Fall Black Bear - Season Dates, August 7 - October 15.
Navajo has some awesome Black Bear Hunting in the southwest. We offer hound hunting for Black Bear in snow and on Dry Ground. These hounds are our pride and joy and are members of our family. Getting within a few yards of these Magnificent but Dangerous Predators will for sure get your heart beating. These hunts require hunters to be in good to really good physical shape as it requires some hiking in all conditions and may require some physical training beforehand as well as factoring in the elevation differences if coming from the back east. It is definitely a high-energy adrenaline rush type of hunt that you will never forget.
We set up camp right on whichever hunt unit our client will be hunting in to provide as ample hunting field time as possible and to limit travel time back to the camp duration of the hunt. We provide a 44" Fifth Wheel as our base camp, Wall Canvas Tent as Dining Hall and utilize Jeep and or four-wheel drive Vehicles for field transportation. We will pre-scout for Black Bears before our clients arrive to get a good idea of which Bear to go after and come up with a game plan when our client gets to our base camp which is the day before the client hunt starts. On opening day we will use one or two groups of hounds to track and tree or bay up a Black Bear. Most time we will utilize a 4X4 truck with hound boxes and drive roads till we cut a track in the snow or on dry ground or we will hike canyons or ridges to known areas where Bears have been passing thru likes saddles to cut tracks. Terrains can be anything from high elevation Mountains with ponderosa pines, oak brush and aspens slopes, to lower country with cedar and sage flats to Red Canyons depending on the year of the hunt.
