The crew from North American Hunter-TV is off to Vancouver for the island’s No. 1 game species: black bear. Join host Mark Kayser, NAH Editor-in-Chief, Gordy Krahn and retired NFL player, Joe Jurevicius, as they spot and stalk for big bruins. Tune in to North American Hunter-TV on NBC Sports Network Tuesdays at 1:30 pm, Thursdays at 5:30 am, Saturdays at 8 am and Sundays at 6:30 am ET. North American Hunter-TV is part of the North American Hunting Club, the premier community for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts.
“I’ve been to the Island many times, and it’s spot and stalk hunting on steroids. You come here to hunt, and you can easily cover 100 square miles in one day,” said Krahn.
This area is known as a destination for monster black bears. Guides take hunters out on a mixture of private and public hunting land. “You spend hours moving from clear-cut to clear-cut because that’s what the bears are doing, too,” noted Krahn.
Joining Krahn is retired NFL wide receiver, Joe Jurevicius, who says he got involved in hunting because of another NFL player. “I remember getting dressed up in camo and sitting in a treestand, waiting. Suddenly, a doe walked right underneath me and I was hooked,” said Jurevicius.
The first day out, the hunters see signs of bears (broken tree limbs), but no bears. After glassing for a few hours, they decide to return to their truck, which turns out to be a good idea. As they turn the corner, a black bear is marking its territory directly in front of them. Tune in to see if Jurevicius gets his shot!
Also in this week’s episode, tune in for Krahn’s “One More Thing” on Federal Premium Trophy Tip ammo, and North American Hunter Sr. Editor, Luke Hartle, shows how to get back in bow shape in the “Mathew’s Minute” segment. In Field Test powered by StuffStuff, get the latest reviews on MyTopo Maps, Columbia PH Baselayer and a turkey mounting kit. Lastly, in “You Call the Shots,” what would you do when faced with this rifle shot at an Alberta mule deer?
