Guided Bear Hunts

Our guided Bear Hunts are one of the most action packed, exciting hunts we offer! There is nothing more exhilarating than walking a canyon, with a well-trained pack of hounds, and hearing them open and trail out on a bear track. 

We primarily use hounds to harvest Bear, and have a greater success rate in doing so, but we are not opposed to hunting off of bait. We use the latest in GPS tracking technology with our hounds which allows us to pin point their location.  Taking bear this way is as quick and as ethical as other methods. 

This is sure to be one of the most exciting moments of your life with a memory that won’t forget!

Obtaining a Black Bear Permit in Utah

Utah’s Black Bear hunting application usually opens in early February, and closes after about three weeks.  Results become available in early March, and hunting opens in the same month!

This is about the quickest turnaround from application to field in all of hunting, and it’s easy to feel unprepared.  Don’t be caught off-guard!  Give us a call today, and let’s get your hunt planned!

Aside from the annual Black Bear draw application, they are additional ways to obtain a permit in Utah.

Conservation Permits

Conservation permits are auctioned for Black Bear hunts in Utah each year.  These permits are provided by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.  They are designed to raise money for multiple conservation groups such as Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife.  Therefore, these permits are 100% tax deductible.  Not only do you get the financial benefit from purchasing these permits, but your money is used to help Utah wildlife.
