Black Bear Hunting


Outpost Black Bear Hunts:

Spring Hunt Dates: May 20th – June 15th
Fall Hunt Dates: August 15th – October 1st

Our Non-Guided Outpost Black Bear Hunts are offered at two of our outpost cabin locations: Sumach Lake and  Brownstone Lake. We have exclusive bear hunting rights on these lakes, so they’re prime locations for great hunts.

Our hunt locations are equipped with large permanent stands accessible by boat only. We pre-bait ahead of your arrival to ensure the best possible success for your hunt. Once you arrive, you are provided with enough bait for use for the duration of your hunt.

When you shoot a bear, the cleaning and skinning is up to you. We have room at our Cochenour base to cold store your meat and hide until you depart. Bring your fishing rod as there is excellent fishing on these lakes. Fishing rates are shown on the outpost pages, should there be anglers in your party.

  • Enough bait for your stay
