Exciting Black Bear Hunting in Idaho Awaits You this Fall

Looking to plan a thrilling Idaho bear hunt? Now is the time! With the summer season starting, our fall bear hunting trips here in Idaho will be here before you know it! Idaho boasts some of the most beautifully painted backcountry scenes in the northwestern United States.

At Silver Spur Outfitters, the fall offers the perfect weather during black bear and elk hunting season in Idaho. Hunting in the backcountry of units 19 & 20, our hunting parties enjoy being completely removed from civilization, as it allows them to be totally immersed in this experience with nature. Black bear season reopens the last day of August and we immediately re-bait spring-established fall sites. Once the bait sites are reestablished, we are back on the hunt, generally starting at the end of the 2nd week of September and hunting through the end of October.
