Looking for tips

To anyone who is a serious bear hunter and has had success I have questions. First off I know that bear have a large travel radius etc. but if you have a particular bear on a camera and consistently in the area what is the likelihood that they will hang around come bear season? Wondered if anyone has experienced seeing a bear during deer season and was a ble to get a shot at the bear when the season came in

Re: Looking for tips

The only bear I had a shot at was a constant visitor to my archery stand.If he's there in Oct and the food is still there, you will have a decent chance of seeing him.Try to figure out his schedule with your game cameras

Re: Looking for tips

the food around in october will dwindle long before the end of november.bears also won't travel far from the slleeping area to a food sight. if it takes more calories than they can consume to get foodthey wont be there. i would find a spot that has great cover with some food that will be available when season comes around. i've killed 4 and been along with close to 90 kills. we drive in a gang. best way to get them moving

Nasty thick bedding cover within yards of a good feeding area.

Re: Looking for tips

Exactly what Strut10 said. We hunt in stands in the thickest mountain luarel which has a standing corn field about 200 yards above it and more standing corn throughout the area. The area we hunt is deep pine hollows and thick, thick mountain laurel hillsides, with oaks so when there is a good mast crop of acorns its even better. But the thicker the better. Mountain laurel is the key if its in your area and find a food source. Find the food and you'll find the bear.
