Third Time's The Charm

Idaho Backcountry Bear Hunting

Join the Author in a highly anticipated hunt in the Idaho backcountry!
"Bear hunting, in my opinion, is the most diverse kind of big game hunting because every hunt is so different than the next. From spot and stalk, baiting, or hound hunting, to the incredibly vast types of terrain that black bears live in, no two hunts are the same—that’s why I’m always open to new bear hunting adventures."
Join the Author in an adventure in the wild of Prince Of Wales.
"24-year-old Spencer Kloc from Freeland, Michigan wanted more of a challenge than a typical bear hunt over bait or with hounds during his first ever bear hunt during the fall of 2022 in the state’s Upper Peninsula (UP). His original goal was to ambush a bear utilizing a natural food source, but he ended up using a predator call to lure a bruin to him on the last day of his 16 day hunt. Calling bears is a popular method of bear hunting in the west, but is seldom used elsewhere. Kloc’s experience confirms the technique will work in the Midwest, too."

Nine Bear Year

"Throughout our years of bear hunting, we’ve figured out that the biggest key for success is to find their food source. In August, they feed primarily on berries: blueberries, huckleberries, or thimbleberries, to name a few. Before the season even starts we do quite a bit of e-scouting on our GoHunt maps and find the areas where those berries are most likely going to be ripe during the time we will be hunting."

Coincidence?

A Remarkable Concurrence Of Events Or Circumstances Without Apparent Causal Connection

"How much of hunting is luck? How much of a successful hunt is hard work, pre-planning, studying maps or harvest data? Is the end result simply a mathematical equation of carbs burnt, miles traveled vs. outcome? Is achievement a consequence of ones state of mind, or perhaps it’s the declaration of a divine will? Can you predict success, can one rely on good karma or is it all just one big coincidence?"
Join the Author in a hunt that may involve more than just experience.
