Black Bear outfits here in the States...

@johnnyblues - thought of an outfitter up near where my in-laws used to live in MT - Swan Mountain Outfitters (at the edge of Flathead Valley - near Kalispell). They're about 3500 for a 5-day. Their gallery looks like maybe a couple in the 300# range, and lots of color variation. @Montana Rifle Company might be able to shed some light on them.

Reviving a dead thread because next Spring, my youngest will be done with all of his pilot training and will be able to put in for some leave time.

My son and I would both prefer spot and stalk. I'm finding more than a few deals in the 5500-6000 range for the pair of us and a 5 day hunt, 1 bear each. Does that sound about right?
 
Following as I am also in the market for a bear hunt but I'm leaning toward a hound deal.

If considering New Mexico then go for:


Funny thing I realized when I pulled the web site up for the link. The bear that is pictured on the main page is the one I took some years ago.

my son and I are definitely about the spot and stalk. thanks for the info. may have found a place near Noxon right next to the ID border.
 
Try b Bar c in Idaho. Two bear limit and lots of color phase bears. Baited , hounds or a combo hunt. They have a great place in Maine too. That is called Russell pond outfitters. I never went to their place in Idaho but went to Maine three times with them. Had a great time and killed bears every time. Lots of repeat customers that told me to go to Idaho if I wanted color phase. A few years later I ended up going to Alberta and found a cinnamon bear .

Russell pond has a good reputation. Tyler Kelly camps in Allagash is also a great bear outfit.

looking for sleeping bag and boot recommendations

I have a pair of these LaCrosse 18" with thinsulate, but guessing these won't work very well in the mountains.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?
Thanks,
Gary (Just down the road in Springfield)

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
