Arizona Archery Black Bear Hunt Report by Paul Julander

Hunter: Paul Julander
Date: August, 2020
Trip Taken: Arizona Black Bear Hunt
Hunting Consultant: Patrick Kissel | OUTDOORS INTERNATIONAL

My son and I booked a black bear hunt in Arizona for August 2020. Leading up to hunt our outfitter and guide was responsive to calls and text messages, I found it comforting that I was speaking with the actual guy I would be hunting with.

Our outfitter was prepared and had clearly done scouting and knew the area well. We treed a small sow on the first day that we elected to pass on. The houndsman’s dogs are excellent caliber and awesome at what they do. On day three we chased a great boar and harvested him later that day. Great hunt and would not hesitate to hunt with this outfitter again or recommend him.
