Black Bear Hunts
Spring Bear Hunting
You and your guide have checked the wind and made the voyage to an open meadow with deep green grass surrounded by thick timber. Your guide points out fresh scat and a large track in the mud along the trail and positions you behind some brush with instructions to keep an eye on a nearby spring. You sit silently watching as your guide let’s out a blood curdling scream which emulates a calf elk in distress. The call send shivers through your body as you look back. Your head turns again toward the spring and as if appearing from nowhere, a large cinnamon bear is heading straight in your direction. He is on the hunt with his jaws popping as you raise your rifle.
Stockton Outfitters provides fully guided spring black bear hunts in South Western Montana from our base camp. 4WD’s are used to access the country from camp, but all hunting is done on our two feet. This lodge based hunt combines the mobility and the flexibility to hunt the entirety of our 187+ square mile permit area. We offer archery, rifle, black powder and pistol bear hunting opportunities. The pelts are prime and so is the hunting.
Spring Bear hunting is a good time to relax and enjoy everything Montana’s high country has to offer. Don’t forget to bring along your camera.
