Black Bear Hunting - British Columbia
Hunt # 36
We hunt black bear primarily in the spring within our southern peace country territory. Our Black Bear hunts are 7 days in length and are conducted 1 on 1 or 2 on 1. Bear season runs from approx. May 10th – June 10th with exact dates determined each year depending on snow fall levels. Bears at this time of the year can be found actively feeding on new grass along oilfield and logging roads as they emerge from their dens. Their fur is full and claws are long making for a stunning addition to anybody's trophy room. Although most bears in our area are black in colour, all colour phases are present. From chocolate or reddish brown, to almost blond and every colour variation in between, if you're looking for a big mature bear this is the place to do it.
The area has a vast road system with access to hundreds of miles of fresh growth along its ditches that pull these big bears in. Oilfield pipelines and power transmission lines as well as logging cut blocks are also favourite areas for these bruins to feed as they try to regain weight they’ve lost over the long winter months.
This is a spot and stalk hunt in gentle terrain for the most part, so hunters of any age or physical ability can be successful in harvesting a great bear. A typical hunting day will begin around 1 p.m. after lunch and consists of driving around in pickups or on ATV’s looking for active bears out feeding. It's not uncommon to see between 15-30 bears a week as our bear population is very high and receives almost no hunting pressure.
Once a bear is spotted your guide will determine its approx. size and the decision will be up to you if you want to make a stalk on the animal. We target mature bears in the 6 foot plus range (hide squared) and you have an excellent chance of harvesting one on this hunt. This is also a two bear area, so hunters wanting to take a second bear have that option as well.

Black Bear with Hounds - British Columbia
With the number of black bears in this area of B.C., excitement barely describes this hunt! This is action packed from beginning to end!
This is British Columbia's black bear hunting at its finest. Several record book bears are harvested every year in this area. Average size usually runs in the high sixes with several bears exceeding 7 feet taken every year, and the option to take two bears is always available.
Our goal is to provide every hunter with the opportunity to harvest a mature male black bear. Color phase harvest usually runs around 15-20%.
All of our B.C. Black Bear hunts take place in the spring and are conducted between April 20th _ June 15th. All hunts will run 6 full days, not including travel days.

Alberta Baited Black Bear
Trek the Alberta forests, bask in the colors of autumn, and breathe the scent of pure, springtime air. It’s a thrilling adventure in the wooded northlands. With your knowledgeable guides you’ll learn to stalk the majestic bear, or sit and watch them in their natural habitat mere yards below your feet.
You’ll be transported by truck to a drop off point before hiking into an oat field to glass and hunt, or be taken by ATV into the woods to a pre-baited site for your afternoon hunt. It is not un-common to be within twenty yards before taking a shot, so this is a great hunt for the average bow hunter.
Our camp in La Crete, Alberta, consists of a beautiful two-bedroom cabin with full amenities, including satellite TV, showers, fireplace, hot running water, microwave, fridge etc. We have now also added a commercial camp where each hunter has his own bedroom, 3 bathrooms and showers, a lounge area as well as an industrial kitchen.
All your meals will be homemade with love. The food you will be served will be reason enough for you to want to return year after year! Experience the personal, family oriented nature of your hosts and fall in love with their laid back style of life.
This package offers you seven days, with six full-days of hunting.
The terrain ranges from agricultural fields to densely forested bush to swampy bog land. No hip waders are necessary, but sturdy waterproof hunting boots are a must. Temperatures can range from 40°F to 80°F in May and early June during the spring hunt and about the same for the early September fall hunt, and down to 32°F to 60°F by late September. We encourage all hunters to purchase tags for wolves as they sometimes frequent the bait sites and could be seen at any time.

Although this hunt has been highly (100%) successful in the past, hunters must realize they are hunting wild game on a fair chase hunt and GHR does not guarantee the harvest of any hunted animal.
You will be picked up upon arrival at the High Level airport and given a ride to our main camp, where a hot meal will be waiting for you. The following morning you will be given a chance to zero your gun or bow. All baited spring hunts are done in the afternoons only as the daylight hours are long and bear activity peaks towards evening. Spot and stalk hunts in the fall will be done in the morning and evening unless the hunt is combined with a waterfowl hunt. In which
event the bear hunting will only happen in the afternoons. The guides will take care of you for the duration of your hunt, and return you to the airport at its completion.
1. NOTE TO ARCHERY HUNTERS! The gladly caters to the archery hunter, but does NOT allow the use of expandable broad heads for hunting black bears. Please use, and practice with a fixed blade broad head before embarking on your bear hunt.
2. A black bear requires a CITES permit to leave the country. When travelling with your recently harvested black bear, (within 30 days of harvest) your hunting license is your export permit and a CITES license will be issued to you at your port of departure. If you plan to have the bear shipped to you, be advised that this process could take up to six months. We strongly suggest taking your bear home with you if you have a taxidermist you use. Local taxidermy can also easily be arranged.
3. All employees are committed to providing you with a quality hunt and have agreed to abstain from alcohol while in the camp. We in turn encourage all hunters to keep their alcohol intake to a sensible level. No alcohol is served in our camp. BYOB
4. Every client will be provided with the current hunting regulations and is expected to familiarize themselves with the regulations. Any client who knowingly breaks these regulations, will be sent home at their own expense.
