    Not interested, I have done enough killing in my life. I enjoy watching them, but try not to kill anymore. We have way too many bears here, and I know there are young hunters for whom harvesting a nice bear would be a memorable experience.

    So where does a rookie (Alaska) hunter go to find these four bears? I am based here in Anchorage and have a lot of free time the next two weeks... A starting point would be great...

    Bears are everywhere. Repeating: Bears are everywhere. BUT......

    Shoot-able bears are where you can see them......Look where you can see open areas. Upper hillsides, around the shore of bays and lakes. It is that simple. The only other factor is amount of time spent outdoors in a conducive environment. I suggest camping, hiking, biking in this and other conducive areas. Bear sightings are directly related to time spent in their living area. I spend a lot of time hiking on the upper Kenai Peninsula, so I see a lot of bears.

    I'll be back down next month to try and get a bigger bear. What is the blueberry crop looking like down there?

    Totally agree with this, now getting to them, that is the real secret!
