North facing mountain sides for bears

Anyone think this is the way to go 100% I look at where most guys from our camp killed bears and none of them were on north facing slopes, give me some input!

Riding or hiding

SUn faces the south...It's where the thicker growth is....The mountain I live on runs directly east and west......South side has all the cover.

Yes sun does, but out by cabin in bald eagle s.f. It almost always thicker on the north side, laurel that is. Points are great, ridge tips, any guts is a top, especially if it connects other structure.

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

Re: North facing mountain sides for bears

We have killed 5 and missed 2 in the last 10 years at camp.
North side facing, 1 kill
East side facing, 1 Kill
South side facing 1 kill, 1 miss
West side facing, 1 kill
Top of mountain, 1 kill, 1 miss
Cover and food is the key, but all bears were within 200 yards of the top.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.
