Montana Bears

I'm looking for a new spot to hunt spring bears in Montana this year. Hiked 8 miles in the stillwater country last spring saw lots of nice country and some sign but no bears. Thinking about northwest MT. Sounds like its the spot for spot and stalk. I'm willing to hike a few miles if I can see some bears. What do you guys think?

Re: Montana Bears

I am all about the pryors since they are not too far away usually they have like a 2 bear quota I think tho. I guess the early bird gets the worm.

Re: Montana Bears

I have never done it and have no plans to but I've heard the Crazies are good.

Re: Montana Bears

Mike,
My wife and I spend many days per year in the Pryor mountains and surrounding foothills. We mainly camp, ride ATVs, and shoot long range. I do bear hunt a little each spring, but the female quota of 2 usually gets filled in the first 10-15 days. There are definitely bears in certain areas as we see them all the time, but the spring snows sometimes make it difficult to get to the good areas on the north side.
