CHILANKO FORKS OUTFITTERS
Spring Bear Hunts
"I've hunted with dozens of Canadian outfitters and Al Tew is right at the top of the list. He's honest, has enthusiasm, integrity and plenty of quality game. I intend to hunt with him as much as I can "
Allan has had great success this way and nothing is more exciting than harvesting a bear by this method. We hunt rifle or bow on approximately 3,700 square miles of area, in central British Columbia, Canada, giving us plenty of habitat to find bears. We like to keep our groups small, booking four hunters at a time, but will make exceptions for larger groups, if requested by the hunters. Bowhunters can arrange to have a bowhunting-only camp.
Hunts are based on two hunters to one guide. One-on-one hunts or longer hunts are available. Please contact us to discuss your options.Spring Season
Black Bear: 7 day hunt. 1 day in/out, 5 days hunting. Season runs May 1 - June 30.

We consider this a trophy hunt, with the opportunity to harvest heavy-antlered bucks, with scores ranging from 130 to 190 Boone & Crockett.
Our hunts are 7 days: 1 day in/out, 5 days hunting.
Cougar hunts are available December 1 through March 31.
Hunts are 7 full days.
There are lots of moose but only a limited number of spots available, so book early. Our moose average 40" to 45" but there's always a chance to encounter a big one, like the one on our Home page, taken by our good friend Tim Fair in 2003, which measured 56 inches.
Moose hunts are done on horseback. Our main camp is situated in prime moose habitat, surrounded by chains of meadows and swamps in every direction. Most of our moose have been taken within a couple of hours ride from camp. During the pre-rut and the rut, hunts can be incredibly exciting when the bulls answer to the call.
"I've hunted with Al Tew several times. As my guide, he led me to the first seven-foot black bear of my life, and two nice bull moose. Al outfits in game rich country and provides a comfortable camp with good food and accommodations. I wouldn't hesitate to hunt with him again." – Jim Zumbo
This is a 9-day Moose hunt. (1 day in/out – 7 days hunting)
Our recent expansion includes a mountainous area with a very healthy goat population. We could have hunted in 2018 but chose instead to scout heavily and gain familiarity. We came away very encouraged and excited to get started in 2019!
As with any mountain hunt, it is in your best interest to be a fit as possible. You can expect lots of climbing with packs. While it is not too extreme for the average hunter we can’t stress enough to spend some time physically preparing.
“Guiding or hunting for mountain goats is my all time favourite adventure hunt. The rewards are equal to the challenges of successfully harvesting a mature bill goat. I very much look forward to sharing this adventure.” – Allan Tew
This is a 9 day hunt (1 day in/out, 7 days hunting.)
All hunts include accommodations, meals and transportation to and from the nearest airport. Taxes and licenses and tags are extra.
Hunters can book flights to Williams Lake, BC, where they will be picked up and driven to one of our camps, a two or three hours drive from Williams Lake. Or they can drive, the trip taking approximately nine hours from the Blaine, Washington border. MAP
