just wondering what spring bear seasons are like in the other states in this region. WA started a spring bear season about 5 years ago. It is a special permit hunt, unit specific. I've applied every year and haven't yet been drawn yet, go figure. There are some worthy units for a bowhunter though. No bait/ no hounds here.

Thanks to some other PBS'ers I've had a chance to hunt spring bears in AK, and 'd do that every year if I could....

Tell me what the spring bear options are in your state (input from outside this region is welcome as well)

There is no SPRING season here yet...only Fall Season, No Baiting.

This info was for our 2014 Season:


We have a season in Game Zone 1 up in Mountain district....runs about a week in October on Private Land....then following week they allow dog hunts. $25 for resident tag and $100 for nonresident.

In our Game Zone 5 (Williamsburg, Horry and Georgetown Counties ONLY) it is by computer drawing only....10 tags issued in Williamsburg and 45 tags in both Horry and Georgetown each. $25 for resident tag and $100 for nonresident. Must apply NLT Sep19....Season Oct 24- Nov 5.



Our bear population is growing and some big ones....just not high density.

Hence reason I am going to Sask (Carrot River area) on 30 May...for a week...or two. :)

Hey Dan, down here in Oregon most spring bear hunts are in the coastal units and are also special permit. There is a group of SW coastal units that are put together in a "first come first served" over the counter tag, with the limit of tags issued around 4,000. That's what I usually go with. More opportunities, but also more hunters. But, I also get my spring turkey tag as that's also where most turkey are concentrated in Oregon, and try to double up.
