About this hunt

Our territory hosts some of the highest black bear populations in Southern BC due to top quality bear habitat. Expect to see multiple bears with a variety of hide colours with a very good chance of spotting a colour phase bear (we see a good number of them each season). Our bear hunts are very unique due to the snow conditions and have a very high rate of success. These bears often start foraging in early May when there is still substantial amounts of snow in the back country. By passing on the smaller and immature bears your odds are great for connecting with a mature animal. Hunting is spot and stalk with travel being by truck, ranger (side by side with tracks), or on foot. Can take 2 bears per hunter. Bring a friend for a 2x1 hunt! Also a great hunt for a beginning hunter! Fishing can be included in the trip for just the license fee.

Unprepared and not worth the money.

British Columbia was a beautiful visit but you can spend less money for a one day drive on your own. Tom did make a great deer roast dinner and baked chicken on two of the nights. Nate's dogs were very good; unfortunately, Tom didn't have any cats to chase.

Tom did not cut tracks prior to my arrival as promised. He didn't plan my trip according to the weather as promised. We ate frozen pizzas one night and store-bought frozen lasagna two nights. The lack of being prepared for me to drop-on-a-moments notice to enable this hunt to be successful is what really ruined my trip. Nate complained that I didn't tip after the trip was over; very unprofessional. We ran dogs on 2 tracks the 7 days that I was there; unfortunately for Nate, I wasn't investing any more of my hard earned money into this trip! I do not recommend using this outfitter. He is a complete 'fly by the seat of his pants' outfitter; very unprofessional and unprepared.

Unfortunately we got screwed by the weather on this one. I had gone up beforehand and checked snow conditions and things looked good but the forecast changed for the trip like it can sometimes. It pretty much snowed everyday and didn't stop which made it hard to find fresh tracks under the best of conditions. Regardless we did chase a big Tom on the last day, unfortunately it just didn't work out as we lost him in a huge canyon after an all day chase. The cat was taken the following week with another hunter and went in the 160 pound class. Didn't have any complaints during the trip about the food so unfortunately that part could of been an easy fix if I had known during the trip. Regrettable that we didn't get a cat this trip but it definitely wasn't due to lack of effort, everyone worked hard. In terms of preparation a lot had been done beforehand in getting equipment, fuel and supplies ready as well as checking snow conditions which respectably, I believe the hunter refuses to admit based on the fact that he unfortunately wasn't successful on this hunt.
