Bear Lake

Hunting in the Bear Lake calley dates back to the early settlers, native American and mountain men that first laid eyes on this area.  Game birds and big game animals thrived in the valley.

Today, the magestic Rocky Mountain Elk (wapiti), the regal Mule Deer and the unique Siras moose are elusive quarry of the big game hunters.  These healthy herds of game animals need to be managed through the use of hunting in order to ensure their survival.  State wildlife managers carefully review local winter range carrying capacities, the ratio of males to females, and fawn mortality surveys to determine the availability of hunting permits and tags.  popular hunting equiment includes cartridge and black powder rifles and archery equipment such as compoun, lon, and recurve bows.  other local animals that have hunting and/or trapping seasons include: ducks, geese, sage grouse, gray partridge, blue and ruffed grouse, black bears bobcats, mountain lions (cougars), coyotes, fox and wild turkey.  Occasionally, reports come in with sightings of rare and protected animals such as wolverine, lynx, grizzly bears (and even Bigfoot!) however, few sightings are confirmed, if any.  Wolves are now known to be increasing in numbers in the area. No hunting season is available for these animals and actually carry a large fine and possible jail time if found with possession of one of these protected species.
