Idaho Black Bear Hunts


Spring Black Bear Hunts : Our Guided Idaho Spring Black Bear hunts are in Idaho’s West Central Mountains in Unit 25 along the South fork of the Salmon River.

Color Phase Bears

Our area has a healthy population of black bear, even though they are called Black bear, about 50% of are bears are color phase (Brown , Cinnamon, & some have Blazes). Black bears are Omnivores which means they eat both meat and plants. In the early spring when plant food is scarce the bears prey on Elk, Deer, and Moose calves, which does make a impact on our Elk and Deer herds! An average black bear weighs between 250 to 400 lbs and is 4 to 6 feet long.

Guided Black Bear Hunting

Our spring Idaho Black bear hunts are April through June. We like to do spot and stalk hunts on horse back in April and May, where we spend the day riding, hiking, baiting, and glassing for bear. In the later part of May and June we do Hunts over baits with groups of two to four people. We usually leave Yellow Pine after we eat lunch, driving each hunter to a bait location where there is usually about a half an hour hike to the bait where you will spend the evening watching the bait and at dark your guide will pick you up. Our strategies may change depending on the bear activity we see on our trail cameras.
Our hunts are done from Yellow Pine Idaho where your lodging and meals are provided, hunts are 7 day hunts with 5 full days of hunting.
