Spot and Stalk Black Bear Hunts
Live the hunt and enjoy the excitement and challenge of exploring Alberta’s pristine Boreal Forest Region and locating trophy bears as they feed along Cut Blocks, Pipe Lines, South Facing Slopes, and Meadows. If that’s not enough to get you excited then hang on as we check the wind carefully and plan a stalk to get you up close and personal with the trophy of your dreams.
All our Bear Hunts are Fair Chase Spot and Stalk. You and your experienced guide will travel scouted areas by UTV, Pick up or on foot as we try to locate a mature trophy bear. These hunts are not guaranteed, but we will do everything in our power to ensure maximum effort is being put into your hunt, that you have a great time, and leave with memories that you can enjoy for a lifetime.
Our primary focus is on Spring Bear hunts when the snow begins to melt and the bears start emerging from their winter dens with regenerated coats and claws. Bears are very active this time of year searching for calories that they so desperately need after hibernation. We will start hunting in the early afternoons and stay out until last legal shooting light. Generally, a hunter can expect to do some hiking to get into certain spots and also if we are trying to close the distance on a trophy bear that we have decided to stalk. Spot and Stalk Bear hunting require patience and a lot of glassing, so quality optics are a must for the hunter. Expect to spend time driving in a utility vehicle or pickup truck as we search for bears throughout the afternoon on various logging roads, pipelines, clear cuts, south facing slopes, river banks and open fields.
The zones in which we hunt have a two-bear limit which means that each hunter can potentially harvest two Trophy Black or Color Phased Bears. This is a fair chase hunt and is targeted to hunters who enjoy a challenge, want to push themselves, enjoy the outdoors and most importantly respect the animals we are hunting. We will not harvest non-trophy juvenile bears just to fill the second tag. This ensures that we maintain a healthy, vibrant bear population that can be hunted and enjoyed for generations to come.
Mature adult boars over 6 feet will be the focus of the hunt. Both Boone and Crocket, as well as Pope and Young Bears, have been harvested in this area. This is an adrenaline high, fast pace and exhilarating hunt for Bow and Riffle Hunters alike. Never hunted Black Bears before? Let me show you why it is becoming one of the most popular hunts in North America today.
