Re: Bear territory
Their territories do overlap. There should be couple males in the same area. They do however steer clear of each other.
Chances are the males in the area are nocturnal. As they get older, they tend to move within the last hour of daylight and after dark. Hence the reason you are seeing the sows with cubs in the daytime, while the males are sleeping in the deep woods.
If your not already, focus your hunting time in the evenings. That will give you the best chance of seeing a big male.
Are you spot and stalk, ambush or stand hunting?
