Spring bear

Recommended Posts

Going to give bear hunting a go for the first time. Think I have a few area scouted out, anything specific to look for on the spring hunts? Thanks

I'm no bear expert but I have read they like fresh young green grasses in the spring.  Look for green up.

I’ve been reading the same. I appreciate the replies. We will see how it goes.

I’m new to hunting and have never hunter bears. Is spring bear OTC or on a draw? I’ve seen articles that make it seem to be OTC but the regs don’t show anything for the spring?

I just realized there was a separate book for javelina, bears, bison etc. 

 

It looks like you can hunt otc bear in 24a and 23n starting 3/19 through 4/29, good to know!

Look at Spring regs, it will be listed there. Don’t get the fall Regs and spring Regs mixed up

here is a link for you buddy

Thanks. I was bummed because I missed the spring applications while distracted with my frost deer hunt. I’m bummed that I missed javelina but I’m glad I can go try my hand at a spring bear hunt! And if I’m not successful I can try again in the fall!

Make sure you call n check during the hunt too cuz they close when harvest objectives are met.
