trophy Black Bear hunting in Alberta Canada Bearpaw Professional Outfitting Services  Peace River Alberta Canada. Guiding for White tailed deer, Black Bear, Moose and Elk.

Bearpaws' Spring Bear hunt was one of our best to date. 44 Hunters harvested 68 Bears for another 150% season.

13 Bears exceeding 7" were taken. Putting our average above 2 7' Bears per week.

Our average Bear taken was 6'3" that is an exceptionally high number.

33% of the Bears taken were colored other than black.

We had 3 unsuccessful hunters in 2002 all of which passed on bears, looking for the elusive 7' Black Bear.

SPRING 2002 HIGHLIGHTS

Anyone who was in Alberta this spring knows it was one of the coldest springs on record. Many nights the temperatures dipped below freezing. Our hunts were successful due to the perseverance of our clients and the effort of our guiding staff. 3 wolves were taken on this hunt.

Rick Shannon took a 7' Bear on our first Hunt with Veteran Chris Gilbert. Ed Werner and James Lugo, first time hunters with Bearpaw took a pair of 7" Boars late in their hunt.

Dennis Pendleton did the "unthinkable" with a 7'7 and 7'8 in the three nights of hunting (First time Bear Hunting). Check out our photo gallery for these two bears!

Father and Son Jim and Dan Studer took 2 Monster Boars with Guy Bruneau. A 7'5 Brown and a massive 7'11 Black 20 year old bruiser on their last night hunting.

Our last hunt was really strong. Doug Raspberry and Mike Vlahovic each took 7' bears.

We rounded out the season with 16 year old Derek Johnson taking a 6'10 and 7' Pope and Young not bad for his first 2 bears.

I cannot say enough about my staff. Special thanks to Guy Bruneau 11 years, Bowen Dohan 7 years, Chris Gilbert 5 years, Chris Broster 2 years and Shawn Raymond 1 year. To a great season.
