This outfitter offers an amazing spot-and-stalk British Columbia black bear hunt, and specializes in taking archery hunters. We have about 15% color phase, and the Pope and Young minimum of 18 inches being common. So not only do we have high bear density’s, but have record book quality in the gene pool. 6-7 foot boars are common, with 95% of our bears taken in 2018 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 high density of black bears,
This is a great spring British Columbia black bear hunt.
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.
Come later in the spring season (end of May, beginning of June) the boars start to wander looking for sows in heat. At this time we’ll be sticking to glassing long stretches of logging roads and glassing on the railways. This is the time that the real big bears show up, and thus the biggest bears of the season are shot during this time.
You can expect multiple stalk opportunities.
It is not uncommon to see up to 15 black bears per day, with multiple stalks being 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.
