Twenty-eight states now offer black bear seasons, and much of Canada boasts healthy, huntable bear populations. Radical Bear Hunter presents innovative approaches to give hunters an edge for success. Included is valuable biological information, tips for reading bear sign and determining a trophy, as well as proven strategies for baiting bears, hunting with hounds, spotting and stalking, and setting up scouting cameras. Hunters learn how to choose the right outfitter, or if they prefer, how to coordinate a do-it-yourself hunt. Scorzafava recounts his favorite bear hunts and shares some hair-raising close calls--radical experiences that will resonate with would-be adventurers.
