Trip Taken:
British Columbia Black Bear Hunt

This was an exploratory hunt with Outdoors International to vet a new Outfitter. We had a great trip with a great group of folks and were hosted by Russ Meyer. However, I would not recommend this Outfitter to anyone. The outfitter should know the rules and regulations of his concession, he did not!

  • My consultant’s communication before, during and after the trip was good.
  • My consultant was good enough.
  • Overall, my trip was good.
  • My outfitter’s communication before, during and after the trip was terrible. I would not recommend him to anyone, the outfitter should know the rules and regulations of his concession, he did not!
  • My guide was not so great.
  • Physically, the trip was easy.
  • The food and accommodations were fair.
  • Would you book another trip with Outdoors International in the future? Yes.
  • Can we use your stories and/or photos on our website? Yes.
  • Can we use this in social media? Yes.

My hunt was absolutely top notch.

The outfitter is a fantastic man and incredibly hard working and knowledgeable, there is no doubt he will do everything within his power to make peoples hunts successful and enjoyable. I plan to do it again with him next year for sure.

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.
