About this trip

Copper River Outfitters Black Bear Hunts

Our area has some of the best black bear habitat available in BC. The large network of roads, cutblocks, aspen slopes and salmon-filled rivers makes this region a bear paradise. The rich vegetation combined with the abundance of fish protein, produces large bears with good skulls. 6’ - 7’ ; bears are average, with a few in the 7 1/2’ class. Skull sizes from 18”-21” are common.

During the spring season, we focus on prime hunting dates from mid-May into June. The bears are just out of hibernation and the coats are at their very best. These hunts have been traditionally 100% for 1 bear with many clients taking 2. Clients will see an abundance of other wildlife in the beautiful coastal mountains. Lakes, rivers, glaciers, waterfalls and high rocky peaks are just a glimpse of what to expect.

The trips are 7 days including your arrival and departure days. The hunt is great for rifle, archery or muzzle-loader. Hunts are offered as a 2-on-1 or 1-on-1 if you prefer. After a successful trip, clients enjoy self-guided fishing and day tours of the local area. This is a great trip for clients from North America as well as around the world.
