One of my hunting outfitters called today with some cancellation Black Bear hunts he has available. The outfitter consistently takes some of the biggest bears to come out Canada every year. 15-20% of the bears in the area are color phase.
The coastal Black Bear hunts are 6 days long, plus travel days and are conducted spot and stalk. 4×4′s and atv’s are used to get around the outfitters areas as well as some good old fashioned boot leather to reach the outlying area. Accommodations, food, guide fees and trophy fees are included in the price. VAT, tags, license and HPF are not included. Hunters will need to fly into and out of Vancouver.
Regular price for the Black Bear hunts is $5,750, discounted price is $4,900 1×1 and $3,950 2×1. A second bear can be taken for $2,500.
Available hunt dates in 2014 are:
- April 26-May 4
- May 3-10
- June 5-12
