At Bear Bonez Outfitter we, as hunters and avid outdoorsmen and women, take pride in what our organization stands for. Our pride, and our promise, ensures that our customers take home trophy sized skulls of 17” or greater – and the memories that go along with them.
With this promise, Bear Bonez allows the smaller bears within the habitat to grow. Doing so guarantees the presence of bears of great size within the locale.
Due to our unique location, we hold a dense population of bears – meaning we don’t run the risk of depopulation in this area. In an effort to achieve the best experience for our customer, we have set up trail cameras at every bait site, allowing us to see which bears frequent these sites and giving us the option to choose the right bear to target. Come join us for your next hunt, and it’s our promise that you will find no better outfitter, and no better hunting destination.
