Depends on what your looking for in a total trip.

Norm and Verna with Sask-Can Outfitters in Big River Saskatchewan have fantastic accomodations with extra personal touch for female hunters, especially younger girls.  Their daughters hunt and actually go out and guide with the girls.  It is a fantastic atmosphere and they have pheonomenol fishing that time of year if your looking to change pace from sitting over bait.  They border the Prince Albert State Park and if your looking for big inland Black Bears, I'll put theirs up against anybodys.

My daughter shot her Black Bear last year at Flying B Ranch in Idaho.  It is a first class operation and falls within a two bear area.  You also may be able to book within Turkey Season (not sure if they hunt them in June) and they also have really good fishing opportunities.  I bought my entire family and we cannot say enough positive things about how well were treated and what a great time we had.  My son and I archery hunt, got skunked and still want to go back.

If your looking for Spot and Stalk, my son and I did a great Black Bear hunt with Whiteswan Lake Outfitters in British Columbia.  This is nature in the Canadian Rockies at its finest.  There is a lot of walking and hiking and this is also a 2 bear area.

This year we plan on doing an archery hunt on the White Mountain Apache Reservation with Kelly McBride of K-Bar in Arizona.  He's got a some great trail cam photos and successful hunt pictures, but I'll wait until my own eyes get on the animals before making any suggestions.

Good Luck.  You can check out some of our pics and stories on the Black Bear section.

I have a great outfitter in

I have a great outfitter in Manitoba, It's run by a Father and Son, Truely honest hard work guys. They have some great bears in their area including some nice color phase. 6 full days of hunting, you can go fishing in the afternoon. You'll have a fun time on this trip and my guys will take very good care of you. I am starting to represent another outfitter in Alberta it's a two bear area and a very good guide. Feel free to check out my website and contact me with any questions.

Thanks!

Brian

An honest outfitter for you and your daughter

Hi Charlie, I've been going to an outfitter in Quebec for the past 7 years and Lord willing this will be my 8th. I have never hunted where there are more bears. Last year my 13 year old son Josh killed his first bear there. We had a big boar come in the first 5 minutes we were there! He left and a sow with 2 cubs came in. They stuck around for about 20 minutes then left. About a half hour later  another boar came in that Josh killed. That was 5 bears in 1 hour of hunting. We took some pics, dragged the bear out to the road and hunted the rest of the evening. Two more young boars came in right before dark. 7 bears the first night. We ended up killing 4 bears that first night out of 6 of us. My buddy that has been going up since 2004 and I held out a couple days and ended up killing two really good bears. Mine was the 14th bear I saw. Last year the outfitter went 100% success again. I'm 7 for 7  private message me for more info.  I have brought over 30 hunters with me over the years and none of us have ever gone home without a bear! In fact we have only once hunted past the second evening before tagging out. Nice accommadations too! kskayn@ymail.com is my email.  Good Hunting KevinBig smile

website gboutfitter.com  If you call him his name is Gerald and he speaks mostly French. Tell him "Kevin Kayn" he will probably have you call me.

Here are a few photos from 2009 and 2010 hunts.

Guided Bear Hunt

I can't attest to the quality of this hunt as I haven't been on it yet, but my son is planning on a Maine black bear hunt at this facility this coming fall.  The information looks fantastic and I'm excited about going.  It might be worth your checking into.  Good luck wherever you go.  Spending time with your daughter in the wild is a winner even if she/you don't get a bear.

Might I recomend you contact

Might I recomend you contact F&G and ask to talk with the area bio , it seems to me june is a little late for a large part of the area your looking at. Nearly all the bears I see that time are rubbed ,and in many cases they have moved from the green edges back into the thick stuff.In any case good luck, get the kids out.

Yes that area tends to be a

Yes that area tends to be a bit latter, if your going to be that late you might try the petersville area, west of the Parks highway, unit 16A. That area grts a heavy snow load and hunting there should be viable in June.
