This outfitter offers an amazing spot-and-stalk British Columbia black bear hunt, and specializes in taking archery hunters. Over the years, a good number of the bears taken by our hunters have been color phase, with boars measuring the Pope and Young minimum of 18 inches being common.

Not only is there a high bear density in this area of British Columbia, but there is also a record book quality in the gene pool. Six to seven foot boars are common, with 95% of harvested bears being mature boars. New boars quickly move in to replace those that are taken by hunters. This is due to the strong salmon run in the fall, and dense population of black bears in the area.

This British Columbia Black Bear hunt has our highest success for spot-and-stalk hunts.

When the bears come out of hibernation they head to the nearest green area to gorge themselves. Thus they are found along old logging roads, clear cuts, fields, and railways. You and your guide will focus your efforts in these areas early in the spring.

If you come later in the spring season (end of May, through June) the black bear rut will be in full swing and the boars start to wander looking for sows in heat. At this time you and your guide be sticking to glassing long stretches of logging roads and the railways. This is the time that the really big boars show up, and thus the biggest bears of the season are shot during this time.

IT’S NOT UNCOMMON TO SEE 15 OR MORE BEARS DAILY!

On this British Columbia black bear hunt, multiple stalks are typically the rule rather than the exception. Be prepared for a relaxing and enjoyable hunt. We do not get up at the crack of dawn as the big bears are primarily moving in the afternoon and evenings but at that point be ready for multiple stalks and large numbers of bears.

    I have never seen so many bears in one area and I’m excited to share this hunt with my clients. If you’re looking for a great spot and stalk black bear hunt in some incredible country, this one will work.

  2. Rick Cudlipp

    I was 100% happy with my hunt!
    My consultant was Russ Meyer, the relationship that I have with Russ as a friend is very important to me and I sure wish that all of my hunts had been through him.

  7. Mark Erskine

    The outfitter,  his wife Lana and their team of guides set up a great camp for us. Lana’s cooking was top notch and she created great meals daily.

  8. Dan Szafranski

    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.

  9. Kyle Hanson

    This was my second time black bear hunting with this outfitter and it may not be the last. The quality of bears in this area was unreal. I saw the largest bear I’ve ever seen in the wild. Even got to 62 yards with my bow before the wind swirled on us 10 minutes before dark. But still how cool is that? Stalking absolute Giant World Class Black Bears, and the first hunter in two years to do so in British Columbia!

  10. Bert Chandler

    The entire bear hunting experience was a dream fulfilled. The camaraderie of the fellow hunters, the expertise and work ethic of the guide was exceptional! We saw numerous black bears on a daily basis and had multiple opportunities to shoot large boars. My grandson got a beautiful chocolate bear. Truly, the experience of a lifetime!

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.

Jesse Neveau

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.
