Pennsylvania Bear season

I put an x on my topo map 2 years ago and have been trying to get the time to hunt bears there. My friend and I went to scout the area last week and found bear sign everywhere! We hunted it on the opening day (my friend sat exactly where the x was on the map) and he killed a bear there at 6:45 on the opening day(his shot broke the silence). When the drivers started walking through those swamps the bears were running everywhere. We must have heard 50 shots (most multiple at the same bear) and I'm sure they killed 8-10 in that swamp that morning. It was one of the most exciting hunts I have been on, even though I was only ther 3 hours before he came to get me to help get the bear out and to the check station.

Pennsylvania Bear season

Pa bear season is always the monday, tuesday and wednesday before Thanksgiving. In the area of the state that I hunt them (wmu3d) you can also hunt bear during the first week of rifle deer season. They added several more zones to the extended season this year but I am not familiar with thier proximity to Pittsburg. I am about a 4 1/2 hour drive from there. I understand the "elk habitat" counties have outstanding bear populations and an extended season that closes on Saturday.

Pennsylvania Bear season

The spot that we were hunting is prime. The preperation and the work put into this hunt by hunter777 was pretty impressive. He had mostly everything all planned out with the exception of a couple of minor details. But I would have to agree that this was one of my most exciting hunts of all time!!!
