Im putting in for the bear hunt this coming year, what areas do you guys think have the better success rates? I have 6 points now, So pretty close to max points so theres a good chance I might draw. I have heard good things about the areas around Beaver , Manti lasal & bookcliff areas, but have never seen a bear while elk hunting those area's(very Rarely hunted those areas) I have seen a few bears around the currant creek/strawberry area, but not sure if I have actually seen enough of them around to specifically target them there. We all know the prime areas for elk like the monroe & Manti areas, but where are the best bear areas in the state? I dont know anyone with dogs, & really cant see myself paying a guide to do the work, so it will most likely be a spot & stalk type of hunt. Is the spring or fall hunt better?
