high percentage of color phase bears
Spring & Fall
Spring bear are hunted in the lower elevations, in the green southern slopes (mid April to May). Fall bear hunts are in higher elevations off huckleberry patches with spectacular views. Fall bear hunts are Mid September to the End of October.
This is also a great time to pick up Shed Antlers and see Elk while hunting bear. Both Spring and Fall bear have very high success rates.
