British Columbia Black Bear Hunt, Day 3

An avid deer and turkey hunter, I typically find myself donning camouflage when dawn is a distant dream. Not so here, where an extremely “early” wakeup for bear hunting would be 10 a.m.. In fact, that to is way too early, as we didn’t hunt until 2 p.m. But, being on Eastern Standard Time, 8 a.m. here is 11 a.m. at home, which would, indeed, be sleeping in. Besides, I was too excited to sleep any later. Why start so late? According to Leonard and Chad Schearer, a former full-time outfitter in Montana, bears aren’t as active in the morning as they are in the evening. You’re simply better off being well-rested and focused for the evening hunt than trying the marathon method of hunting from sunrise to sunset. Leonard, however, will allow you to make the decision.

British Columbia Black Bear Hunt, Day 1

Today, I set off on of what will serve as both my first springtime black bear hunt, as well as my first trip to British Columbia, Canada. Because of the destination, getting to camp, which is near Tatla Lake, involves multiple travel days; hence the reason today’s journey ends in Vancouver. The initial leg is from Washington Dulles International Airport (Northern Virginia) to Dallas/Ft. Worth (Texas), where I transferred to my connecting flight bound for Vancouver International Airport. After landing in Vancouver, I cleared Canadian Customs and attained my luggage and firearm, a CVA Scout in .35 Whelen, and proceeded to register the firearm (i.e. have the appropriate forms filled in, signed and stamped, after paying the required fee, of course), then headed to the hotel, where I’m going to be overnight.
