Black Bear & Grizzly Bear Hunts

Black bears are North America's most familiar and common bears. Despite their name, black bears can be blue-gray or blue-black, brown, cinnamon, or even, very rarely, white. Solitary animals, black bears roam large territories, though they do not protect them from other bears.

The Grizzly Bear is a North American subspecies of the Brown Bear. These awe-inspiring giants tend to be solitary animals Grizzlies are typically brown, though their fur can appear to be white-tipped, or grizzled, lending them their traditional name.

Grizzlies are hunted only in the spring around mid May. "Spot & Stalk" methods are used for both Grizzly Bears and Black Bears. Interior mountain Grizzly Bears and Black Bears are well known for their colour variations. We have a healthy population of both bears, but a limited number of tags for Grizzlies.
