When it comes to Bear hunting with hounds, hands down, we are the best in the West. We have experienced an unheard of 100% success rate for the past eleven consecutive years. These aren't just any Bears either. The majority of them are color phased, some weighing in at over 500 pounds. Our hounds are trained 9 months out of a year and tree over 100 bears in that time, so you bet that they will do their part in harvesting your trophy bear. This hunt can be combined with an elk or antelope hunt as well.
Our Lion hunt begins by driving roads checking for tracks in the early morning hours before sunrise. We usually have 3 to 5 4x4 trucks checking roads, so it typically doesn't take long to find a track. Once a track is located the hounds are released after sunrise. If you've never experienced this, then you are in for an extreme adrenaline rush. There is nothing like the enthusiasm and excitement that comes from a well trained pack of Lion hounds trailing a lion. We then follow the hounds until they tree or hold the lion at bay. Once at the tree, you will have the opportunity to harvest one of the most elusive predators of North America.

When I first realized I was actually going to have an opportunity to hunt a black bear, I was beyond excited! Thanks to our good friend John, we were able to make it happen!
Even though at the start of the hunt, I really did not know what to expect but it turned out to be one of the most memorable times of my life! I was so impressed with Alan and his crew with the entire hunt, everything from the delicious meals at the campsite to learning how dogs are used to help with the tracking, what an adrenaline rush! Great team effort to finally get my trophy bear! They took incredible care of us and went out of their way to make our time very memorable! Thank you Pinnacle Outfitters!!
