Hoback Peak Outfitters offers black bear hunts in the Spring and Fall.
5 day spring bear hunts – $2,800
7 day (6 hunting nights) Fall – $3,000
The black bear population in the Hoback has been very strong over the last several years, with a wide variety of color in the bears. We’ve harvested and seen all sorts of color phased bears on our baits, chocolate, cinnamon, blond, jet black, and all sorts of varieties. It’s not uncommon to see several bears in any given day. Due to the excellent population, our success has been very high and we are harvesting some huge bears!
Spring bear hunts
If you can’t wait until fall, this is a great way to get out and do some hunting in the “off season.” Wyoming is blooming with green trees, flowers and fast flowing rivers, it’s a beautiful time of year to be out and about.
Spring bear hunting is very exciting and bears are constantly on the move after spending the winter in hibernation. Most of the hunting is done over bait sites in the evening from ground blinds or tree stands. We have many different bait sites in many different drainages to maximize your chances of harvesting a bear. Bear season usually runs from the first of May through the 15th of June with an archery season beginning in the middle of April. Licenses can be purchased over the counter when you arrive to Jackson Hole or Alpine.
A $1,000 deposit is required to make your hunting reservation and we can accomodate up to four hunters per week.
Fall bear hunts
If you were unsuccessful in your elk, deer, or moose application, or if you want to add a little more excitement to your already booked hunt, consider hunting black bear in the fall. Since there is no application and drawing process involved, you can come to Wyoming and buy your license when you get here!
These hunts are conducted from our fall hunting camp where your lodging and meals are all – inclusive. From this backcountry camp we can hunt 360 degrees with horseback mobility.
IF any of these bear hunts fit your schedule, give us a call as soon as possible, they won’t be available long! Hurry, these hunts are a ton of fun, and very inexpensive! We can also accomodate hunters who wish to hunt our bait sites, but take care of their own lodging and meals.
