Default Bear Outfitter Recommendation Request

Hi guys. Iím just starting the nerve racking process of trying to find a guided black bear hunt. Anybody that has ever searched for an outfitted hunt knows how worrisome this process can be. Iíve been on a few guided hunts but never for bear. Iíve heard of and read many horror stories of terrible hunts and bad outfitters and I want to do anything and everything I can to avoid a bad experience.

Iím interested in Minnesota, Ontario, or Manitoba. Iím sure there are pluses and minuses for each area and would be interested in learning more about what those would be. Iím looking for a fall 2012 hunt with a very reputable, first class operation. I donít need a record book bear, but would like to hunt somewhere that would give me a good opportunity at a mature 300+ pound animal. Any first hand experience recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

If you ever add New Brunswick in your choice contact me. I have as good of an outfitter for bear in New Brunswick as you will find.

Thanks SJ Adventures. Maybe someday I'll be looking over that way and will keep your offer in mind.

Hi Spruceswamp. I'm usually a do-it yourself bear hunter. But, with time constraints this year, I'm going with this Ontario outfitter. http://ultimatebearhunts.ca/ I actually met the guy who operates it caribou hunting in Quebec. I believe, from what I saw, he'll put on a good hunt. You could give him a call and see what you think.

Try Garrett Brothers out of Alberta. They use jet boats to get way up the river to hunt for Giant bear and good percent are color phased. You can even add another bear to your hunt like many do. I hunted with Pat and his dad Lorne and they are great people to hunt with. Check out their site Garrett Brothers.com
