COASTAL BLACK BEAR
Vancouver Island, BC
When considering the best place for a black bear hunt, hunting coastal black bears on Vancouver Island ranks #1. Long renowned for the size and abundance of black bears, hunting on Vancouver Island is a bucket list hunt for many hunters. Our Vancouver Island Guide Outfitters operation is known through out the hunting community for its great service, excellent hunting, and safe and ethical practices.
Accommodation on our hunts range from the luxurious Riverside Lodge, to well appointed cabins, or full-service hotels. We host our hunters based on the desires of the guest and the location of the best hunting options. Meals at the Riverside are prepared and served by our in-house chef. We also use restaurants for local fare, and home cooked meals with the guides for small personal groups. Lunches are provided in the field.
Spring and Fall Bear Hunts
Spring black bear hunts are from April 1 to June 15. Early season hunts are conducted on the ocean beaches and estuaries, and low elevation mountain slopes. Hunting is by 4×4’s, boats, and hiking.
Fall hunts from September 10 to October 30 focus on the many salmon streams that flow across Vancouver Island. Using boats, hiking and 4×4’s, hunters access the incredibly scenic and natural world that is a salmon spawning stream in the fall. Watch the eagles, gulls and of course bears gorge on the thousands of salmon the return each year.
