Black Bear Hunts

Legacy Outdoors offers high-quality hunts for black bears throughout Canada and the United States.  We only work with the most reputable black bear hunting outfitters in a region.   We have been helping hunters find the best black bear hunts for a long time.   When it comes to black bear hunting, things can change over time. We constantly keep up with our outfitters and their hunting areas and many other factors that can affect black bear hunting success.  We can help you find the best hunts where you have the best chance of success at harvesting a trophy black bear. 

Choosing the type of Black Bear Hunt

Black bear hunters have a wide variety of options when it comes to hunting black bears. So, before we can find the perfect hunt for you, we need to learn more about you and what type of bear hunt you’re looking for. Do you want to harvest one or two bears? Do you want to hunt with a bow, crossbow, muzzleloader or rifle? Are you looking for a Boone and Crocket caliber bear or Pope and Young possibly? Are you wanting a chance at harvesting a color phase bear? Do you want to spot and stalk, hunt over bait, or possibly hunt bears using hounds? No matter what kind of bear hunt you’re looking for we got you covered.

When to Hunt Black Bears!

Black bear hunts usually take place in spring or fall.  The fur on bears is great in the spring and it’s a perfect time of year to chase bears – generally nice weather and very few other species in season make this a perfect warm-up (no pun intended!) for your hunting season.  Some states and provinces only have fall bear seasons.  Bears are starting to bulk up for the winter and often you may have the option to hunt other animals on the same trip.

Best Places to Hunt Trophy Black Bear!

Legacy Outdoors represents many of the best black bear outfitters in North America.  Below you will find some info on the most popular locations to hunt black bears.   If you don’t see a particular location you want to hunt bears, just give us a call!  There are so many areas we can’t list them all.

Canada Black Bear Hunts

Canada has some of the best black bear hunting in the world. The large vast areas with good black bear habitat lead to good populations of quality black bears. Black bears are found in almost every province of Canada. The western provinces usually have more color phase black bears, like brown, cinnamon, and blond. Some provinces allow the hunting of bears over bait, while some only allow spot and stalk style black bear hunting. Trophy quality is excellent with a real possibility of bringing a bear home approaching both Boone and Crockett all time score and 7 foot.

Alaska Black Bear Hunts

Black bear hunts in Alaska are very productive, either as a single species or combination hunt.  We offer boat-based hunts as well as lodge or spike camp options.  We have areas in Alaska where 7-foot black bear are taken regularly. 

Lower 48 Black Bear Hunts

Black bear hunts in the lower 48 don’t always seem as exciting as the northern hunts, but there are actually many great options from rough backcountry hunts to easy stand hunts in easy terrain. Some of the eastern hunts have incredibly large bears. Out of hundreds of Boone and Crocket entries over the past 10 years, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania lead the entries by a fair amount, but guided opportunities are typically greater in the Western US – with several states and types of hunts and hunting methods to choose from.
