"Want to hunt" black bear on the Kuskokwim River, where is the best place to go? area with a high chance of success. I never hunted them before, but I seen one before, once on the Holitna River when I was hunting moose, it ran into the woods so fast that me and my hunting partners never even had a chance to try a shot. I am really interested in planning a trip in the near future. Heard that the meat was pretty good eating and the hides are really nice. Any recommendations?
