Default Recommended Spot and Stalk Black Bear Guide

Hey all,

I suddenly find myself with a bunch of time on my hands this spring and was wondering if you had recommendations for guides that would take a resident spot and stalk hunting for black bear. I am Calgary so preferably not northern Alberta but i would consider anything. I have tried a couple of leads but they were fully booked given last minute request.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Why spending so much money, for something so easy and simple?

Guys, suggest a legitimate name for him to contact or just move on. If you have never hunted BB before getting someone who knows what they are doing to show you the ropes is not a bad idea, especially if you don't have quads, 4x4 etc to do it on your own. I know I used to float the Bow once or twice a year, always hired a guide with a boat. Way less grief than needing my own canoe, arranging pickup and return to launch, etc. I always took a guest so the guide supplied waders, rod, flys and everything else. On top of that, the guide was on the water 6 or 7 days a week and knew exactly what the fish were taking, where they were best fished etc. Far easier than ever trying to do all that on my own.

To the OP, sorry but everyone I know that would be an option is already booked. You might get lucky and find someone who isn't a guide but has experience by posting in the hunting partner sticky.

If you're in the Grand Prairie area give me a p.m. I can show you lots of spots to spot and stalk bears

Take up bow hunting in the 300 zones, I bumped into a black bear or more for 5 weeks straight last fall, closest bear 5 yards furthest 50 yards. Black lighting when you spoke them. Never wanted to shot one but there are tons.
