Years ago, during the elk season we began to notice more and more black bears on our ranches, so we started putting out some bear baits in the spring and it was a huge success and it naturally led to fall black bear hunting.

Hunting Method
Black bear hunting takes place on the hillsides over canyons filled with the large wild plum orchards, which the bears come down to in the evenings. Watch bears browse the hillsides in search of the ripest fruit available, and once a shooter is located, try to get within shooting range. It’s nothing to see 4 or 5 bears a night; and it’s just a matter of getting close enough to the right bear!

*This is an any-weapon black bear hunting unit so you can hunt with a rifle, bow, or even pistol.

Trophy Quality
An incredible 50% of the bears on this Idaho ranch are color phase, running from dark chocolate brown to cinnamon, blonde, and red. Average bears are from 5’10” to 6’6”, with some going 7 foot and larger. These black bears also tend to be fatter this time of year, pushing them up into the 300-400 pound range, with some getting up to 450-500 pounds.
