This week, on “Canada in the Rough”, we’re on a spot and stalk Black Bear hunt, in the oat fields of BC!
While a lot of Bear hunting in Canada is done from tree stands, there’s nothing quite like being face to face with “Ursus Americanus”.
Black Bears are Omnivores, which means they feed on meat and vegetation, but during this time of year, in Vanderhoof BC, the lush oat fields are the daily special. Today’s episode follows the Beasley Brothers as they get eye level with big black bears with good friend, and Vanderhoof resident, Chad Westbrook.
The people of Vanderhoof British Columbia are one of kind, and this week, we take part in some great hospitality and some good old fashion cooking during our visit.
Stay tuned as Paul will be hunting with his trusty 300 WSM while Keith takes the stealthy archery approach, and both have exciting encounters with Big Black Bears!
