I don't know what state is better but I know that Penn state has some real monsters.
I call bears all the time, and some times they respond. Here is a link to my most recent bear I called in. http://www.biggamehunt.net/node/14038
I have family that live in the pocono's mts. in Pennsylvania, and all I hear about is the amount of bears that are up there, the only thing is, you might want to check into it, I have heard that Pennsylvania has a more conservative bear season that only runs for like 1 week.
Where is bear hunting better? West Virginia or Pennsylvania?
Has anyone every tried to call black bear?
If you want to hunt outside of the U.S. Nova Scotia has bear in excess,check out a few of the photos in the photo section on my site.If you need any questions answered email me I'll be happy to help you anyway I can.Good hunting!Here is a sample of what we offer.Hunter from Arkansas on the right - took this P/Y 600+ Male 3 days into his hunt.
I have a place in the Poconos of Pa. Yes there are lots of bears but there are lots more hunters. The seasons are strict. No baiting and no hounds so, you litterally need to get lucky and thats not easy. There have been several bears harvested in the last 2 years within 15 miles of my place that went over 800 pounds....but, in Pa there are more than 140,000 bear hunts and they average around 3,000 bears a season. Ods are not good. If WV is an option I would look into that.
How you doing? Did you get your copy of Trap and Trail yet? The story is there but they didn't use any of the pics....Oh well.
The seasons in Tn will be set soon. I'm putting in for the time off as soon as I know for sure what days.
Thank you all,
I'm going to bow hunt in W Va.
I need advice on broad heads. I shoot (100 grain head carbon shaft at 65# 60% let off)
Will that be good enough?
If that fail's we will go to the hound's...
There can be too much of a good thing with antler rattling.
I like to hit the horns together for a good 30- to 40-second rattling sequence and then hang them up and resist the urge to hit them again.
This works to the hunter's advantage, because if a buck has heard it, he may have been 300 or 400 yards away and he comes in and he's not exactly sure where it came from.
When finally is time to rattle again throw a slight change-up into the routine.
The second time, don't rattle as loud...
