Thread: Big-Su Bears

    Default Big-Su Bears

    If anyone has some good advice for hunting black bears along the Big Su I would apperciate it. I drove the boat from Deshka Landing up to Montana Creek on Saturday and did'nt see a thing. I must admit that at any given time we only had one adult actually scoping real hard for bears...We could have missed some. I am trying to get my 11 year old his first bear. There was A-LOT of river bank! Should I go further up-river?

    This early, most of the bear activity is below Alexander Creek. The first thing they do is to hit the smelt along the river bank. I would go downstream of Bell Island. Staying in the western channel is always a good bet.

    something that often works for finding bear is to just shut'er down and drift down river late, after 10pm. The stretch from Deshka to Alexander can be really good.

    Thanks guys...I have not tried to go down-stream for bears from Deshka Landing yet. I'll give it a shot!
