if i were going all the way across the Atlantic to shoot a bear(assuming black bear) I would look into an outfitter in Alaska or B.C. , for quantity and quality of bears. Just my opinion.

I would agree with going to alaska or B.C. I would look into Prince of Wales in southeast Alaska. I have hunted there before and there are alot of nice bears. I do a D.I.Y. hunt. I am headed back in may 2010!!!
Muskeg Excursions and Annahootz Alaskan Adventures are 2 of the best outfitters on the island.
You will want to be there in the middle part of may. This seems to be the best time to catch them coming out of hibernation.

Re: Advice for First time bear hunter

You could try to make very good friends with someone on her and do a host guided hunt, all your friend has to do is apply for his c guiding license and fill out some papers for him and you and then you can save yourself some money as all you would have to do is pay for flights and your licenses. You will probably save yourself ten thousand dollars. Do a search for canadian hunter/host hunting, see wat it turns up.

Re: Advice for First time bear hunter

lots of great ground for spot and stock type hunting on the oregon side of the snake river. DIY or contact the guys at cornucopia outfitters out of Halfway Oregon for hunts there or in the Imnahas. eastern oregon is home for me and usually things tend to cost alot less over there. make sure your in shape its STEEP country but i have great success on bear there.
