Trophy Hunting Helps Bear Cub Survival.


Mike’s Outfitting has guided black bear hunts since 1992 along the Peace River in Alberta, Canada.

Our hunting area is perfect bear habitat. The lush woods, farm crops and big game animals gives plenty for the bears to eat, grow fast and end up bigger than a wilderness bear. The huge river valley funnels traveling male bears right to our bait sites.

We only take 6 hunters per week in our lodge with 30 very active bait sites. We have taken dozens of huge bodied, record book bears, most of them in the last few years. This is due to our Quality Bear Management System where we attract as many bears as possible to each bait site, let them grow up on the site, become conditioned to the baiting, then we selectively harvest the big, male bears. We use a large volume and variety of bait consisting of beavers, meat scraps, popcorn, oats, candy, honey and grease and we never let it run out. This is a key element to a great bear hunt where you get to see several bears almost every evening.

We strive to get every hunter a mature record book bear or two.

All of our bait sites are set up with a 15-20 yard shot or a 2 person, bear proof, wood box, ground blind. Our bait sites are cribbed to position the bear to give bow hunters a broadside shot, greatly lessening the chance of wounding a bear. We strive to get every hunter a mature record book bear or two.

We review trail camera pictures and bear videos with you before your hunt and we have markers at the bait so even a novice hunter is able to sort through all the bears and pick out the big boar. We strongly discourage shooting a female bear or even a small bear because it can greatly reduce the bear activity and spook off a big, smart, old boar. We don’t shoot bears just because they are colored, they still need to be a mature boar. If you absolutely want to make sure you go home with a bear then we have non-big bear baits where you can take a smaller bear and then go to a trophy hunting bait after securing your first bear. There is a trophy fee on the 2nd bear though.

“Thank You Mike and your excellent guides! I had a great time, seen 28 bears including that giant at the beaver dam bait which was bigger than Randy’s 350 pound chocolate bear. You run a super good bear camp, the best one I have been to out of 10 bear hunts. My guide Cody worked really hard for me. Your bear camp is run AAA++++ THANKS VERY MUCH for my hunt.”

The warm family atmosphere makes a hunt much more gratifying for me. Best of success for great hunting this year. Let’s stay in touch. “

“I have been on many hunts all over the place, and this was one of the best hunts I have been on. I saw 17 bears in 5 days of hunting. The last of which was a 388 lb boar with a 20 inch skull I shot at 20 yards. My brother in law shot a blonde and a large cinnamon bear.You can’t go wrong with Mike.”
