Spring hunts in May involve glassing grass flats & exposed snow slides. Bears are feeding on new vegetation , winter killed moose, goat, and various roots. Females are coming into heat and males spend much time seeking them out. Spring hunts are my personal favorites, because of long daylight hours and mild weather.
Fall hunts in September and October involve hunting the salmon streams from tree stands or ground blinds during the peak of the salmon runs. Bears move in and out of the bordering brush while feeding on fish. Shots are usually at close range, very good opportunity for bow hunters.
