PWS spring black bear
I have some free time in the middle of April and was thinking of taking the boat out of Whittier and seeing if I might find me a blackie. Am I going to be wasting my time in mid April, should I wait till mid May.
Your never wasting your time because you might encounter a giant boar, with a super prime pelt, rising early in April. But most PWS black bear come out and are hunted later in May and even in June.
You will not have much hunting competition in April, but you will in May-June.
