My good friend Jerry booked a 2-bear hunt for our hunting group this spring with Shattuck Creek Outfitters. Jerry and I are both in the U.S. Army and decided that a Spring Black Bear hunt in Northern Idaho would be a nice way to enjoy some vacation time. We didn’t know what to expect, but we were confident that Amon and his guides at Shattuck Creek are the best in Idaho. We were right!! Each member of our hunting party bagged a bear. Two of us harvested two bears. I took both my bears on the same day! One was treed by Amon’s hard-working and well-trained dogs and the other mature boar came into bait. Shattuck Creek Outfitters kill bears! Many color phased bears were harvested, and everyone was thrilled at the bears they took.

The hospitality that Amon, his wife Barbara, and their 9 children showed us was so gracious. Barbara’s amazing dinner was much appreciated after sitting over bait. We were spoiled with the home cooked breakfast delivered every morning to our rooms. Each day was filled with amazing views of the Idaho mountains, four-wheeler rides along back roads, and great times with my friends. Our guide Luke was very knowledgeable and helpful. The lodging was great and we all had comfortable rooms in Elk River. Overall, this hunt with Shattuck Creek Outfitters was one of the most productive and enjoyable experiences I have ever had, and Lord willing we will hunt together soon.
