Need some advice for ya'll experianced hunters.
I've applied for a controled quota bear hunt here in VA. Is on the Dimal Swamp NWR. Its a shotgun slug only and from a stand I believe. Haven't been able to get squat for info from the Fish and Game office. Its a 2 day hunt and hunters are assigned a zone to hunt. Baiting is also illegal. No scouting is allowed but the bear numbers are really high. Anyway here is my question.
If I'm drawn is there anything I can do to help improve my odds. I was thinks of bringing a couple of distress calls as this is legal. But I don't want to possible scare any off so that was a late last day option. This hunt seems to be a sit and hope ya get lucky type of hunt. I just want a bear so darn bad and want to make the best of this controled hunt.
