I think a thread dedicated to spot and stalk black bear hunting would be interesting, nothing against bait hunting just think spot and stalk is more the Eastman's way of hunting. I plan on giving it a try with my bow this spring and would like to talk to other hunters taking on the same challenge.
Bait, spot and stalk, it's all good! I think just a general Black Bear topic would be great. Then, you could start your own spot and stalk thread from there. I'd really like to see it added; it is always fun talking to other bear hunters.
