Description: This outfitter offers guided rifle and archery black hunts during the spring bear and fall bear hunting seasons in the Peace River Region of Alberta, Canada. They hunt in a two tag, bear baiting area and have a tremendous success rate on our bear hunts.
Hunters can anticipate multiple bear sightings each night in the stand with possible opportunities at a variety of bears, including bears in the black, chocolate, cinnamon, and blonde color variations. Success on bear hunts is due to the abundance of bears in our area and the effort the outfitter and their guides put into the hunts. They annually establish a number of new bear bait sites to spread the hunting pressure throughout our 1800 sq. mile hunting area. As well, there is a minimum of three or four active bear bait sites per hunter and each week the bear hunters get fresh bait sites that have not been hunted yet.
You won't be hearing nearby road traffic from our bear bait sites; most are remote, ATV accessed, and spaced a minimum of 2 miles apart. These efforts are very labor intensive. By using ladder style stands they are able to readily relocate stand and bait sites as conditions dictate, place a couple clients readily at any site, and enjoy the safety and relative comfort of these stands. They have taken many elusive, large bears by simply relocating the stand at a particular site.
This destination offers guaranteed tags and quality guided bear hunts. They maintain an honest interest and offer personalized "hands on" service. Join us for your next Alberta black bear hunting adventure in Alberta.
Accommodations: All big game hunts offered by this outfitter are operated out of their base camp. Sleeping accommodations are in a wooden framed, aluminum sided, multi-room bunkhouse. Each room has wooden framed beds with mattresses, forced air heating, and comfortably sleeps 2-3 clients. The washhouse has hot/cold running water with shower, sink, and flush toilet.
The dining and kitchen units are canvas tents over wooden frames and floors, complete with microwave, television, DVD, and VHS. Just about like home! They have electrical service in all units. Camp options on some hunts include overnight or weeklong excursions to remote tent camps.

1. Fly into Edmonton, Alberta and rent a vehicle for the approx. 4.5 hour drive into our camp on paved, well maintained roads.

Gear and Weather: Your personal hunting gear will vary on the season and species you are hunting. In Alberta, there is no requirement to wear high-visibility clothing (such as red or blaze orange) while hunting. Contact us to discuss details.
The base camp hunts include all bedding, towels, non-personal toiletries, etc. Spike camps will require you to purchase or bring a sleeping bag & pillow. The old saying "if you don't like the weather now, wait 10 minutes, it will change" definitely applies to Alberta weather! You should always be prepared for the worst.
