Anyone gonna partake? Come on April ! I absolutely love spring bear hunting!
I was thinking about it, but the only spring hunt round' here is on tribal land and requires a guide, I'd rather wait and go myself this fall!
Not this year, but hopefully I can hit up Alberta in the near future.
About how much would it cost for out of state permit and tag for bears?
I have a friend that goes every year for Spring bear. He claims it's 800 bucks plus beer and gas. I'm getting closer to going one of these year. I'd say within 5 years I could make that happen, but first comes the house this Spring and then the second child the year after. Who knows what life holds, but I'd like to think I could get up there after those two hurdles.
Depends on where you go for sure, in Maine it's $114 for a nonresident big game licence and $74 for a bear permit
so if i came to maine with a stand and 200 bucks i could hunt public land for bears?
Sounds like it to me, that'd be tough though you'd want to be sitting over a bait site.
i can't wait!!!!!!! myself included i have 4 people to put on bears! that's a lot of stands to place and bait cams ect to tend for nothing but i'm still pumped!
i'm not taking anything under p&y myself in the spring. but i'll let the kids take whatever they are happy with.
Yea, i would love to get out and take a bear for the first time!
How much would it be for a place already set up where you live?
I would sped 800 for a bear hunt anyday! where does your buddy go?
I'm not sure what he's charging this year but the owner of the proshop I help out at is a master Maine guide and does bear hunts every year, lodging and food included. PM me if you want more info, our area has one of the highest pop. densities in the state.
Count down has started.
A stand, $200 bucks and a steak.
I dont think baitin bears is legal in Cali, I wouldn't hunt bear without backup, lol
Baitings definitely the most popular method of hunting bear here. Yeah most guys use a sidearm handgun or rifle doesn't really matter.
Yep i will deff. be hunting bear in April. Hopefully this little bit of snow melts in the mountains so i can get up there and start looking around. Hopefully i'll have more luck than last year.
