      Description

      This is a great hunt to get up in the backcountry and hunt big boars coming out of their den during the spring. It is best to hunt in middle of May into June when the snow has dissipated and the bears are moving and foraging. This is a spot and stalk hunt so hunter should be prepared for some moderate hiking with durable hunting boots and a good layering system. Outfitter will provide wall tents and a field kitchen during the hunt. Hunter will be required to take a course online before purchasing a black bear license. It is an easy course and can be re-taken until you pass. License must be purchased at least 24 hours before your first hunt day. RBO can assist you if you have further questions on how to complete these when booked.
