Idaho Spring Bear Hunt Report by John LaBanc

John LaBanc with his Idaho spring bear.

Hunter: John LaBanc
Date: 17-23 May, 2021
Hunt: Idaho Spring Bear Baited Hunt
Consultant: Kyle Hanson | OUTDOORS INTERNATIONAL

The outfitter and his wife Maeghan are energetic, enthusiastic and focused on the hunters having an exceptional hunting experience. The cots in the walled tents had foam mattresses with form fitted sheets. The late night meals, after returning from sitting over the bait, were 5-star quality. The vegetables were grown locally, the eggs from their own chickens, the meat carefully selected to ensure quality and often from game he processed.

The bait sites where carefully selected to be in heavy cover and in difficult to access areas- just the place bears would be comfortable. Idaho is renowned for its color phase black bears. Our group of three hunters saw black, chocolate, cinnamon, and blond phase bears.

Hunter safety is his top priority and quality is paramount. I see no reason to look about for another outfitter-I am sure they would fall far short of this operation and hunting experience. I will schedule several more hunts with him. Look no farther than this outfitter for your Idaho big game hunting.
