I am new to the idea of bear hunting. I stumbled across a real nice Black Bear while working in the woods. I have always bought a tag, for the just in case scenario. Well, I happened to be unarmed at the time and am bear hunting in my sleep now. I can't get it out of my head!! Anyway I visited the area again today and with a trace of snow, I found the entire area just beat down with tracks. I can't see where he has wandered out of this area by circling the area looking for tracks in the snow.
So I need some advice. How do I proceed? Just show up and hunt like I hunt deer or elk? Set up a bait station? Gather up a gang and 'Push' the hillside?
