No bear hunting advice????????????

Welcome to the site. One big tip,,,don't get ate! Big smile I haven't hunted bears in years. One thing I will say tho. Use enough bullet. That means fairly heavy for caliber.

Big question!!!!
Like Don said "don't get ate" (I like that)
Well, where are you hunting and how (ie W/dogs, over bait, spot and stalk or stand/still hunting)?
Lots of different ways to hunt most (excluding hounds) involve food in one way or another. Find food (or put food out) find bear sign, hunt bear.

-Ok what is "WMA" Wildlif Mgt Unit (state?),Western Mgt of some kind, Western Mass, or............?????
-Never assume
-"Extra Knives" Think Think Think guess I really don't want to know.
-Dont give your hunting partner any bullets Thumbs up
-You don't need relief you need to know what, when and how!

Given the time of year I am thinking maybe a spring hunt?
