spring bear-hunting season opens the end of April and continues
into the third week of June and the fall season begins the
last week of August and runs until the first week of October.
However, because of our northern
location we don't begin the hunt until the middle of May in the spring
ends around mid to late September in the fall. The upside to hunting
in the north is the lack of hunting pressure and the availability of
excellent hides throughout both the spring and fall seasons.
hunter can only obtain a Black Bear
hunting license through an outfitter, and can only harvest
one bear per calendar year. The holder of a black bear or moose
license is permitted to take a Timber Wolf in the fall seasons
if one presents itself, providing the Black Bear or moose license
is unused at the time of the wolf kill. Even after the wolf
kill the hunter can continue to harvest a bear or moose.
Bear and Timber Wolf are extremely sensitive to human odor.
Large bears and wolves are very cautious and can usually pick
up any unusual movements or misplacements in there home range.
If the animal is aware of the hunter in the area he will wait
you out and come in the safety of darkness.
