It may be hard to believe, but Arizona is known for some of the best black bear hunting in the country. Arizona offers some extraordinary trophy bear hunting with many record book bears harvested every year. Some tags are through the Arizona draw process, but over the counter black bear tags are also available during certain times of the year. The black bears are primarily hunted by spotting and stalking and occasionally by setting water. However, the use of the calling method provides a lot of excitement as well. Each year it’s not uncommon to see a variety of color phase black bears (brown, cinnamon, chocolate, black, and blonde) as well as multiple bears on your hunt. Give us a holler, so we can tell you about more this special opportunity and adventure.
