I got lucky and drew this tag on second chance. I've hunted it in the spring and have some locations to check out but am curious on a few things from others who have hunted this unit for bear in the fall.
What are the bears feeding on in the fall? (not counting gut piles)
Are they found in higher densities at a particular elevation?
Are the hounds an issue for someone not using hounds and looking to spot and stalk?
Is it possible to predator call in a good bear? Never tried but I'd like to try and spot and stalk with archery gear. figured getting close and mouse squeeking might be a fair method. If I'm not finding good bears, I was thinking of finding some roadless thicker country and getting loud on the call with a rifle on standby.
Are the bears active all the way through Oct 31 or is earlier in the hunt better?
Anyone have any luck finding a decent buck while hunting bear?
Thanks in advance. lots of questions but figured some of you may have some input.
