An abundance of food sources such as salmon, berries, and natural vegetation means the black bears are large and plentiful, often in the 6 – 7 foot square range. There are also a relatively large number of color-phase bears in brown and cinnamon and white diamond-patched chests. Coats are thickest during Spring hunts, which typically run mid-May to mid-June. Late summer and fall hunts are also available, or as an add-on to a moose or goat hunt.
All bear hunting is fair chase, spot and stalk. In cooperation with Skeena Mountain Outfitters, we have access to 1.4 million acres of combined hunting area. The Spring hunts are highly successful and sure to provide a heart-pounding adventure. They are typically conducted from our main base camp. Hunts are five full days plus a half-day for arrival and half-day for departure. Hunters done early may, by arrangement, hunt for a second bear if the appropriate tag is purchased. Separate rates apply for the second bear on a trophy-fee basis. Hunters or those accompanying are also welcome to try their luck at some incredible self-guided fishing in the local rivers and lakes.
*All hunt prices are US dollars, all over fees are Canadian Dollars, and do not include licenses, tags, gratuities, Wildlife Conservation Fee ($200), GST taxes (5%), meat processing, taxidermy, or transportation of meat and hides home. Non-resident hunting license is $180; Bear Tag is $180 plus a gov't royalty of $75 per bear for each harvested. A second bear can be taken for an additional $1500 (plus cost of a 2nd tag, and gov't royalty) , and Black Bear can be an add-on species during a fall moose or mountain goat hunt for a harvest fee of $1500 (plus tag and gov't royalty).
