Oregon Bear Hunts

Oregon Bear Hunts provide some of the best opportunity for trophy bear hunting in the country. The use of hounds or bait have been illegal for over 25 years and these bears have gone un-pressured and are big. All of our Bear Hunts are very exciting and 100% Fair Chase. Successful methods that we use for Bear Hunting include spot and stalk, calling and setting up in blinds or tree stands in feeding areas. We spend a lot of time glassing older clear cuts where the Black Bears feed daily. During these fall Bear Hunts they feed frequently presenting plenty of opportunity for the patient bear hunter. Oregon state has a large bear population estimated at 25,000 – 30,000 bears.

METHODS- Our preferred methods for Bear Hunting are glassing feeding areas and spot and stalk. At certain times calling in bears is extremely successful. Calling tends to work best on bears that we spot first but may not be able to get a good stalk. If you’ve ever wanted excitement you’ll get it when a bear disappears into the brush and starts charging to a call. We’ve shot a bear as close as 8ft with a bow as it charged in to a lost calf call. Good optics and a lot of time spent using them is a very important element to a successful Washington Bear Hunting Trip. Most successful bear hunts are not very physical once we are in our hunting area.
