I realize that they everyone’s definition of “affordable” is different, but I was just curious as to what kind of prices people were charging for fall bear hunts. My uncle and cousin were looking to go again as they haven’t in nearly 20 years and we’re just kind of wondering what kind of prices are out there. A couple places they’ve looked so far are $2000 and up for a 5 day hunt.

$2000.00 a week is about the going rate for a Maine or Eastern Canada hunt. Mid West Canada about twice that.

I booked a hunt with true north outfitters at this past outdoors show in Harrisburg for $1900 for Fall 2020. Kory Leslie the owner was a straight shooter from what I can tell. I can't wait! It's in Southeastern New Brunswick so the drive won't be bad at all. Good luck with your search.

$1800-$2000 Canadian for eastern Canada is pretty typical for a week long spring hunt with a reputable outfitter with lodging and meals. Tags and tips will be extra of course.

The outfitter I go with had a slammer deal for this fall. $1000 Canadian for a 4 day hunt with lodging. No meals though. The hunters went 4/5.

Always wanted to try BC Spot and Stalk for giants. It’s definitely at least 2x an eastern hunt and logistics add to that significantly. I think for a good hunt now in BC/Western Canada with someone like Skinner Creek flying from PA I’d budget at least $6k. It’s a different experience and will take more time as well considering getting to the camp and back.

Doug at Skinner Creek has a very good reputation though.

For those mentioning New Brunswick, do any of you know if Skiff Lake Outfitters is still around? As a kid my uncle hunted there and killed some monster whitetail and a few bear. I’d heard a guide bought it but nothing from there in quite awhile. I think the last I checked the site was down or maybe just not running right.
