Thinking about a spring over the counter bear hunt, suggestions?
I'd love to take a black bear and a spring hunt would work out better due to a baby on the way this summer. I've hunted Colorado and Utah about a dozen times all together for deer and elk but not bear. I've seen quite a few black bears, some fairly close so I know what they look like.
I think Idaho, Montana and Wyoming offer over the counter nonresident spring bear tags, correct me if I am wrong. Any suggestions on good areas for a DIY rifle bear hunt such as spot and stalk or still hunting logging roads?
I don't want to pack way back in but not opposed to hiking a little bit. I'm a decent shot and a nonsmoker. Thanks!
