Grizzly bear hunting in these areas is organized with both bait hunting and stalk hunting. The success of the bear hunt in British Columbia is attributed to the fact law forcing hunters to acquire the services of a licensed outfitter.
Hiring an outfitter for grizzly bear hunting in Alaska and British Columbia is risky. Only go grizzly bear hunting with a professional outfitter. Hunters need to tell outfitters the weight of bear they consider a trophy grizzly. They should ask for a ‘shot on trophy male' guarantee. If satisfied, they need to ask for photographs of the accommodations, and ensure that meal times are flexible. If the outfitter appears to be legitimate, ask for references.
