I and a few friends are heading to Montana in May for a black bear hunt. I'm just taking a shot in the dark to see if anyone could shed light on general info (or specific if you feel like it) on productive areas to hunt. I will be in the NW Montana area around Bull River Lake. For natives of the area, or those knowledgeable, I have the opportunity to hunt around Sawtooth Mtn, Spar Lake, Little Spar Lake, Government Mtn and the general Cabinet Mtn Wilderness in that vicinity. Its obviously a large area and I was hoping someone with experience there could shed a bit of light on some general areas that they've seen bears hanging out in the spring. Not asking for any honey holes just some general direction of areas that are more productive than others. Any advice is greatly appreciated and best of luck to all this season.
