Horseshoe Creek Outfitters offer Guided Black Bear Hunting
Typical coloration is black to cinnamon with a white blaze on the chest or
straight black. The snout is tan or grizzled with a straight or slightly convex
profile. The average weight for a Black Bear is 200-600 pounds.
One to five cubs are born in January to early February generally every second year.
The young weigh only one-half a pound at birth. This uniquely North American
bear is generally nocturnal and solitary. It is classed as a carnivore although
most of its diet consists of vegetation such as twigs, buds, leaves, nuts, roots,
various fruits, corn, and berries. They are also good fisherman and feed on
spawning salmon. Before winter it puts on a great supply of fat, then holes up
for the winter in a sheltered place. Hunting black bears is a popular sport, the
meat is eaten and often the hides are made into rugs.
Ray & Sharon Jackson have lived in the Peace River area of Northeastern British
Columbia for many years, and have been outfitting in the area since 1991.
They live as well as work in their hunting country year round, running their
own ranching operation in addition to outfitting. Ray has been guiding since 1978.
