I am originally from MT and just gained residency in AK. I have hunted my whole life in MT and I am looking to get out and hunt black bear this fall and, to be honest, am a little intimidated. I did a little bit of hunting this spring with no luck, and wondering if anyone has any ideas for me. Techniques, tips, or (I know this may be a little touchy, but here goes...) locations! I am not afraid to do some walking and am looking for trail heads. I hear that there is some merit to getting above the tree-line and glassing up in the berries. Any ideas on spot-and-stalk, fall black bear within a couple hour drive of anchorage would be great, and I will take any pointers I can get. Thanks for you help, and PM me if you would prefer!
