We have some awesome spot & stalk bear hunting here in Alberta. The key is to hunt a zone that doesn't allow baiting. Glass the powerline and pipeline rights of way, and you'll see them. Two - three stalks a day is not uncommon, and the chances of success are very good. When those bears have their faces buried in the clover, sneaking in for a shot isn't real hard for a good bowhunter. Late August can be really good, and you'll see 25 - 30 bears in a week.
