Our bear hunters share their past experiences…

“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


“Of all the hunts I have ever been on, Rawhide Outfitters is by far the best. They are easy going, hardworking people. They wanted me to get my bear just as much as I did. I don’t know what I enjoyed more: Getting my bear or meeting the Cranneys.” George Watkins


“Since 2001 my husband, Mark, has hunted with Rawhide Outfitters experiencing some exciting hunting adventures harvesting some beautiful elk, bear, deer and a mountain lion. As we’ve gotten to know the Cranney family, we knew Rawhide could provide the perfect vacation for our family. Seven of our kids experienced an incredible, exciting adventure rafting two days on the Salmon River. Mark’s hunting successes with Rawhide peaked my new found interest in bow hunting, so I booked a hunt of my own! They even accommodated my six month old baby boy. My bear hunt was a thrill! After having a number of bears at point blank range, I shot a beautiful brown cinnamon bear. I know we will be back for more outdoor adventures with Rawhide Outfitters!” Michelle Grupe


“Cathy and John, just a few words to let you know how much I enjoyed my bear hunt. I had a great time and Justin did a super job. The camps were all great, meals were more than I could ask for, and every stand I hunted was well set up for anyone shooting traditional equipment. I do not think there was a shot over 20 yards. I am checking the calendar for next spring to make sure I can work in another trip up, I had a great time. Thanks” J Isbell Lubbock Field Service


“I was looking for a spring Idaho bear hunt and I spent many hours researching… I found Rawhide Outfitters who had an excellent reputation, a high success rate and was reasonably priced. I took a nice chocolate colored bear on the second day over a well visited, and well maintained bait station. My taxidermist told me that he hasn’t seen a black bear cape in better condition. I know I’ll be booking more hunts with Rawhide!” Dennis Billet
