About this hunt

The black bears on Vancouver Island have been classified as a distinct subspecies because of their long time separation from the mainland population. Our bears are all black with no color phases, yet, approximately 50% will have a white patch of varying sizes on their chest. Skulls and bodies are typically blockier than their mainland cousins and many of the bears we take will break the 7’ square mark. The terrain within our vast hunting area varies greatly from steep and rocky logging areas to lush tidal flats along the ocean. All of our hunts are spot and stalk since baiting is illegal in BC. Your experienced guide will be with you at all times, both to ensure your safety, and to inform and advise you on the habits, age, size and sex of each of the many black bears you will see.

Where you will hunt

Territory

The coastal area and in particular the islands have the highest density of black bears in BC due to the abundance of rich food and mild climate. This means that our area has one of the highest densities of black bears in all of North America! What does all this mean for our clients? We see a lot of bears! Whether photographing or hunting, when the weather is good and the bears are out it is possible to see as many as a dozen bears a day! We have maintained nearly 100% success on opportunities for the last 20 years with few exceptions.
