BEAR HUNTS

SPRING AND FALL BEAR HUNTS

Spring Hunts (April 15-May 31)

Fall Hunts (September 15 – October 9)

In our area, there are overloads of fruit trees which are one the main food sources for bears. Bears will travel for miles to reach these mountainous areas to fatten up for winter.

Our success rate for catching bear is between 90-95%.

 

Running hounds after a bear is one of the most exciting hunts you can experience. When you come on a dog hunt, you can expect to run early mornings and get back early afternoon, sometimes earlier due to hot weather, or hard rain. While hunting black bears with Back 30 Outfitters you will be surprised with the large number of color-phased bears. Colors from black, cinnamon, red, chocolate, and blonde.

They recently opened up baiting in our area giving us another method of hunting bears in 10A. We offer a few weeks of sitting on baits to accommodate a person with physical limitation. With bait hunts, you will go out in the afternoon, when most of the bear activity starts to begin. The prime time is the last hour before sunset, this is the most common time when bears are killed while sitting on baits. When sitting on bait you can bring your gun or bow. Spring and fall hunts are fully guided, mostly using hounds, and a few weeks of baiting.

 

During your hunt with us, you’ll be riding in side by sides, trucks, or walking; transported to and from the hunting areas. You will stay in cabins, with another bigger cabin nearby to eat delicious homemade meals.

COUGAR HUNTS

COUGAR HUNTS

Winter Hunts (Dec-mid Feb)

Mountain lions are very majestic and powerful animals, being able to see them up close is something you'll never forget. We travel in side by sides, snowmobiles, trucks and on our feet during the hunt. Idaho has a very high population of mountain lions, and Back 30 Outfitters operating area is located in the middle of the Bitterroot Mountains, surrounding the Dworshak Dam. We run the dogs during the winter months for best results of harvesting a cat.

Joey owns and hunts his own hounds, with the  help of another hound hunter. With snow being on the ground, it helps us find tracks of a mountain lion. Once a fresh track is spotted, your guide will let a few dogs out, and the race is on! With snow conditions being favorable, your success in treeing a cat are high. This area has been known to harvest many large cats, some go Boone and Crockett each year, due to living near the 53 mile long reservoir where it holds a large wintering area for deer, elk, moose, and other game.

Winter Hunts (December 14 – February 16)

 

Come and hunt bobcats for 5 days with us!

Bobcats have incredible markings that make them unique. They are very secretive and incredible animals. Where the season runs much shorter than the mountain lion season. To hunt bobcats in Idaho, all you have to have is a valid hunting license, no tag required. Once you kill a bobcat you have to present the pelt to a regional Fish and Game office.

 

We offer a fully guided bobcat hunt with the hounds. This is a favorable hunt for houndsmen, as they give a good race. These wild cats are incredibly beautiful and smart. They are similar to hunting cougar, once your guide finds a track, they let the dogs trail until treed.

Wolf Killed in 10A by Joey Dotson July 16th, 2021

ADD A WOLF TO YOUR TROPHY ROOM!

 

Unfortunately wolves were reintroduced here in Idaho in 1995 through the ESA. The wolf population has gotten out of hand, and is destroying wildlife. Whenever we are in the woods, if a wolf is spotted, a shot is being fired either by us or you if you have a tag present.

 

We aren't currently guiding wolf hunts, but charge a $1000 kill

fee. Wolfs are very smart, and usually hard to see while hunting, but since they are reproducing quickly, and for so long nothing has been done about them we are seeing them more than ever while hunting other animals.

 

If you sign up to be a member of the Foundation for Wildlife Management (F4WM) they are currently reimbursing you for killing wolves in Idaho for upto $1000, and killer gets to keep the

hide.
