REO is excited to announce that we are now offering coastal Black Bear Hunts!
WASHINGTON BLACK BEAR HUNTING
Washington’s coastal areas have great bear densities providing excellent opportunities for a successful hunt. Since outlawing using hounds and bait stations in 1996, Washington bear populations have exploded. Our preferred method is spot and stalk, spending hours on the glass in clear cuts or slowly walking on grassy roads looking for feeding bears and making a move if needed for an ethical shot. Generally speaking, bear hunts are not as physical as an elk hunt. Washington state has a healthy bear population with an estimated 25,000 bears. REO has access to private land with great bear opportunity.
