Bear Hunting

Spring Bear Hunts

Our spring bear hunts start April 15th and ends June 15th. We truly have the best bear hunting in the state of Montana. With every variation of color-phase black bears (brown, cinnamon, chocolate, brown, blonde and red) it is a great opportunity to harvest a truly amazing black bear. We take pride in harvesting older age class bears that are true trophies. Montana opened up hound hunting for bears in spring of 2022. We offered this to several clients as an upgrade and it was highly successful! Get your adrenalin rush, get in on the chase and hear the dogs baying. Our method of hunting is glassing clear cuts, south facing slopes, clover covered logging roads that are gated, and calling. During a spring bear you can expect to see many bears depending on the weather as our area has a very high concentration of black bears.

Fall Bear Hunts

Our fall bear/predator hunts start in September and run through November. Early in the fall season the black bears are filling their bellies on the last remaining berry crop in preparation of the upcoming hibernation they will soon be faced with. We glass and use the spot and stalk method at this time of the year. The bears can be seen this time of the year at all times of the day. During the fall bear season hunters can add elk and deer to their bear hunt.  You can also add the wolf to your list once the bear has been harvested.  Locate, call and pursue the wolf.  What a great predator adventure!

We are fortunate to have all color phases of black bear in our area. There are black, brown, cinnamon, blond, and black with a white diamond on the chest. This area has one of the highest color-phase ratings in the state. We also border a giant indian reservation that promotes an endless supply of older age class bears.

Bear Hunting Adventures by our Hunters

"The Chase with Leigh & Travis travels the world sharing camp with all types. This was an experience I will never forget. The beauty of Montana is not the only pictures in my head its the passion and beauty of the Carr Family is what will keep us coming back for years. True Montana Adventure! I shot my biggest bear to date and it was with a muzzleloader spot and stalk. Thanks Cody, KoLiss, Darren and everyone else that made it happen!"

"Cody Carr’s Hunting Adventures is an exceptional outfitting business. All of the guides are extremely well knowledged in the areas where the hunts occur. The accommodations are also fantastic! I have been successful in 2 out of 3 hunts so far. The spring 2015 bear hunt will be my fourth hunt with Cody Carr Hunting Adventures. Both of my sons have also experienced guided hunts with Cody Carr’s Hunting Adventure’s and our family has never been disappointed."

"I Paul Snarski had a great!!! time!!! This is the second time I have hunted with Cody. The last time was a bear hunt. This trip was also a bear hunt and I harvested a bear each time. I will be returning over Thanksgiving week for a elk/deer hunt. I hunted in the state of Montana 15 times in the last 20 years with three different outfitters. I would rate Cody Carr Hunting Adventures at the top of my experiences."

"I’ve been to Cody Carr’s about half a dozen times. Each time I have left with the trophy I came for. There’s tons of game, great people and amazing scenery. I’ve hunted enough places to know that Cody and his crew run a first-rate outfit. I’m constantly impressed by the professionalism displayed by all the people working to make my hunt a fantastic adventure. Cody will tailor your hunt to fit your goals and ability. That can mean spending your night’s miles deep in the wilderness in a spike camp, or coming back to the lodge to a warm bed every night. I’ve spent time with other outfitters that view clients as no more than a paycheck, their work is really done once you’re in camp. To Cody, you’re a hunter first… to be successful and enjoy your time off work is first and foremost. If I’m hunting the Rockies, I’m hunting with Cody Carr."

"Cody, just wanted to let you know how much Pam and I enjoyed our time with you, your family and guides. The trip was hands down the best I have ever experienced. You and your family strengthened my faith. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment spent in the lodge with the group. If I get to build my retirement home it will look a lot like your lodge. Wow, how cool! With the accommodations and your wife’s cooking, it doesn’t get better than this! I can’t wait to share camp with you again this coming fall. Strange how I came out with the sole purpose to shoot a bear and left with so much more than what a dead bear could provide. Take care, Tom."

"I john Ellis felt that everything was perfect. By the end of the hunt I didn’t want to leave, it really felt like it was home away from home. Everybody there is extremely friendly. I will definitely be back and already booked a bear hunt for next year."
