Bear hunting Washington provides some of the best opportunity for trophy bear hunting in the country. The use of hounds or bait have been illegal for years now, and these bears have gone unpressured and get big! In Washington, you can expect prime-pelted bears, and big ones are the norm.

Black Bear Hunting Washington

  • Washington does not have a Spring season.
  • Their Fall hunting season runs from August 1 through mid-November.
  • Black bear population density in parts of Washington state rival the population densities found in Southeast Alaska and British Columbia.
  • Washington also offers two bear tags per hunter, which makes these hunts even more attractive.
  • Little hunting pressure when compared to some of the other states, due mostly to the fact that Washington does not allow baiting or hound hunting.
  • As in Alberta and British Columbia, you can take two bears in Washington.
  • Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife

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.
