    A dear friend of mine invited me up to the early Black Bear opener on September 17th, in the Northern zone of New York. My first bear hunt, only going for the weekend, but I`m really excited! I`ll keep you posted when I get back home!! Wish us luck!

    Tip one over.


    I've always heard of a bear hide referred to as "Alaskan wallpaper!"

    Good luck!! I go to northern zone bear hunting annually! It's always a good time for sure. This year I'm pushing my trip out to the 29th - Oct 2nd so I can dual deer and bear. I've seen quite a few bears up there but they're extremely skiddish. Our approach this year is back country. We're taking two canoes across a few different lakes with some portage involved to get away from pressured educated bears.

    Good luck!!!

    My husband hunted up state NY last year with a friend of his - got a nice bear with his bow. He said it was the most exciting bow hunt yet.

    Good luck!

    You will love bear hunting, it is a rush when you see them from the stand. Good luck.

    Thermocell. I used it in Ontario when I got my bear. It's great.
