I'm kicking around some ideas for my spring bear hunt this year. I have archery hunted black bear in Maine but only once and I don't really have a lot of experience with the black bears so I thought I would run some ideas by you all and get your thoughts. Spring black bear hunt in Wyoming. Spot and stalk horseback type hunt. I'm trying to figure out which rifle is best suited for this hunt. If any of you hunt Bridger Teton area let me know what you think. I believe the 308 is plenty big enough and probably sports plenty of power out to the 400yd ish range but I don't know how far the potential shots are there in the spring. I have elk hunted the area and know that shots can be long. Should I step up to a larger set up? Not sure how much hiking we'll do vs just sitting and Glassing.
