I have hunted Black Bears successfully in the spring along the coast of British Columbia where we concentrated on the beaches and river mouths. The bears were out seeking green grass.
I have been invited to come to Alaska and hunt black bear with friend who lives in Alaska. He fishes in Prince William Sound but does not bear hunt. He suggested that I come in early June rather than in May because the fishing would be better. I am concerned that the Black Bears will be rubbed at that time of the year.
I have searched prior posts and it would seem that there are plenty of black bear hunting opportunities in Prince William Sound.
I HAVE 2 QUESTIONS...............
IS EARLY JUNE TOO LATE?
We would be launching out of Valdez. His boat is 26 foot long. He tells me that it sleeps 3 people. He also has access to a zodiak for beach landings.
IN WHAT AREAS WOULD YOU SUGGEST THAT WE CONCENTRATE OUR SEARCH FOR BLACK BEARS?
