HUNTER: Travis Browne
HUNT: British Columbia Black Bear Hunt
CONSULTANT: Russ Meyer, Outdoors International
May 16-23, 2019
Had a great time black bear hunting, our guide Danielle was great to work with. Let us get out and stretch our legs and allowed us to get some real bow hunting in! The group in camp was a riot (in a good way), and a fun time to get to know. The food was decent, a couple of bad meals but then there were a couple of good ones too. The bear hunting was great.
- Overall, my trip was good. There were a couple of issues I felt could have been handled differently by the Outfitter, as there was some tension after these happened. Since this a vacation I was bummed it happened, since we’re all there to have a great time not argue or cause drama. I also witnessed some arguments between and an employee I feel should’ve been handled in private. But overall the trip was fun and the hunting was fun.
- My outfitter’s communication before, during and after the trip was fair. I didn’t get the info email from the Outfitter letting me know what was needed until I asked Russ about it and he sent me the packing list the same day.
- My guide was good.
- Physically, the trip was easy.
- The food and accommodations were fair.
- My Outdoors International Hunting Consultant Russ Meyer, AKA “Old Balls” is knowledgeable about hunting but could use a little more OTJT *On-The-Job-Training LOL (Not sure if that’s abbreviated correctly).

My hunt was absolutely top notch.

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.
