I'm planning my first Black Bear Hunt for later this year. I plan on hunting one from a tree stand using my bow. Any tips/hints or any help would be greatly appreciated. I want to get my first black bear while my grandfather is still around, considering his favorite hunting story he always loved to tell me was his first black bear hunt. He keeps having health problems lately so, this is kind of for him as much as it is for me. One thing I'm very much interested in getting any advice on is the removal of a Bruin from the woods. I live in massachusetts and we are like the third most dense state in north america. I'm most likely going to be by myself so any advice on the removal of one of these beasts from the forests would be very helpful.
