States with spring baiting season

What states are left that still offer a season for baited spring brear hunts? I know there are a few but not sure how many.

A close state that does is

A close state that does is Utah on their limited entry archery tags.  A good area is the Book Cliffs just across the border.  It holds some big bears and one of the biggest black bears that I have ever seen was down there.  One big problem is that they only offer 2 non-resident tags for the spring bear hunt.

Thanks for the info Critter.

Thanks for the info Critter. I had no idea Utah still had one. Since the draw is still open maybe I'll add that in and start to build points.

I applied antelope and deer already but will add bear if I still can.

If you are interested in Utah

If you are interested in Utah check out their guide book http://wildlife.utah.gov/dwr/hunting/guidebooks/449-2011-black-bear-guidebook.html

That and the application deadline is Feb 23.

I'll check out the bear this

I'll check out the bear this afternoon. I have applied in Utah for 3 years now for antelope and just started deer this year. My dad lives in Junction so heading over to the book cliffs is pretty close.

I have not hunted archery for a long time but have a used bow now a friend traded me. More incentive to pick it up and get back into it.
