Good day all,

I am looking for a guided black bear hunt in 2023 in the western US or Canada. I attempted a DIY spot and stalk hunt in the Idaho pan handle this spring without any luck. I was wondering if you all had any recommendations for an outfitter. I would prefer to hunt spot and stalk. TIA

Have you considered Alaska?
 
I have a hunt booked for April 2023 with Sean Lingl with Canadian Guide Outfitters on Vancouver Island.
He was also Dallas Safari Club Outfitter of the year in 2013. He has a great operation .
 
Have hunted with BC Trophy Mountain Outfitters several times over the last decade plus. Great folks, comfortable camp, beautiful country, and lots of bears. Around 40% - 50% will be color phased. All spot and stalk spring bear hunting, and you will see at least a dozen boars in a week of hunting. A second can be taken for a very reasonable trophy fee.


My best
Bear Hunt Chilcotin Mountains

Bridge River drainage where you will hunt.

Beautiful bear. Is BC Trophy Mountain Outfitters affiliated with Trophy Mountain Outfitters in Wyoming?
 
Certainly would!

I have always hunted diy as a resident in Alaska. However there are a lot of really good operators. I would focus from Prince William Sound South.
 
Alberta has big black bear and a high percentage of color phase. One of the advantages is that you are allowed 2 bears in this province. I have shot several bears over 7ft and got the 2005 record. I had always hunted in the spring and wolf tag were available over the counter also. Good luck with your decision. Remember to look for small ears and short legs. Small bears by comparison look gangly and have Mickey Mouse ears.
 
We've killed over 3 dozen blackies in AK, all DIY. As well as taking one over 400lbs in Ontario on a self-guided hunt. More then willing to pass on the area(s) info in either one of those locations.
PM me if you would like to visit.

Appreciate it! I’ll get with you tomorrow via pm
 
Alaska is nice but I saw tons of black bears driving in north BC. I think a hunt there would be cheaper. There are outfits who can drive you to good hunting areas with a pickup instead of using an airplane or boat to get you way out. You don't actually have to be 20 miles into to wilderness to find a black bear. They are pretty adaptable.
 
A big thank you to @BnC 04 and all other commenters. You are all very helpful and make AH the great place it is
Was great visiting with you. Get a hold of me anytime as im always up to talk bear hunting
 
White mountain Apache Indian reservation has numerous huge bears and a lot of color phase nears. Try to hunt them when they’re in the prickley
pears. Also a chance for a second bear if desired.
 
I went with NM Hunting Addiction in 2021. These guys are some incredible houndsmen and have lots of bears.


I'm a dog guy and love any kind of hunting which utilizes them.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?
Thanks,
Gary (Just down the road in Springfield)

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
