Since using bait for hunting bears is prohibited in B.C., we are hunting in our areas by means of pick-up trucks, ATV and riverboat or as spot and stalk hunt. This method of Black Bear hunting needs of course much more personal input and efforts, than the method where it is allowed to use bait and of course this has its reflects to the prices we have to charge in B.C., if compared to prices in other parts of Canada where bait hunt is allowed. With our method of hunting Black Bears we can also take into consideration the condition of the guest hunters, so we can provide an easy, as well as an exhausting hunt, just what the guests pleases more.
Because of the high quantity of Black Bears that will be sighted, we can select upon the quality of the fur, size and color. About 80% of the Black Bears are really black, whereas the remaining 20% vary from dark brown over cinnamon to blond.
Every guest hunter can acquire two Black Bear licenses, where success for a second bear is very likely.
