Next to whitetail deer, black bear hunting may be the most popular big game hunt. Their population is estimated to be over 600,000 in North America, making them the most common bear of all species. Twice that of all other bear species combined in the world.
28 States and all of Canada have Black Bear Hunting Seasons
Because they are so common, black bear hunts are an often overlooked bargain in the hunting world.
It’s actually quite surprising that a guided bear hunt isn’t more expensive. Especially considering all that is involved…preparing bait sites in remote areas, training hounds, etc. They typically start at about $2,000 for the cheaper options, and can be up over $5,000 for higher-end trophy hunts in the best areas.
We offer some great black bear hunts:
- Spring bear hunts over bait.
- Fall spot-and-stalk hunts.
- Hound hunts.
- Areas with high numbers of color-phase bears.
