Are the rest of the units unlimited tags? Do all bear permits need to be purchased before Feb. 15th or just the controlled hunt units?

Aside from the controlled hunts I believe all the other bear hunts are unlimited and basically over-the-counter tags. The interesting thing about the controlled hunts FOR CONTROLLED SPRING BEAR is that the applic period is roughly mid-Jan thru mid-Feb. Everything else seems to happen later in the spring (other controlled hunt apps, regular bear spring hunts, etc.). I haven't done any bear hunting yet. It will be opportunity to get into some neat country (controlled or in regular areas).

I seem to recall that in the (recent) past there have been some two-bear and two-cougar areas. I suspect it will be the same this year. Idaho seems to have become the predator state.

Thanks. The unit I am going to hunt in June is a 2 bear unit.
