Goals

Foundation Goals

Our focus is to ensure a future the of bears and bear hunting in the Western United States.

Right Now we have three major goals as an organization

  • 1. Get funding for a more indepth population study of Black Bears in 3 States of Wyoming, Idaho, Montana. Especially in areas where a black bear co-exist with the larger more aggressive grizzly bear.
  • 2. We would like to have a better understanding on how a larger predator can effect the black bear and their ability to adapt and grow. Many areas in all states have not have in-depth studies done in years. Mostly due to "Higher Priorities" that pull funding from commission budgets.
  • 3. Plain and Simple; Delist the Grizzly Bear in Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. By doing so creating more hunting opportunities for the sportsperson.

Mission

We are dedicated to the protection & development of bears, bear habitat, & bear hunting in the Rocky Mountain West.

Why

There is a lack of support for bears and bear hunters in the west especially in the states of Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. Many of our states resources go into deer, elk, wolf, moose & the grizzly bear.

Increase in large predator populations like the wolf & grizzly bear could adversely affect black bear populations. The large predator issues take state & federal focus from a continued study & understanding of the black bear & black bear hunting opportunities. In these times it is essential to study & better understand the black bear & their habitat, more importantly how the black bear can co-exist with a much larger predator in the grizzly bear.
