Black Bear

Quality Sized Bears Tom

Widely recognized as one of the premier black bear outfitters of Alberta, if not Canada, Plihal's Frank Lake Guiding and Outfitting has regularly received awards and accolades not the least of which are two consecutive provincial championships (2004 & 2005) for largest bear in Pope and young and Boone and Crockett division respectively of the annual Alberta Professional Outfitters' trophy competition. Add to this another first place finish in 1996 and one harvested skull in 1999 that measured 21 11/16 which didn't place, you get some idea of the monsters harvested in our camp. Competition between outfitters in Alberta at the APOS convention has been discontinued in recent years, but the quality of bears harvested by PGO continued into 2014 and 2015.

Your Chance at a Great Hunt!!

In 2017 our hunters had the opportunity to harvest their limit in bears, some choosing to only take one. Your opportunity to see multiple bears each week is not just a chance, but an absolute.

We spend a month prior to the hunt ensuring each bait is refreshed in a timely fashion, promising a successful hunt for our clients. You will sit in different stands through the week (we do not keep you in one) and we will rotate where you sit depending on bear activity.

Trophy after trophy, giant bears of blonde, cinnamon, brown, chocolate, and, of course, black colour phase. With quality and quantity baits as well as year round scouting of protected hunt sites and monitoring of giant bear movements, our marquee hunt features attention to detail in preparation for your hunt.

We put the time in to make sure clients aren't just shooting another bear. Cheaper hunts? Sure, there are some, but the old cliche "You get what you pay for" doesn't only apply to cars.

We take a maximum of 18 bear hunters per year and no more than 6 per week in areas we have continually baited since 1988 in our quest to be at the top again for 2017, 2018....
