This week we dive into hunting the biggest, baddest critter in the eastern US, the Black Bear! We speak with longtime mountain, big woods bear hunter Jason Miller on how he keys in on the hangouts of large bears in the early season with archery equipment. Subjects covered include map scouting for bears, narrowing down what a bear needs to live and keying in on it (and why you'll find big Appalachian mtn bucks in the same spots many times), knowing what kind of sign to hunt, knowing how long to give a spot before moving on, safely blood trailing a wounded bear, and proper field care of the hide, fat and meat to ensure you get to bring home every usable part of the animal.
