I recently moved to charlottesville va and want to try and have set my mind to killing a black bear this year. I live very close to the george washington national forest and will most likely hunt there.
How do you find a place to set up. I know you can look for scat but I hear that bear are not patterned animals like deer are. Whereas deer return to the same place at the same time most days a bear is random and will just wander around. So how do you determine where to set up a tree stand if you can't predict where the bear will be? Is there a strategy to it?
