Top recommendation for relaxing and inexpensive bear hunt. You’ll stay in a very nice 5000 sq ft lodge with the outfitter. Meals are unbelievable!

You fly into Saskatoon then drive 3 hours north to camp.

An outfitter we have worked with for over a decade partnered up with an outfitter from Northern Alberta. Spring hunts are baited and fall hunts are spot-n-stalk. Gary Bang took two good bears with his bow and had multiple stalking opportunities daily. The outfitter has nearly 6000 sq miles in his Northern Alberta area with the one of the highest densities of black bear in the province. Your hunt begins when you fly into High Level. For an action packed hunt, and if you enjoy world class waterfowl hunting, the fall hunt can also be combined where you can take liberal limits on Canadian Geese, snows and variety of ducks on morning hunts and then hunt bears in afternoon and evening.
May 5-12 or May 19-26. 6 day 2×1 black bear (spring or fall) $3500 Combination Waterfowl / fall bear 6 days $5950. $500 trophy fee on 2nd bear. Add 5% GST &approximately $300 in lic and tags.



A bowhunting only outfitter we booked for over a decade that offers a baited black bear hunt west of Fairbanks and north of Denali National park that has a very high success rate for P&Y bears. You will be flown from Fairbanks by bush plane where your camp will normally be tent camps and jet boats are used to access different bait sites with pre set stands. Hunts are conducted in June. It’s not unusual to see 8 to 10 bears at a setting, with 24 hours of daylight that time of year you hunt all night so no concern about nocturnal bears. They take 4 to 6 hunters per week. Second bear is available on a $500 trophy fee. Children under the age of 18 hunting with their parent are half price.
June 9-14 or 16-21. 6 day 1×1 $4200.
Rates include bush flights in and out.
Hunting license $85, bear tag $225.


British Columbia

This outfitter is hunting in northern BC along the coast and offers a 6-day lodge hunt with a high success rate.

This partnership is made up of avid bowhunters who cater to bowhunters. A 2nd bear is available on either hunt on a $2000 trophy fee plus license.
