Washington Black Bear Hunting
Guided Black Bear hunts in the Seattle areas North Cascades offering a military discount.

Our custom tailored Black Bear hunts are conducted for the most part in the foothills of the scenic and majestic North Cascade mountains, just a two hour drive north of Seattle, by either John Koenig of John's Guide Service or one of our hand selected and experienced associate guides.

The evening before your hunt you will be met either by John or one of our associate guides to discuss the plans of your hunt which may involve a combination of driving, stalking, tree-stand or ground-blind hunting in one of our previously scouted hunting areas.

All of our local hunting areas are scouted on a regular basis to ensure resident game species have not moved on and remain in the area.

Our Black Bear season begins in August just as our local wild berries begin to ripen in the mountain meadows in which we primarily target our area black bear.

It is not at all uncommon to see more than one bear at a time roaming through a lush blueberry field from one of our hunting stations during a morning's hunt and our high-mountain berry fields generally hold plenty of bear up until early October even after most of the berries are gone. By then we've usually seen our first accumulations of snow at these higher elevations and move our hunts to lower elevations where bear can be found fattening themselves up just before the winter season.

Our Black Bears range in color from pure black, to color phase cinnamon, brown, to all black with a tuft of white on their chest.

Upon completion of your hunt your game will be dressed immediately and caped accordingly to ensure quality and freshness for your trip home. We have and are always gathering information from reputable taxidermists in the area and can make arrangements for you there as well with a taxidermist John would highly recommend.

Whether you choose a single day hunt or a multiple day hunt, all lodging, food, tags and licenses will be your responsibility but we will be happy to help in making arrangements for your stay.
