What To Bring On Your Alberta Black Bear Hunt
Black Bear Hunt
Daylight in Northern Alberta in the month of May is about 18 hours. The weather can vary at this time of year. You may experience some freezing temperatures, snow squalls or it may be as high as 70-80°F. You should bring layers of clothes, rain gear and good boots. There will be some mosquitoes and occasionally black flies, so don't forget a head net. A good pair of warm gloves, head cover and goggles to protect your eyes from the dust & debris are recommended for the long, cold ride on the ATV's coming back to camp from the stands, which maybe up to 20 miles.

Black Bear Trophy Care
The Guides are highly trained in tracking and recovering your animals. They will make every effort to care for your trophy. After the recovery, quality field photos will be taken for your lasting memories. On some occasions, the Guides may even be able to sit with you in the stand (your choice) to video your hunt.
Your Trophy Black Bear will be skinned with care and placed in one of their many freezers, along with the skull and meat; if you choose to keep these. You will be provided with a Rubbermaid leak proof type container to transport your hide(s)/meat home with you in a frozen condition. Should you want an ice chest or such type of cooler, you will have to bring this with you to Camp. The Guides may salt the hides in the remote fly-in camp.
