Ok I know its probly a little early to be asking about bears but, I have never hunted bear before and found some public land that I can hunt them this year and figured I would give it a try. I live in Georgia so the season doesn't start for a few more months, I just thought I would go ahead and ask now so I could be prepared when the season rolls around. As far as I know in Georgia you can't bait so what do you do? Spot and stalk or just sit and hope one passes by? Would using a distress call or something bring them in? Basically what all do I need to know about bear hunting? I just want to be prepared when the season rolls around

find some natural baits- if any fruits are ripe at that time you should be able to find them in the fruit crops. Bear have a naturally sweet tooth. I don't know Georgia at all... so thats all the advice I can give.

I glass open grass patches near creeks the greener and wetter the better and in the summer/fall when berries com on i switch to looking in berry patches but we have a lot of units with lot of food. If you don't have large areas you can glass then game calls do work well if you can find an area a bear has been working i would call for at least 45 min to an hour it may take them awhile to come in.

In the fall you need to follow their food source, and they generally will be pretty close to a water source. Good luck, its very addicting in my opinion
