First post here, I've been reading the forums for awhile now.
Son and I will be heading up to Vermont for our second year of bear hunting. Last year we didn't get any, but had a fantastic time in the woods (first year hunting for anything!).
One thing we've noticed in a lot of the hunting videos we've been watching is that it seems like a lot of people get their bears in the afternoon. Are bears more active in the afternoon than morning? Last year we went out early to be in place at first light, then came back for lunch, then went out for a while in the afternoon. Is it worth being out first thing in the morning?
Well, let me rephrase that: It is always worth being out hunting at any time, but should we be making more of an effort in the afternoon?
Thanks for any responses!
