Discover the thrill of

Spring Black Bear Hunts


Discover bear fever as you spot and stalk five to ten bears a day. Finding bears is easy, harvesting the trophy of a lifetime takes steady nerves and a great guide.

Overview

We hunt black bears the most exciting way possible – spot and stalk.  In the spring we hunt where the grass grows first – in the lower elevations along the rivers and creek banks, south facing slopes, and logging roads and clearcuts.  Spring black bear hunts are based out of Greer Creek Lodge, where hunters will be treated to all the modern comforts right in the heart of wilderness bear country.

These spot and stalk hunts are action packed – expect to see five to ten bears each day.  Our region is a two bear area, which means your hunt doesn’t have to end with just one bear.  It takes a good guide with lots of experience to judge black bears, and we are committed to ensuring you cut your tag on a trophy black bear.  Our promise to you is that if your first bear isn’t 18”, your second bear is free.  With so many bears our success rate is over 90% on trophy black bears. 

The most exciting time to hunt black bears is in the rut when the boars start cruising for sows.  Plan your hunt in late May or early June when the days are long and the bears are rutting.  We are especially “kid friendly” guides – if your son or daughter is under 18 years of age ask us about our Youth Hunter specials to save money.    

Call us and start planning a trip, we’re here to help make your bear hunting dreams come true!

Bear Stories

Bruiser Cruiser
By Dan Brooks

When black bears start rutting, the boars start cruising for sows. It’s a perfect time to hunt bears, who start rutting late May, early June. A cruising bear is a funny creature. He likes to cover a lot of ground, and in our country with such thick timber, the easiest way to do that is on old logging roads.

Old Scar Face
By Dan Brooks

I’ve known about old scar face for years, I’d seen him several times over many seasons while bear hunting the Finger Creek area, but he’d given me the slip every time. When Brady and Todd came hunting with me to break their curse (see Curse Breaker Bear story), I was determined to get them both good bears. After Todd got his bear to break his curse, it was time for Brady.

Curse Breaker Bear
By Dan Brooks

Todd and Brady claim they are cursed. Somehow they’ve come to the conclusion that if someone in camp won’t get their animal it’s them. I’ve been determined to break that curse, and in the Spring of 2015 I got my chance when they came bear hunting with me. I’d like to tell you Todd’s story here, you can read Brady’s story under Old Scar Face.
