North American Hunts
New Mexico Black Bear With Hounds
This black bear hunt is conducted with the aid of well-trained hounds. Our outfitter has earned a reputation as one of the top producers of black bear in New Mexico. Over 50% of the bears are color phase which will vary in color from jet-black to blond, with cinnamon and brown phases also being quite common. Most of the bear hunting is done from horseback behind hard-driving hounds. You may also hunt from a truck with strike dogs on top of the box. Stand hunting can also be productive in the right situation, and is sometimes selected for hunters who are not up to the rigors of hound hunting. The area hunted is well known for producing large bears. Many bear have been harvested with skulls measuring over 20”. Overall success is 80%. This hunt can be combined with a variety of other species including cougar, antelope, elk and deer. Licenses are purchased over the counter.
