Nice bears! Congrats to all the successful hunters.
More beautiful bears! Thanks for posting on here !
If you are looking for a chance to see a lot of bear you would not be disappointed going with Babine Guide Outfitters. In the fall of 2021 after my mountain goat hunt while I was looking to try and get a moose we seen over 20 bears and a couple of dandies. They are a top notch outfit.
A few more of the bears from this week
This looks awesome, and I'm 100% certain would be a blast but is sure a lot of $$$ for a black bear! yikes! Im sure though that the quality of the experience is excellent.
It's alot of money no doubt,I've fortunately been on several Canadian bear hunts and haven't cracked the 20" mark yet, i absolutely love hunting bear in the spring, adding up my hunts in $$$ is not an option I don't want to know...but damn, those are some monsters.
We don't get very 20 inch plus bears. Just some big bodies. Out of 34 bears this spring we only had 2 that broke 20 inches
Here's our last bear for the spring season that we got last night. Could have gotten it on the bay up with a bow.
