HUNT: Arizona Black Bear Hunt

August, 2020

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.

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.
