Washington Hunting Details

Enjoy Washington's most successful hunting areas for Northwestern Whitetail Deer hunting, Merriam’s Turkey hunting, color phase Bear hunting, and Shiras Moose hunting Grouse hunting, and Cougar hunting. There's also excellent hunting for Mule Deer, Bighorn Sheep, Coyote, Waterfowl, and Elk, plus there’s plenty of great fishing for Trout and Walleye in local waters.

Bearpaw Outfitters offer guided and unguided hunts from their Washington hunting lodge. Hunt some of the best private ranch hunting leases and mountain hotspots in eastern Washington. Bearpaw Outfitters have outfitted hunters for over 30 years in this area so they know the best areas for hunting all the various game species.



Location and Terrain

Based near Colville, a small town in Northeast Washington close to Idaho and British Columbia, Bearpaw Outfitters are located right in the heart of Washington’s most productive game country. This area is consistently the top producing whitetail deer, bear, moose, cougar, turkey, and grouse hunting area in the entire state. This is simply great game country. 

The terrain includes forested rolling mountains and fertile valley farmlands. There are good proportions of evergreen forests, logging cuts, natural openings, and croplands. This area is not as rugged as most other western areas which makes it more enjoyable for many hunters.


Hunting Methods

Hunters use stands or blinds near game trails, alfalfa fields, feeding areas, waterholes, and logging cuts. Other effective methods include glassing, spot & stalking, short brush drives, and driving mountain logging roads. 


Physical Condition

Your physical condition is not that important. Anyone can enjoy a high degree of success regardless of their physical condition because the terrain is mild and the best hunting methods for most species involve sitting and glassing.


Hunting Areas

Private Ranches:  The hunting leases range in size up to 2500 acres and offer excellent hunting with high success rates. These hunting leases are perfect for hunters with the patience to sit and watch feeding areas. Limited hunting is allowed on each property in order to maintain quality.

Mountain Hunts:  Numerous mountain locations offer some of the best trophy hunting in Washington. There's not as many animals per square mile in the Mountains as on the Ranches, but the trophy potential is some of the best in the northwest. These Mountain Hunts are ideal for hunters who like to cover a lot of country when hunting.


The Outfitters

Dale was born and raised in Northeast Washington and his wife Tara has lived in Washington since childhood. In 1977 Dale started guiding hunters and since then Dale and Tara have slowly expanded their outfitting business.

With 30 years of outfitting experience in NE Washington, Dale, Tara, and their family have endured the test of time. The Denney Family and their crew of experienced guides have outfitted hunters from around the world, of all ages and backgrounds. Regardless of your age or amount of hunting experience, Dale & Tara have a hunt that’s just right for you.


Guiding Options

Guided:  Several guide ratios are offered that include accommodations, guiding, and game care.

Semi-Guided:  Hunt on your own, with help in camp to advise hunting areas and assist you with your game.

Unguided:  Several unguided options are offered with various accommodations, hunting advice, and maps.



Lodge & Cabin:  The facilities are only 10 to 60 minutes from most hunting areas and include meals in the dining room, pool table in the den, indoor bathrooms, bunk beds in the cabins, and a lighted game cleaning area with water for cleanup. Groups of up to 16 can be accommodated.

Motel “Town Hunts”:  Motels are only minutes from most of the hunting areas. Guided hunters are picked up and returned to their room each day. Unguided hunters must provide their own transportation. Your room and meals are not included so budget about $30 per day.


Licenses & Hunter Ed

Hunters of any age can purchase hunting licenses over the counter. Youth licenses are half price (even for non-resident youth). First time hunters are allowed a one time deferral from the Hunter Ed requirements. All other hunters need Hunter Ed if born after Jan 1, 1972. 


Hunter Orange

Hunters must wear 400 square inches above the waist during rifle deer, rifle elk, and Upland Bird seasons. 


Spokane Airport

The Airport is less than 2 hours from Bearpaw Outfitters. Check the Resources Page for flight and rental car info.


Driving Directions

From I-90 in Spokane follow Hwy 395 north 70 miles to Colville, then follow Hwy 20 east for 3 miles to Bearpaw. 


Taxidermy and Meat Processing

Both services are available locally for a fee, or you may choose to transport your trophy and carcass home. Meat processing is usually done in a day or two.
