    It depends on the year. Weather and food availability are two of the biggest factors that seem to influence denning. I have seen bears up on berries clear into late october, but last year they were very hard to find by mid October. I have heard that the bears go back to the rivers to eat dead fish in october before denning. I don't hunt the rivers for bears so this may or may not be true.
