Arizona’s black bears are secretive by nature and inhabit some of the most rugged, remote, and beautiful country in the state. No other state offers more color phase bears per-capita than Arizona and long OTC bear seasons make the Grand Canyon State one of the top bear hunting destinations out west! We offer clients two types of guided black bear hunts in Arizona and our experienced guides kill record book bears using each tactic. In fact, our success rate on BIG color-phase bears is unmatched anywhere in North America. Hunters can choose between a spot-and-stalk style hunt or a traditional hunt behind trained hounds. During a guided spot and stalk style bear hunt, clients can expect long glassing sessions for monster bruins before navigating through the rugged landscape to get in position for a shot. Or Clients can choose a guided bear hunt behind trained hounds. You’ll follow Arizona’s most tenacious pack of bear hounds into remote canyons in search of your trophy. Depending on the hunt location and your desired experience, we might hunt on foot, with a side-by-side, or off of mules–your choice! Whether you choose to hunt bears behind hounds, or prefer glassing for bears, your hunting experience will be second to none. It’s always such a rush of adrenaline when someone abruptly says “got a bear” while they’re glassing, and you know it could be “go time” very soon! Sometimes bears will be glassed up within rifle range of your first position, but usually we must get closer to the bear for a good shot. A flat-shooting rifle and confidence behind it come in quite handy. We like 7mm, 7PRC, 300WSM, 300 WIN, 300 PRC and other similar calibers for big boars in big Arizona bear country. Our OTC Arizona mountain lion hunts are world-renowned for fast-paced action and the highest success rate in the West! Watching your knowledgeable and experienced mountain lion guide work his relentless hounds amid Arizona’s picturesque backcountry is an unforgettable experience. By using mules and horses, you and the team will have access to Arizona’s best lion habitat, and the trophy toms that live there.

We offer guided bear hunts during all of Arizona’s OTC bear seasons (Spring and Fall), however the use of dogs is prohibited during the spring hunt. Our crews, regardless of season or hunt style, are considered Arizona’s most driven and successful bear guides. Many of our guides live in small towns amid Arizona’s most productive bear country. Experience gives them the upper hand and our clients benefit from their close connection to the areas we hunt. If you’re looking for a first class Arizona bear hunting experience, you’ve found it with any of our adrenaline filled OTC hunt options. It’s up to you to choose your adventure. Arizona’s fall bear hunts are one of our most popular over the counter options and clients can choose between glassing or pursuit with hounds. There are two distinct OTC bear seasons in August and September, plus a later season during October and November that is just as incredible and productive. Any fall bear hunt in Arizona could lead you on an adventure that culminates with killing the biggest bear of your life. Tags for most of Arizona’s spring bear hunts are also available over the counter. We’ve killed some of our biggest boars during Arizona’s spring bear season and our success rate is historically very high during these early season bear hunts. These hunts are a great option for anyone that wants a quiet spot and stalk style hunt in Arizona’s high-country with the chance at a monster bear. The privacy and serenity are top-notch during spring bear hunts! These guided lion hunts are conducted on over 13,000,000 acres of public and private land across Arizona and our full-time lion guides are in the field year-round to ensure you’re in the action during your hunt! An extensive list of ranchers, game wardens, and private landowners will alert our team to lions on occasion. We could be helping out a rancher by hunting a cat that’s been predating on cattle or start the trail from a deer or elk kill shared by one of our game warden contacts.
