I am not a fan of the muzzleloader bear season admittedly for selfish reasons. Was thinking about it yesterday and came to the realization if I actually wanted to partake in it I would more than likely just stand/still hunt for them and not participate in drives. Driving for bears often involves going through nasty places . Crawling on your hands and knees through mountain laurel. Walking through bolder fields and thick clear cuts. Vegetation at that time still will not have all died off . There is just no way I would be willing to do that with rattlesnakes still being out of their dens. It actually sounds totally insane to me.
bohunr and little antlers like this.

For bear, big 'n heavy is the ticket. Lead, or a quality partition bullet will do the job. Hey....if a 30-06 with a 220gr. bullet will do the job, so will a 405gr. zipping along at 1,500fps.

The only dependable thing about the Powerbelts is the accuracy.

Am I reading the season information wrong? Muzzleloader bear starts on Oct 19, but archery bear doesn't start until Oct 28 ... So I can't use a bow for a bear during the muzzleloader season?

I suspect it will work like any other rifle season. Approved archery devices would be a lesser arm, and therefore hunters allowed to harvest a bear using them during that week.

As long as you have a muzzle loader stamp, too.

Bigfoot saw me but nobody believes him!

That's not how I interpreted the press release. Archery gets their own season.
