Experience the thrill of a high-quality black bear hunt with OMM Outfitters, where adventure meets excellence. Our expansive territory, spanning nearly 100 square miles, offers exclusive opportunities for hunters of all disciplines, from rifle and archery to black powder and shotgun enthusiasts.

For a truly unique experience, opt for our exclusive Boat Access hunts, immersing yourself in the serene solitude of Eagle Lake State Reserve. Or, for those seeking an adrenaline-fueled pursuit, join our experienced houndsmen for an exhilarating hound hunting expedition.

Choose between two distinct methods: traditional bear hunting over bait or the excitement of hound hunting. Whichever you prefer, OMM Outfitters guarantees success rates well above average. Our skilled guides utilize trail cameras to enhance tracking success and ensure seamless communication with private channel 2-way radios.

After a day in the wilderness, retreat to our comfortable lakeside log cabins, complete with private baths.
