There are 2 types of hunting methods available to the client: spot and stalk hunting or stand hunting over baited stands. Client’s choice.

"Black" is not the best description of these  bears as they occur in a vast array of colors such as blonde, brown, red, cinnamon and everything in between. As well, outfitter can arrange for several options regarding hunting techniques, areas, and times of year.

Choices include spring or fall hunts over great pre-baited stands accessible from a comfortable lodge. Both hunts offer super opportunities for both rifle and bow hunters.

Spot and stalk hunting: Our recommended outfitter has secured all the non-resident allocations in an exclusive western area of Alberta. Combine this area’s fine spring weather and abundant big bears make it an exciting and productive ‘spot & stalk’ hunt, available from the main lodge or in a remote cabin/tent camp.
All of these bear hunts occur in designated two bear areas, so the high success opportunity exists to take home 2 bears in an array of colors and an experience to last a lifetime.

Limits: 2 bears can be taken. Black Bears are very prolific in Alberta. As the result, both spring and Fall hunts are available with a two bear limit.

Color: A high percentage of the bears in this area are a color phase

other than black. Past clients have averaged 150%+  success

ratio, with 25% of those bears being an off color such as

Blonde, Red, Cinnamon or Brown.

Trophies: In addition to the color phase attraction, the bears can attain Pope and Young or Boone and Crockett size. In the past, bears harvested have averaged 5 ½  - 6 ½  feet with an occasional 7 footer in both spring and fall pelts making attractive trophies. 

Hunt style: The hunting areas are remote with large tracts of unbroken wilderness. We hunt over 3000 square miles as the only licensed outfitter in that area for non-resident hunting. Hunting methods include spot and stalk and baiting

Spot and stalk is a spring (May) bear hunt where hunting is conducted through the day in a non-baiting area (Grizzlies are present). Bears will present opportunities on seismic cutline’s, pipelines, logging clearings and oilfield roads which are the only access to these forest areas and are the first locations to "green up" in the spring. 

Bait hunts are conducted in either spring (May) or fall (September). Each evening hunters will be placed by their guides at an active bait. All stands are situated to accommodate both Rifle or Archery hunters. All baits are layed out several weeks in advance of the hunters’ arrival. Baiting is a very high success method to hunt here.

Spot & Stalk hunting camps: Bear camps are located in the forest and fringe territory of West Central Alberta. Each camp includes excellent home cooked meals, comfortable lodging and all modern conveniences with hunting grounds right out the back door. The area has produced trophy quality bears for previous clients and will continue to do so in the future.
