ALBERTA, CANADA BLACK BEAR HUNTING OUTFITTERS Black Bear Bowhunting
Alberta Black Bear Bow Hunts We have been providing black bear bowhunts in Alberta for over 16
big bruin blacks and colored bears, no bugs, 5 star lodge, eat like
a king and sleep like a rock - that's what you can expect when you
come black bear bowhunting with North Star Outfitters! Our bear bowhunting area is about 500,000 acres. I own 90% of the
permits therefore I hold the key to managing the black bear bowhunting
in this area. I have 50% color phase bears and 25% of our bears
harvested are over 7ft. We have a 2 bear per hunter quota but I
only allow you to harvest 1 - 6 ft colored and the other must be
black if you choose to harvest the 2nd bear.
We take 24
bear hunters with about 5-6 hunters per week in ranch country just
north of the rich farmland where the food is very plentiful.
During your black bear
bowhunts, you will see between 4-8 bears in a evening and in a full
week you will see up towards of 30-40 bears. Our
bowhunting season runs the same time as our rifle bear hunts; from
the 15th of April until the 15th of June. All our bowhunts are over
bait with bait sites at a minimum of 4 miles apart. Shooting distances
from stands for bow hunters are from 20-25 yds.
Every one thinks bowhunting
black bears over bait is like shooting fish in a barrel, well if
it was only about killing that might be the case. But harvesting
a trophy bear takes careful placement of stands to outsmart the
trophy bears we want. Most trophy bears are at least 7 years old
or older so you can imagine how many times this bear has come to
know how to eat every well and be safe.
