I'm looking into booking a guided black bear hunt in British Columbia for next fall, and I need some advise. This will be my first bear hunt, so I have lots of questions. Anybody ever hunt in BC? Can you recommend any guides? I've looked at some trips through Cabela's, Steve's Outdoor Adventures and Shoshone Wilderness Outfitting. All of those are outfitters who have several guided hunts available, would I be better off going through the guide directly? What part of BC is the best for size and color phase bears? Any trouble getting guns and ammo into and out of Canada? I'm going to use my Browning A-Bolt .300 Win. Mag., what type of bullet and weight should I use. With the spot and stalk hunts how long is the average shot? I'm sure more will come to me, but these are the only ones I can think of right now. Any help would be appriciated.
