You have to put in for the spring tag in advance because they cap the number of tags for spring. Fall is right over the counter. The couple of guides I know run a success rate of about 80-90%!! For spot and stalk that is huge. I see several "shooters" every season. That would be bears in the 300lb range with skulls or 18 inches.
Steve Happenstahl is a excellent guide for blacktails and bears. I can get you his number if you are interested.
Thanks. Sure would be worth looking into. I have done it over bait and have watched a few s & s shows for bears with a bow and that has to be just as nerve rattling if not more so than watching over a bait. And the price is real good in comparison to some other hunts.
