    Looking for ideas on a bear hunt for 2014. Looking for public land. Preferably a spring hunt.

    I would strongly suggest hunting with Tim Picket he owns and runs Southern Oregon Outfitters. He's got it dialed in for spring bear in Oregon. Killed my biggest bear yet ( and probably ever!) This last spring. Lots of quality bears , good genetics .

    Where do you live, how far are you willing to travel & how's the budget? Many States have a point/draw system, it may take 8 years to draw.

    You can start doing that, or go somewhere with easier stats to get a license. Then there is the Canadian option, or AK.
