Our Idaho black bear hunting outfitters offer baited hunts, great spot-and-stalk, and even hound hunts depending on what type of hunt you’re looking for. An added bonus is Idaho has LOTS of color phase black bears. Even though they are called black bears, the coloring of Idaho’s bears are also cinnamon, brown and some have blazes.

Our hunt was excellent.

We saw bucks every day along with all other sorts of wildlife. Mountain goats, bears, and foxes were common sights. Fishing and crabbing was special bonus. The food was excellent, the crew was amazing. Outdoors International did a great job of finding exactly what we were looking for.

What an amazing experience!

The hunting lodge was out of this world!, Rooms, food and the scenery were all A+. Our guide was exceptional and had us on Shiras moose all five days. We saw over 30 total with at least 10 bulls. They had a plan for everything including taxidermy and game processing.
