The black bear inhabits most of Alberta’s forested land. Black bears are common in open forests throughout the mixed-wood, foothill, and prairie zones. Partial clearing of forests for roads, trails and other developments has improved black bear habitat and consequently their numbers have increased in recent years. Black bears are active from spring through to autumn making both spring and fall black bear hunting an exciting adventure!
There are multiple opportunities throughout the province to harvest some nice trophy black bear. Be sure to check our list of featured outfitters here on www.abhunting.com to book your next Alberta black bear hunting trip!
