Spring Bear

Discussion in 'General Hunting' started by Aimee Burnett-Hartwig, May 13, 2015.

  1. Is anyone else spring bear hunting? If so, where? We've been on the hunt in Idaho for a few weeks, but no luck yet.

  2. We have a few 18" bears coming in consistently but holding out for the bigger one!

    Ah shucks @Aimee Burnett-Hartwig that really stinks to hear that. Hopefully the tides change in your favour soon and ya have a bear on the ground. I'm hunting up here in Northern Saskatchewan. We went out last weekend and sat Friday and Saturday. Saw one two year old the first night and then at a different stand the second night saw another two year old and a serious hog of a bear but he just wouldn't give a shot. Sheesh the older they get the smarter they become. Can't a bear get Alzheimers? That would seriously help me out. Good luck to ya!

  4. Haha! Yes! It would be nice! This is my first bear season here in Idaho. We have a bait barrel set up and we've been scouting the hillsides, but to no avail. In Oregon, where I grew up, they were everywhere. Hopefully, you'll get a shot at that big boy next time you're out. I definitely want to see pics when you do. Best of luck!!

  5. This is my first bear season and I'm told patience is the name of the game when searching for a big boar. Hang in there if you're seeing them you're on the right path. Good luck!

  11. I'm headed out this weekend in Alaska with the boyfriend. We've got a good deal worked out - if it's a brown bear he gets to shoot, if it's a black bear I get a shot :) Hoping to fill the freezer with some delicious meat. @Rihana Cary fingers crossed I will need the recipe!

    Good Luck @Jackie Bartz! Not that I'm sure you boyfriend ain't a great guy and all but I'm hoping a monster, ginormous, mega huge black bear steps out and you can take him down!! Shoot Straight!!!

  18. He's a great looking bear Nikita! I'm not having much luck just yet, but I've got at least one weekend left to give it go. Good luck on your bear hunt later this month! :)

  19. I've been unbelievably busy, so this is really late in coming. But, I did shoot my first black bear this year. I shot him at about 40 yards with my .270 he squared at 6'4". Now that I have my first season under my belt, next year I will be using my bow.
