Jim Burnsworth from the Outdoor Channel Television Show "Western Extreme" calls the Quinault Reservation the "Best Big Bear Hunting in all of North America!"

Join us as we pursue some of the largest Coastal Black Bears you will ever see anywhere. A large percentage of the bears harvested here are big block headed boars that will score well over 19-20 inches in skull, measure over 7 feet plus nose to tail in length and will be in the 350-500 pound range. Hunts are conducted from either tree stands or ground blinds depending on the hunt set up and the weather. We hunt exclusively over bait stations that are consistently monitored by game cameras and are check on and baited on a daily basis. Our hunt access is over 320,000 acres on the Quinault Reservation that is closed to public entry.

Like in Alaska, the abundant runs of Sockeye, Chinook, Silvers, Steelhead, and Chum salmon that enter the Quinault, Queets, and Clearwater rivers provide abundant food for black bears. This source of enhanced protein is what puts on the pounds and creates the growth on the coastal bears of the Quinault Reservation.


No Washington State big game license or tag required. Quinault Nation Tags are sold over the counter. Our Guide only hunts the prime bear hunting dates.

Black Bears live in very dense cover so it is important to drop the animal as quickly as possible…a badly wounded bear is considered a kill as it is with virtually all guided hunts. Our guides are proven experts and will make that determination.

All harvested animals will be field dressed, skinned with meat quartered ready for client to return home. Meat and Hide cold storage will be provided during hunt.

Customers must provide any required transport or shipping containers. All shipping costs, taxidermy and meat processing of animals harvested are the responsibility of the hunter. Hunters may donate bear meat to Quinault Tribal Nation
