When to hunt Bear?

Bear hunting dates depend on the bear’s greatest evolutionary adaptation: winter slumber.

Hunting methods All hunting methods (14)

Humans devised many ways of bear hunting. Sometimes bears are taken with dogs, packs of hounds in North America or one or two dogs of local breeds in Eurasia. Spot-and-stalk hunting is also possible in the wide open spaces of the Arctic and the American West, and so is still-hunting along salmon rivers. Calling a bear by imitating the sounds of its typical prey (such as fawn in distress) may also be effective.But by far the most common way of bear hunting is waiting for them on high seats or blinds positioned near artificial bait or a natural food source, such as an oat field.

Why hunt Bear? All hunts (454)

Bear hunting is a very emotional issue, as you can see in all debates about hunting. In the ages past humans had many reasons to hunt bears: delicious and highly nourishing meat and fat, warm skin, and getting rid of an unwelcome neighbor that will not miss an opportunity to kill livestock, maraude fields, and may maul and kill people. All these reasons are far from meaningless today. But it’s an open question what is the biggest drive for bear hunters - meal, rug and trophy book entry, or the challenge and the excitement of overcoming an intelligent and dangerous opponent.
