Name's Marc, from Santa Clarita CA (by Magic Mountain, North of LA by about 40 miles. This is my first year hunting animals of any sort. I was in the Marine Corps and am lookng for something fun and plentiful. My uncles are all hunters so I am learning from them. I have a deer and a bear tag. I wasnt initially planning on trying to exclusively hunt bear, more of a hunt the deer and see if I find a bear type scenario, but now I think I will go for the deer, and if/when I get it, I will definitely plan another trip exlusively for bear. I will be either using a 30-06 or a 7mm mag.

MHP is not interested in bear hunting, and i do not want to go alone remembering my last 4 bear hunts. So i'm stuck pretty much with deer hunt.

Where were you and what happened on those last 4 Bear hunts?
OK is this wrong, do I need to go some where else to ask?
Don't want to step on it again

They were very successful hunts, but 3 of them were very difficult and the 4th one even i harvested the bear 100 yards from the road, due to the terrain and me being only with my wife and my daughter took some significant afford.
So, i know the value of a hunting partner, that's it.
While i often hunt alone, for bear i will not do it.

I agree with JustGuy. One of the toughest game retrieves I was ever involved in was a big bear my buddy shot. Never again. Now we still shoot bears occasionally but not where we cannot get them out easily. I saw one really big bear last year in D-3 that was too tough for me to retrieve so I ignored it. I saw a couple of others also but anymore for me they need to be around 150-200 pounds and not impossible to retrieve. I like bear meat but it needs to be in the right location for me to take one now. I do hunt by myself a lot since I hunt weekdays as much as possible.
As far as where I hunt bears it is mostly in D 3-5 because that is the area I know.

OK thought maybe you got one of those Bears from Hell that wanted to even the score. totally understand dragging them out alone, wore the adrenaline off really quick.
