Looking for a nice black bear rug of a different color? These beautiful bears range from black, chocolate, red, cinnamon and blonde. Historically, 70% of bears we see will be color phase.
Our hunts will be spot and stalk, and over bait sites which have been established weeks before your arrival.
We pack in by horseback to our traditional backcountry camp at the historic Gilmore Ranch cabin for a comfortable stay. There is no outside hunting pressure back there which means more chances to put a tag on a huge bruin! Shooting opportunities on our bear hunts have been 95% for the past decade!
Lodge hunting is done out of the Whitebird Summit Lodge, and our new Riggins Lodge. We have different areas to hunt, depending upon weather and a hunters physical conditions. We also have lots of private land that has never been open to the public in the past. Spring comes much earlier in these areas, and we are able to hunt them weeks before the snow melts in our other units. We use atv’s and horses for these hunts. We also offer hunts along the South Fork of the Clearwater River, which is forested land and has proven in the past to produce some monster bears! These hunts will be over bait, or spot and stalk, and can be driven to.
We have some world class houndsmen that live for hunting bear! This hunt can be both physically challenging and exciting! If you have never watched a well trained pack of hounds match wits and brute force with a big bear, you are missing out! It is a hunt you will never forget! Limited spots for these hunts, so book now!
