Spring Spot-N-Stalk for Black Bear
Posted by Michael Strahan on Apr 27 2006
Hi folks,

Lots of interest this year in spring bear, and I thought perhaps a thread on spot-and-stalk black bear hunting would be in order.  I'm not talking about PWS bear hunting necessarily, but about hike-in type of hunts, or glassing type of hunts.

So, what do you do?  What advice would you offer to a new black bear hunter interested in this approach?

1.  What sort of places do you glass and why? (not looking for location names, just the types of areas and such)

2.  General tips and tricks?

3.  Special gear?

Thanks in advance for helping!  There are lots of new folks in here and this will really help some of them have a succcessful spring hunt.
