My bear hunting career began when I was 16. Bear hunting has never been a sideline for me but a way of life. 2012 marks my 31st bear hunting season.
Early spring finds us hauling in bear bait to our lower baits. As the snow recedes, we start packing in bait on our horses and mules. As the season progresses, we ride farther and higher into the backcountry where we hunt remote and non-motorized areas.
We hunt both Grey's River and Jackson quotas giving us more area and opportunity than any other outfitter in Wyoming.
We feel what separates us from the rest is the remoteness of the country we access which is where the big bears live. Other outfitters use ATV access to stock baits and hunts, but if there is ATV access to these areas, it means that the general public also has access to these areas. Keep that in mind when booking any bear hunt.
We usually take some of the biggest bears in the State of Wyoming and have a very high overall sucess rate. Just this October, Bob Barlow/Barlow Outfitting was written up in the Rocky Mountain Game & Fish Magazine as the bear hunter to go with if hunting in Wyoming. See the article Bears in the West, Hotspots & Tips, under the Wyoming Section.
There are always plenty of active baits for hunters to choose from, at least 3 to 4 per hunter. Baits are stocked midday and hunters go out in the evenings to hunt. Hunters need to be willing to stay mobile and ready to move to new or more active baits if needed. The ability to stay mobile has greatly increased our hunter's success.
Color is the rule not the exception with black bear in Western Wyoming. Most Bears are brown, cinnamon, blonde or reddish in color; we do kill a black colored bear on occasion.
Spring is a beautiful time of year to spend in Wyoming. Included in your cost of the hunt is lodging and meals, which we have been told are alone are worth the hunt.
Think how a trophy black bear pelt will make your spring more enjoyable!
