BC Black Bear Hunts

View our Video

At Opatcho Lake we are extremely successful hunting black bears with both rifle and archery equipment. Our territory varies from river bottoms, agricultural lands (which green up first) to high elevation country and alpine. This means we always have excellent hunting conditions. All hunting is done by “spot and stalk”, hunting old roads, burns and clear cuts.

Spring Black Bear hunts are conducted between May 1 – June 15.  At that time the pelts are in prime condition.

BC Bear Hunt

Spring Black Bear hunts offer bowhunters incredible opportunities for a trophy animal. Our hunting territory is perfect for spot and stalk type hunting. Most bowhunters have several stalk opportunites daily.

Our Fall Black Bear hunts are conducted between Aug 15 – Oct 1 and are usually part of a combination hunt with Deer, Grizzly, Wolf or Moose.

Color phase Bears are very common.

A Satisfied CustomerTestimonial: I hunted with Ken and Crystal Watson of Opatcho Lake Outfitters in September 2010 for black bears and had a wonderful time. It was my first black bear hunt and I was amazed, by not only the number of bears I saw, but also the size of some of the bears and how close we were able to get to them. I harvested a great bear. The camp was extremely comfortable and the food was great. I can't say enough about Opatcho Lake Outfitters and am looking forward to hunting with them again soon!
