Your Experience


The state of Utah offers limited-entry drawings for Black Bear. The unit that our ranch lies within is called the South Slope/Diamond Mountain Unit. A person must put an application to the state for a drawing of one of these permits. If you draw we would love to take you hunting on our ranch. We have a good number of bear on our property with some prospects of very large bears. These hunts are conducted with the use of highly trained and experienced hound dogs, and boy what a thrill!
