British Columbia Black Bear Hunt 10609
In BC baiting bears is illegal, but it’s not something to complain about. This black bear hunts is a spot and stalk and have featured a 100% harvest opportunity for years. It’s not uncommon for baited bear hunts to be 100%, but why not do a spot and stalk hunt that is 100 times the excitement with the same success on 6 foot or better bears? If a big black bear is what you are looking for then spring (late May-mid June) is the time to come up to Northern BC. In the springtime the bears have just emerged from the den and are hungry for green grass. The roadsides and south facing cutblocks is where they will be found making this a hunt that anyone regardless of age or physical ability will enjoy. In addition to the concentration of good high quality feed, the bears are also in the rut in the spring and you can see see big boars at this time of year that you can rarely see at any other time of the year. This hunt is on a 2 bear limit and most hunters will kill a 6 foot or better bear, with several going 7 foot plus. Having just emerged from the den the bears still have their full winter coats at this time of year. These bears are generally all black with many of them having the classic white “V” on their chest. Color phase bears range from cinnamon to a dark chocolate brown. Color phase harvest rates vary year to year, but overall the black bear harvest average is 10% color phase.
