Black Bear - Alberta

Alberta Spring Bear hunts are a great time to get away, enjoy a relaxing hunt and see a lot of trophy bears. The chance of getting a nice bear is very good. This outfitter has harvested many bears between 7 and 8 feet, their best being over 8 feet. These bear hunts are conducted from a tent camp northeast of Peace River, Alberta. This is a two bear zone with many color phased bears ranging from blond, cinnamon, chocolate to black and many trophy bears.

Bear hunts take place in the late afternoons and evenings from ground blinds and tree stands. In Alberta there are approximately eighteen hours of daylight at this time of the year, so shooting light does not end until 10:30 - 11:30pm. You can expect your shots to be 20-50 yards with a rifle and 16-25 yards for bow hunters. All hunting is done over bait sites which have been set up in advance.

Their bear camp offers many conveniences to make your outdoor experience more comfortable. The camp is entirely self-contained, with wood heated sleeping tents for two, a large cooking/eating tent with a stainless steel kitchen, all the conveniences a cook could wish for. Electric lights and a propane heated shower. They do all they can to provide comfortable accommodation even in the remote area they hunt.

Black Bear hunts are conducted in the month of May. You would arrive Monday morning and depart the following Sunday morning.
