I have hunted them in Wisconsin a few times, and I plan on hunting them this fall in Minnasota. I took my 1st bear (and smallest) many years ago with a rifle and vowed to kill the rest with bow. My biggest was a 500 pound monster I arrowed just outside the City limets in Wausau Wisc.

For bear, most folks go to the TN side of the Smokies....I know a fellow who traveled to NC to hunt. Bear are showing up more and more all over East TN, even middle TN some.

The 500 pounder was from the Wausau area, Zone "C"...
The pic of the big one in the woods is from "A-1" near Drumlin.
The Gun bear was from zone "B"
If I ever get one in zone "A" I will have gotten one in each.

I have been in a few hunting Magazines. Here is a link to the story about the 500 pound bear ( The bath tub bear )

While we are on the bear subject... My last Wisc. bear hunt was quite exciting, even though I was more the mentor, than the hunter. I made a few mistakes on his bear hunt, and they almost cost me dearly.... Read this article about my sons 1st bear hunt and almost my last ....

Default I'm with you dude...

the gun would definitely be Backup Plan A if yer talking about bear. Backup Plan B (run like a mad man) doesn't always work. Option C (crap yer pants while running) is smelly, and equally ineffective.
