Backcountry Black Bear - Spring (April thru June)

Backcountry Black Bear - Spring (April thru June)

The annual, backcountry Spring Black Bear Hunt is a favorite amongst the Gear Fool Staff, often taking us to the more remote and mountainous regions offered by both Idaho and Montana alike. It's a prime opportunity to emerge from the long cold season had in an effort to once again trial both person and gear, both old and new. If you can survive the tick-laden landscapes and steep terrain, well then camaraderie and adventure are often your reward during this hunt. Here's a breakdown of some quality gear (with options) that will elevate your performance and enhance your experience this Spring, when the grass turns green again and bruins present themselves once again:
