SPRING BLACK BEAR
Our Trophy Spring Black Bear hunts are in some of Alberta’s most remote and inaccessible areas. The area that we hunt is near High Level, Alberta and was chosen for these reasons. The remoteness and lack of hunting pressure are key ingredients for Monster Bears. Much of the area we hunt hunt area only accessible only by boat. We use trucks, quads and boats to access individual sites. Because the areas we hunt are so remote and there is no pressure from humans, a lot of the bears have not seen a human before. This makes for some very bold bears. There is also a high poulation of wolves in the area.
We hunt in a 2 bear per hunter zone, meaning you are licensed to shoot 2 bears. There is a trophy fee for the second bear. Our hunting is done over bait from comfortable tree stands. All of our sites are built for consistency and comfort. The consistency of bait crib heights helps the hunter to more effectively judge bear size. Shot distances are from 13-20 yards. This setup provides near perfect shot conditions for both bow and rifle hunters.

THE HUNT
Spring Black Bear hunting is in a very relaxing atmosphere with temperatures ranging from 25 °F to 84 °F averaging around 65 °F with a lot of very exciting, intense hunting. The sun comes up at about 4:30 am and sets at about 11:00 pm.
Your day will start with a full breakfast at around 9:00 a.m. After breakfast, you can lounge around in camp, take a walk, help skin bears or go out baiting with your guide. We will have our big meal at around 3:30 – 4:00 pm.
Then it’s off to the stands by boat, quad or ATV. You will usually be on stand from about 5:30pm until 10:30 – 11:00 pm depending on where your stand is and when the sun sets.
We suggest that while on stand, you also have a camera handy along with your rifle or bow as there is usually lots of exciting footage and entertainment to be had.
Your guide will pick you up shortly after sunset and you will usually arrive back in camp between 11: 00 and 12:00 p.m. where snacks or a light meal wait for you, giving you plenty of time to discuss the evening’s events and encounters.
