Miles High Outfitters offers an extremely high success rate hunt with a special emphasis on taking mature boars. A respectable bear in this area starts in the mid-200 pound range with our largest boars approaching 500 pounds. range.
As to the colors, here is where we get our name: Idaho Bears range from jet black to as blonde as Marilyn Monroe’s hair and everything in between.
Our bear hunting is truly some of the best you will find because of the resources that our area has to offer. Most of the bears we hunt have never seen humans due to the fact that they have a large wilderness area to use as security in which to mature. Miles High Outfitters offers bait, spot stalk and hound pursuit, depending on our client’s choice of hunt.
This is a great opportunity to get together with a group of buddies or have a one-on-one hound hunt to experience the peace that the outdoors has to offer.
Bait hunts are for people of all experience levels and for those who want it to be easier on their pocketbooks and still have a great chance for that bear of a lifetime. Hunting over bait gives you a better chance to pick and choose the right bear for you. You have the ability to sit quietly and judge your trophy and making sure it’s the one you want to take home, whether it be mounted life-size or made into a beautiful rug. We usually set up trail cameras on our bait sites so that we can set you on the site we know has the biggest bears and the most activity. Baits greatly increase the chance of you taking the trophy you want.

Our hound hunts are for the person who wants more excitement on their trip. This method of hunting bears is as physical as it gets in the hunting world, so to enjoy your experience you should be in good physical condition. Some people love the emotional connection they have with the hounds who put their lives on the line to assure them their trophy. You will, by the end of your hunt, know each hound’s name and each person will have their special dog that they have bonded with. These hunts will take place early in the morning so the hounds can catch the scent of their quarry before the scent burns of with the sunlight. You will be hunting behind the best proven hounds in the country. We take no shortcuts with our hounds; they can and will get the job done for you. If you are a thrill seeker, hound hunting is for you.
SPOT AND STALK
We also offer spot and stalk black bear hunts. There are some advantages to
spot & stalk bear hunting versus baited bear hunts. Mainly it’s personal preference though. These hunts usually take place looking over large vistas for foraging bruins. This allows you to relax and take in the wonder that is spring time in nature. You’ll be glassing for marauding bruins who are out looking for fresh green growth or looking to steal a calf from an unsuspecting cow elk. This is truly a chance to hunt the bears on their level and witness nature at it’s best first hand.
