The spring black bear hunts at RockRidge offer the hunter an excellent opportunity to harvest bears weighing up to 500 pounds. Our hunters also have the chance to tag colour phase bears; brown, cinnamon and blonde.
The outfitting area covers nearly 300,000 acres. All of the hunts are bait oriented and with three or more baits per hunter in this large area, we pick out the best and most active for you to hunt. The large area, combined with well placed bait sights, gives us an excellent track record. Sighting are 100% and harvest rates are 95%. New bait sights are in development each year. Scouting these new areas brings one to realize there is no end to harvesting trophy black bears.
The land alone will give the hunter all the confidence needed to harvest the bear of a lifetime. All styles of hunting are welcome whether it be rifle, muzzleloader or archery. Both Kent and Lori are avid archery hunters and understand the requirements needed. Bow hunters make up almost 90% of the clientele, so you will be well looked after!
