I have wanted to become a spot and stalk black bear hunter for quite a while. But on my own I have so far not been able to make it happen.
In early June of 2014 I will be hunting with Non-Typical Outfitters
in the western Wyoming mountains. There's room for 3 more LRH guys to join me. In case you don't know that outfitter, I am leading an LRH Group to hunt elk with them this fall of 2013 and a different LRH Group for trophy deer in 2015.
Robb Wiley of NTO happened to send me an email a couple weeks ago with pix of the bears his clients took in the 2013 spring season that had just closed. In all his 10 clients shot at 11 bears and killed 7. That email really got my juices flowing!
Three of the seven had skulls over 20 inches and hides over 7 feet. That's pretty serious success! The hunt is out of a mountain camp using horses. About 80% spot and stalk with a small amount of time checking some bait stations in the evenings. The date is June 7, 2013 so the boars are in rut. Therefor the hunt activity goes all day long, just like during the peak of deer hunting rut. One guide per hunter. Six days of hunting.
