Alberta Fall Black Bear & Waterfowl Combo 10818
Your hunting the famed Peace country farm corridor, a huge patchwork of farmland following the mighty Peace River as it winds its way through Alberta. You are at the northern end of the farmland, an area with one of the highest densities of black bears in the world. It is a good thing too, as you have two bear tags in your pocket to fill this week.
There is something to be said about waking up at 5am to a steaming cup of coffee, setting out a hundred decoys and shooting a limit of Canadas and speckle bellies before the sun has finished rising. The sounds of hundreds, thousands of birds circling the blinds, ducks streaking in from the side and a group of friends grinning like schoolkids when the final bell rings. The smell of gunpowder from the last volley still wafts through the air as a new flock of geese locks into the decoys.
Three hours later your standing at full draw, waist deep in a farmer’s oat field having a stare down with a solid four-hundred-pound black ball of claws and teeth a mere eighteen yards away. The bear hears your heart pounding, whirls and runs before you touch the release. Its ok though as its only still the first day of the hunt. This was the third bear you have seen today and there is thirty minutes of daylight remaining. Off in the distance another bear walks out of the trees into the standing oats. He looks like a shooter.
This fall combination hunt with this Outfitter is often overlooked and underrated. It’s an action-packed week with plenty of shooting and camaraderie. They can accommodate up to 6 hunters per week for this hunt so bring your friends and fill the camp.
Included in the price of the hunt is 6 days of bear hunting and 5 days of waterfowl hunting, all food and accommodations in the camp, 12 gauge high velocity steel shot for the waterfowl hunts, guiding services, bird cleaning, skinning of bears, washer and dryer use, all ground transportation to and from High Level airport, and shotgun rentals
