COASTAL GRIZZLY HUNTS - KNIGHT INLET
With many salmon streams and rivers in our area including the Klinaklini, Franklin, Simms, and Glendale, our coastal grizzly bears are well nourished and grow to be some of the largest in the world. The famous Knight Inlet is home to some of the highest concentrations of grizzly bears found on the British Columbia coast. It is in the watersheds that feed Knight Inlet that we conduct our fall hunts. Knight Inlet has produced many of the record book entries for Boone & Crockett.
Our fall hunts begin October 1st of each year. Openings are very limited and strictly regulated by the Fish and Wildlife Department so we recommend that you plan your hunt well in advance.
Each hunt runs for 10 days and depending upon which watershed being hunted, accommodations is our rustic Klinaklini cabin in the head of Knight Inlet. Healthy runs of 5 different species of salmon return to the various streams and rivers of Knight Inlet each fall, which in turn bring the big bears searching for food in their preparation for their long winter sleep. It is on these streams and creeks that we set up using natural ground blinds and in some cases tree stands overlooking large holding pools of spawning salmon.
This is an up close and personal hunt with a long shot considered to be 40-60 yards. The use of tree stands and natural ground blinds also provide the bow hunter with undetected, close range shot opportunities. Our fall archery hunts for Grizzly over the past 14 years have a success rate near 100%.
We request that you limit the weight of your personal gear to 1 or 2 medium size waterproof duffle bags not to exceed a total weight of 50 lbs. To the left (What To Bring) is a suggested list sufficient for a 7 to 10 day hunt. Weight is a critical element as transportation from Campbell River to base camp will be in light bush planes with limited baggage space.
