Where Bear ? in 5C

I just updated my calendar with all the hunting dates for the year. I live near Allentown in zone 5C and noticed there are a bunch of new dates for bear hunting in 5C with overlapping seasons too. Any ideas on where to begin looking for bear in 5C? I typically hunt 4C for bear near Hamburg/Eckville but not in the Lehigh Valley area. Thanks folks.

Re: Where Bear ? in 5C

SGL 168 up by Wind Gap...can't tell ya how many bears get taken out on rt 33 right there. My wife almost hit two last year and I know of at least four others that were killed. It's like the bear express...

I know it's right on the border of 5C and 3D...not exactly sure where the cut off is.

Thanks, Just checked the map, and the Blue Mountain area is over the border in the next zone, so that's not part of the plan. It looks like SGL 205 or private land so far.

Re: Where Bear ? in 5C

It would be a very nice experience to come across one during the October muzzleloader season. So many different opportunities for bear this year in 5C, B and D
