My father, brother and I are looking at doing a Spring bear hunt and I'm looking for guide recommendations. Right now we're looking at late May in Idaho or Wyoming but I'm open to other locations. It doesn't need to be a long range friendly guide. It'll be our first bear hunt so I'm more concerned with getting an opportunity on a nice bear more than anything else. I'm ok with hunting over bait or spot and stalk. I'm not sure about shooting them out of trees using dogs. Nothing against the practice, it just isn't a type of hunting I've ever done before and I'm not certain if I'd enjoy it as much. If you've done it and loved it, tell me why and maybe I'd be down. Have any of you used any guides you'd recommend on a hunt like this?
