British Columbia Spring Black Bear Hunt

This lodge-based hunt is a great choice if you’re looking for a great black spring bear hunt in British Columbia.

Our area offers a very healthy population of black and color-phased bears, making it a perfect location for spectacular BC bear hunting trips. The bears range in size from 5 to 7 1/2 feet with some weighing as much as 500 lbs. Bears are dying of old age. They do have the fish component and they can get fairly large.

The success rate for this British Columbia hunt 100% to date.

  • This is a spot and stalk hunt from 4×4’s, boats and/or horses.
  • Wolf hunts can be included in this hunt as well.
  • Our spring bear hunt begins in mid-May and runs through the beginning of June when the temperature is between the mid 60’s and mid 70’s.
  • The fall hunt runs from mid-September to the end of October when the mornings will be frosty; when the weather gets cold the bears are gone. In the fall you can combo with moose.This bear, moose combo hunt takes place during the prime moose rut from mid-September to the end of October, when the moose are responding to calling.  To find big bulls in BC you gotta be with the right outfitter in the right area.
