Idaho Bear Hunts

Rawhide’s IDAHO BLACK BEAR HUNTING OUTFITTERS who’s professional Bear Hunting Guides lead guided archery and rifle bear hunting trips near Salmon Idaho!

A spring bear hunt is a great hunting adventure with Rawhide’s Idaho bear guides. We are very fortunate here in Idaho that baiting is permitted and feel that is an important element of our bear hunts’ high success rate. This also allows us to be more selective about size and color. Due to the elevation and genetics, our bear are high quality, heavy nap and multi color. We have a wide variety of color phases ranging from black to cinnamon to blonde bears with a lot of white chest markings.

Hunting Area

Our hunting areas consist of over 600 square miles and borders on the Frank Church Wilderness from Challis to Salmon, Idaho. This hunting area provides a huge opportunity to hunt many canyons that seldom get hunted, and has produced a very good supply of bear since we started outfitting in 1989. Bear hunts are conducted from three different bear hunting camps which you may choose from, a drive in hunting camp to be very mobile and two different pack in horse camps.

“Rawhide Outfitters has provided the best hunting trips of my life. Having hunted both bear and elk, I am amazed at the time and hard work that they put into baiting bear stations, building blinds, finding water springs, locating animals, setting up a comfortable camp and attending to every detail of the hunt. I can honestly say that I have never met a more honest hardworking and pleasant family than theirs!” Steve Koerner
