I'm thinking of bear hunting this year. I have one concern. You can get a bear tag here in two ways. OTC that lets you hunt along with the rifle seasons. Another way is the draw. That tag is good for the whole month of Sept. That's the one i'm interested in, because I don't hunt during Sept now. My deer and elk hunting is in Oct and Nov.
My concern is the Sept tag is a rifle tag. It means i'll be using a rifle along with bow and muzzleloader hunters. I would think every bow and ML hunter would turn me in when they see me with a rifle. I know i'll be legal, but I don't need the hastle from the hunters and wardens.
Has anybody experienced this?
