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
BC Outfitters for more information.
