Great Footage Of A Spring Bow Hunting Experience!

No matter how calm and cool you think you are, even the most seasoned hunters get a little rush of adrenaline. You never know how things will turn out no matter how experienced you are.
Spring bears come out hungry and will generally do just about anything for a meal. They will gravitate toward any and easiest food sources. They love the green grass when they first come out but they will eat almost anything. Green grass comes out on the south slopes so that is a very good place to start your search.
Stalking them right is critical you have to position yourself down wind because they use their sense of smell rather keenly, their eyes and ears may fail but their noses never do.
The average weight of a spring black bear boar is around 200 to 350 pounds. They become heavier as the year progresses and as they start to fatten up. Some can get up to 800 pounds but that is a massive size for a bear. Not sure I would want to take one of those big ones on bow hunting.
Baiting bear is one of the most popular and effective ways for spring hunting. Placing the bait in the right area is very important to whether or not you will get a good coverage for the bears. Then place your treestand in the best area and all that is left to do is wait and see what happens.
