Black Bear hunting
What is your success rate?
What is the average bear size taken?
What are the best dates to come on a hunt? Could I get hit with snow early or have lots of rubbed up bear hides and tons of bugs later?
Do you get many colored bears?
What do you use for bait and what kind of baiting system do you use?
Do you have any way to help me judge a bear's size, or sex? I don't want to accidentally shoot a small bear or sow.
Do you use trail cameras?
Can I get a bait that no one has hunted?
If I come on the later hunts won't all the baits be shot up?
How far do we have to travel to get to the baits? How do we access them?
How far are the shots? What kind of stands do you use?
Do you have a wound policy?
How do I get the bear hides home, or can I leave them with your taxidermist?
What clothes are best, what kind of camo? What temperatures, weather can I expect? Gear list?
