Spot and Stalk spring black bear hunting - A seemingly unattainable feat. Add record setting winter and spring precipitation and the challenge becomes even greater.
Rain and snow levels for the state of Montana are 170 percent above average. Heavy spring rain and snow, on top of an already deep snowpack has made for major flooding across all of Montana. Black bears emerged from their dens nearly four weeks later than normal in lieu of the stormy weather. Needless to say, the bear season was slow to start.
On my thirteenth day out, after previously not spotting a single bear, I spotted a younger boar and was able to make a solid play on him that resulted in my first archery killed Montana black bear.
