fall bears in Arizona

I just finished a bear hunt in Arizona with an outfitter that I wont mention. The guides worked hard but the outfitter seemed more interested in scouting other game than finding bears. Who is a good bear outfitter?

Re: fall bears in Arizona

Id highly recomend a DIY Oregon blackbear hunt on the brakes of the Snake River but ONLY if your in shape. It offers you everything from close quarters combat bear hunting to cross canyon shots depending what your in the mood for.Bring a side arm and a mechette, and LOTS of water.
If your in great physical shape, I cant think of a better place to bear hunt DIY spot and stock. Saves lots of $$$$$ that way too!

Re: fall bears in Arizona

OTC (non resident)-
TAG= $182.50
LIC= $140.50
for a ttl of $323.00 for being legal, plus your personal travel/food. They have a Boat rental in Richland if you wanna be lazy and spot from the river (only works this time of year when the wild fruit is ripe). Dont know how much boat rental costs.

Re: fall bears in Arizona

winmag can you get 900-1200 yard shots on bear this time of year in the location that you have mentioned ? Sounds like a little bit of heaven.....

Re: fall bears in Arizona

Rifle tags for bulls in this area are not OTC only spikes are OTC. The bulls in Northeast OR can get close to what they have in Colorado, but they are not as prevelant and the tags for those areas are very difficult to draw. Mule deer that are trophy quality I are lacking in OR. There are some but they few and far between. I can tell you the unit that most of those are in if you areinterested, just PM me I won't type it in open forum. Bear hunting in OR is awesome and the shot distances you are asking for are easily attainable if you are hunting canyons. For august and early september the difficulty is that they are hanging in the bottoms of those canyons and generally in brushy wooded areas (huckleberry patches right now).. NE Oregon is often overlooked for it's hunting but we have great animals here!
