The BC government commissioned a recent study to identify the location of high quality habitats that are rich in bear food and other ecological requirements. The Grizzly Basin area received the highest rating for its ability to support black and grizzly bears.
We consistently achieve 90+% success rate on these bruins, with a good percentage of cinnamon and other color phase bears. We hunt by spot and stalk method and occasionally use predator calls. We mostly use horses to access a number of drainages and avalanche areas.
We also offer hound hunting for bears. Our guides have tremendous passion for using hounds to hunt for bears and other predators and have many years experience in leading successful hunts for black bear. We also takes great pride in our pack of hounds, which are extremely well trained.
You have the option of booking a hound-only bear hunt, or, if available can add hound hunting for a day or two as part of a spot and stalk hunt (an extra fee applies). Many hunters who try hound hunting for a day get immediately hooked. Watching the expert hounds do their magic and becoming part of their team is incredibly exciting. Please call to inquire about availability and fees for hound hunting for bears.
With moderate weather, snowcapped mountains and sounds of spring, this is a beautiful time to be in the mountains — and a great cure-all for the pangs of withdrawal suffered at the end of the previous year's fall's hunt. And with long days, our clients generally like to hunt early morning and evening, and rest or go fishing during the day.
In the fall, you can hunt bear by itself, or in combination with Elk, Moose, Deer, or Mountain Goat.
