Our guided Spring black bear Hunts are done in Unit 25 along the South Fork of the Salmon River. Our area has a healthy population of black bears; you can see anything from a typical black bear in color to a color phase bear with shades of brown, blond, to cinnamon. An average black bear can be anywhere from 90 pounds to 300 plus pounds depending on age, sex, health, and season. Bears usually hibernate high in the mountains, so they seek southerly slopes below the snow line for forage when they first come out. Although up to 85% of the black bears diet consists of vegetation, the black bears can be hard on Newborn Elk and Deer calves as they are Omnivores which means they eat both Plants and Meat; they do make an impact on our Elk and Deer herds. Our guided black bear hunts are done April 23rd through June 10th.
