Hunt the Wild Side of the
South for Black Bear!
We do not offer spring bear hunting and our
bears are not color phase.
We do not provide hunting licenses as it is all free range, fair chase
hunting the old fashioned way.
We are not hunting bear with dogs this
season. We hunt black bear during the fall and
winter. We cannot hunt bear over food as bait in any state we hunt. We can
still hunt using burn sticks and sow bear urine as an attractant. We can
also spot and stalk hunt your game.
We hunt bear the old fashioned way like David
Crockett did back in 1825.

The first day of the hunt is not the time to try to break in a pair of
new boots. We hunt in wooded, mountainous terrain so rubber boots suitable
for swamp hunting and tennis shoes will not work in our area.
It is also advisable to bring a canteen of water as you will definitely work
up a thirst. If you have a pocket camera bring that also, but most of our
guides carry cameras with them.
Shot range on bear hunts is usually 30-40 yards. You probably won't need
a scope on your rifle or shotgun. Choice of weapons include archery,
primitive weapons, shotguns and rifles or even handguns. High caliber rifles
are recommended with at least 180+ grain bullets. Shotguns must be used with
slugs. Handguns must have at least a 5 1/2 inch barrel and be at least above
