Goin on my first bear hunt this november

i will be hiking into the Allegheny forest and camping over three days any suggestions on what to take

already have a camp stove, water filter and other basic items but i have never been bear hunting and any advice would be much appreciated

Aim small to miss small and put a RAGE in the cage.

Some orange clothing, a rifle and some bullets too!

Re: Goin on my first bear hunt this november

topo maps, zero degree or better rated sleeping bag, and a well thought out plan with a back-up plan. is that a solo trip?

Re: Goin on my first bear hunt this november

Have a plan on how the heck you'll get a bear out once you get one down. Nothing worse than walking up to your dead bear, feeling real good, then looking around seeing no one around, look at cell phone, [censored] no cell service.. Now what?
