This outfitter has been operating White Mountain Apache bear hunting since 1982, producing an impressive number of Boone and Crockett black bears. Tags are purchased by the outfitter from the Tribal Game and Fish Department. Each hunter may purchase up to two tags per year, and there can be up to four hunters in camp per week.

Specializing in trophy quality black bear hunting.

The White Mountain Apache Nation is home to some of the premier black bear hunting in the world. Known for having large color phase bears, the Tribal biologist estimates that 50% of all the bears on the Reservation are color phase. For this specific hunting unit, we believe this number to be even higher!

You truly have free reign to choose to hunt however you wish, and the outfitter will cater to your wants and needs.

  • The outfitter has highly trained hounds that excel year round on both mountain lion and black bear.
  • You can hunt over bait sites, with either a rifle or a bow.
  • You can spot-and-stalk, or sit water in the hot summer months.

For the spring/summer hunting season, each outfitter is assigned their own area. This outfitter operates in Area 1. Arizona has strived to manage the bear population in this unit to produce old mature boars. It is the goal to have a sow harvest percentage of less than 10% annually. They have met that goal yearly, without fail.

    The guides know the plan and execute on it. Trust their judgement. They want you to kill a great bear and have a good experience.
