Hunting Outfitters in Canada


There is nothing as thrilling or adventurous as an Alberta bear hunt.At Bear Bonez Outfitters, we, as hunters and avid outdoorsmen and women, take pride in what our organization stands for. Our dignity and promise ensure that our customers take home trophy-sized skulls of 17” or more significant – and the memories that go along with them.

Bear Bonez allows the smaller bears within the habitat to grow with this promise. Doing so guarantees the presence of bears of great size within the locale.

Due to our unique location, we hold a dense population of bears – meaning we don’t run the risk of depopulation in this area. To achieve the best experience for our customers, we have set up trail cameras at every bait site, allowing us to see which bears frequent these sites and giving us the option to choose the right bear to target.

Join us for your next Alberta bear hunt, and we promise that you will find no better hunting outfitter and no better hunting destination.
