Spring season offers the most opportune time to harvest bear in the Idaho Rockies. HCO operates in prime bear country and brings a unique approach to the sport of bear hunting. We harvest black bear of various different color phases including blonde, chocolate, cinnamon, black and combinations. Coats are thick and make for wonderful trophies. HCO does not offer fall stand alone bear hunts, but incidental bear can be an add-on in the fall.
