Fella called me and offered to give me a free bear hunt if I could find someone to go at full price along with me. Well, folks that know me, (and the fella that called also knows) I can't do that so it's two (2) half price black bear hunts in northern Alberta.
Hunt cost USD $1,500. Hunter pay their own way to Edmonton and is picked up on Sunday for the trip to camp (near Ft McMurray). Hunt for one (1) week and return to Edmonton on Sunday for the flight back (late Sunday or Monday).
Two (2) bears and I believe a complimentary wolf/coyote tag.
We'll sleep in tents, temps could be near freezing or up in the 60's or both!
We'll have two (2) hunts to choose from, 23 to 30 May or 30 May to 06 June.
The hunt will be over bait in a new remote area, I've been told there'll be plenty of bears and probably some big ones.
Last time I did one of these half price hunts I shot a nice 7ft bear.
The lucky (I guess he felt lucky) other hunter found the hunt here on this board and got two bears (not giants but he filled both his tags).
I'm not 100% sure I'm going as I have a sniper shoot scheduled for the weekend of 29 and 30 May that I'd need to cancel out on. Just fishing to see if I could find a hunting partner.
I'd probably take a bow along and try for one that way and also carry along a rifle or two or three for those wolves and such.
