Bear hunting with my 11 year old

I want to have my boy sit with me while bear hunting.thought this would make a good memory that would last a life time for him.the problem is I dont know what and where to go if I could just get a few guys to give up a little info on some gamelands that hold bear.getting a bear I Really dont expect but the experince that it will provide my boy is priceless.We live close to pittsburgh but I am willing to travel to increase the odds a little.we just plan on scouting a day to find a nice place to sit and watch for bears.any info is much appreciated!

SGL 43 in Ligoneer is good too.

Linn Run State Park and the surrounding state forest near Ligonier is a good place to check out. They also rent cabins in Linn Run but it may be too late.

Harvesting imature game removes future trophies. Patience is rewarded.

Re: Bear hunting with my 11 year old

Driving out to look around today on 51 since it is closer.and bagging a bear is only a bonus if it happens.time in the woods together is what is the real importance.we have been trapping and did manage to catch a real big male coyote and about 8 xxl coon.my son is showing some interest in the outdoors and that is what my intent has been his school has a teachers strike so he has been able to go every day.thanks every one again for the info again! good luck to all
