Since 1990 we’ve been offering May Black Bear baited hunts out of our remote camp nestled deep in North-East Alberta’s boreal forest. This is a high density bear area noted for numerous large black bears with a particularly high percentage of off colored bears ranging from blonde thru cinnamon to even chocolate phases. Wolves are also very common in the area but because of their wariness, they are extremely difficult to get a crack at, particularly with a bow.
It’s a two bear zone and we provide 3 guides for the 4 hunters in camp each week for this 6 day Black bear hunt. We have reduced our client numbers substantially focusing on quality not quantity and now offer only 2 weeks of 4 hunters per week mid-May. Only 8 Black Bear clients, total, each year! We access baits with trucks and 4-wheelers. Our portable stands are at a height of 10 to 15 feet and shots are 12 to 20 yards which is ideal for bear bowhunts with our bowhunters who make up the majority of our clients (gun hunters are welcome as well!).
