Black Bear Hunting Outfitters
We are surrounded by immense wilderness that sustains a healthy bear population. We are able to hunt black bears in the spring and fall, making it a double value hunt.
The spring hunt is usually done over bait, where we will have a tree stand or a distant ground blind set up for the hunt. Fall hunts are a spot and stalk type of hunt. These hunts are usually done as a side hunt to our deer and elk hunts but can be done on their own.
Wyoming bear come in many different colors, which adds to the fun of the hunt and to the uniqueness of your trophy. Colors include brown, chocolate, blonde, cinnamon, and black, as well as variations of these.
The same bear license can be used for the spring and fall hunts. These licenses are available year around over the counter. Our permitted bear hunting region is area 20.
Bear hunting can be done with a rifle or a bow.

Depending on availability, and time of year, we recommend making this into a base camp hunt. You will stay at our Jack Creek camp and watch spring bloom in the wilderness of the Bridger-Teton National Forest as we hunt. The camp is located close to the hunting areas and provides more conveniences than staying in town and traveling to us each morning. This also lends itself to having spouses, or non-hunters accompany you on your trip and ride horses, fish and relax while you are hunting.
These hunts require special scheduling and extra prep time that should be considered in your planning process. The extra fee for this is $1000/hunter. When you call to reserve your hunt please don’t hesitate to ask about additional activities and non-hunter rates.
Making a Reservation
A completed reservation form and a 50% non-refundable deposit are required to secure a booking and set dates. Once received additional information will be sent to you. If you have flexible dates, we can put you on our call list and be in touch when bears are hitting our baits. We will book with this method on a first-come, first-available basis. The balance is due two weeks prior to your reserved hunt dates, or upon reserving with the on-call method.
When to Arrive…
We need you to arrive the day prior to your scheduled hunt. If you are staying in Pinedale, we will assist with securing lodging accommodations. With a camp hunt, you must be available no later than 3 p.m. to be transported to our comfortable camp. If you are flying, plan your itinerary so you can get to the trailhead in time. If you are driving, please schedule your arrival accordingly. We will finalize pick ups and meeting times once all the schedules are set.
