Face to Face Black Bear Hunting Ain’t for Sissies

Face to face black bear hunting will get your heart pumping.

Hunting black bears over bait is a proven tactic. The technique typically results in lots of bear sightings and gives hunters time to judge bears against a known object (like a bait barrel) before shooting.

Most baited black bear hunts take place from a ground blind or a treestand located downwind of the bait. But for the most adrenaline filled experience, give face to face black bear hunting a try.

Watch as Mark Kayser discusses some other advantages to hunting bruins from ground level.

Whether you choose to bait bears, call them in with a predator call, or drive them from thick cover like we do here in Pennsylvania, face to face black bear hunting is a serious rush.

Take a second to compose yourself before shooting and you’ll come away with a pile of meat and unique trophy to commemorate your hunt.
