Trophy Himalayan Bear Hunts

Male Himalayan Bear make impressive trophies, reaching heights ranging from 10 feet to almost 11 feet tall, weigh between 1,200 and 1,400 pounds and have a Boone and Crocket (B&C) score rating of at least 27″+ for males. These magnificent animals have large, powerful bodies with huge paws, claws, teeth and exquisite fur pelts.

Physical Characteristics

The typical Himalayan bear will measure from 9 feet to 10.5 feet tall and generally weigh between 600 and 1,200 pounds with a large pronounced hump on its back. Like black bears, Himalayan bears vary widely in color and can range from dark brown through light blond and even red-ish brown. The winter coat is heavy and dense and provides substantial protection against the northern and arctic cold temperatures.

Brown bears eat a variety of foods including everything from moose and caribou, ground squirrels, fish to berries, grasses, sedges, horsetails, cow parsnips and roots of many kinds of plants.

Ecology/Behavior/Social Characteristics

Except for breeding pairs and females with offspring, bears are typically solitary creatures and avoid the company of other bears. Groups will come together where food sources are concentrated such as at streams where bears catch salmon swimming upstream during the spawn.
