Description

Black Bear hunts are perfect for those who like a bit of action at the beginning or end of the main hunting season. Our bear hunts are in mountain zones, where baiting isn’t allowed (due to the local Grizzly population). We use the spot and stalk method instead. Expect long hikes, sore muscles, and ridiculous satisfaction. Our section of the Rockies produces some trophy-size bruins, and can be an amazing location for a combined fishing trip (spring) or moose hunt (fall). Please note that each hunter is permitted a max of two bears per license.

Description

Your adventure starts by flying or driving into Grande Prairie, Alberta — one of the great pioneer cities of Northern Canada. We’ll be at the airport to greet you and drive you out to our nearby country home and staging centre. Once you’re geared up, we’ll drive the two hours to our base camp in the Rocky Mountain foothills. It’s a huge, majestic area, surrounded by provincial parks and hundreds of miles of untouched wilderness. The limited access to the area allows us to maintain a population of some of the largest moose, elk, mountain sheep, and black bears in Canada — as well as wolves, mule deer, mountain goats, and cougars. Our camps are very comfortable. To comply with local laws and regulations, we exclusively use “mobile camps” — basically cabins on wheels. They’re warm, comfortable bunkhouses, each equipped with private areas and a kitchen. (We’re big believers in excellent food.) Upon request, or in the course of chasing a great trophy, we may sometimes move to a spike camp — where we set up large wall tents with heating. For trophy moose, we often target bulls in the 50-60 inch range (though we’ve found bigger). Hunters have a great chance at a Pope & Young or Boone & Crockett qualifying trophy. The elk here are large too — we harvest plenty over 300, to as high as 365. We won’t lie to you: our hunts are going to challenge you. The best areas are remote and difficult to access. But the pains are worth it — steep and rugged spots consistently produces monster trophies. A group we guided in 2010 bagged the two largest moose taken through any outfitter in Alberta that year, both within a few days of each other in the same zone. Adventures are made to be savoured. We have excellent camera equipment, and extensive experience with professional hunting videography. We’ll work with your preferences to ensure you can re-live the highlights with your friends and family for years to come
