Hey guys toying around with booking a black bear hunt for next fall for here in the states. Any recommendations? Thanks. JB
The kind of hunt your after will help in recommendations. Spot/stalk, hounds or baited.Hey guys toying around with booking a black bear hunt for next fall for here in the states. Any recommendations? Thanks. JB
Joshua Rhodes of Eastern Ridge Adventures guides Hound hunts for Maine Black Bears as well...leaning toward a hound deal.
I second this. We did a boat based stalking hunt a few years ago,and it was truly a great experience. The stalks were difficult, and bears can scent you it seemed like miles away.I strongly recommend a spot and stalk hunt in Alaska or on Vancouver Island. Stalking bear, black and brown, is an amazing hunt!
Johnnyblues, check out Conman's. Much smaller outfit, nice folks, and much more reasonable prices. I've hunted tundra swans and turkeys with them. Dare to Hyde is way out of my price range too.Holy crap! Dare to Hyde gets 10k for their bear hunts PLUS a trophy fee over a certain weight. Nuts! I’ll save that money for Africa again!
Not a fan of bucket bears but did do one last Sept in Ontario/unguided for $500.I think I'll stick with my northern Ontario bear hunts for like $1350
Not the most exciting hunt you'll ever go on but very relaxing and with plenty of time to fish every morning before you go hunting. I went on a couple of spot and stalk bear hunts in BC when I was younger, a lot of fun and very rewarding but now that I'm a bit older I'm enjoying the fishing, relaxing and just hanging out with my friends a lot more. And when it's all said and done the bear rugs or mounts look the same.Not a fan of bucket bears but did do one last Sept in Ontario/unguided for $500.
