Guided Hound Hunts for Bear

Hound Hunts Header

Our hound hunts are a great hunt for lots of action without sitting still like our baited bear hunt. We run over 140 bait sites and we bait every day on the sites we are using that week. We check our cameras every day. Our day starts very early in the morning to check bait sites and cameras to see which sites will be more productive. Then as soon as legal shooting time starts our houndsman, John – with over 20 years’ experience in hound hunting for bear, will let a couple of dogs out to start on a scent.  All dogs have a GPS collar and John knows where all dogs are at any given time. When the dogs have a bear treed or bayed, at that point the hunters are brought in. This can take all day or 20 minutes. John has 18 dogs he keeps locally during the season. Every day there is a fresh set of dogs ready to go.
