Dauphin County Game lands Bear Numbers

Hello Community:

Looking to see if anyone can give me some advice on the best place to start for Bear Hunting in Dauphin County.

Usually Hunt Pocono Region but want to bring the gang to Dauphin County for a Day.

Group of 15-20 Hunters want to post and drive for a full day.
SGL 211 and 210 are huge and from my understanding choke full of bear.
Also open to any other spots in Dauphin County that have bears (problem Bears) etc....

Any guidance is appreciated.

Can't comment on the # of bears, but as for terrain, SGL 211 and 210 will easily keep your gang busy for a day. You could probably keep busy for a week.

I've hunted 211 since 1986. I wouldn't call it "chock full of Bears" but they're certainly there in decent numbers. The farther back in you get the better chance you have of running into a Bear.
