Outfitter #268

Vancouver Island Black Bear Hunting Lodge


Known worldwide as a hunting destination, Vancouver Island offers some of the very best trophy black bear hunting on the planet. This outfitter operates an exclusive guide concession on the west coast of Vancouver Island, in a hunting territory comprised of miles of ocean shoreline, clear rivers and tall mountains. The Black bear population of Vancouver Island is so unique, that Safari Club International recently gave these bears a special classification and now refers to them as Island Black Bear. The designation was placed on them because of their special diet, traits and size. Island hunters usually see multiple bears every day and it is not uncommon to see up to 8 or 10 bears in a single day. The guides here are expert at judging bears and will work with you to decide which ones a taker and which one should be left to grow. Many bears in the 19"+ range are taken every season and this outfitter is very successful with getting SCI record book bears for his hunters. Most hunts are conducted as day trips in 4x4 vehicles, boats or ATV's. The occasional overnight trip occurs in some remote locations to ensure hunting to last light and to find a great bear. Deluxe accommodations and superb meals are provided in a beautiful, log lodge, with full modern conveniences and private baths for each bedroom. #268
