anyone doing any spring bear hunting. I have gone for the past 5 years and love it. But it seems so few other people chase bear that tiem of year.

I have never hunted bear but want to take a stab at it some time. I always tell myself if I ever come across a bear while deer hunting I would take it but never really had the chance.

Many states are beginning to stop the spring bear hunts due to pressure from the antis concerning shooting sows with cubs.

In NB it is illigal to kill a sow with cubs or cub (unlike here in Maine). I wish we had an open spring season here.

I hear that. I rarley eat bear taken in the spring, very tough meat and spoils quick. We hunt mostly for population control and the hides that time of year. It is the one hunt I do not eat what I kill. For the most part that is a rule I live by.
