Old-growth temperate rain forest towers to fog-shrouded mountain peaks. Pacific Rim humidity drips from branches hanging across the grassy game trail, and ahead, a giant, jet-black hungry black bear hulks. Tearing at branches 7 feet off the ground, the boar marks his territory during the spring breeding season, daring anyone or anything to challenge him. “Closer,” your guide hisses. “We need to get closer.” Knowing the rainforest can swallow a wounded bear, Shockey demands a closer, better angle. This is a scenario that plays out literally dozens of times each spring on famed wild Vancouver Island. Home to the highest black bear population density on earth, and an incredible number of world-class decades-old boars, the island lures big game’s most serious adventurers. “Point-Blank Bears” takes you to drool-dripping distance. “Now, take him, ... he’s a giant!” Shockey hisses as the monster boar lumbers broadside, about to disappear for good. The gun booms, smoke mixes with low fog, and the trail is empty... welcome to the jungle of Point-Blank Bears.
