    Spring bear 2019

    I'm planning a spring bear hunt for 2019. My question is which region is in the most need of a population reduction? I feel I would be contributing to conservation and at the same time filling my freezer.

    Thanks

    If you are not fussy about size, or color of bear, come up to Region 7. 2 bears in 2 days, hell 2 bears in one day! Lots of bears to choose from up here! Mid may to end of May be the best time! Moosin

    Hunting shows are constantly showcasing Van Island - hunters just walking up the FSR until they see something black, then stock it on the road to within 200 yards and POP - dead bear on the road.

    When (months) do the young ones get set on their own from the Sows?

    Wow that's amazing! I'll take a look at that area on a map and see what it looks like.

    Thanks

    there are bears everywhere...there is a lot of hunting pressure everywhere BUT spring bear is usually much quieter, because not enough people are taking advantage of bear hunting.

    We hit up region 7 last year and made it a trout fishing/bear hunting week trip.
    Was one of my favorite trips.
    Sleep in. Go fish a few hours. Have a trout shore lunch. Go hunt bears mid day to evening. Repeat.
