North American Hunting
Coastal Black Bear in British Columbia

Coastal Black Bears roam the island and are hunted with fair chase, spot-and-stalk hunting tactics.

Located on North America’s Pacific Northwest, Vancouver Island is a blend of wild west coast and friendly people living and island lifestyle. Our outfitter’s exclusive 3,000 sq miles of guiding concessions offers the best of both worlds.

Getting to Vancouver Island is easy. There are regular connection flights from Vancouver to Port Alberni and other Island destinations. BC Ferries also serves south and mid-island destinations and Vancouver Island has a modern highway network linking its major population centers.

Blacktail Deer

Our outfitter’s recent acquisition of the best blacktail deer habitat on the island is allowing hunters to pursue these attractive coastal blacktails. Similar in stature to the Sitka deer, trophy island bucks carry antler configuration of 3x3 and 4x3 that score 80 to 120 points.

Blacktail rifle season opens in September and runs until December, with the prime hunting time the wet and stormy month of November during the rut. Hunts are conducted by 4 x 4, and by glassing and hiking. This hunt can be very challenging at times and is suitable for hunters in good physical condition. Hunts are 5-day, all inclusive and fully guided. Hunters can take 2 bucks.

1 x 1 - $6,500.00US
