I have been given the oppurtunity to go bear hunting next month. The only problem is i dont have any idea how to hunt bear. I have been hunting deer, turkey, quail, dove, and duck all my life just not bears. I would love to be able to go and try something new but i need to know some things before i go. 1. How do you tell the difference between male and female bears? Which one do hunters typically kill? 2. Where do you shoot a bear? In the head, or shoulder? 3. Is there a certain way to hunt them? Do you hunt over bait? Do you sit in a treestand or something different? 4. What caliber weapon do people typically use? I was going to use a .270... 5. What do you with the bear after its shot? I am guessing you clean it, but what parts do you eat? Any help is appreciated!
