Not if sign is there, and maybe pressure around. Acorns everywhere.

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

Re: Bear hunting Lycoming

depends on drives in the area, could make for a few hrs of excitement and many more hours of very tough, pushed ground.

we have a group of 15 going up and plan to start driving on opening light saturday and go straight through to dark.

good luck

Re: Bear hunting Lycoming

I'll be hunting the same area around Slate Run. The bear we find in the thick stuff are usually hunkered down. If there will be people walking through the laurel you may have a shot but it'll be quick and you better be ready as seeing through that stuff is a nightmare. Most of the bear we see are on the sides of the mountains but cross back and forth over the tops. If you can get to the edge of the laurel so you can see into it as well as over the side I would think that's your best bet. We always see bear traveling the edges. With their poor eyesight they like to be able to see a good distance but have the laurel if they need to duck into cover so the edges always seem to be a good spot.
