Jeff lander. He owns primitive outfitting in BC. We literally saw 100 bears a day. Absolutely amazing operation he has up there. Tell him Cody Witt sent you.

If you are interested in a fall gun hunt, check out Keg Country Outfitters in Alberta, Ca. Great outfit, reasonable pricing, 2 bear limit, color phases, very large bears, chance for a free wolf. Over 100% success rate. Spot and stalk over grain fields. Bears from miles of surrounding wilderness flock into the grain fields to fatten up before winter. I can’t imagine a better set up. Feel free to PM me for further info.

What's your budget and how far do you want to travel? Cont US, Canada, AK? All have bears, over baits, hounds, spot and stalk etc.

I can give your great recommendations on guys up here in AK. As a non resident you don't need to draw a tag with one in South Central, but for the huge bears in South East Prince of Wales its a draw, and about $8,000.00

How do you get over 100% success rate?

My Dad hunted up there two years ago. He loved it. I understand ownership has changed hands recently. Really big bears though and good pricing.

2 bear limit - so those that want more than one bear can usually take a second one.

If you can kill 2 bears, they base the percentage on a hunter killing A bear.
So, if there's 10 hunters in camp, 4 of them kill 1 bear, 4 of them kill 2 bears, and 2 of them don't kill, the percentage is still 120%.

Some outfitters even consider it success if you have a shot opportunity, not necessarily a kill.

As of about a month ago, last time I communicated with Leo H., ownership hadnít changed. He has worked there over 20 years I think, and bought out the previous outfitter 11 years ago I believe.

He got a call from the new owner last week saying he recently acquired the outfit from Leo and was offering discounted rates.

Black Bear Island Lodge. First rate operation and some the best fishing in Canada is included in your hunt. Huge pike and giant walleye. Weíve always had a 100% success rate with DJ and Dawn. Lots of color phase bears as well.
