The hunt with Swanspoint is top notch. Matthew, Gary & Andy go over the top to not only find you a bear but find you a trophy bear. We saw shooter bears daily. Camp was great. the guys always fixed great camp meals for us and there was never a shortage of food. The wall tents were awesome with each of them having cots and wood stoves for heat. There was a trailer set up for taking hot showers.
I would highly recommend this hunt to anyone wanting a spot and stalk bear hunt. I look forward to many more hunts with the swanspoint guys.

Guides and accommodations were great! All hunters were successful in harvesting bears or had multiple solid shot opportunities. Matt and the team go out of their way to engage and make your hunting experience catered to you. Really enjoyed my experience with the guides and an awesome group of fellow hunters and look forward to returning in the near future.

This was my second hunt with Swanspoint outfitters and again it was fantastic.The guides are very professional and knowledgeable about the area, wildlife and most of all the bears and their behaviour.I was fortunate enough to take home two great bears this year and so did the other hunters in camp.The camp itself is very comfortable and the food is great.I am looking forward to hunting with Swanspoint again because I would not consider anyone else for a black bear hunt.
Thanks again Matt for another fantastic hunt.


"This is was my first experience and attempt at black bear hunting. Swanspoint  was a well run camp complete with knowledgeable, professional and friendly guides. This camp was based out of tents that had a wood burning stoves in each tent that slept 2 hunters.  All the meals are prepared and tasted excellent. I was pleasantly surprised to have access to an on demand hot water shower! I wasn’t expecting that. It was a nice luxury to have!!! The hunt itself was fun and Gary talked with us  about his style of stalking and hunting and how we preferred to hunt to get the most out of the experience. I thought that was also a nice touch. Since every hunter likes to approach his hunt in a different manner. The first few days were kind of rough. We didn’t see many bears. All the other guides and hunters were seeing a plethora and harvesting them. No fault of Gary’s or ours that’s fair chase spot and stalk hunting!!! That ended abruptly on the second to last day. I doubled up on 2 bear in less than a mile!!! One of which was well over 6ft! Every hunter in camp harvested a bear if not 2. Swanspoint did a great job in every way possible and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending them to anyone wanting to hunt a trophy black bear. I look forward to seeing them again next year!!! Thanks again for having me!!!"

Thanks for a great hunt and for a wonderful experience. You and your guides displayed an in-depth knowledge of the area you hunt as well as bear hunting in general. The camp was comfortable and the food was great. Each of you went beyond and above to see that we had everything we needed and that we were enjoying our trip. My goal was to bag either a large black bear or a color phase bear. With just a little better shooting I would have accomplished both. The large black is a trophy I will cherish for a lifetime. Thanks again."


This was my first black bear hunt. It was an enjoyable week with my first successful bear taken on the fifth day of the hunt. Matt and his guides were accomadating knowlegable hunters and guides. The camp, the food and the other hunters in camp were all part of a great hunting experience. I'm glad I choose Swanspoint Outfitters."

I want to thank you for the great time I had again this year. This was my third trip up with you. Through no fault of yours I had missed three big bears on the other to trips. I finally got it done on this trip. You never gave up trying to get me on a big bear. I know it had to be frustrating for you watching me miss. As far as the rest of the guides they are fantastic. Gary is very knowledgeable and a great tracker. Andy was also fun to be around when we came in at the end of the day. Keep up the good work you really make it a great hunt. Thanks again."

"I had the opportunity to hunt with Swanspoint Outfitters this spring 2015. I can't say enough about this group. For the bow hunter or rifle hunter you need to experience this camp.

The camp is top notch. The facilities are new and well laid out. The hunters have their privacy with sleeping quarters away from the main dining tent if they wish to have some down time. The dining tent is spacious and allows all hunters to mingle before and after the hunt. The meals are good old home cooked meals. All hunters looked forward to the next meal. There was always an abundance of food and snacks. You could help yourself anytime of the day.

The guides know bear hunting. They know the hunting grounds well. They understand bear habitat and bear movement patterns. The guides camp companionship is something to remember. You feel like you have made good friends in the guides. The amount of bears that we saw was unbelievable. The size of bears and different colour phase bears was great to see and experience.

The hunt, the facility and guides are something I will never forget. Truly one of the best hunts I have been on in a long time. Swanspoint Outfitters is highly recommended and I will be returning to hunt."
