Black Bear - Hunting Information

Idaho has a healthy population of black bears. Even though they are called black bears, the coloring of Idaho's bears are also cinnamon, brown and some have blazes. Hunters can pursue bears with hounds or use bait stations. Nonresident deer and elk tags may also be used to harvest a black bear or mountain lion.
