Coastal Black bear

B.C. is known as bear country for it’s high populations of black bears (estimated at 150, 000 animals) with the most dense areas being the northwest coast. Coastal bears are slightly larger than mainland bears as they thrive in the temperate rainforest. The omnivorous animals become active in April, waking from their hibernation to feed on shell fish  and ocean grasses in the estuaries before moving to higher country later in the spring to feed on lush berries and mountain grasses. 


This abundant population of black bears allows for a 2 bear quota, and a very high hunter success rate. The bears that are harvested are in the 6-7 foot range with skull sizes ranging from 17-21 inches

Ocean Black Bear

The ocean black bear hunt is a hunting experience like no other. Accommodated on our 38 foot ocean boat, hunters spot and stalk mature black bears feeding in coastal estuaries by day and wine and dine on the freshest, finest seafood the ocean has to offer. This is a 7 day hunt taking place in early spring in the calm protected channels off of the B.C. coast.

The Boat

The 38 foot base camp sleeps 6, the Captain/cook, 2 guides and 3 hunters. A full kitchen and fresh seafood allows us to serve the most decadent camp food that you will ever experience on a hunting trip. Travelling calm waters of closed channels makes this a relaxing hunt and a truly unique experience

Lodge Black Bear

This hunt offers the same opportunity at large B.C. coastal black bears but from the comfort of solid ground. Accommodation is provided in a cozy mountain lodge, and terrain is accessed by quads. This laid back experience is a great family/group hunt, or an introductory to the B.C. backcountry.
