A nice tom that Nick sacked up on Friday with a round of TSS at 43 yards. The TSS dropped that bird like it was a 20 yard shot. Congrats Nick!

Here's a photo of Keith with "Baldy", we tried to get this bear last year and it never worked out, this year Anthony got on him with the hounds and he was the first bear taken. He measured 6-8 x 6-10. Congrats Keith on a dandy boar!

The hounds got after another good boar the next day and ended up treed up in the snow, you can hardly see the bear in the tree but Nate managed to put a good shot in him and dropped him. This one was a 6 footer. Nice shooting Nate!  :hello:

Another Berger Bullet Fail
Brian & Anthony started another bear hunt this morning. Brian got onto another big boar bear early this morning, this was a mean bear but the dogs finally got him up a tree. The lady hunter hit the bear perfect in the chest and the bear hit the ground running, the dogs on it's heels, the bear was wounded pretty good but went about 400 yards before baying up again, sadly the bear managed to grab one of Brian's best bear dogs and bit him badly and mauled him badly too. The bear went another 400 yards and bayed again, this time the hunters made it there and finished off the bear.  Upon skinning the bear it was determined that the bullet blew up after entry and only a few fragments made it into the lungs. I have a severe disliking for those worthless berger bullets, this is just another epic fail by a hunter using them! It nearly cost the life of one of our very best hounds! They are doctoring the dog now, we'll keep a close eye on him, hopefully he makes a recovery. The bear is right at a 6 footer, I'll get photos rounded up when I can.

Another Turkey Hunt Complete
Tom got his 2nd bird this morning with Ray, an 8 inch 2 year old, he has already packed up and left for his next hunt in Oregon and then Idaho after that. He said he wants to hunt Washington again and will be back. Thanks again Tom, it was our pleasure having you here for the hunt! :tup:

Very sorry to hear about the hound, hope he recovers well.

I also have a strong dislike for them. At close range the bergers are useless. Lots of guys swear by them but I have seen to many first hand fails and to many horror stories from guys I trust. Lots of guys push them on here and they have there place but close range high velocity is not and they fail the majority of the time. They were not designed for high velocity impacts they turn to dust before getting into vitals. Lots of "one shot kills" and when you look at the pics plenty got multiple bergers. Very sorry your dog has to suffer over a poor choice in a bullet by the hunters.

First Washington Bear Hunt A Success
Dave hunted with Daniel, yesterday on the third day of the hunt they got it done. They had been glassing an area when Daniel heard a grouse fly, then a few seconds later heard a twig, then heard something step on a pine cone right behind them, he looked behind them and saw a pair of ears coming, he nudged Dave and whispered "There's a bear behind us", then a head appeared, then the whole bear, it was only about 10 yards behind them at that point, Dave turned and made a quick shot, whammo, nice boar cinnamon bear down! Good job Dave!  :tup: :tup:
(I'll post a photo after I get them rounded up)

WA Bear Hunt Available Now!
After finishing Dave's hunt early, plus we have a few more days until the next bear hunter arrives, we have room for another bear hunter this week if there are any WA tag holders wanting a highly successful guided hunt. Right now is the best hunting, spring broke fast and bear have been out for three weeks now, hunting will start downhill soon, don't wait, come kill a bear with us now. Bear Hunts are 5 days, can break it up over weekends if necessary.

Idaho Bear Hunts Available for 2020
We are booked full for this spring but have plenty of openings right now for next spring, in May or June, it's a one bear hunt with a two bear option, located in northern Idaho.

Turkey Hunts
Bird hunting will be good for another week or so then it will start fading fast, some birds are starting to shut down now, about a week earlier than usual. I have room for a couple more turkey hunters if anyone wants to get a bird or two this spring. We have only had 1 hunter who didn't get a bird the whole season so far and he should have had one. Most hunters have notched both tags. I also still have 4 hunts available for the opener next spring, these hunts are rarely available as most hunters rebook our first week year after year.

Contact Dale
Send me a pm or call 509-684-6294
(I'm often out of service most of the day but try to check in a couple times a day and will return your message or pm as soon as possible)

Another good bear down in Idaho and a good one missed, two hunters are tagged out now, the third hunter swapped guns so hopefully he gets the next bear he shoots at.

Here's a photo of the bear taken in Washington the other day.

How's the hound doing Dale?

Nice looking bears and turkeys!!!!!

We got him on antibiotics right away to prevent infection, he layed around for 2 days but is on his feet again today and moving around some, we think he's going to be OK. Hounds are pretty tough as long as you prevent infection and organs or bones aren't damaged. I'm hopeful he'll be able to hunt next week or the week after, we'll see.

Idaho
They got on a runner yesterday that outran all the hounds, lol. This morning they got on another runner that made some loops and mixed up part of the hounds but some of the dogs managed through the loops and finally caught it after a good long chase, not as big as the bear the guy missed at the bait but he was happy. All three hunters are tagged out now, dogs and guides can get a couple days of rest before the next group arrives.

Washington
Another mature bird down yesterday, Clint filled both tags early and had most of a day and night to relax before his flight home to Utah this morning. Started another hunt this morning, a couple hunters from California, my fingers are crossed for continued success. We've noticed some of the birds are starting to shut down, some mornings they aren't gobbling at all, but we are still pretty confident we'll notch tags.

Clint's two birds...

Tom came from Tennessee to work on his slam. His first bird was a little buff and he was hoping for a nice white one. My wife spotted a nice looking bird she told us about so the next day we put tom in a blind close to where we thought the bird might be, it worked out perfectly, his second bird was really nice and white, he was a happy camper, congrats Tom! :tup:
