Horseshoe Creek Outfitters offer Guided Grizzly Bear Hunting


Grizzly Bear Update

JANUARY 2019

      In December of 2018 the British Columbia Government closed all Grizzly Bea Hunting in the
Province with the exception of First Nations. All BC Outfitters have gone through the 2018
Hunting Season with NO GRIZZLY BEAR HUNTING.

December 19, 2018; A Class Action law suit has been filed against this decision with the BC Supreme Court. This lawsuit filed by Ron Flemming of Love Bros. & Lee will be costly and time consuming. The suit alleges the decision was taken for inappropriate reasons, without regards to proper wildlife management practices, and with the knowledge that the decision would cause harm to Guide Outfitters. We (Guide Outfitters Association of BC) (Ron Fleming) believe that to manage wildlife properly, all species must be managed. Choosing to not manage Grizzly Bears will have unintended consequences.

Grizzly Bear

This large animal reaches weights of 300-1500 pounds. The coat color ranges from shades of blond, brown, black or a combination of these; the long outer guard hairs are often tipped with white or silver giving it a grizzled appearance hence the name. The grizzly has a large hump over the shoulders which is a muscle mass used to power the forelimbs in digging. The head is large and round with a concave facial profile. In spite of their mass size this bear runs at speeds of up to 35 mph.

The grizzly bear is primarily nocturnal and in the winter puts on up to 400 pounds of fat, becoming very lethargic. Although they are not true hibernators and can be woken easily, they like to den up in a protected spot, such as a cave, crevice or hollow log during the winter months. Being omnivores, they feed on a variety of plants and berries including roots or sprouts and fungi as well as fish, insects and small mammals. Normally a solitary animal, the grizzly congregates alongside streams and rivers during the salmon spawn. Every other year females produce one to four young which are the size of rats, weighing only one pound.

Some of the best big game hunting in Northern BC is right here in Horseshoe Creek's hunting area. Here is a link to a page on each one of the species available to harvest in this area.

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.
