I know that in the summer bears like to eat a variety of plants, berries etc... So i think that they would be more likely to put themseleves in an area where they have the most opportunity to get what they need.
Hey I didn't sign up either but I would like to play. My answer is 5 none of the above. As I have seen bears in all of the areas listed above from the high most pine mountain top to the lower mixed timber valleys and out in the open high desert. Also as bears are roamers and thier habitat has to due more with food then water.
This is the nail i would like to be # 16!! .I 've been trapping bears since a long time and bagged quite a few so I have a little bit of know how to catch them in a snare but I'm not too good on the hunting of bears .There seems to be a lot of bears on the go now so maybe It wouldn't be hard now days to hunt one , but I like the snares .A pretty sure way to get your bear .I had a trail timer on a trail one time and the bear was coming in at 4 am i can't see me sitting in a tree at that time of morning .I love the snares .It's a pretty sight to see a bear in a snare .Quite a rush .Anyway I 'll keep checking the fourm for any more news
If you're like me and use a plastic tote to store your gear in then you might want to read further. When plastic totes are manufactured they are typically shipped with the lid on. This makes the inside of the tote smell like the plastic it's made of. To remove the plastic smell from the tote I use baking soda. I open the baking soda up and leave the box in the tote with the lid on for about a month to remove the plastic smell. I tried just leaving the lid off but I was still able to smell...
