Utah Black Bear: Black Bear Hunts

We love the outdoors and the thrill of a Black Bear hunt, especially when following a pack of well trained hounds. We have been raising and training hounds for Black Bear Hunting for over 20 years. On occasion we also hire qualified, licensed bear hunting guides to assist in the hunt. This allows us to cover more country and increases your chances of success. We use radios for communication and dog tracking equipment (GPS). This allows us to make the most of your time while bear hunting.
