I live in Venango county PA and I am planning on going black bear hunting this fall. I'm going to be honest I know hardly anything about black bear hunting. I know they like brush. I have two spots near my house were there is some brush (older clearcuts). I also have a lot of eastern hemlocks. Do bears tend to hang out in these or advoid them. I don't have anyone to really go with so a drive is out of the question. What are some tactics I could use? Also what should I look for when scouting? Do they follow a routine? Any tips would be appreiciated.
