i've lived and hunted in pike and monroe county my whole life and know of no one who guides for bears.there is a few gangs in the area that get a few bears each year,but you would probably be better off trying to form your own gang as these gangs are made up of people who have hunted together for many years,learning the lay of the land and where the bears like to go.
Yes and no. My crew hunted for years together before I got a spot with them. Since the first week of deer is concurrent with bear this year, some of the crew won't be up, so we have room and our "wait list" of people wanting in will very likely be getting some phone calls.
