Native Americans and early settlers who hunted these impressive animals for their meat, fat, fur, and claws have performed bear hunting for centuries. The bear is a symbol of strength, courage, and introspection. Many cultures have respected the bear for its supposed spiritual power. Cultures that see the bear as an animal or spirit guide hold the bear in the highest regard. Claw necklaces and belts are passed down from tribal members for their protection and good health symbolism.
Today hunters still enjoy the excitement and adventure of bear hunting. The guides, packers, and cooks of Silver Spur Outfitters & Lodge, Inc. welcome bear hunting parties in the spring and fall.
