bear Hunt
Consultant: Mat Cervantes | OUTDOORS INTERNATIONAL

In my opinion all aspects of my 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.
