Archers only need an archery license and bear permit. If you will use a gun, even if you take your bow, you will need a big game license and bear permit.
This is going to be a fun hunt! AND we'll be there to see New England's FALL COLORS!! WOOHOOOO!!!!
Monie that time of the year should be a great time weather wise but the berries bushes will be some trouble if you're hunting over bait. The cost looks to me to be a good deal. The bears in the fall are tough to hunt but boy are they bigger and their coats look perfect compared to a rubbed out spring bear. I'm wondering if you're driving up there?
