INSIDER Update: Black Bear OTC Hunt Data Now Live!
We are very excited to announce our newest INSIDER feature: black bear over-the-counter data. This new enhancement will help open the doors for hunters looking to add a black bear hunt to their season. You'll now be able to find the perfect black bear unit that meets all the criteria you want in a hunt.
We have information for both spring and fall seasons.
Like our other research data, you’ll have Filtering 2.0 to quickly decide where hunt over the counter black bear in each state with additional filters for number harvested, weapon type, season dates and a lot more. Once you've gotten that portion of your research nailed down, you will be prepared to jump into the Unit Profiles to get a better look at the terrain, access, vegetation, temperature/precipitations and many other features.

Sorting by the number of bears harvested per unit
One of the most impactful tools for locating a spring bear hunt is the number of bears harvested in each unit. And in Filtering 2.0 this information has never been easier to find! Plus, you can also sort all the OTC units from highest to lowest harvest to see what units are trending. You can also select the season (spring or fall) to further figure out the best bear hunt based on the time of year.
Next, you can take things one step further and adjust the "Animals Harvested" filter to eliminate units that don't meet a certain number of bears taken.
Once you land on a Unit Profile, you can also see trends on the number of bears taken in each unit.
