Bitterroot Mountain Bear Hunts - Latitudes

Spring Bear

Spring Bear Hunts

The beautiful Bitterroot mountains provide the perfect backdrop for conducting our hunts. Every glacially carved canyon is prime habitat for growing big old bears that rarely see any hunting pressure. We will see multiple bears daily, allowing us to target only the larger, more desirable trophies. We are fortunate enough to have all color phases, with black and chocolate being the predominant colorings.

With a season running from April 15 - June 15 we are able to enjoy all phases of the spring season, from finding big boars emerging from their dens perched high on rocky ledges in April, to the rut in late May and early June- where we glass large park areas looking for big boars chasing sows. There is no greater rush than getting a big boar in the glass! 

Clients should expect to hike a few miles each day with most of the day spent behind the glass looking for a big bear. All our bear hunts are done by spot and stalk method. We can accommodate archery, rifle, crossbow and muzzleloader hunters. Our hunts include lodging in a comfortable modern home with fantastic meals. 

All our spring bear hunts are a low volume, high success program and are personally guided by Brandon Purcell. We only take 1-2 clients a week to ensure each client has an outstanding hunt.  Brandon has spent the last decade guiding all over the west from the wilds of Alaska to the vast Sonoran desert in old Mexico. Brandon has taken over 50 bears with clients over the years and he always strives to find clients the best trophies available. 

Our spring black bear hunts are one of the greatest values in mountain hunting today!
