What makes a good black bear outfitter?
Although there are many people who like to organize black bear hunting trips, it seems that in the recent period the number of those who prefer to use the help of a hunting outfitter is rapidly growing. So, it is no surprise why there are so many black bear hunting outfitters in Canada today. However, this doesn’t mean that each of them provides the same quality of service. If you are interested in hunting black bears and enjoying the beautiful surrounding where these bears live, you need to find a good outfitter. This activity might take some time, but it is definitely worth it. Before you start your search, you must be sure about the location where you want to hunt, how many days you can stay, your budget and what kind of service you are looking for.
When you get answers to all these questions, you can start your search for a black bear hunting outfitter. Now let’s highlight some of the things that make a good black bear outfitter.
First of all, you need to look for outfitters that have experience in this field. There are many people who have vast theoretical knowledge, but zero practice. Try to avoid these outfitters. Stick to people who know the terrain and people who have already helped dozens of hunters. Their experience can help you locate black bears fast and improve your results. Of course, we don’t have to mention that the outfitter you are interested in should follow a permit system.
Furthermore, a good black bear hunting outfitter will offer more than just a drop off camp hunt option. They can also go together with the hunters on their trip if requested. This depends on your personal requirements and needs, but it is good to have such option in case you are a beginner.
Next, take a closer look at their success rate. Whilst it is true that you cannot judge their competence by looking only at these numbers, they can surely help you with your research. Good black bear hunting outfitters usually have trophy animals in their collection as a sign of their success.
If you are interested in the service of some black bear outfitter you should also ask them about their area knowledge. They need to possess in-depth understanding of the land on which they provide services, weather conditions, where do black bears usually dwell etc. In addition, they should also provide some information about the safety measures they take while doing their job. Finally, they need to have some knowledge and experience when it comes to providing first aid. Black bear hunting can sometimes be very dangerous and we all know how aggressive black bears can be (which actually makes this type of hunting even more interesting).
